  • FILE - This April 30, 2012 file photo shows comedian Joan Rivers at the E! Network upfront event at Gotham Hall in New York. When TV personality Joan Rivers thought her New York apartment was haunted some 15 years ago, she called on New Orleans voodoo priestess Sallie Ann Glassman to perform a "spiritual cleansing" of the old brownstone. Glassman tells the Associated Press that the unlikely pair became instant friends during that initial meeting, where Glassman wore a flowing white gown as she chased off disturbing spirits in the building. Next month, Rivers is heading to New Orleans to return the favor. The sharp-tongued comedian will be hosting two standup talk shows benefiting Glassman's New Orleans Healing Center _ a more than 50,000 square foot building housing some two dozen businesses and organizations focused on what Glassman describes as the "environmental, spiritual, economic, cultural, emotional and physical healing of New Orleans" following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
