Joan Rivers on Charlie Sheen, Sarah Palin and girls’ night out
By Greg Hernandez
HollywoodNews.com: As a longtime fan of Joan Rivers, I checked out the first two episodes of her new reality series ‘Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best.’ It had some laughs because Joan is a very funny woman but the situations created in the show are so contrived that it was a turnoff.
But I wish her the best with it and all that she does and am happy to share with you some excerpts of a new ‘Advocate’ interview with the mother of reinvention:
On Charlie Sheen:
I think he’s an ass. When you have a child, darling, you’d better start setting an example. Childhood for you is over when you have a child. I find it outrageous to be carrying on like that. I also think that when you get the gold ring you have an obligation. The old studio system made you have an obligation to live a clean life and be the example. What am I going to tell my grandson who watches ‘Two and Half Men’? I just think he’s awful.
On Her Recent Sarah Palin Controversy:
Yes. Thank you, thank you, God, for her sending that daughter who can’t dance to Dancing With the Stars. You wait for the Kate Gosselins of the world who don’t know the names of all their children. As a comedian you pray for things like this. Oh, yes! The only thing we’re being careful of is poor Zsa Zsa Gabor and her one leg. I have a great joke, but I just can’t do it yet. [Laughs] But, yes, you pray for things like that.
On Sticking By Her Statement That Gay Celebrities Stay Closeted:
Yes. You are supposed to be a heartthrob, and you want the little teenage girls’ hearts to go pitter-patter. That’s what brings in the money. You know what? Let them stay in the closet and send a big check to AIDS research. Let them come out like Ricky Martin did, when you want to come out. However, if it isn’t going to affect your career and if you’re not the heartthrob, then shame on you for not coming out.
