Milton Berle vs. RuPaul

Like oil and water, Milton Berle and RuPaul just don't go together. The unlikely duo were thrown together as co-presenters at the 1993 MTV Video Music Awards, and immediately clashed. RuPaul ad-libbed the line, “So you used to wear gowns, but now you’re wearing diapers.” A surprised Berle replied, “Oh, we’re going to ad lib? I’ll check my brain and we’ll start even.” Snap!
