David Letterman Walks Out of His Own Interview with Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers made news over the weekend after she cut short an interview with CNN’s Fredricka Whitfield, yanked out her earpiece and walked off the set. During an appearance set to air tonight on The Late Show, Rivers was attempting to tell David Letterman what happened when he pulled the same stunt on her.

Saying she doesn’t even know the name of the woman who interviewed her, Rivers said she was being “very judgmental, nasty, opinionated, negative.” She joked, “it was like my wedding night.”

Letterman suggested that perhaps the whole thing was a publicity stunt to promote Rivers’ new book, Diary of a Mad Diva, to which his guest said “just the opposite.”

But when Rivers started talking about how she lost out on a big Depends endorsement, Letterman stood up, took off his jacket and walked directly off the stage.

Left to her own devices, Rivers started interviewing herself: “How’s your sex life, you old bitch?”
