Joan Rivers talks ‘Diary of a Mad Diva,’ Kristen Stewart, Chelsea Chandler and ‘The View’

Joan Rivers appeared on HuffPost Live today to discuss her new book Diary of a Mad Diva, and she commented on Kristen Stewart’s threat to sue; her ongoing tensions with Chelsea Handler; and her sadness about the shakeup at The View.

Joan Rivers Huff Po Live interview“So I want to go to court with her. I am going to bring an anatomically correct Ken doll and I want her to show me in court where she did or did not touch her director,” Rivers said of the Twilight star. “I think that’s fair. Ken has turned out to be Chaz Bono. Isn’t that sad? I had no idea. Ken is good-looking but nothing at home.”

Rivers then spills on Chelsea Chandler, detailing their ‘fallout’: “Tremendous tension because she came out saying things like ‘I’m the first woman ever to do Late Night.’ So I said ‘I guess everyone forgot the Carson Show.’ And she never spoke to me again.”

Rivers tackles the recent shakeup of The View. “They blew the show up. I liked it when they had Elizabeth on. Elizabeth represented a whole other group. A very conservative and I think it was great the way it was. Leave it alone. Rosie and Whoopi – I want to see that. Strong personalities.”

That clip is at the bottom.

Barbara Walters started The View back in 1997, a topic which resulted in Rivers joking about Walters revealing that the sexiest President interviewed was Richard Nixon.

Summary: Anais Nin, Anne Frank and Sylvia Plath wrote the world’s most famous diaries. And where are they today? Dead. But the world’s OTHER great diarist, Joan Rivers, is alive and kicking. And complaining.

In the extraordinary tradition of The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O’Connor and George Orwell’s Diaries, comes an intimate and enriching glimpse into the mind of the most illuminating woman-of-letters of her generation—the provocative exploration of an age in which she has lived on and on and on and on.
