By at 1:13 pm

Joan Rivers wears fur upsets peta

You don’t mess with Joan.

CNN reporter Fredricka Whitfield learned that real quick when her interrogative line of questioning prompted Joan Rivers, who was trying to promote her new book “Diary of Mad Diva,” to angrily storm off the set.

But not before the Jewish comedienne delivered this epic monologue: “I’m going. All you’ve done is negative. I’ve made people laugh for 50 years, I am put on earth to make people laugh! My book is funny! I wear fur that was killed 15 years ago! I work for animal rights! Stop it with this ‘And you do this, and you’re mean, and you do that.’ You are not the person to interview a person who does humor!” Read the rest of this entry →

-It’s a sad day for Jewish lit fans everywhere. Literary power couple Jonathan Safran Foer and Nicole Krauss legally separated–which means they broke up about a year ago and no one knew about it! I mean, there were whisperings about their $14.5 million Park Slope home going on the market (it didn’t sell), but no one had an inkling that this too-talented-for-words pair was even on the rocks. (Page Six)

-In happier news, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are (allegedly) consciously recoupling. Don’t know what else there is to say except, wasn’t it just yesterday that they were consciously uncoupling? Is there actually a way to unconsciously uncouple? (People)

-Speaking of conscious couples, Jason Biggs and Jenny Mollen are very much together and spilled everything parenthood and their new baby Sid in People this week. The decidedly wanna-be Jewish actor said that becoming a dad was so emotional that he cried in the delivery room. (People)

-First Jewish “Bachelorette” ever Andi Dorfman went to France with her 11 remaining men in the latest episode of this season, and dealt with racism, mimes, and frog legs. Follow Kveller contributer Tova Ross‘ recaps of the show over at Jewcy. (Jewcy)

-Mila Kunis, who is expecting a baby with Ashton Kutcher, plans to join the list of celebrities who had a totally natural childbirth (Kveller’s Mayim Bialik made this list, too!). No epidural, nothing. (Us Weekly)

-Speaking of our very own Mayim Bialik, she can’t name all the Kardashians, but she sure can tell you which lobe of the brain contains the visual cortex. Catch Mayim in People’s video series, “Up Close.” (And we thought we were being original with the whole Up Close thing.) (People)

-An AMAZING photo slideshow of Jemima Kirke’s unorthodox Jewish wedding was featured on the fashion website Refinery29. It was a pretty low-key affair.

The chuppah concluded with the couple jumping into a lake. (Refinery29)

-Meanwhile, Bilson’s former on-screen flame Adam Brody (aka “Seth Cohen” from the “O.C.,” remember?) was spotted in New York City looking adorable with the love of his life, Leighton Meester. No word on whether the pair is expecting little Seth Cohens any time soon. (Pop Sugar)

-Scott Wolf from “Party of Five” formed his own party of five this week. He welcomed his third child, Lucie Marie with wife Kelley and two sons Miller William, 18 months, and Jackson Kayse, 5. (People)

-Andi Dorfman, the first-ever Jewish “Bachlorette,” said “no thanks” to hot tubs and bikinis. “Mine will probably be on the more romantic side,” she told TV Guide of her series which kicked off on Monday. “You will not see a lot of hot-tub scenes; it’s not really my thing. But I feel like you can be sexy by being romantic and it doesn’t need to involve bikinis and hot tubs.” (TV Guide)

-Speaking of the Bachelorette, honorary Jew Jason Biggs landed in hot water for his Twitter commentary on the show, in which he made light of contestant Eric Hill’s tragic death in a sky diving accident. (Huff Post)
