Joan Rivers Claims She 'Found' Oprah Winfrey (VIDEO)

Is Joan Rivers responsible for Oprah Winfrey's meteoric success?

"I Found (Oprah)" Rivers proclaimed on 'Anderson Cooper 360' (weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN.) " I found her in Chicago and fought with 'The 'Tonight Show' (which Rivers often guest hosted in the '80s) to bring her on. And I was the first person to put her on national television."

Given this, Winfrey and Rivers must be close, right?

"Haven't been on (her) show since," Rivers joked. "She's not fuzzy about me, obviously." ("I've been on every now and then," Rivers later said.)

Last June, the National Enquirer reported that Rivers had been telling people that Oprah was "The biggest phony in the world," which perhaps could have contributed to the lack of fuzziness between the two women.
