Naya Rivera On Showering Daily — Her Racist Comment On ‘The View’
When Nicole revealed that she sometimes showers three times a day sometimes, the outspoken Glee actress took to sharing her own hygiene opinions.
“I have to say I have a theory about showering, [which] is that I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnics,” Naya said, while Nicole immediately started cracking up. “I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing.”
Yikes! Rosie, clearly shocked, pointed to another stunned audience member, and Naya quickly attempted to defend herself by saying that her mom is half black, half Puerto Rican.
“She showers every day, so I can say this. 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?'”
To further argue her case, she pointed to a recent study conducted by scientists about how often people really need to shower. According to the study, dermatologists say you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days.
“So I’m right on the mark,” Naya says.
