Remember Joan Rivers, ya’ll? At one point she was a beloved comedienne, former talk show host and Johnny Carson arch nemesis. But somewhere along the way Rivers devolved from comedy legend to Queen of the Mean Girls. Rivers is now best known for her bullying antics on the E! network’s Fashion Police along with serial fat-shamer Kelly Osbourne and a bunch of other people who are allegedly famous. Over the years Joan has smack talked a ton of famous moms, often with no compassion for what pregnancy child birth can do to a woman’s physical and mental state. Sometimes she doesn’t even wait until the person gives birth to bully them for weight gain (not that it’s okay after child birth or ever). Below are just a few of the famous moms bullied by the fashion police bully patrol. Tell me, why do people watch this garbage again?
8. Kim Kardashian & North West
Listen, I know this is going to come as a shock to you all, but last year Kim Kardashian had a baby. I know, I know, this is brand new information for most of you! North West, Kim’s baby (with now-husband Kanye West) has been the subject of Joan’s poison tongue a couple of times, most notably when Radar Online reported that she said:
“That baby is ugly. I’ve never seen a six-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing.”
Adele has been a favorite target of the unrepentant Rivers since well before the star became a mom, but the abuse certainly seemed to increase once the singer had a baby in 2013. According to US Weekly:
“She was very scared because she was singing at the awards. She kept saying, ‘My throat, my throat — I don’t know if I can swallow,’” Rivers said on the talk show. “And I said, ‘Oh, yeah! You can swallow.”
6. Christina Aguilera
After giving birth in 2008, Aguilera gained some weight (as women are wont to do) and the attention of the Fashion Police Bully Brigage. In 2012 Rivers said the following about the singer on The Jimmy Fallon show:
“Christina Aguilera, we mentioned that she was fat — I think the joke was, ‘Cows tip her,’” Joan joked. “So, I’m at Spago’s with Melissa, we’re eating dinner and fatso is along the way, she comes lumbering over to my table with that no-neck look, she comes over and says, ‘You gonna finish that?’”
Fatson? Where does Rivers get her jokes, my elementary school gym class circa 1993?
5. Elsa Pataky
Rivers oh-so-tactfully poked fun at Pataky’s baby weight while the star was still pregnant earlier this year. Pataky was walking the red carpet during an event and Rivers had some choice words about her:
“I’m sorry, look at her tummy! She is HUGE. I know why she’s huge, I saw her sonogram,” and making things worse, jerky co-host and fashion stylist George Kotsiopoulos chimed in, “That doesn’t look like a baby bump—looks like a beer belly!”
