Joan Rivers CNN Interview

Comedienne Joan Rivers can dish it out but she can’t take it….

It just took less than three minutes for Joan Rivers  to storm out of a TV interview  over the weekend with with CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield.

The outspoken and openly honest 81-year-old was offended when the interviewer, described her E! show Fashion Police as mean.

Tensions escalated when the CNN host asked Rivers why she chose to wear a fur coat on the cover of her new book even though she knew it would draw criticism.

Joan Rivers is all too familiar with controversy …

  • The comedian called President Obama gay and the First Lady a “tranny” during an on-the-street interview filmed earlier this week.


  • In April 2013, she compared living arrangements with her daughter to the ordeal of three women held captive for a decade by Ariel Castro.  She refused to apologize!

“I’m a comedienne,” she told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I know what those girls went through. It was a little, stupid joke. There is nothing to apologize for. I made a joke. That’s what I do. Calm down. Calm f—— down. I’m a comedienne.” They’re free, so let’s move on.”

  • While commenting about German-born model Heidi Klum’s dress at Elton John’s Academy Awards party, Rivers said, “The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.”


  •  When TMZ asked about Lindsay Lohan’s miscarriage, Rivers said, “I hope she kept it.” And when her daughter, Melissa, showed disgust, she continued, “I was born with a coat hanger in my ear.”

  •  When Lena Dunham appeared on the cover of Vogue, Rivers commented to Howard Stern, “You’re sending a message out to people saying, ‘It’s OK, stay fat, get diabetes, everybody die. Lose your fingers.'”


  •  Jennifer Lawrence is a common focus of Rivers‘ sassy comments. When discussing Lawrence’s condemnation of her TV show for celebrating body shaming, Rivers countered: “I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican.”


  •  Even a baby isn’t off-limits. Rivers‘ comments about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s child, North, on Fashion Police went south quickly: “That baby is ugly … I’ve never seen a 6-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing.”


  •  “Octomom” Nadya Suleman is common tabloid fodder. Here’s what Rivers had to say about her to Jimmy Fallon and, later, Mario Lopez: “Oh, my God, just the size of her uterus scares me. She is like a log ride at Disney. The legs open, and wet, screaming children come out.”


  •  Complimenting (we think) actress AnnaSophia Robb’s skirt and blouse at New York Fashion Week: “This outfit is so young and fresh and sexy. It just screams ‘date rape.'” Great.

So we have to ask…Do you really think Joan Rivers is humorous? or  Do you think she has gone too far?


Joan Rivers Lines

  • I have no sex appeal, which kills me. The only way I can ever hear heavy breathing from my husband’s side of the bed is when he’s having an asthma attack.
  •  I was the last girl in Larchmont, NY to get married. My mother had a sign up: ‘Last Girl Before Freeway.’
  •  Boy George is all England needs – another queen who can’t dress.
  •  I have so little sex appeal my gynecologist calls me “sir”.
  •  I have so little sex appeal my gynecologist examines me by telephone.
  •  Elizabeth Taylor was so fat that whenever she went to London in a red dress, 30 passengers would try to board her.
  • I said to my mother-in-law, “My house is your house.” She said, “Get the hell off my property.”
  •  Madonna is so hairy. When she lifted her arm, I thought it was Tina Turner in her armpit.?
  •  All my mother told me about sex was that the man goes on top and the woman on the bottom. For three years my husband and I slept in bunk beds.?
  •  Bo Derek is so stupid she returns bowling balls because they’ve got holes in them.
  • My vagina is like Newark. Men know it’s there but they don’t want to visit.
  •  I said to my husband, “my boobs have gone, my stomach’s gone, say something nice about my legs”. He said, “Blue goes with everything.”
  • Katie Holmes is not a very good actress. Did you see her try and play John F. Kennedy’s wife? She was so bad he shot himself in it.
  •  I said to my husband, “Why don’t you call out my name when we’re making love?” He said, “I don’t want to wake you up.”
  •  I hate thin people; “Oh, does this tampon make me look fat?”
