Joan Rivers says Gwyneth Paltrow confronted her over 'Fashion Police'

Joan Rivers can always be relied on to speak her mind on talk shows; it's one of her many charms. And her appearance on Bravo's "Watch What Happens Live" on Wednesday did not disappoint. 

Asked by a viewer to recall the "worst backlash she ever received" for her snarky E! show "Fashion Police," the 80-year-old comedian didn't miss a beat in naming names.

"The worst criticism was, ugh, Gwyneth Paltrow," Rivers said, and made a face.

"She came in and yelled at us, but she stood up," Rivers said. "She couldn't sit down because she's got a stick up her rear end."

Host Andy Cohen had to cover his face to disguise his reaction to Rivers' blunt comments.

"The 'world's most beautiful woman' voted on by Helen Keller and Stevie Wonder," Rivers continued.

Even that made fellow guest Tracy Morgan go "Oohhhhh."

"You love a Helen Keller joke, don't you?" Cohen said.

    A look at the new Emmy rules and what they might change

    Last year's Emmy season started off confusing ("Orange Is the New Black" is a comedy?

And while television...

    "Homeland's" Peter Quinn is not to be trifled with: He's a crack shot and a tireless investigator for the CIA, though not without flaws (he's just begun an inadvisable relationship with Claire Danes' volatile Carrie Mathison, and he once stabbed a suspect through the hand). Rupert Friend, who plays...
