Joan Rivers Page 1
Finally! We like our Fashion Police drama right where we can see it — on-screen!
Aside from her belief that bridal-inspired bikinis are a sound idea, we have agreed with Chrissy Teigen (and her Twitter rants) on just about everything. But now that we’ve become privy to the soon-to-be Mrs. John Legend’s outlook on underthings, we’ve become a little bit more cautious about getting behind everything the supermodel says.
Joan Rivers has a sharp tongue and quick wit that’s practically unrivaled in the business, but that’s not to say that she doesn’t get help. Like most comedy show hosts, she has crew of writers for Fashion Police, who went on strike back in April to fight for a more fair contract with the E! Network. As part of the Writers Guild of America (of which Joan herself is a member) the Fashion Police staff was distraught to find that Joan didn’t have their backs in this battle. They’ve now made a video calling her out for not supporting their fight for the basics: health insurance, a pension plan, and fair pay consistent with industry standards.
Great, and now we’re afraid to admit we love Joan Rivers.
Joan called Adele fat, Adam Hill called Joan out, and Bieber had like, the worst birthday ever.
The jig is up with Joan Rivers. We all know she’s going to say and do whatever she wants, and that often what she wants to say and do is close to unthinkable for the average celebrity.
What better way to promote your 20/20 special on plastic surgery than by interviewing Joan Rivers? Barbara Walters did just that — and perhaps got a little more than she bargained for when she asked the comedian what she thought was the most extreme form of plastic surgery out there.
Joan Rivers might not have anything nice to say about Betty White, but she has plenty of good things to say about fashion — and after decades of collecting (and customizing) the work of some of the world’s most talented designers, we probably would, too.
If your love for actress, comedienne and chief of the Fashion Police Joan Rivers was not already deep and profound like a river, it’s about to be. Who else could get away with skewering not one, not two, but three national treasures in under two minutes on The Late Show With David Letterman?
Joan Rivers is not one to mince words.
We’ve tried out a lot of clothing maintenance practices in our years doing our own laundry — soaking stains in really hot water before washing, using vinegar to get our whites whiter, things like that. But we never thought we’d be turning to our liquor cabinet for help on wash day. Never, that is, until Joan Rivers told us to.
Interviewing Joan Rivers may well be every fashion blogger’s dream — no matter what you ask her, you know you’re going to get something awesome. Which is why The Cut’s interview with Joan and her daughter Melissa is both wide ranging and hilarious — the pair opine on everything from Prada, to Kate Middleton, to why hosting a weekly Fashion Police show is so much better than being stuck on the red carpet.
Here’s the thing: Joan Rivers has been an acerbic red carpet fashion know it all for longer than most of us have been alive. And when you’ve logged that many hours telling other people that their clothes either look fabulous (or like complete and total dreck) you’d better have the wardrobe to back it up. Rivers proved her mettle in when BlueFly came calling to do one of its Closet Confessions interviews.
After a break from the network in 2007, E! has given Joan Rivers her very own weekly series. The show, which will air Friday mornings, will focus on celebrity fashion.
