Herschel Walker

I've Got a GREAT Joan Rivers Story

9/4/2014 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0904_herschel-walker_joan_rivers_gettyJoan Rivers made one hell of an impression on her former "Celebrity Apprentice" co-star Herschel Walker ... who just told us a story about Joan that's pretty awesome.

First off, Walker says Rivers was one of the nicest people he'd ever met -- and says he's "very depressed" after learning about her passing. 

"I didn’t know much about Joan before 'Apprentice' besides the fact she's a comedian -- but she’s much more than that. She taught me a lot. She's an amazing person."

Now for the story ... Walker says," After 'Celebrity Apprentice,' she asked for my mom’s address. Then, she sent my mom a letter saying how I was such a nice man and sent her a charm necklace by the Joan Rivers collection."

How cool is that?! 

"So, unexpected and kind of her," Walker tells us. 

R.I.P.

I didnt always agree with the stuff she said but sometimes we caught a different glimpse of her like the above story. I think she was a very different person when not putting on a show. My condolences to her daughter and grandson, may you all find peace.
