We got to speak with the fabulous and glamorous Joan Rivers last night and she couldn’t have been nicer when we asked her about Jesse James!

Joan Rivers, 76, you are KNOWN for speaking your mind but when we asked you about your former Celebrity Apprentice co-star Jesse James you were incredibly fair. We ran into the legendary comedian at the NYC premiere of her biopic A Piece of Work, May 26, hosted by fashion designer Elie Tahari, and she was decked out from head to toe in glitz and glam. She won the second season of Donald Trump‘s Celebrity Apprentice, the same season the disgraced soon-to-be ex-husband of Sandra Bullock appeared.

“Jesse should have been in therapy years ago,” says Joan. “I’m so sad because he’s such a sweet guy. And when he starts telling you about what he came out of with his background you put two and two together. So you just hope, please God, get into therapy, which he is and try and pull your life together.”

Joan’s words echo what Jesse said on Nightline, May 25, about growing up in an abusive household. But Joan also points out that when she first met the Monster Garage star she has nothing but fond memories. “I thought he was adorable, ADORABLE,” she exclaims.

She went on to tell reporters, “Jesse was a darling and a gentleman. He was the one who carried your bag, he was the one who helped you up the stairs. Sweet, nice … this whole thing is just insane.”

We agree with you Joan, this is insane and we can’t figure out if Jesse is horrible or just stupid.
