[efoods]Comic Joan Rivers was barred from getting a flight – because airline officials deemed her passport “suspicious”.
The acid-tongued star was trying to fly from Costa Rica to Newark airport in New Jersey. But as she tried to board, the 76-year-old was pulled to one side after a Continental Airlines security agent checked her details.
Her passport reads: “Joan Rosenberg AKA Joan Rivers.” Rosenberg was her late husband’s last name.
The fashion-loving Rivers said afterwards: “If I were going to make up an alias, I wouldn’t pick Rosenberg. I’d pick Jolie or Pitt.
“Do terrorists wear Manolo Blahniks? I can tell you Donna Karan does not make anything that hides a bomb.”
