Joan Rivers can always be relied on to speak her mind on talk shows; it’s one of her many charms. And her appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday did not disappoint.
Asked by a viewer to recall the “worst backlash she ever received” for her snarky E! show Fashion Police, the 80-year-old comedian didn’t miss a beat in naming names.
“The worst criticism was, ugh, Gwyneth Paltrow,” Rivers said, and made a face.
“She came in and yelled at us, but she stood up,” Rivers said. “She couldn’t sit down because she’s got a stick up her rear end.”
Host Andy Cohen had to cover his face to disguise his reaction to Rivers’s blunt comments.
“The ‘world’s most beautiful woman’ voted on by Helen Keller and Stevie Wonder,” Rivers continued.
Even that made fellow guest Tracy Morgan go “Oohhhhh”.
“You love a Helen Keller joke, don’t you?” Cohen said.
