IS JOAN RIVERS GOING OFF HER ROCKER?
Joan’s recent behavior really makes you wonder… First she insulted the first lady and the president, then she walked off a CNN interview—all in the course of promoting her new book “Diary of a Mad Diva.” It would be nice if this were all an act to drum up PR for the book, but her questionable, often angry behavior began last year. The overworked writers who provide jokes for Joan on the E! channel’s Fashion Police were sadly underpaid and they asked Joan to support them in unionizing. Joan was outraged and refused. Keep in mind, Chelsea Handler and Joel McHale HAD gone to bat for their employees at the notoriously cheap E! and got them union wages. Writers on strike lost their jobs and Joan didn’t care. We were shocked to hear this because back in the 90’s when we appeared on Joan’s talk show she was incredibly generous and kind. Joan seems to have some kind of anger problem now and we hope she gets a grip. It’s not pretty.
