Joan Rivers Storms Out Of Interview w/ CNN's Fredricka Whitfield

Comedienne Joan Rivers stormed out of an interview with CNN's Fredricka Whitfield on Saturday after the interview took a turn from simple promotion of Joan's book Diary of a Mad Diva to what Rivers perceived as criticism.

Watch!

Was Joan right to storm out? Team Joan or Team Fredricka?

Comments

That reporter is a bitch, she clearly does not like Joan Rivers as evident by some of the stupid questions she asked. Joan was just trying to promote her new book and this woman just wanted to grill her. I'll say it that reporter is a self righteous twat.

Joan was funny in her own rite when only White people saw her during an era of racism. Her stand ups sucked and the only way to redeem herself was to make fun of people. Yet when the witch gets a taste of her own medicine, she has to storm off camera. She was correct about Winston Churchill; she left on a vacation. She couldn't face her own same de mise.

Joan rivers... do it right....

Fredricka... she is ASS.... never like her... she have to move to Fox News!

Good night, Joan. Time to say good-bye. You have passed your expiration date.

Joan has a 30million new york apartment and other properties she owns outright, and millions of dollars liquid. She must be doing something correct with her life, as it was not inherited.

This interviewer is just a worthless, typical sassy nigger who is honestly not qualified of interviewing even lowest rank of celebrity.

You accuse me of being "jealous" because I don't find her funny? Grow the fuck up! 

Joan Rivers is not funny. She's snarky and mean. It's silly that she is still even relevant these days. This just seemed like a cat-fight caught on tape.

I love Joan yes but i do think she got a little too defective on the comments that were made.. 

Everyone loves Joan...! she should be commended on all her hard work and comedy she has provided for years and is still going strong with a new book  and SHOULD not be degraded...
Fredricka your career won't last as long as Joan's !! Cnn pls get an new interviewer..

Joan is an old lady has-been comedian of yesteryear. Trying desperately to stay relevant.

your idiotic name says it all - you are jealous schmuck

Team Joan! Get a grip Fredericka. Your shtick is tired. Joan's is still funny, fresh and timeless after all these years. Who is this woman? Someone please inform her that Joan was "dropping 4 letter words" long before she was even a whisper of breath of a banal existence on this planet. 

I am ALWAYS TEAM JOAN!!!  Fuck Fox!

Fredricka is such a NIGGER NAME!!

This nigger is just trying to get even with Joan or calling her nigger president and his wife a gay man and a tranny.

Just niggers sticking together.

Anonymous....COWARD!!! What, can't stand up and show who you are? Nothing worse than morons who say shit behind a cloak, you are a Fucking COWARD!!

that lady was a bitch but it has nothing to do with her color of the african american race....you seem like a very sad person to be filled with so much hate.

Hmm...maybe you should've stayed away from the lead paint chips.

You are a pathetic piece of Shit

Fredricka Whitfield is a little bitch. 
Did you see the bitchy fake sweet smiles she kept pulling and how she kept tilting her head? She was patronizing and passive aggressive. Very unprofessional and very icky attitude.

JOAN ALL THE WAY! fuck you biiiiiiiiiiiitch - And I can't believe she was defending the feelings of celebrities! JOan is right. They make shit loads of money and she's worried about Joan commenting on their style and shit. Fuck off. Fuck all the way off bitch   

I Don't generally care for Joan Rivers, just don't care for her kind of comedy. BUT, to be objective, she called out the interviewer for being exactly what she is...a hypocrite. I believe there are very few people that don't say some of the very same things Joan says about people. In that respect she is spot on. You could argue that there is such a thing as tact, but we all know that is not Joan Rivers and there is no reason after all this time to call her out on it now. Either you like her or you don't. This was a wasteful interview with no substance and Joan did the right thing here.

JOAN NEEDS TO GO

Joan is a old tired whore! Her breast implants are so old that they contain powder milk!! Its time for them to forward her body to the wax museum!!

That's her kind of humor !

Joan Rivers is a "Comedian Fatal".. she is 81 ... that's the way she is !!  I love that Jewish woman !! ... she made me laugh!! ..period.  Accept her for who she is... a dark humor comedian. Plain and simple... that at times she says wrong "phrases".. sure!!  that is her presentation card... is the only way .. she knows how to react.. 

I call it a draw, there both lousy entertainment.  That Fredrika can and is annoying most time, just another reason CNN is not on my top to watch channel.

Joan is a hott azz mess.  All the crap she throws at people and she can't take a few FACTS thrown at her. Now all of a sudden she want's positivity and niceties given to her out of all the evil she throws at people.  How ironic.

I LOVE Joan Rivers, she is a fucking amazing lovely talented human being and comedian. If all you took away from this was being mean and bitter, it is you who is the bitch who cant take a joke. Sorry some people in this world dont have a sense of humor, just keep doing what your doing Joan! Soo many love you and understand you! <3

Okay seriously, she doesn't just make comments about dresses, she thinks she has free reign to say WHATEVER she pleases because she has done it for some many years.

'These girls make 28 million dollars a picture,' a direct quote from her in this interview, when she was talking about what she does to make fun of dresses. What she has done in the recent months is call out a heavily pregnant woman (8 months pregnant) who doesn't make movies can say she looks like a beached whale, why? Because she was a woman with her husband at an awards show pregnant with their second/third children to support him. She was pregnant with twins and in heels who fucking cares her dress was a little wonky in the cut. She was comfortable
She's a bitter old fag hag that needs to a serious dose of reality shoved up her fucking ass. I am disgusted by Rivers and her humor, I am disgusted by her entire lifestyle.
Personally, I don't care who you are, what you wear, or ever what you eat; but forcing your humor and point of view on people because you can talk the loudest doesn't make you a star, it makes you a loud ass bitch that needs to shut up and understand what people are saying.

