Adam Lambert Wins a Dream Date With Joan Rivers on 'Fashion Police'
E!’s Fashion Police celebrated Joan Rivers’ birthday week (the icon turned 80 Saturday) with a touch of glam, as the birthday girl scored the ultimate present: a dream date with Adam Lambert.
Lambert, who joined the comedienne as part of the show’s “Joan Week,” competed with comedian Gilbert Gottfried and basketball player Darius Morris for a special edition of “Joan’s Mating Game.” The host had to choose between the three gentlemen, despite her warning that she was “old and dry.”
Each “contestant” was asked the same question: Where would they take Rivers on a “dream date”? And each man put his best foot forward.
Gottfried promised he would take the host to a “diner where we can watch the pies roll around.”
“Money is no object since I won’t be bringing any,” he asserted.
Morris took a more romantic approach. The L.A. Lakers stud promised a trip on a yacht, with “champagne and chocolate covered strawberries” to round out the evening.
Lambert, however, pulled out the big guns: a shopping spree at Barneys, with the “entire store to ourselves.”
“We would be sipping champagne, caviar; we would shop the day away,” said the American Idol alum, sporting a stylish mustache for the occasion. “I would take you to get a facial, dermabrasion, a peel, makeup done, hair set -- buy you anything you want.”
And if that weren’t enough, the American Idol alum threw in a “sneak peek of a never before seen Broadway show,” where he would then tuck Rivers in, and they would “fall asleep watching Fashion Police.”
The other two bachelors didn’t stand a chance.
“We are going to have so much fun on our date,” said Lambert, a self-professed “Joan Ranger.”
Rivers also received birthday greetings from Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Johnny Weir, Heidi Klum and Fergie, who surprised the host by smashing a birthday cake in her face.
