"Every year someone comes out of this looking like a donkey!"
--Kevin Costner (Draft Day)
Today was DANCING WITH THE STARS DRAFT DAY on the morning show. We each got to pick 3 dancers. The first one to have all 3 of their dancers eliminated is the big loser and will feel the wrath of the other 2.
Who will be this year's donkey?
Freddie: Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air")
Lissa: Bethany Mota (YouTube Beauty Guru)
Rock: Antonio Sabato Jr. ("General Hospital" hearthrob)
Freddie: Tommy Chong (Cheech & Chong, "Up In Smoke")
Lissa: Lolo Jones (Olympic Track & Field Star)
Rock: Janel Parrish (Mona on "Pretty Little Liars")
Freddie: Lea Thompson (Lorraine McFly in "Back to the Future")
Lissa: Sadie Robertson (Willie Robertson's 17 yr old daughter on "Duck Dynasty")
Rock: (Jonathan Bennett (Aaron Samuels from "Mean Girls")
Those are the picks. How do you think it will all shake out? Which one of us will be this season's BIG LOSER?
Another comedy voice was silenced today. But now, the more I think of it, Joan Rivers roared so loud, her words will live on forever. She was constantly pushing the envelope and was never afraid to say what was on her mind. Yeah, sometimes she pushed too hard. But that's what made Joan, Joan.
And without Joan Rivers, there would be no Roseanne...no Kathy Griffin...no Chelsea Handler...no Sarah Silverman...or any of the other great female comics that followed in her footsteps and tried roaring just as loud.
Here's a few of my fave lines that Joan leaves with us.
We're still laughing.
1--Why should a woman cook? So her husband can say 'My wife makes a delicious cake' to some hooker?
2--My best birth control now is just to leave the lights on.
3--Half of all marriages end in divorce—and then there are the really unhappy ones.
4--I wish I had a twin so I could know what I look like without plastic surgery.
5--I don't exercise. If God had wanted me to bend over he would have put diamonds on the floor.
6--I succeeded by saying what everyone else is thinking.
7--Looking fifty is great—if you're sixty.
8--The first time I see a jogger smiling, I'll consider it.
9--I must admit I am nervous about getting Alzheimer's. Once it hits, I might tell my best joke and never know it.
10--I've learned to have absolutely no regrets about any jokes I've ever done.
