On Wednesday, I attended the Christie’s auction of Joan Rivers’s private effects. I’m sorry to report that First Wives’ Club lied.
Perhaps you’ll recall that Christie’s was set to auction off more than 200 items from Joan Rivers’ penthouse, including but not limited to the engraved Tiffany & Co. water bowl belonging to her Yorkie, Spike. Well, guess what: That bowl netted $14,000, because some people have too much money!
If you’ve seen the documentary Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, you’ll be familiar with the famous comedian’s distinctive taste in home decor. “This is how Marie Antoinette would’ve lived if she’d had money,” Rivers cracks at one point in the footage. Well, here’s your chance to get some of that style for yourself.
Melissa Rivers portrays her own mother, Joan Rivers, in the upcoming film Joy, which stars Jennifer Lawrence as Joy Mangano, creator of the Miracle Mop. Rivers appears in a scene that takes place at the QVC studios, where Joan first meets Joy and offers her advice on her outfit, naturally. The comedian had begun…
For some reason, this photograph has me spellbound and I cannot look away. It’s like staring into the vortex of 1992, the year it was taken.
After a contentious few months, Fashion Police returned Monday night with a VMA’s Special, obviously sans star Joan Rivers. Her ghost, however, seems to have made an appearance.
Prince Muhammad bin Fahd purchased the late Joan Rivers’ legendary Upper East Side penthouse triplex for $28 million, apparently with his heart set on a gut renovation. “Not so fast,” howled J.P. Morgan’s niece from the whirling black beyond.
This is probably what should have been done in the first place, rather than having Kathy Griffin attempt to make jokes about fashion, which she clearly does not care about: Melissa Rivers is filling the vacancy on Fashion Police left by her mother, and the show will return on Monday, August 31.
This month's NYLON cover girl, actress Shailene Woodley told the mag she considers bugs the future of food. "I've eaten ants and that was great," she said. "And June bugs, that was great. I think the future of food is in insects, so we'll see what happens." Me and Woodley, well we have different views on the…
Comedian Kathy Griffin is taking a stand. After a seven-episode stint, she quit E!'s reliably savage roundtable gabfest Fashion Police with a socially conscious flourish, calling herself a feminist whose positive message didn't "fit with the creative direction of the show."
Who will police the Fashion Police? Kathy Griffin, apparently.
"Time was when a woman comedian had to make herself ugly, cross her eyes, or fall down in order to get laughs. Her hair stuck straight up in the air–or else it resembled a ragmop. And it didn't hurt any if she was a few dozen pounds overweight," is the lede to this New York Times piece from 1970 about the rise of…
Remember how Joan Rivers was left out of the In Memoriam tribute at the Oscars last night? Surprisingly, that made a lot of people angry. Even more surprisingly, the Academy has responded with a lame attempt to explain themselves.
Every year, the Oscars "In Memoriam" tribute manages to leave out a few notable names—last year's snubs included Cory Monteith—but it's pretty unbelievable that Elaine Stritch and Joan Rivers, two of the funniest women in show business, weren't given their due last night.
The Church of Scientology played a major role in breaking up Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise's marriage, and even helped the Top Gun star bug his then-wife's phone so he could spy on her.
Joan Rivers said a lot of uncouth shit in her time, and other than the moments she resorted to boring racialist stuff, she was very deft at pulling it off. Especially on Fashion Police, in which her combination of snarking and snapping and self-awareness, at times, made it seem like if she didn't love your outfit, at…
Yorkville Endoscopy, the New York City clinic where Joan Rivers died during surgery last September, no longer meets the standards necessary to receive Medicare and Medicaid funds.
Staff members at a clinic where Joan Rivers went into cardiac arrest shortly before dying did not intervene properly, according to a new report.
In a recent speech, America's least likable Reptoid Rick Perry drew an idiotic and completely specious parallel between the harsh and medically unnecessary abortion restrictions in his state and Joan Rivers' recent tragic death. If you were ever worried that anti-choice politicians had run out of stupid and offensive…
On this morning's episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Wendy caused shock and awe among her audience when she revealed that she once went to Joan Rivers's doctor. You know, the one who reportedly took a selfie with the late comedian when she was unconscious. OOOOoooooOOOOOOoooo.
