Joan Rivers Doesn’t Like to be Called ‘Mean’

Joan Rivers Leaving Her Book Signing In Washington DC

She can sure dish it out, but comedian and Fashion Police star, Joan Rivers, can’t seem to handle it when the critique is thrown in her direction.  While promoting her new book, Diary of a Mad Diva, on CNN over the weekend, Rivers stormed out of the interview when Fredericka Whitfield remarked that Fashion Police was ‘mean.’

“It’s not mean,” Rivers, 81, insisted. “I tell the truth. I’m sure I say the same things your viewers say to their friends sitting next to them on the couch.”

She seemed to get more unsettled as Whitfield asked her about the jokes she makes about topics that might seem “off-limits” – Casey Anthony and Princess Diana – in her book. “Life is very tough, and if you can make a joke to make something easier, and funny, do it,” Rivers responded.

When Whitfield mentioned the fact that Rivers is wearing a fur coat on the cover of her book, Rivers got even angrier.

“This whole interview is becoming a defensive interview,” Rivers fumed. “Are you wearing leather shoes? Then shut up.”

“I’m going,” Rivers declared, pulling out her earpiece. “All you’ve done is negative … I’ve made people laugh for 50 years. I am put on earth to make people laugh.”

Standing up to leave, she told Whitfield, “You are not the one to interview a person who does humor. Sorry.”

Whitfield explained after the interview that she thought Rivers was joking the whole time and wondered if it was a stunt, but told viewers that off-camera Rivers was still wearing her microphone and “dropped some rather unflattering four-letter words. So, yeah, she was serious.”

Sounds like Rivers was a little cranky.  The woman is 81 though.  The filter is gone, or was never there, and she’s clearly got a chip on her shoulder.  You’d think she would have thicker skin by now.  Perhaps it’s been pulled a little too thin with all the work she’s had done.  Her book is causing a lot of controversy over its… shall we say… mean-spirited attacks on many celebrities.

Joan Rivers Mocks Lindsay Lohan’s Miscarriage

Joan Rivers Mocks Lindsay Lohan's Miscarriage

Joan Rivers hasn’t become famous for holding her tongue for her opinions on various things and apparently Lindsay Lohan’s reported miscarriage is no different!

When asked what she thought by the news, Joan said, “I hope she kept it.”

Melissa recoiled, but Joan continued, “Excuse me, what do you think I am? I was born with a coat hanger in my ear.”

She then proceeded to have a good chuckle when asked whether or not she felt Lindsay would’ve made a good mother. She said in response, “She would have been diapering the wrong end.”

What do you think of her comments? So, so wrong? Or spot on?

Joan Rivers has some unpleasant thoughts about Gwyneth Paltrow

Joan Rivers rarely has a nice thing to say about anybody, and that’s her whole schtick, so I get it (even if I think it’s horribly unfunny). That being said, it’s not particularly surprising that she’s not too keen on Gwyneth Paltrow and has made some pretty unkind comments about her.

Your move, Gwyneth. Joan Rivers threw down the gauntlet during her Watch What Happens Live appearance on Wednesday, April 17, when a viewer asked which stars had given the comedian a hard time about her Fashion Police jokes.

“The worst criticism was, ugh, Gwyneth Paltrow,” the red carpet veteran answered without pause. “She came and yelled at us, but she stood up. She can’t sit down ’cause she’s got a stick up her rear end.”

Host Andy Cohen laughed, but Rivers, 80, wasn’t done. “The world’s most beautiful woman voted by Helen Keller and Stevie Wonder,” she scoffed of the Oscar-winning actress and recently separated Goop founder, 41. “Not my favorite.”

Heh – I guess it’s funny for adult women to put each other down on national TV now? However you get your kicks, I suppose. I’m no Gwyneth Paltrow fan, but I’m even less of a Joan Rivers fan, so I find this pretty obnoxious, to be honest.

Lindsay Lohan offered a job in porn!

Lindsay Lohan is looking at 3 months in rehab. And rehab doesn’t come cheap. The alleged bill for such a stay is $125,000.

Tube8.com has found a solution to Lindsay’s problems. The site is offering to cover $50,000 at the Betty Ford Clinic in exchange for working for them.

Now it’s not exactly what you might be thinking. They actually want to give her a job as a marketing consultant. But not only that. They are offering her unlimited access to their porn collection. EW!

However, Linsday’s rehab fees may ring up to around $150,000 radaronline.com has learned! Will Tube8.com cover all of that too?

It does appear that Lindsay is strapped for cash and is not sure how she will pay her rehab bill.

If I remember correctly, Lindsay does have another option here. A while back I believe Joan Rivers tweeted that she and her daughter Melissa would be willing to pay for Lindsay’s rehab.

Maybe the offer still stands. Time to give Joan a call.
