Television personality Joan Rivers attends the 2013 Matrix New York Women in Communications Awards at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, in New York on April 22, 2013.

Cleveland - Joan Rivers refuses to apologise for comparing living in her daughter's guest room with the captivity of three women kidnapped in Cleveland.

Rivers and her daughter discussed their reality show on Tuesday on NBC's ‘Today’ show and she complained about her living arrangements, saying, “Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space.”

In a statement sent to The Associated Press by her publicist, the Fashion Police host says it was a joke she made as a comedian. She says the women are free and people should move on. She says she's “thrilled they are OK.”

A statement from attorneys for Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus had called Rivers' remark hurtful and said she should apologise.
