'Celebrity Apprentice': Lisa Lampanelli Apologizes To Joan Rivers

Lisa Lampanelli, the Queen of Mean, refused to issue an apology after her "Celebrity Apprentice" co-star Miss Universe, Dayana Mendoza, accused her of insulting "an entire Hispanic culture." However, Lisa is now saying she is sorry to a former cast member, Joan Rivers.

“We had a fight,” Lisa tells me about her relationship with Joan. “But now I'm a big fan because I’ve seen what she went through on 'The Celebrity Apprentice.' When Joan was on it, it was that Brandy who was her nemesis. There is always some whore on the show that makes our life miserable. So Joan, I love you. I understand you. I apologize. See? I did my first apology ever.”

The fight between the two comedy queens happened in 2009 when Lisa didn’t turn up to Comedy Central's roast of Rivers, after it was announced that Kathy Griffin would be the roast master and not Lisa.

At the time, Lisa tweeted, “No Joan Rivers roast for me this year. Not worth doing if I ain’t roastmaster – besides summer is for fun, not work.”
