Joan Rivers Mops the Floor With Annie Duke on ‘Celebrity Apprentice’

Celebuzz / May 11, 2009

Joan Rivers is capable of cutting down her foes with other things besides her acid-tongued barbs.

The 75-year-old, loudmouthed comedienne took top honors on this season of Celebrity Apprentice last night, beating out poker pro Annie Duke by throwing a more successful pre-party and silent auction for attendees of Cirque du Soleil’s Wintuk.

The victory came after Rivers after a heated exchange during which she likened Duke to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler and compared her associates to the Mafia.

“I get so emotional but I didn’t want to get in the gutter,” Rivers later told E! Online afterward. “I think I got close to it…I pulled it out of the gutter very fast.”

That’s right; you stay classy, Joan.
