Video: Letterman storms out of Interview with Joan Rivers

Awkward! David Letterman gives Joan Rivers a taste of her own medicine by storming out on her during their interview last night.

The Diary of a Mad Diva author was explaining why she walked out on an interview with CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield recently , but her story soon turned into a series of stand-up jokes.

Letterman couldn't take it anymore and jokingly took off his jacket and exited the stage, thus reenacting Rivers' CNN storm-off.

Rivers, 81, took matters into her own hands and started interviewing herself. “I’ll just take over, i’ll talk to me” she exclaimed as he left the stage.

Fair play David! It takes a lot to make Joan speechless but we think he did a very good job.

During the Fashion Police host's CNN interview, she was asked about the fur she wears and some of her more controversial jokes. "I've made people laugh for 50 years, I am put on Earth to make people laugh. My book is funny. I wear fur that was killed 15 years ago, I work for animal rights," she responded. "You are not the one to interview a person who does humor. Sorry."

Check out Joan’s the CNN interview that Letterman aimed to reenact.

Can anyone else never understand what she is saying?
