Dr. Gwen Korovin has been IDed as the throat specialist who was in the room when Joan Rivers was undergoing her endoscopy. A report says Korovin took a selfie with Joan in the background during the procedure, and began a biopsy that led to Rivers vocal cords seizing, causing cardiac arrest. Rivers died a week later.
TMZ—so hated, yet so useful, no?—also brings to light photos that seem to contradict the story of Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts, who claims she was detained by police based on her race after making out with her boyfriend in his car. Photos seem to back up reports that she was having sex with him in the front seat of his car with the door wide open. The pictures show they were much heavier into their sesh than her story let on, though they do not definitively show the act.
But come on, if you're doing this and are surprised the cops would ask for your ID, you're on drugs or extremely entitled. Bringing race into it diminishes the very real problem that too many black people have with being targeted by cops for no good reason other than suspicion of being black. She plays right into the doubters who think race is a non-issue in this country, and who routinely say black people are the ones hung up on it.
