Don't worry, Joan Rivers fans -- she's not quieting down anytime soon.

A representative for FOX & Friends tells that reports suggesting the host of E!'s Fashion Police, 77, was banned from the show after claiming Sarah Palin was partially to blame for the shooting of Arizona congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords, are completely false.

Several websites said Rivers' Thursday appearance to promote her new show with daughter Melissa, 42, Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best? was canceled after she told TMZ that Palin was "stupid and a threat" and that residents "were right to blame" her for Tucson-area shooting.

The truth? She wasn't blocked, just bumped back.

"Due to the volume of news topics tomorrow morning and a full show, our booker mistakenly canceled Joan’s appearance instead of re-scheduling her for Friday's show," Lauren Petterson, executive producer of FOX and Friends tells Us. "We're in the process of booking her on an upcoming show."
