After Joan Rivers' most recent bout of plastic surgery, her daughter Melissa rediscovered what a pain playing nursemaid to can be on "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best" (Tue., 9 p.m. EST on WE). She found herself chasing her mother all around the house, picking her up off of the bathroom floor, and having to watch her virtually 24/7.
Joan was trying to make phone calls and feed the dog Jell-O. She wouldn't keep the ice packs where they belonged, insisting instead that she was keeping it at her crotch. It was no surprise that she started joking about her vagina to anyone who saw the pair on "The View," where they quickly derailed the conversation into porn and jokes about lady-parts.
Joan talked with HuffPost Gay Voices about the new season of "Joan & Melissa," and about comments she made that some in the gay community considered to be transphobic. The outrage stemmed from Joan assuring Melissa she wasn't going in for "a Chaz Bono" with her latest procedure.
Joan had some choice words in her defense, but Melissa translated her intent in a more eloquent way. "When the gay community starts becoming overly sensitive and loses its sense of humor, we're all in deep s**t," she said. "They're the funniest people alive."
She what Joan does next as "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best" continues every Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST on WE.
