Today, people of all walks, but more importantly, celebrities gathered at Temple Emanu-El in Manhattan's Upper East Side to attend Joan Rivers' memorial service, while about 500 spectators and 100 media looked on from the streets outside.
Some of the more famous guests included Whoopi Goldberg, Barbara Walters, Howard Stern, Donald Trump, Kristin Chenoweth, Kathy Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb, Andy Cohen, Margaret Cho, Joy Behar, Matthew Broderick, Sarah Jessica Parker, Judge Judy (Okay, Judith Sheindlin, but Getty Images straight up lists her as Judge Judy), John Waters, Alan Cumming, Oscar de la Renta, Dennis Basso, Dr. Oz, Carolina Herrera, Kathy Griffin, Kelly Osbourne, and Michael Kors. Among others. Apparently guests wore star-shaped "Joan Ranger" badges to honor her Fashion Police tenure.
Howard Stern gave a eulogy, and there were musical performances by Audra McDonald, Hugh Jackman, and the New York City Gay Men's Chorus.
Meanwhile, Yorkville Edoscopy, the clinic where Joan Rivers stopped breathing during a medical procedure (whereupon she was rushed to a hospital) has been the subject of quite the shitstorm. The clinic is under investigation by the New York Department of Health, but its Yelp page has been taken to task by angry fans who blame them for the death of the 81-year-old woman. Because when all else fails, Yelp it out.
