The joke’s on you, Joan Rivers. In a classic move, David Letterman decided to give Rivers a little taste of her own diva medicine, if you will, when he walked out on the comic mid-interview during an appearance on the “Late Show” Tuesday night (July 8).
Moments after asking Rivers to get the full story about her own CNN interview walkout, the long-time host jokingly got up, taking off his jacket and all, and walked away from his desk.
The funny lady, always quick on her feet, recovered well from the joke, just continuing to interview herself, before sending the show to commercial.
