Comedienne Joan Rivers was dealt the winning hand after facing off celebrity poker player ANNIE DUKE on the season finale of Donald Trump's CELEBRITY APPRENTICE.
Rivers was crowned the winner of Trump's reality-TV competition during a three-hour finale on Sunday (10May09), after
competing as apprentices to the business mogul to raise money for their favourite charities.
She faced competition from a long list of celebrities on the programme - including country singer Clint Black, socialite Khloe Kardashian, TLC singer Tionne 'T-Boz' Watkins, former basketball star Dennis Rodman, comedian Tom Green and even her own daughter, Melissa.
Rivers insists she had no idea she been chosen by Trump until the he fired her opponent during filming.
She says, "You cannot read him. I did not know until he really said, 'Joan.' I absolutely didn't know... it's so intense."
