    Joan Rivers Is Not Dead—but Betty White Better Watch Her Back

    Joan Rivers E! Networks

    Joan Rivers is alive and kickin', and don't you forget it.

    Although a rumor circulated today that E!'s own beloved Fashion Police host had passed, E! News confirms that this funny lady isn't ready to bow out just yet.

    So what's she gotta say about all this mess?

    "I think this story came from Betty White—that bitch," said Rivers, who is far too busy to expire what with her regular appearances on E!, her stand-up gigs and recent appearance on Louie (in which she bedded the hapless comic).

    Still, while it must be kind of flattering to get your very own seal of celebrity approval, the death hoax, the comedian was more baffled by the timing than anything else.

    "I don't know where this came from. I did very well performing this weekend in Ottawa," Joan tells E! News, referring to the launch of the Jewish Federation of Ottawa 2012 Annual Fundraising Campaign at the National Arts Centre. "I didn't even bomb on stage."

    Dead, hardly? We're pretty sure she killed.
