Joan Rivers kicked off British chat show

Rivers, 75, was making a guest appearance on “Loose Women” when the Hollywood interviewer was asked if she likes meeting celebrities on the red carpet. She responded that she likes “nice” celebrities, but that Crowe is not one of those.

She then said “get ready to bleep this,” and let loose with two expletives in reference to the Oscar-winning movie star whose films include “Gladiator” and “American Gangster.” The comedienne, who is famous for the catch phrase “can we talk?”, was asked to leave the chat show at the commercial break.joan1.jpg

But it’s not like Joan was overly contrite. In a statement released through her spokeswoman, Rivers joked about the incident. “In England you can’t swear on TV before 9 p.m.,” Rivers said. “Like it’s my fault — I’m still on New York time.”
