Like little stars.
Comedian, yenta and humanoid space being Joan Rivers was whisked off the set of British chat show “Loose Women” Tuesday for responding colorfully to a line of questioning about her experiences interviewing celebrities on the red carpet. Rivers said she enjoyed talking to the stars if they are nice, but like most people, she dislikes conversing with those who are insufferably rude. The controversy arose when she called out mirth-mobile Russell Crowe as “a piece of fucking shit.”
The other ladies on the panel howled with laughter as Rivers expressed her surprise that the program had no delay and thus her very candid observation would be broadcast in its entirety, so that the pensioners and invalids watching at home could hear it, in between slurps of their Bovril and Lucozade! Blimey! (Take that, Jane Fonda!)
I thought the Brits were slightly more enlightened about this stuff — and I assumed, as Rivers did, that they brought her on for a reason and she delivered — but apparently not, as Rivers was immediately escorted out of the studio and presenter Jackie Brambles was forced to make an on-air apology. But there are no hard feelings. In a statement issued later, Rivers said: “Yes, I swore, and I’m so fucking sorry.”
Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
