Joan Rivers, deposed as the hostess of Fox Broadcasting's "The Late Show," said Friday she feels as though she was "raped" by the company. Rivers told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that there was little chance she would return to the show as a guest host. "Let's just say they raped me, but now they like me and decided they might want to keep me around," she said. Rivers, who drew sellout crowds and standing ovations at her show this week on the Las Vegas Strip, said she was bounced from the television show against her wishes. "I've never felt better. I didn't ask to leave, I was fired," she said.
