Joan Rivers mistaken for illegal immigrant

Rivers was in England filming a segment on her TV show when authorities approached her and her crew.

 

U.S. comedienne JOAN RIVERS was quizzed by British officials when she was mistaken for an immigrant illegally entering the U.K.

Four border patrol officers descended on the funnywoman as she disembarked from a fishing boat on the Swale Estuary near Kent, England after they received a tip-off regarding a suspicious group of people.

Rivers, her daughter Melissa, and her TV crew were questioned for several minutes at the scene before officials recognised Rivers.

The funnywoman, who was filming a segment for her new TV show Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best!, insists the incident was amusing and admits she thought her questioners were good-looking.

She says, "Even though we were innocent I am so sorry they didn't arrest us. I love Englishmen and they were very cute!"
