One of the highlights of my years writing on Fashion Police was the day that Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte was a guest. Joan Rivers wanted to do something fun with him and the day before taping, the team was brainstorming ideas but nothing was clicking. I said, "What if you go jump in the E! fountain with him?" When I said it, I thought there were a million reasons why it wouldn't work but Joan's eyes lit up and the producer starting making calls to arrange it with the building. The next morning, there Joan and Ryan were, in the fountain together, making jokes about peeing. I remember driving home and being positively high from it. A great lesson in thinking outside the box...and the studio.
