Missing Joan Rivers!

Joan Rivers, will be missed----probably more so by your manager, and  people whose bills you paid. I didn't like her TV show on E, of Fashion Police, but I miss her style of humor. She said what we were all thinking. Her style of humor was ageless, funny, brash, often crass, hilarious, and she made it BIG in a business dominated by men.
Joan Rivers was born in 1933, died of surgery complications, in 2014.

She was a voice that we needed to hear. Yeah, sure some of her jokes were downright cruel, but she was incredibly funny. She joked about herself and other women. Somehow she managed to make growing older a funny thing, not something we all should not do and we should not enjoy. No one was safe when it came to Joan Rivers, she even made fun of Michelle Obama, abortions, giving birth, suicide, and plastic surgery.

Joan Rivers was so funny,  I loved watching her seemingly weekly appearances on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. That is until she got her own show on FOX, and Johnny would not talk to her anymore. Talk about childish behavior!

I miss her style of humor because she was one of the only people, who said what was politically incorrect, and made it funny. She made fun of herself, which many comedians do not do. I also liked Kathy Griffen until  she started sounding like a bossy, rabid dog on stage.

Meanwhile I have learned , that Rivers was worth 150 million dollars when she died. I am almost certain her estate will grow exponentially in the next few months, due to her name being out there so much. After Michael Jackson died, his upcoming, heartbreaking money issues were over as his movie, and his songs sold record levels, making him worth more in death than in life. I also found out that Joan Rivers made more money on her line of jewelry than on her stage shows during the last years of her life.

All I can say is Joan Rivers, you will be missed---because underneath that overmade up , over Botoxed exterior was a heart of gold! Copyright (c) 2014!
