Joan Rivers Gives Jay Leno the Finger After Appearing on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”
The “Fashion Police” star welcomed Fallon to the new gig and afterwards gave a not-so-friendly gesture to former host Jay Leno for carrying on the Carson embargo.
Rivers told the paparazzi at LAX, “The f***ing curse is gone. [Rivers flips the bird] To Jay! Well, Jay. Twenty-three years. I’m still here and you’re going to be selling cars.”
Joan added, “It was great. I was back and it was so much fun. I think Jimmy is so perfect for it and he’s happy to do it. It’s a pleasure. He’s a wonderful worker.”
Additionally, Rivers told Variety she’s relieved the banishment is over- “It’s about time! I’ve been sitting in a taxi outside NBC with the meter running since 1987.”
