Comedian Joan Rivers has had enough of the negative comments from fans, and especially from Fredricka Whitfield. Joan walked off screen during a recent televised interview with the CNN anchor, and David Letterman thought it would be a perfect opportunity to bring Joan on the show and mock the comedian for her outburst! Check out what David did to Joan below!

Comedian and author Joan Rivers, 81, fired back at anchor CNN Fredricka Whitfield after she made negative comments about the comedian’s humor in a recent interview.  Late Show host David Letterman brought Joan in to sit with him and talk about her new book Diary of A Mad Diva and her blowout with Fredricka. Click to watch the prank that David pulled on longtime friend Joan — we promise you’ll be laughing!

Joan was definitely one Mad Diva!

In her recent interview with CNN, Joan stormed off in the middle of the segment when she realized Fredricka was criticizing her humor as “very mean in some ways.”

Who else would mock the comedian’s acting out other than Late Show host David Letterman?

Joan told David that the anchor’s questions were “nasty” and even compared the interview to her own wedding night!

In their interview, David definitely gave Joan a taste of her own humor. However, Joan seemed to have handled this situation a little better — she ended up jokingly interviewing herself when David walked out on her.

David Letterman Will Not Return After Contract Ends In 2015

David renewed his contract in 2013; unfortunately, it was only for two years and he will not be returning once the contract ends. Either way, he had an incredible 22 years on the Late Show!

CBS announced on April 10 that Stephen Colbert would be replacing David — we know he’ll do an awesome job as the host!

What do you think of David’s spoof on Joan’s CNN interview, HollywoodLifers? Do you think Joan was right in storming out of the CNN interview? Let us know your thoughts!
