Joan Rivers has been in the entertainment business for a long, long time but still manages to come up with fresh ideas and keep up with the ever-changing trends.
The sassy 80-year-old comedienne always has a lot to say about everyone and everything.
> She lives in New York City while Fashion Police is taped in Los Angeles. So, the 80-year-old commutes to the east coast every week. “I know every stewardess on American Airlines. If you want to get an extra blanket, say you know me,” Rivers jokes.
> Rivers not only criticises celebs on the show, but also her own co-hosts. Giuliana Rancic says: “When I walk on set, Joan will go, ‘Oooh is that dress yours?” If I say no, it is wardrobe’s, she’ll say, ‘Give it back!’.”
> She tries her best to look immaculate. You know, practise what you preach. “I am always in black, so I put a pretty necklace on. I do my hair and make-up when I get on a plane. Because if I look like garbage, who am I to (criticise others). Even when I walk my dogs in New York City, I try to look nice,” Rivers reasons.
> Rivers is not as nasty as you think. It is really just a persona. “People don’t realise how big a conscience Joan actually has and how professional and lovely she is,” Kelly Osbourne says of her co-host. “Sometimes, we’ll be doing the show and she’ll be like, ‘No, take that joke out, that was too mean.’ People don’t know that side of Joan at all.”
> Even after so many years in the industry, the comedienne is still afraid people don’t laugh at her jokes. “All I ever say to (the head writer) when I come off set is, ‘Was that alright? I don’t think they laughed today.’” – Gordon Kho
