Joan Rivers is reportedly delighted with the amount of publicity Khloé Kardashian has generated for her.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was due to appear on the comedian’s TV show Fashion Police today, but yesterday it was claimed she’d pulled out. Khloé was apparently upset that Joan had poked fun at her sister Kim’s notorious sex tape with Ray J.
Although much was made of their supposed feud, Joan is apparently laughing off the incident.
“Joan is fine,” a source laughed to New York Daily News’ Confidenti@l aolumn. “She says, ‘Thank you for the publicity for Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?’ What is she going to do? She wrote new jokes. She’s doesn’t give a sh*t about the Kardashians.”
Joan reportedly shot the spoof version of Kim’s racy tape for her TV show Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best, which follows the lives of the 80-year-old comedian and her grown-up daughter Melissa.
It’s claimed that it was bosses of the E! network for were eager for Khloé to get involved with Fashion Police. Her family’s reality program and the fashion series, which also stars Kelly Osbourne, are both shown on the channel.
“This is unprofessional to do this,” an insider from the network apparently said. “She pulled out at the last minute.”
It’s not the first time Khloé has stood up for her family in public. Earlier this month she was accused of stopping two interviews with Australian media as she didn’t like their line of questioning. One asked her about Kim’s upcoming marriage to Kanye West, while another quizzed her on the power couple’s baby daughter North. Khloé insisted she didn’t cut the interviews off, rather there were problems with the phone lines.
