Kim Kardashian asks that Joan Rivers be seated far away from her at NBC Upfront

Joan Rivers is having friend problems with Kim and Khloe Kardashian. Us Weekly reports that at the NBC Upfronts, Kim and Khloe asked that they move Joan to another location.

A source tells Us Weekly, "Khloe and Kim were seated next to Joan Rivers, but they had them move her. [They] both don't want drama and can't fake it anymore with Joan, so they asked the staff to keep them separate. Apparently, it was a hard task because two other people have issues with her and also asked to be seated away from her. It was a juggling act keeping Joan away from everyone!"

Of course, a spokesperson from E! denies that this even happened.

Comedian Joan, 80, is a host for Fashion Police. She allegedly has gone too far in her references about Kim and her family. She spoofed Kim’s sex tape with ex-boyfriend Ray J. She poked fun of Bruce Jenner when he appeared on past episodes of Fashion Police. However, what probably made Kim the maddest was when Joan called North West, “ugly.”

Kim has never confronted Joan over her careless remarks. She even said that Kim saw Joan at Jimmy Fallon. "They even took a pic together when Joan asked."

Joan is a comedian who’s been making more enemies than friends lately. Earlier she made fun of the three women who were held captive in Cleveland. They contacted their lawyers over Joan's remark. Their lawyers requested that Joan apologizes to the women for making such a remark, but Joan refuses to apologize. She believes that what she says in a joke should be exempt of any retaliation.

She told the Plain Dealer on April 23, "I'm a comedienne. I know what those girls went through. It was a little, stupid joke. There is nothing to apologize for. I made a joke. That's what I do. Calm Down. Calm f------ down. I'm a comedienne. They're free, so let's move on."

Perhaps Joan will learn which jokes are funny and which ones are down-right cruel. Do you think Kim and Khloe handled this in the right way?
