Re-Watching Joan Rivers' Last Show With Bianca Del Rio

Re-Watching Joan Rivers' Last Show With Bianca Del Rio


One of the last episodes for her web series, In Bed With Joan, featured one of this generation's best insult comedians.

RuPaul's Drag Race Season 6 winner Bianca Del Rio got in bed with Joan Rivers for a raucous 17 minutes of no-holds-barred comedy where no topic was off limits this summer for the web series, In Bed With Joan Rivers. It became available after the the controversy of calling Michelle Obama a "tranny," and may have been overlooked by some outlets. In it, however, Del Rio explains why the gay community loved Rivers: "I know you hate ass kissing, which is why I'm going to keep it to a minimum but I remember when I was younger and I saw your daytime talk show. You were one of the only people on TV who was showcasing drag talent as talent."

It seems fitting to re-watch the August video short in which Del Rio and Rivers also shared stories about how they're both often attacked by people who were offended by their humor.

Del Rio: When they come after me and say you're being a little too cunty or disrespectful, I say, "You're at a bar at 1 a.m. watching a fucking man in a wig. You need to check yourself before you check me."

Rivers: Why do you even listen to these idiots?

Del Rio: I don't listen but now with social media, it's there.

Rivers: I don't. If it's negative, you're wasting your time. The minute it says, "Dear Cunt," I know it's either someone saying somehing negative or it's Melissa (Rivers' daughter.)

After watching these two trade rapid-fire insults directed at celebrities and themselves, it is obvious that Rivers respects Del Rio as a worthy predecessor.

Watch the hilarious interview below...or don't if you're easily offended.
