Comedian and TV personality Joan Rivers called in this morning to talk about the new season of her hit reality series Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best on WE TV.
In the second episode premiering this Saturday at 10pm, Joan undergoes an extreme make-under where she’s gets dressed up like “an old lady.” She told us it’s all to go head to head with another famous veteran actress, Betty White.
“Betty White is getting all the attention and all the parts – she gets the Depends commercials, she gets the Boniva stuff. I’m tired of this, ” she cracked.
In addition to her sharp tongue and quick wit, Joan is know as much for her plastic surgery as she is for her comedy. On the topic of her plastic surgery, Joan made light of her surgeries over the years and laughs when people tell her it looks better in person than it photographs on TV.
“Let me tell you, I’ve been told so much that I have hemorrhoids in the back of my neck,” Joan quipped.
Joan has always been know to push the limits of comedy and never hold back on her true feelings. In the first episode of season four of Joan & Melissa, the show has already gotten off to a big bang and is making people talk. Why? Because Joan decided she wanted to make a sex tape so she could launch her own Rivers family empire like the Kardashians.
“And we did it and we got huge numbers,” she said. “The Kardashians did a porn video and they now are the Kardashians…and I wanted Melissa to do it.”
Though her daughter Melissa ultimately said no to her mom, Joan joked about her disappoint in her daughter refusing to do it saying, “how dare she. It’s a family business. I’m tired of having to do all the work.”
