On a recent trip to the UK, comedian Joan Rivers had an incident with the border patrol where they thought she and her daughter Melissa might be illegal immigrants. The story goes that Joan and Melissa were visiting a friend at an estate in Kent. While they were there and filming their show ‘Joan Knows Best,’ they went out on a fishing boat where UK Border Patrol stepped in. 

UK Border Agency decided they looked suspicious and descended upon the group to ask questions. Members of Joan’s entourage said she was “hilarious the whole time,” but the border guards were strictly business. A spokesperson for the agency later said, “After a short discussion, Border Force officers were satisfied the passengers and crew did not present a risk to the border.”

After it was over, Joan seemed disappointed, saying:

“Even though we were innocent, I am so sorry they didn’t arrest us. I love Englishmen and they were very cute.”


She's a pretty funny gal, we'd hate to see her deported!
