Be careful what you say about Kristen Stewart. Sure, she may have been caught cheating on her boyfriend, but she is no trampire! And if you say so, you risk a lawsuit, at least if you're Joan Rivers. Joan reportedly wrote in her new book, Diary of a Mad Diva:
Many stars only do one thing well. Of course, the best one-trick-pony is Kristen Stewart, who got a whole career by being able to juggle a director's balls.
Oooo, Joan. NOT. NICE.
Now somehow despite the fact that Joan's book isn't out until next month, KStew managed to see said insult. Or someone in her camp did. Because Joan says that Kristen's lawyer contacted her and threatened to sue for defamation. Sheesh. Lighten up, Krissy!
Seriously, that is pretty rude of Joan to say. Plus, it makes no sense. Kristen shot to fame in Twilight, which had a female director. And while Catherine Hardwicke is ballsy, I very much doubt she has balls, or even if she does, which she doesn't, that Kristen juggled them.
But Joan is playing hard ball (get it?) and refusing to take out the passage. Joan says she's a comedian and it's all just for laughs, so who cares.
I agree that comedians should have some leeway when it comes to being insulting in the name of laughs -- but that wasn't even funny. Maybe KStew did get it on with her Snow White & The Huntsman director, but she sure didn't get the part because of that. She was way more famous than him.
Joan, I'm all for dirty jokes, but at least have them make sense.
What do you think about Joan's joke?
