Joan Rivers hosted a book party at the 21 Club yesterday for Double Life: A Love Story from Broadway to Hollywood, by Alan Shayne and Norman Sunshine, which chronicles the 50-year relationship of a gay male couple. On that note, does Joan really think gay men dress better than straight ones? "Of course. Gay men have better bodies, on the whole. That’s number one, and number two: They care more about what they look like. Very seldom will you find a gay schlep. Am I right? Very few homeless." She continued, "This is why there are no gay protestors in Zuccotti Park. Because there’s no place to change, and no closets." So how does she feel about Occupy Wall Street, in general? "I think Occupy Wall Street was terrific the first week, and it has now turned into a very happy druggy party. I suggest they all get jobs and go back to work," she responded. "What was an amazing and wonderful thing, I now find just ridiculous. Everyone’s on drugs and everybody’s singing, and they now have a DVD out, and now they want to do a reality show." Any fashion advice for the protesters? "Wash, rinse, and repeat."
