Joan Rivers

My Manhole Just EXPLODED!!!

narrowly escaped what could have been a fatal mishap this morning -- and one that would have lived in infamy -- her manhole exploded in flames.

Joan and her daughter Melissa left the 78-year-old's NYC apartment this AM to do a segment for "Good Morning America" -- to promote their reality show, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?"

As their car pulled away from the curb, a manhole cover -- just feet away -- blew sky high, with flames shooting in the air.

We called Joan for comment.  She said, "The only thing I know about manholes is what my gay porn star friends tell me."

Why do I not believe 85% of this story. I hear one time that John Mayer was three blocks away from a car crash.....

I'd hate to be a member of the crew Joan hires to repair her manhole.

For the record, Harvey's manhole doesn't shoot flames into the air. I repeat, those are not actual flames.

TMZ has totally missed the story here. What's going on in NYC that manhole covers are blowing up?!

NYC apartment? I thought that she sold that last year so she could move in with Melissa in L.A. Oh, that was a sham, then. OK, I get it.
