Joan Rivers Refuses To Apologize For Her Tasteless “Joke” About The Cleveland Kidnapping Victims

Not Funny, Joan

Joan Rivers made a not-so-funny “joke” on “The Today Show” yesterday about the three Cleveland women who were kidnapped by deranged creep Ariel Castro and held captive in his home for a decade. When describing how cramped her daughter’s guest room in her home is, Rivers joked that “Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space,” much to the horror and awkward fumbling of her “Today” interviewers.

Word got back to the kidnapping victims Amanda Berry, Gina de Jesus, and Michelle Knight, who were deeply offended. Lawyers for  DeJesus and Berry reached out to Rivers in a statement:

Our clients have become aware of Joan Rivers’ unfortunate comparison of living in her daughter’s guest room to their captivity. We understand that Ms. Rivers is a comedienne; however, the idea that a celebrity would say something this hurtful, on national television, no less, is beyond shocking and disappointing. Our clients are strong, private women who have endured unwanted and often painful media attention for quite some time. They now have to endure this, which is a new low, and we believe a sincere apology is warranted.

Rivers, however, feels she has nothing to apologize for. “They got to live rent free for more than a decade. One of them has a book deal. Neither are in a psych ward. They’re okay. I bet you within three years one of them will be on ‘Dancing With The Stars,’” she told TMZ. Damn, Joan.  Keep reading »

Mariah Carey Did A Whole “Today Show” Interview In Wearing A Silk Robe & Agent Provocateur Slippers

Mariah Being Mariah

If I was a celebrity, I would be just like Mariah Carey. She’s got a “pink room” — that she doesn’t let her kids into — in her home  filled with pink cushions and rugs and a chandelier (obvs). Her Christmas tree is decorated with dozens of real peonies. And she gave this entire interview while wearing a silky cream-colored robe and Agent Provocateur slippers, which she takes off and tosses on the floor at the end. How do I say this? I LOVE HER. Also, I didn’t know until watching this clip but Mariah Carey actually co-wrote “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” AKA the best Christmas song ever. “I wanted to make the most festive song that would always make people happy,” she said. All this time I had no idea! Is it possible to love her even more? [TODAY]

Why Ann Curry Really Got The Boot

If you thought things seemed a little, well, cold between Matt Lauer and Ann Curry on her final Today show appearance, there’s good reason for that, a source tells Us Weekly: “Matt Lauer is 100% behind Ann leaving,” the insider claims. There’s not much in the way of explanation given beyond that, though the source noted that during Curry’s last few days, the pair “were really icy to each other, and she refused to speak to him all week.”  Read more …

Ann Curry Says Goodbye

Not for nothing, but I think Ann Curry is getting the ass end of the donkey here. Sure, her celebrity interview style was a bit uncomfortable to watch, but she’s also an incredibly accomplished journalist with a lifetime’s worth of amazing international news coverage under her belt. This woman is one of our shining stars, if you ask me. But she was put in a job where she was basically set up to fail. And I mean, what has Matt Lauer done for me lately? Ann, I love you, and I’m proud of you, and you didn’t need to be stuck on that stupid couch to do good work. Here’s hoping this frees her up to do more great, hard-hitting reporting from here and abroad.

Kathie Lee Talks Mugly The Dog

This morning, we met Mugly the Chinese Crested, the pooch who won the World’s Ugliest Dog contest for the second time in his ugly life. And somehow, some way, Kathie Lee Gifford managed to make a conversation about Mugly  into a conversation about Kathie Lee, specifically how one day she expects “things” to grow out of her face. Yum.

Alec Baldwin Drops His Drawers

Two things make Kathie Lee Gifford very upset: cannibalism and everyone dropping their bras and pants. I was not aware that bra-dropping is sweeping the nation, even during the heatwave, but I’ll grant KLG that Alec Baldwin dropping his drawers on “Letterman” last night was weird. Really weird. Yeah, it changed the subject from Smacking The Paparazzi-gate. But come on. It was hairy old man legs TMI.
