Joan Rivers to Doyle Brunson: “Die Under a Deck of Cards”

For anyone who was following Gambling911.com last spring you will recall the nasty feud between comedian Joan Rivers and poker pro Annie Duke.  Both women were finalists on this past season's Celebrity Apprentice and both women absolutely despised one another.  Joan Rivers compared Duke to Hitler while Joan's daughter Melissa, who also appeared on the show with Mom, blasted Duke and her cohort Brande Roderick as "Whore Pit Vipers".  Rivers was selected Donald Trump's apprentice and Duke's posse reportedly gave the comedian the middle finger while exiting. 

Rivers also launched into a tirade about poker players, suggesting they were all dirty.

Poker legend Doyle Brunson came to the poker world (and Annie's) defense.  He would routinely bash Rivers on his popular Twitter page.

On Wednesday, both Rivers and Brunson were scheduled to appear on a Miami sports radio show (separately of course) - 790 AM The Ticket.

Rivers, when asked about Brunson, claimed she didn't know who Texas Dolly is and said he has no ground to criticize him until "he's 76 years old and had a career like I've had".  Brunson happens to be the same age as Rivers, and certainly has had a brilliant career playing poker.  He just wrote a book now available on the DoylesRoom.com website called "The Godfather of Poker".

The radio show hosts claim they had no idea the two guests despised each other. 

"Who is he?" Rivers asks.  "Who the hell is he?  Who gives a damn?  Die under a deck of cards!"

"That would be a good place to go," Brunson later said on the show after hearing Rivers remarks. "It would be better than what she is going to die under....a pile of manure."

Brunson claimed that Rivers had agreed to come to Las Vegas and apologize to the poker community with him acting as a mediator but that she never showed.

"She had no call to berate the poker community the way she did.  It showed she had no class.  Joan Rivers don't need us and we don't need her."
