They Said What??? Joan Rivers, Spike Lee, & Fidel Castro!

People are talking so much this week, I can’t wait until Monday to share my “They Said What??? quotes with you.  Don’t worry (and I know you aren’t fretting), I’ll have new ones next Monday. 🙂

JOAN RIVERS — Potty Mouth!

Here’s what 78-year-old Joan Rivers told Howard Stern after Chelsea Handler spouted off about Rivers– and it’s naughty, so be warned:  “she’s fine, she’s ordinary, she’s not a genius, she’s an ordinary girl that f*cked someone high up in the industry and they gave her a break and she’s doing o.k. And, that’s not all, whatever she is, she’s a drunk.  She has her own show, I don’t wish her good luck, I don’t wish her bad luck.  I don’t care, I don’t think she’s particularly funny, but don’t you come after me, you whore!!”

SPIKE LEE  — Rants at Sundance

African-American Director Spike Lee about why he didn’t ask for studio money for his latest film, “Red Hook Summer”:  “I didn’t want to hear no motherf—er notes from the studio telling me about what a young 13-year-old boy and girl would do in Red Hook.  They know nothing about black people.  Nothing!”

And he wasn’t done!  Lee also looked into the audience and said, “Is Brooklyn in the house? We doubled the black population of Utah, maybe tripled it, up in this room!”


Rapper A$AP Rocky to “Complex” magazine about gay fashion designer Jeremy Scott, who’s worked with Lady Gaga and Katy Perry:  “I’m not homosexual. That’s not where I’m at with my life. But I can still be greatly inspired by a homosexual. It has nothing to do with their sexuality. If I start discriminating against people, that will stop me as a person. That’s ignorant. What the f*ck does that have to do with anything? It’s not like I want to date this motherf—-r—I’m inspired by this dude.“

In the same interview, Scott adds, “I don’t know why people care about what other people do. When this becomes an issue in politics, that’s the thing that boggles my mind. I heard on CNN that Republicans won’t get behind Mitt Romney because of abortion and gay marriage. Why do you care?”


A mother to the Republican Presidential Wannabe:  “I’m a proud mother of a gay son graduating from Georgetown law in May, I want to know why he can’t have the same rights as you have?”   Santorum replied, “Every American child has the right, and the government should support the right, to have and know their mother and father and be raised by their mother and father.”


In Thursday night’s Florida debate to Newt Gingrich.  Womanizer Gingrich didn’t want to talk about comments he made to the press earlier in the week:  “Wouldn’t it be nice if people didn’t make accusations somewhere else that they weren’t willing to defend here?”

And, Romney wasn’t done with the other front-runner in the Florida primary:  “Mr. Speaker, you’ve indicated that somehow I don’t earn that money.  I have earned the money that I have. I didn’t inherit it. I take risks. I make investments. Those investments lead to jobs being created in America. I’m proud of being successful. . . . What you’ve accomplished in your life shouldn’t be seen as a detriment, it should be seen as an asset to help America.”


Rep. Michele Bachmann announced she is running for a fourth term in Congress in Minnesota. “I’m looking forward to coming back and bringing a strong, powerful voice to Washington, D.C.”


Former Cuban President and Prime Minister Fidel Castro about the Republican candidates for U.S President:  “The selection of a Republican candidate for the presidency of this globalized and expansive empire is – and I mean this seriously – the greatest competition of idiocy and ignorance that has ever been.”

Peace ☮,

    Always a good read. My dad said he heard Newt speaking to employees of NASA saying he wants to keep the space program going & populate the moon. I said “I bet he does…with every woman he can get!”
