15 October 2014 9:53 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

Jay Leno is coming clean about his Tonight Show ban on the late Joan Rivers. In a new interview with Access Hollywood, the 64-year-old former late night host explained why he never had Rivers on the Tonight Show all those years after her feud with Johnny Carson.

"When Johnny did the show, he had a falling out with Joan Rivers and sort of banned her from the show. When you took over, you kept the ban alive. Joan never appeared. Why was that?" host Billy Bush asked.

"I didn't want to do it while Johnny was alive out of respect for Johnny," Leno said. "I don't think he wanted to see her on the show and that's why we didn't do it."

"And then after he passed was it just too awkward at that point?" Bush responded.
