Joan Rivers Attacks Newt Gingrich's Weight

Joan Rivers has never been shy about telling celebrities exactly what she thinks of them. But now, Joan has her eye on a gentleman attempting to lock down the Republican presidential nomination -- Newt Gingrich.

"Newt can never become president," Joan tells me. "Just the thought of him naked, gross!"

This isn't the first time Joan Rivers has spoken out about politicians. Just over a year ago, she went after Sarah Palin, saying critics were "right' to blame her for the tragedy in Tucson, following the shooting of Gabby Giffords. Joan even believes that the comment resulted in her getting banned from Fox News, an accusation that the network has since denied.

"I don't care about what Newt thinks -- what is he going to do to me," Joan asks. "He can go f--- himself. I have the perfect life; I have four days a week with Melissa [Rivers] in L.A. where we do our show, 'Melissa and Joan: Joan Knows Best' on WETV, plus 'The Fashion Police' on E!, then three days back in New York. My two hip replacements are working, you know old people. The diapers are fabulous and I am over the bulimia!"

Naughty But Nice airs Thursdays at 8:00pm on HDNet.
