Another actress starting to make big strides in Hollywood was eighteen-year-old Jane Peters, a friend of William Haines - though Joan did not know this. When she attempted to usurp Joan’s place as head-of-the-table and to add insult to injury had arranged to be photographed for Picturegoer, Joan strode into the room and bawled for her to move. Peters waited until the session was over before loudly pronouncing, ‘Madam, I find your manner most offensive. Now will you please go and fuck yourself?’ A few weeks later, Jane Peters changed her name to Carole Lombard. Devotees of the same sense of vulgar humor, she and Joan became and would remain friends.
