Joan Rivers was in rare form Wednesday night when she was on QVC with host Rick Domeier, and had us and Rick laughing out loud with her jokes about Tiger Woods and his hookers.
Is started out innocently enough, with Rivers showing off what must be her 1,000th interpretation of her signature bee pin. This one was called the “Buzzing Brightly” bee pin, and Rivers cited bees as a good luck charm.
Then Domeier opened the door, as lawyers say in court. He said that many athletes have lucky charms or rituals they do for good luck, like hitting the plate three times with a bat when they’re up to hit.
“Tiger Woods always hits a hooker on the head,” Rivers said, pretending she was Woods by saying, “Where’s my lucky hooker? I want to rub her. You rub worry beads. I want to rub my hooker.”
The camera stayed off Domeier, but you could hear him hysterically laughing in the background, along with us. Here’s the video.
While her comments may not sit well with QVC management, Rivers certainly gives it her all to promote her QVC jewelry. On Wedesday morning she had worn one of her necklaces, a large three-strand beaded piece, on “The Regis and Kelly Show.”
“He said, ‘I want one for Joy (Philbin’s wife),” Rivers said, adding that Kelly Ripka had also requested one of the $70 necklaces, too.
Last night Rivers also showed photos of herself wearing the necklace at the Sundance Film Festival, and she has it on for “The Rachael Ray Show” that she taped this week, to air next week.
Last night Rivers was also selling a huge cocktail ring, at $49, that she wore when she was roasted on Comedy Central.
“The roasts are bawdy, and I knew it was going to be bawdy,” Rivers said of the X-rated event.
As for the jewelry, she said, “What a nice way to give someone the finger, by wearing this ring.”
