Glassman said the pair became friends during that meeting, at which Glassman wore a flowing white gown and chased off the disturbing spirits in a night of rituals.

“Sallie Ann Glassman is my spiritual guide, my sounding board, my friend. Sallie arrived in New York — white garb and paraphernalia in tow — and after an unusual night, she not only cleaned out my apartment but all the apartments in my building,” Rivers said. Next month, the comedian is heading to New Orleans to host two stand-up shows benefiting Glassman’s New Orleans Healing Center.

“Joan is hilarious. She says things that you can’t believe, and that’s what people love about her,” Glassman said.

Rivers will perform at Cafe Istanbul, the performance hall at the New Orleans Healing Center.
