Moderator Nicolle Wallace shared that she showers three times a day, prompting Rivera to open up about her take on showering multiple times a day. "I think that white people shower a lot more than ethnic," Rivera told a chuckling Wallace. "I feel like showering more than once a day or every day is such a white people thing."

After a black woman in the audience chimed in, saying that she does shower frequently, Rivera attempted to clarify her statement. “My mom is half black, half Puerto Rican. She showers every day, so I can say this,” Rivera said. “But I’m now married to a white man. And he showers a lot, like two, three times a day.”

"I'm like, 'What are you doing?'" Rivera added, referring to her husband, Ryan Dorsey. She also revealed that she often takes a couple of days between showers! "So the study says, a dermatologist says you are only supposed to shower once or twice every three days, so I'm right on the mark," Rivera said.
