Joan Rivers may be unapologetically mean, but she’s also a mother. As such, she should know better than lobbing a low-blow at a baby. Unfortunately, even at 80 years old, she apparently doesn’t…
Sources report that during a stand-up performance at the Saban Theater in Los Angeles on Jan. 17, Joan sank her fangs into Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s baby daughter, North West.
Explaining she met North when Kim recently brought her into the Fashion Police studio, Joan told the comedy show audience, “That baby is ugly… I’ve never seen a six-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing.”*
What’s so ridiculous about Joan’s comment is that North’s a seriously gorgeous baby. Plus, North is defenseless against this kind of criticism. (Although it’s just a matter of time before Mom or Dad speak out.)
Then again, Joan’s sustained a long career with these kinds of off-the-wall comments. She’s also unafraid of targeting influential people — including her co-network stars. Take, for example, when North’s parents first got together and Joan remarked on Fashion Police of Kim, “You do know she thinks Kanye is the one, don’t you? Which is why she waited on the second night to f**k him.”
*Joan’s last comment is particularly funny, considering people were on the verge of rioting when they thought Kim may have shaped North’s eyebrows. It seems Joan didn’t get the memo that the general public is anti-waxing when it comes to North’s cute brows!
