If you follow entertainment media, then I’m sure you have heard about the Ray J and Joan Rivers spoof, of Ray J and Kim Kardashian’s sex tape. The tape went viral on the internet in February 2007. Since then, Kim has desperately tried to move on from the incident. Unfortunately, the media will not let it go. While many of us found the spoof hilarious, some people did not. Including Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian. Khloe was highly upset over the video and decided she will not participate as a co-host on E! show “Fashion Police”. In Khloe’s defense, I think many of us can agree we would not want to be in the company of anyone who insults one of our family members, regardless if it is based on true events.
Since Khloe has severed her ties with the program, the “Fashion Police” show executives are now rushing to find a new co-host and re-do the entire the entire script. Khloe was set to shoot her first segment on the show, today, but stated she was disgusted with Rivers actions and refused to do so.
In the video spoof, Ray J and Rivers are shown getting cozy under the blanket, while he told her “You’re the best. You’re twice the woman Kim was”. Rivers, comically replied “No, she was 22 at the time, I’m three times the woman. Be gentle. I don’t want to break a hip”. Ray J stated “I like older women because they know what they want”. He turns to the camera and says “They know when they want it and after they get it they tell you to get out”.
Rivers added “We know what we want and it’s usually dinner at 4.30”. The video ended with Ray J stating “I’m good with that because when I take you to dinner, after dinner, it’s what, like 6.30. We hit the bed by 7.30pm. You sleep by 9, I’m in the club by 12. We’ve got a perfect relationship”. In a past interview Kim had with Oprah Winfrey, regarding the sex tape, she stated “The tape was pretty much how I was introduced to the world. It was a negative way, so I feel like I had to work ten times harder to get people to see the real me. I have to live with the choices I have made. I am just such a calm, different person, and my life isn’t all about me”.
The “Fashion Police” show co-host, Scarlett Johannson, responded to Khloe’s hasty decision making. She stated “This is unprofessional. Joan is fine. Thank you for the publicity for Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best. What is she going to do? She wrote new jokes. Joan doesn’t give a s**t about the Kardashians”.
As expected, Rivers does not regret making the video. She stated in a interview with the Huffington Post, that Kim should feel flattered, not insulted.
