Wow, who would have thought hygiene and race had some weird correlation? Naya Rivera, that’s who.
The 28-year-old Glee star guest hosted The View this morning where the singer shared her wealth of well-researched (yeah, right) knowledge on personal hygiene and race relations:
After moderator Nicolle Wallace defended the fact that she showers three times a day (pre- and post-show, plus once before bed), the Fox beauty chimed in with a headline-making hypothesis.
“I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnic,” Rivera said as Wallace couldn’t help but burst out into a fit of giggles. “I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.”
fter her comments, Rosie O’Donnell proceeded to call upon a stunned African-American woman in the audience, who insisted she is a “frequent showerer” before Rivera defended her remarks.
“My mom is half black, half Puerto Rican. She showers every day, so I can say this. But I’m now married to a white man,” she said, referring to husband Ryan Dorsey, whom she secretly wed in July 2014. “And he showers a lot, like two, three times a day.
“I’m like, ‘What are you doing?'” she added with a laugh, mocking her hubby’s frequent habit.
During the silly debate, Rivera also revealed how often she showers and insisted that her cleanliness is spot-on.
“So the study says, a dermatologist says you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days, so I’m right on the mark,” the newlywed star explained.

Okay, I hate to say that I AGREE with some outspoken barely-celebrity about cleaning one’s self, but I DO agree with Naya. That being said, not sure she had to make it about RACE, per se. How do you feel about her awkward comments?
