Comedienne Joan Rivers insists she doesn't intend to offend people with her sometimes inappropriate jokes - because it's how she copes. Two days following the terrorist attacks of September 11th 2001 Rivers was making jokes about the tragedy, even though friends of her daughter MELISSA had been killed in it. The 73-year-old says, "I see everything as funny. It's ruined my life. Everything. "I did jokes two days after 9/11, and Melissa lost friends. But that's how I cope."
