Truth rating: 10

Joan Rivers mocked Kristen Stewart’s threat to sue her during a characteristically no-holds-barred appearance on HuffPost Live on Tuesday.

The comedian waved around a doll, joking that she wants Stewart to show her where “she did or did not touch her director.”

Rivers defended her jokes about Stewawrt (and others) in her new book. She said she just wants “to make people laugh,” and that anyone who doesn’t find her funny should go elsewhere.

The comedy icon also discussed her tension with Chelsea Handler, whom she said “left badly” when she recently decided to exit E!, and talked about the recent shakeup at “The View.”

Rivers has made a legendary career out of being outspoken, spewing forth brash, blunt and bold opinions on everyone from presidents to A-list celebrities. The brand of comedy has been extremely successful for her.

When she gets detractors, such as Stewart, or even fans calling her out, it seems only to motivate her to hit harder next time. Rivers does have a softer side, though. She is frequently seen on her WE TV reality show, “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?,” doting on her grandson Cooper, the son of her only daughter, Melissa.

So, is Rivers naughty or nice? Check out the videos below, and tell us what you think.