Sounds like "Professional Lesbian" is the angry rude one, you need to realize she is a comedian and your just being mean bitter and hurtful not to mention the words you use are Terrible such as "fag hag" "bitch" "fucking ass"  "loud ass bitch" - My point is your a Hypocrite! Use your words wisely and dont be sucha fucking loud ass bitch who needs to take that strap on dildo out ur ass bitch! 

The RUDE CNN reporter was NOT very nice, her questers and tones and her fake smile should be fired ASAP!!!!!! BYE BYE. You go Joan Rivers tell her again to shut up!! I love you Joan.

They both sucked.

The interviewer comes across very wet behind the ears. She's nit someone that's there for the story she sounds more like a a female out for a catfight. Nothing professional out her interviewing skills. Oh and the faces she makes. I know once she play this back she isn't going to like what she sees.

JOAN RIVERS HAS BEEN IN SHOW BIZZ FOR 60 YEARS.SHE INTERVIEWED LUCILLE BALL ON THE TONIGHT SHOW MORE THAN ONCE.SHE IS A LIVING COMEDY LEGEND.IF SHE OFFENDS YOU DON'T WATCH HER.I KNOW JOAN HAS A HEART OF GOLD.SHE LOVES HER FAMILY,FRIENDS AND HER FANS.SHE HAS ALWAYS SAID OUTRAGEOUS THINGS TO MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH.I DON'T BELIEVE THERE IS ANY MALICE IN WHAT SHE SAYS.SHE JUST WANTS TO MAKE PEOPLE LAUGH.I WENT TO SEE HER IN BOSTON,SHE WAS BRILLIANT.THAT BITCH AT CNN WAS JUST TRYING TO PUSH HER BUTTONS.SO JOAN DID THE RIGHT THING AND SAID F-IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Fredricka was being a smart ass from the very start.  She was smirking the entire time which set a bad mood for the interview.  I thought she was very condescending.  Regardless whether or not you like Joan Rivers, Whitfield was out of line from the start.  I used to teach for 2 decades and in my opinion Whitfield reminded me of the some of the students I taught.  It was that fake surprise expression and tone of voice that came off as childish.  I am glad Joan Rivers walked off the set. There wasn't any point in continuing with the interview.

I agree! It's a freaking promotion for her book not calling out on her for what she does. I'm not a fan, but that cnn cray girl is so out of the line. Who ever did this to anyone promoting any kind of product ? Geezzz. 

Joan Rivers is hilarious, and kudos to her for not putting up with a stupid interviewer.

I agree with Joan. The interview definitely had a negative undertone to it.  Each question frederika had was always kindof putting Joan on the defense.  

I personally didnt id to think it was balanced and I could understand where Joan was coming from.  Was she right to storm off?  Who knows

What IS funny is her fucked up face, that is plastic surgery GONE wrong.  Criticize that.. ha ha ha    I don't find her funny ever and her insults are untimely and inappropriate in so many venues like just after the 911 crash she was on a cruise ship saying Get over IT... one week after thousands lost their lives.  She's a blasted idiot with Monstrous Hips..  She's mad off this interview because she can't take what she dishes out.. ugly is what ugly does...  I don't like her.  

I'm a gay man and personally I don't find Rivers funny she has always come off as a fag hag using a bunch of queens material that never got credit for it .... Phyllis Diller was funny, much less offensive & had a much better face job. As for the interviewer it really did come off as a poorly executed ambush by her presenting herself as a teenaged girl at a middle school cafeteria lunch table, both immature & unprofessional...

Joan wanted an easy ride - something she doesn't always give to her 'targets' - so that she could hawk her book.  The presenter was doing her job by questioning her motives and not pussy-footing around.  Apart from being paid to be funny, and she always makes me laugh, Rivers is paid to critique what people are wearing.  How 'funny' that she couldn't take what she dishes out in the name of 'honesty'.

Joan I'm a fan, but get over yourself and take the punches you are so often eager to deliver.  x

Go Joan go go go

Whitfield, please. You are not at Tokyo Delves shooting sake bombs with the girls. You looked unprofessional... girl.

Joan is paid to be FUNNY she can call her own shots.

Team Fredricka. I thought she was being most respectful. Joan Rivers came off very, very high-strung, which is funny since she has no qualms about scorching others in her comedy. She definitely needs a thicker skin.

I thought Joan was too overly sensitive, but Fredrica was a bit self righteous. In the end Joan Rivers looks like a grumpy old woman and the interviewer looks like an amateur.

I thought the interviewer was snarky and negative.  I expect politicians to be confronted in this way, but not humorists.

The telling thing for me is how the interviewer smiled stupidly and ridiculously throughtout the entire ordeal.  Someone walking off your show is not a funny thing.  Why the smile?

At 80, I hope I take as little shit as Joan is willing to take.

I wanna hear the audio from after she walked off, I bet its amaze, haha.

Go Joan!  She was completely right. The interviewer was rude and negative. It's not like she was doing a sit down serious interview with Barbara Walters. 

She freely comments on others behavior and wardrobe, so you woud assume she should be able to deal with this situation like an adult

Why does anyone even bother with her? She's had it. Goodbye!

GOOD FOR JOAN RIVERS!!! I'd walk off too!!!

: )
THATS FUNNY, I THOUGHT JOAN WAS USE TO FAKE KATTY SCUM WOMEN,
HA HA HA HA
: )

#TeamRivers

Yes I did comment with a hashtag #dealwithit

:)

I used to be a big fan of Joan but it seems like lately she's become belligerent and defensive.  She seems to be angry.  I think it's time for her to retire before she continues to make a fool of herself.

she should have walked off sooner.

Wells Rivers overreacted but I agree with her.
