Future “Punk’d” victims take note: Comic legend Joan Rivers has some solid advice for how to handle getting punked. Well, the fashion maven and iconic funny lady at least knows the right way to look if you should happen to get a practical joke pulled on you by a fellow celebrity while MTV cameras are rolling.
“I have no answer [about who I would punk]. … One of my first jobs ever was ‘Candid Camera,’ which was the original ‘Punk’d,’ so I go back to old punks,” she joked to MTV News on the New York set of 50 Cent’s Street King energy drink commercial , in which she makes a cameo.
“I don’t know, I don’t know the perfect way to punk somebody,” Rivers continued. “But I think everyone should go out in full hair and makeup in case you are punked. You don’t want to look ugly and punked. Ugly and punked is not good!”
The new season of “Punk’d” kicks off on Thursday (March 29) at 10 p.m. ET/PT, right before “Jersey Shore” prankster Pauly D’s spin-off “The Pauly D Project” premieres.
Nick Cannon, Lucy Hale, Mac Miller, Heather Morris, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Kellan Lutz, Bam Margera, Hayden Panettiere, “Punk’d” alumnus Dax Shepard and Tyler, the Creator have all been tapped as celebrity hosts of the show, which will feature a different host every week. Everyone from Taylor Swift to the Wanted, Liam Hemsworth and Demi Lovato will fall victim to practical jokes pulled by the A-listers.
And for viewers wondering how the pranks gets pulled, this season for the first time, fans will get an inside look behind the scenes to see how they all went down.
