During an appearance on ABC's The
View, comedian Joan Rivers poked fun at John Travolta and
discussed kissing a woman.
The kiss happened during the
third-season premiere of cabler WE's Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows
On the reality
show, at the prompting of her daughter, Rivers, 79, agreed to attend
a dinner party thrown by Lily Tomlin, where she met Shirl. The women
kissed on their second date.
lesbianism has been around for a long time – Susan B. Anthony, the
'b' stood for bush, you know. The only difference is now I have
found that I am douching in Gatorade. But otherwise, I don't feel
any different,” Rivers said.
When asked how she
feels about her mother kissing another woman, Melissa Rivers
answered: “I have no problem with this. But I already have a lot
to explain to my son about grandma's eccentricities.”
Mother and daughter
live together on the reality program, which led Joan Rivers to quip:
“You know, with two women in the house, there's a lot of screaming
and yelling. I mean, just ask Kelly Preston and John Travolta.”
