Joan Rivers Goes Off On Today Show Execs And Ann Curry: ‘Shut Up Bitch!’

Joan Rivers told HuffPostLive host Marc Lamont Hill that she thinks the real problem with the Today show is a very boring Ann Curry and old white men, not Matt Lauer.

Rivers mocked Curry’s over-the-top empathy when she asked Hill, jokingly, if he liked coffee. “Do you like reaaaaalllllyyyy like coffee? Reaaaaallllyyyy? That’s making me cry that you like coffee,” said Rivers, pretending to wipe away tears.

“I used to scream at the set ‘Shut up bitch!'”, shouted Rivers.

Rivers quickly added, “But she’s a very nice woman, and I’ve heard Matt Lauer is a toughie.”

Rivers defend Lauer and said she thinks the real problem with the Today Show is “It’s run by a lot of white men that went to Ivy League schools and didn’t keep up with the times.”

“You can’t sit on your laurels,” Rivers said.

Speculation around Lauer and the show is running rampant as the legendary morning show has struggled to keep up with Good Morning America.
