Joan Rivers Walks Out on CNN Interview - Watch It Here!

Joan Rivers angrily points her book at the camera while becoming agitated during a nationally televised CNN interview on Saturday (July 5).

The 81-year-old Fashion Police personality was being interviewed by CNN Newsroom host Fredricka Whitfield when a lot of the questions seemed to be criticizing her humor.

“I’m going. I really am going because all you have done is negative,” Joan said. “I’ve made people laugh for 50 years. I am put on Earth to make people laugh. My book is funny. I wear fur that was killed fifteen years ago. I work for animal rights. Stop it with ‘and you do this’ and ‘you’re mean.’ You are not the one to interview a person who does humor, sorry.”

“Off camera, [Rivers] kept her microphone on as she continued to talk and dropped some rather unflattering four-letter words,” the CNN host added later.

    So, Rivers can dish it out but can’t take it in? It’s funny to see how she really feels qhen the criticism is turned to her. Btw, she is not funny.

    the interviewer seems horrible, if she did wanted to show Joan River’s bad taste sometimes, she really did a bad job at it.. And I don’t like J.Rivers either but regardless… if I was Joan River’s I’d leave too. She should be fired.

    Joan Rivers has to be the most sickening woman alive. By walking out, she is just looking for publicity.

    Jennifer Swarbrick Says:

    Joan Rivers has been around since before this “host” was even thought of by Mommy and Daddy. She was trying to get a rise out of her and it worked. Kudos to Ms. Rivers for walking. It was a ridiculous interview and she deserved to have her walk out on her.

    This is all for publicity. Her seeming mad even at the end is all fake. Come on now. We are talking about her so I guess it worked.

    Joan Rivers says more than she does not like the dress;she does attack the celeb.
    How dare Rivers get upset with just questions being asked. Just like she tells others not to get upset with just jokes being told.

    @Allie: I agree. All about promoting her book

    this CNN journalist is disgustingly haughty and condescending in manner. who the fk she thinks she is – fake skin, fake hair, fake smile, fake teeth etc. moron.

    What an overreaction, she should just smile and be grateful that she still has a career and can make a living doing what she does.

    Najah Says:

    Joan Rivers is the lowest piece of scum on earth. She’s an old bag of bones trying to keep up with Kathy Griffin. The whole cast of a Fashion Police have me at a loss, not one of them is remotely attractive yet they tear people apart for a living. People who have acclomplishments. It’s just wrong on so many levels.

    Teresa Says:

    I hate Joan Rivers show Fashion Police, three freaky women and a guy, knocking beautiful actresses and what they are wearing. Just unbelievable that they could criticize some of these actresses(example, they were knocking one actress a couple weeks ago because she was too perfect ????????). LOL Walking out on this CNN show was another publicity stunt.

    TheTruth Says:

    No, she was a total b and Joan was right to walk off. You could tell from the start there was something up her ass and was going after Joan

    Agree 100 percent with comments 13 and 14. Joan Rivers using successful people to make fun of. She also has a filthy mouth.

    @Roberta: Yes she is. If you don’t like her, don’t watch her.

    Allana Says:

    Joan Rivers is extremely mean and negative on her show. And its not just about fashion, she crosses the line all the time with her so-called jokes, while the other hosts cover their faces, or turn their head and try not to be seen laughing. Yes, laughter is a wonderful thing, but at the expense of others…sounds like bullying to me. And she excuses it with how much money they make, well Joan, as much money as you have I guess you should be able to take an attack too.

    As for the interviewer, she could have been more strategic. Maybe backed off a bit at times, but still asked the controversial questions here and there. I mean, thats the point of of an interview…not just to get promotion but it goes 2 ways. You promote and the interviewer gets to try to get something out of you.

    @TheTruth: I don’t think the gal on CNN was out of line at all, she was asking questions that we would like answers to. Joan Rivers can ask really insulting questions but nobody is suppose to ask her anything. Rivers just wants publicity for her book because no one is probably buying it.

    @Jennifer Swarbrick: Made up name huh?????

    Robert Says:

    @.: Nobody does watch her. That is why she needs the publicity.

    WTH Says:

    Joan get over yourself. She was not attacking you. I had no idea you were so thin skinned. But you have no problem “joking” about people’s loss or their children. So you should be able to stand a bit of “are you being mean”
    I was wondering if the interviewer was being negative.. she was not. This is what Joan has been asked on every show she has gone on. The women on The View did the same. I guess she is tired of those questions; but you book is about jokes and things about other people. so the questioned asked on CNN were actually very appropriate.
    If you want gushing then only promote on your E show.

    Joan Rivers, a classic example of, can dish it out but can’t take it. A withered hag of a woman….. with her “legions” up in arms about her “mistreatment” ….. LOL
