Joan Rivers is the "white Rosa Parks" ... so says Joan Rivers. She calls in to talk about her insane, hilarious, and GENIUS protest against Costco for banning her book -- and how she turned the company's censorship into a lucrative publicity stunt.

And, Kanye West calls Kim Kardashian the "perfect bitch" -- causing the newsroom to bitch about whether it's ever okay to calls a woman the b-word. (Get ready to hear the word bitch a lot.)

Plus, Randy Travis' gnarly, naked DWI arrest.

Is there anyone/anything that Joan Rivers hasn't equated with Hitler and/or the Holocaust? She's a sad and unfunny troll.

I keep hearing words like genius and master plan when talking about Joan. If she was such a genius and a master planer why couldn't she found a better plastic surgeon or a better agent. That's my question.

Actually, Joan honed her shilling skills on QVC, not HSN.

Costco doesn't has never used plastic bags.
A perfectly good reason for not carrying a book written by a, well, an old plastic bag.

I know it's his job, but Harvey is such a suck-up when he's talking to a celeb.

Am I alone or does Dax look like he is Harvey's just barely younger brother. Geez, he has not aged well, I heard he just turned 30, but it looks like he's 50, he should really ask Harvey for some Botox, but most likely senor Levin won't share with him. Get a Tan Dax!

If you believe Kathy Lee has a point, then you must not believe drug addiction is a disease. It's the same as saying its the mothers fault if her kid gets cancer or any other disease.

30 years ago when Joan was in her 60's she was left in the water to long and wrinkled up. You know like what happens to your hands and feet. Her wrinkled body has remand the same ever since.
