“The View” has always been the place for controversial topics, and yesterday that was certainly the case when “Glee” actress Naya Rivera sat down with the cast for an interesting conversation about showering and opened up about her own surprising personal hygiene tendencies.
During the show, the panel of hosts discussed co-host Nicole Wallace’s tendency to shower three times a day and Rivera chimed in and explained that she thinks showering daily is a “white people thing.”
“I have to say I have a theory about showering, [which] is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics,” Rivera remarked as Wallace started laughing. “I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.”
Not surprisingly, both Rivera’s co-hosts and some audience members disagreed with her statement and Rivera further explained why she feels the way she does about showering.
“She showers every day, so I can say this,” Rivera said to the audience. “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 supported her point by referencing a scientific study about the effects of taking too many showers.
“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,” she said.
Of course viewers sounded off on Twitter and blasted the star for her comments. Check out how Rivera responded to the controversy after the cut.
