Naya Rivera, the undisputed Queen of Saying and Doing Bizarre Shit to Get Press, said in an interview today that showering every day is "for white people."

Rivera was a guest co-host on The View today, when she dropped this pearl of her own personal observational wisdom. Via E Online:

After moderator Nicolle Wallace defended the fact that she showers three times a day (pre- and post-show, plus once before bed), the Fox beauty chimed in with a headline-making hypothesis.

"I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnic," Rivera said as Wallace couldn't help but burst out into a fit of giggles. " I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing."

The audience and other show co-hosts were visibly stunned by the statement and people jumped in to correct her. But Rivera stuck to her guns. "My mom is half black, half Puerto Rican. She showers every day, so I can say this," Rivera said. "But I'm now married to a white man [husband Ryan Dorsey] "And he showers a lot, like two, three times a day.I'm like, 'What are you doing?'"

Meanwhile, everyone on Twitter went "HUH?'

Rivera offered a, uh, response to the backlash over her remarks.
