Joan Rivers Storms Out of CNN Interview, Gets Criticized By Anchor Frederika Whitfield for Being Mean on Fashion Police

Joan Rivers can dish it out -- but she can't always take it. The comedian-author stormed off set during a pre-taped CNN interview that aired on Saturday, July 5. The reason? Anchor Fredricka Whitfield described Rivers' critiques on her E! Fashion Police show to be "very mean."


"It's not mean, it's not mean, it's not mean. I tell the truth," Rivers, 81, interrupted via satellite. "I'm sure I say the same things that all the viewers say to their friends sitting next to them on the couch."



"These ladies make $28 million a picture," she continued of the stars she and her co-hosts critique. "Do you really think that Nicki Minaj cares I didn't like her dress?"

Rivers handled the line of questioning like a pro, but quickly became agitated when Whitfield discussed her wardrobe choice on the cover of her new book Diary of a Mad Diva -- fur.

They're hardly "mean" on Fashion Police (one of my occasional guilty pleasures). When a celebrity goes out in public wearing something ridiculous and hideously ugly, do they really expect only praise?

As for fur, you're exactly right, flowers. What's the difference between using a dead animal's skin for leather seats, shoes or purse, or - leaving the hair intact - a fur coat? I guess you don't have to be stupid to work at CNN, but it helps.  :whistle:

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Had to be. Way back before she got poisoned by the fumes from the red carpet, she was a hell of a funny comedienne and one of the first of what you might call the shock jocks. I still remember her routine on using the washing machine spin cycle for sex .....
