New York, NY (The Adobo Chronicles) – ‘Diary of a Mad Diva’ is the title of a new book by comedian and fashion police Joan Rivers, and it has broken all existing records for bestselling books.
The book is number one in the bestselling lists of The New York Times, The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle, People Magazine, Time, AARP Magazine, Congressional Quarterly, The Onion, and even the Guinness Book of World Records.
Thanks to the publicity stunt Rivers did during a live interview on CNN where she stormed out of the set in protest of what she called anchor Fredricka Whitfield’s ‘negative questions.’
The video clip immediately went viral and resulted in a temporary shutdown of many Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram accounts.
But it was not just Rivers and her new book that benefited from the stunt. CNN’s declining ratings since the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 suddenly shot up to the roof of its Atlanta headquarters.
Rival cable networks Fox and MSNBC suspect that CNN was in on the stunt.
