The never-shy Fashion Police host and general rude raconteur has a few choice words for Ann Curry.

Joan Rivers thinks Ann Curry is "a very nice woman." Aw, man, if this is the kind of thing she says about very nice women, we'd hate to see her thoughts on a**holes.

The comedian and reality TV star spoke to HuffPost Live to make her opinions clear.

"First of all, Ann Curry, with all due respect," Rivers started out, before making a snoring sound.

So she's boring, huh?

"Do you really like coffee? Really? That's making me cry that you like coffee," Rivers imitated Curry's sometimes emotional viewing style, and perhaps lampooned Curry's famous teary exit from Today.

In fact, Curry annoyed Rivers so much that she says she used to abuse her television.

"I used to scream at the set 'Shut up, b****,'" Rivers admitted.

Still and all, Curry's a decent sort.

"But she's a very nice woman, and I've heard Matt Lauer is a toughie," said Rivers.

Yeah, that's the scuttlebutt.

Rivers doesn't blame Curry for Today's sinking ratings, however.

"It's run by a lot of white men that went to Ivy League school and didn't keep up with the time," said Rivers. "You can't sit on your laurels."

Rivers is on a bit of a tear lately. In February, she made a Holocaust joke on Fashion Police about a dress Heidi Klum wore that drew widespread ire: "The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens," she said then.

She was also booed on the Letterman show in February after commenting that Adele's song "Rolling in the Deep" should have included lyrics about rolling in fried chicken.

Seems she wasn't done making Adele cracks, since she also tore into her in the HuffPost Live interview, saying Adele was a "chubby lady who's very, very rich and she should just calm down, or lose weight."

Rivers said that Adele wanted "an apology" after Rivers called her fat on Letterman and Twitter: "I took an ad out on her a**. I said, ‘You are not fat.’ And then I had room for a lot of other ads."

"Adele is beautiful and successful and has what, $100 million? Let’s face reality: she’s fat," Rivers summed up.
