*Naya Rivera made news yesterday while guest-hosting “The View.”
The “Glee” star was in a conversation with the co-hosts, including Rosie O’Donnell and Nicolle Wallace, when this nugget of information fell out of the actress’ mouth: “I have to say I have a theory about showering, [which] is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics. I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.”
One of her stunned costars chimed in: “I would like to dispute that!” while O’Donnell pointed to an audience member.
“Look, there is an African-American woman right there in a yellow shirt that is about to have a heart attack,” she remarked.
Rivera, attempting to repair the situation, noted that her mother is half-black, half-Puerto Rican. “She showers every day, so I can say this,” the actress said directly to the guest. “But I can say that I am now married to a white man [Ryan Dorsey], and he showers a lot. Like, a lot — two, three times a day. I’m like, ‘What are you doing?'”
Rivera then got scientific in trying to prove her point. “A study says… a dermatologist says you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days, so I’m right on the mark.”
Not according to Twitter, though.
