Comedian and Celebrity Apprentice finalist, Joan Rivers, has backed off her assertion that all poker players are "worse than white trash"....somewhat anyway.

The New York Post popular Page Six reported the following:

JOAN Rivers earned the ire of female poker players when she went off on pro player Annie Duke on "Celebrity Apprentice" last week. Rivers, upset that Duke and Brande Roderick had conspired to boot daughter Melissa out of the show, screamed at Duke, "Poker players are trash, darling! Trash!" before calling her a "Nazi." Rivers, who's been receiving loads of irate e-mails, called us and said, "Oh, calm down! I said it about one person. How can I hate poker players? Did you ever look at the cards? Everyone knows I love queens. Poker playing is a very noble profession. A little-known fact is Florence Nightingale had to choose between nursing and cards."
