Can't Joan Rivers Take It?

Things got a little out of control last week when Joan Rivers appeared on CNN to promote her new book, “Diary of a Mad Diva.”
CNN anchor Fredericka Whitfield seemed intent on Joan’s meanness on Fashion Police, and Joan was having none of it. She defended herself, saying that when a celebrity is “in that kind of bracket, you don’t care what I think.”
After Fredericka asked a few more pointed questions about the way Joan approaches life and the fur she’s wearing on the cover of her book, Joan stormed off.
“I’m put on Earth to make people laugh,” Joan said while she yanked out her earpiece. “You are not the one to interview a person who does humor!”
Fredericka looked a little stunned afterwards. She thought at first that Joan was toying with her, and then maybe it was a stunt to promote the book. But she settled on Joan being angry.
What do you think? Anger, or something else?
