Joan Rivers Says Glee Turns Her Stomach

Categories: Joan Rivers

The show fills her with the opposite emotion, in fact.

Writes Joan in her new book:

"You know that cute Asian boy who plays a freshman?

"In real life he's a thirty-year-old man and he's upside down on a mortgage in Burbank.

"The only way Lea Michele is in high school is if she's part of some bizarre religious cult and she's come back to school with bombs strapped to her boobs.

"The only true character on Glee is the fat girl because in real life she is a fat girl."

And she's definitely really black too.

Anyway, the discrepancies aren't the only things that bother Joan about the show.

"On Glee," she writes, "all the homo kids are smiling and giggly and they spend every day singing in the halls.

"When I went to high school, the homos spent most of their days hiding in their lockers, crying!"

Well, when I went to school, they hid in closets way bigger than any lockers could ever be.

But they were definitely singing!


PS: This will be my last blog promoting the book because I don't want to give too much away. Buy the fucker already!

Joan is funny but why is she bashing on the actors. She should bash on the creators and writers.

 I never really watched it either...and she's absolutely right about everything.  The show is canned hack sh&t to the nth degree.  UN*%#$@WATCHABLE!

Yeah, that pretty much firms up that she's never watched the show. Kurt cries all the time, Karofsky attempted suicide and Santana is a bitch because she was in the closet. Blaine's a bubbly ball of fluff, regardless of sexuality.

Gotta go with Joan on  this one. I watched about 2 minutes of glee before my nerves started to snap. I turned that shit off immediately and was deeply surprised by the show's success!

I have more of a problem with the way the bastardize and cheapen music.

"On Glee," she writes, "all the homo kids are smiling and giggly and they spend every day singing in the halls. You probably missed the dead threat Kurt received, the slushies that all Glee guys got thrown in face...and the attemptive suicide of Dave (I suppose Joan you don't know who is him).

Um is that line suppose to be a joke about "she's part of some bizarre religious cult and she's come back to school with bombs strapped to her boobs"....that makes know sense at all and on top of it, it is not funny.   I don't mind comics being insulting but at least get your facts straight and more importantly actually be funny.

Hey!
Hey!

what asian who plays a freshman? jeez. she only got about one thing right and you don't need to watch glee in order to know lea michele is on it. this sounds like PR for her. and it gets better does not tell kids to come out before they're ready to. it's about telling you it's ok and that it will get better and they talk about their situations so you know that even someone who's handsome or famous has somehow dealt with something you're going through. it's comfort.
