The one and only Joan Rivers, who is the subject of my next Mr. Television column, was front and center at the TV Land session hyping her upcoming nonscripted series, How’d You Get So Rich?, which debuts on Wednesday, Aug. 5 at 10 p.m.
Here are the best of the mountain of zingers from Ms. Rivers:
“I wish this was a room full of plastic surgeons, because you have not seen my arms.”
“I’m still in this business at age 197, and am still relevant.”
“I had a grandmother that came to this country with 13 children and no husband. Slut!”
“We produced six episodes of How’d We Get So Rich? But 127 have been ordered.”
“Annie Douche…I don’t like her. I would not have liked her is she played f***ing bingo!”
“I think it is brilliant NBC is putting Jay Leno at 10 p.m. Now, people can get bored and go to bed earlier. Nice for the Midwest…the crops will get greener.”
