The fact that Jackie Collins and Joan Rivers were on a BBC radio show together isn't the best part of this story. The best part of this story is that Darius Howe was also a guest on this show. Of course you don't know who Darius Howe is, and it doesn't really matter. What matters is that he and Rivers got into an on-air shouting match regarding racism and culminating in Rivers calling Howe (a Trinidadian filmmaker, writer and activist—just so you have some context. It still doesn't matter.) a "son of a bitch" because she thought he called her a racist. After Howe said to Rivers that he didn't think she was racist, she said, "Thank you. Please continue about your stupid film."
But the best best part of all this utter hilarity? You can hear it all go down as it happened. BRAVO for the technology!
The fight starts 23 minutes into the broadcast. And it is a GOOD TIME.
