I have always been a fan of Joan Rivers as she is by far one of the best stand-up comedians in the business. At the age of 81 or any age for that matter, Joan was sharp as a knife and always on point with every joke she cracked.
It is a loss to find out that she will no longer be the energy and drive behind Fashion Police! As it was her baby. Joan was never shy about dissing a celebrity for any reason which always made everyone laugh. Joan once said ‘Celebrities make 20million a year – so why should they get upset that you poke fun at them’.
She is right. If no one reported on any of these people they wouldn’t have a job as reporters and writers like myself keep them in the spotlight.
I am excited that the show will go on as Joan Rivers would have truly wanted. Kelly Osbourne has big shoes to fill as I believe she’ll be taking the driver’s seat.
We could do with having a ratchet comedian fill the spot but unless it was a perfectly suited person with the energy and personality like Joan Rivers it wouldn’t be the same.
Wish Melissa Rivers and the show the best!
