Louis C.K. Takes Advice from Joan Rivers, Then Makes His Move on 'Louie' (VIDEO)

How did Louis C.K. celebrate his four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on 'Louie' (Thu., 10:30PM ET on FX)? In a way, you could say he celebrated by sleeping with Joan Rivers.

It happened in the back half of the episode, after Louis was frustrated with the audience during one of his casino sets. After turning down a steady paycheck and asking to be fired, Louis took advantage of an invite to talk with Joan Rivers after her set.

The two talked a lot, and candidly, about the comedy business and it's genuinely fascinating stuff. But, in typical 'Louie' fashion, Louis misconstrued some of her statements and abruptly went in for the kiss.

Rivers initially pushed him off, shouting, "I'm older than your grandmother!"

But seeing his apologies and puppy dog eyes, Rivers relented, telling him she's doing this for him and not for her. "This is for your sake, not for mine. Nobody likes necrophiliacs," she said. "And if you meet Melissa, nothing happened. She still thinks I'm a virgin."

So they went there, though thankfully and apparently after the episode ended. But how many people can say they celebrated an Emmy nod (or four!) by bedding Joan Rivers (sort of, but not really)? Actually, that number may be higher than we want to know.
