Carol Burnett Joan Rivers, The two comediennes and actresses had what appeared to be an awkward encounter on a recent episode of Rivers’ WE tv reality show “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best.”

In the scene, Rivers, 78, approaches Burnett, 78, in a restaurant, where she is dining with a male companion. Burnett tells her: “You’ve done something,” referring to her frequent plastic surgery procedures, to which Rivers replies: “A little, yes. New chin, new nose. Cheekbones.”

She then asks Burnett if she could appear at a fundraiser her daughter Melissa is organizing for her son Cooper’s school.

“I really can’t, Joan,” Burnett says.

“I didn’t give you the date,” Rivers replies. “It’s Memorial Day Weekend.”

“Oh, I’m sorry, I’m busy all of May,” Burnett says.

Rivers tells her she feels “an animosity” from her.

“What is it?” she asks.

“Hawaii,” Burnett says as she slaps her napkin down on the table and prepares to walk away. “Hawaii!”

According to WE tv, Rivers once “ruined a family trip” Burnett had in Hawaii and the comedienne has never forgiven her for it. Spokespeople for the two had no immediate comment about the issue.

Rivers Tweeted: “I LOVE Carol Burnett!!! #JKB”

It is unclear if the scene was scripted, as many reality shows are. The episode, which aired on February 28, marked the first time the two have been on screen together since Rivers appeared on Burnett’s sketch comedy series, “The Carol Burnett Show,” for the third time in 1975.

Burnett has been keeping busy in recent years with her own television projects. In September 2011, she reprised her role of Verla Grubs on two episodes of the ABC soap opera “All My Children,” just before it aired its final episode. The year before, she guest starred on the FOX series “Glee,” playing Sue Sylvester’s Nazi-hunting mother. She also portrays the character of Hara in the U.S. version of the animated movie “The Secret World of Arrietty,” which was released on February 17.
