Oh, Naya Rivera. If she was after the crown for the craziest bitch in Hollywood, she’s got it (I sorta mean that as a compliment, so no one lose your mind about the colloquial use of the word “bitch”) and is holding strong to it in 2015. What’s she on about this time? Well, she thinks white people shower too much and that “ethnics” know that daily bathing isn’t really necessary. Uh… okay!
Let’s let US Weekly paraphrase what happened when Naya was asked to guest host on The View this week (WHOSE IDEA WAS THAT???):
The Glee actress, 28, presented her opinion to Rosie O’Donnell, Nicolle Wallace, and the other ladies seated at the roundtable. “I have to say I have a theory about showering, [which] is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics,” Rivera remarked as Wallace started laughing. “I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.”
One of her stunned co-stars chimed in: “I would like to dispute that!” while O’Donnell pointed to an audience member.
“Look, there is an African-American woman right there in a yellow shirt that is about to have a heart attack,” she remarked.
Rivera, attempting to repair the situation, noted that her mother is half-black, half-Puerto Rican. “She showers every day, so I can say this,” the actress said directly to the guest. “But I can say that I am now married to a white man [Ryan Dorsey], and he showers a lot. Like, a lot — two, three times a day. I’m like, ‘What are you doing?'”
Rivera then got scientific in trying to prove her point. “A study says… a dermatologist says you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days, so I’m right on the mark.”
I mean, what is this conversation? I don’t even get why this came up, but whatever. Frankly, I don’t shower every single day. Sometimes I take long baths a few days in a row to relax and I do shower at least every 2-3 days, but I don’t think I’ve ever showered more than once a day unless it was the middle of summer and my A/C was broken.
Come on then, EB, ‘fess up!
