Joan Rivers Gets Stoned

The thing about Joan & Melissa is that it's obviously a scripted "reality" show, but since Joan Rivers is doing the writing, it's actually really funny. So on last night's episode when Joan smoked weed in a car parked in a cul-de-sac, it didn't really matter if the whole thing was most likely staged (and that Melissa's acting skills are horrendous) — it still worked. The premise was that Joan was really stressed out from dealing with the parents of Melissa's boyfriend, who were visiting from out of town. So she went and got a medical marijuana prescription to deal with anxiety. She subsequently went bong-shopping and visited a head shop where she purchased a strain of pot called "Louis XIII." She and a friend smoked weed out of pipe with a pig on it; hilarity (and the munchies) ensued. By the end of the episode, she jumped into a hot tub with her clothes on and drank water out of her shoe. We'll have what she's having.
