I love Joan Rivers. When I found out she passed away, I was driving in my car and instantly started crying, because for some bizarre reason, I felt like we were related. I read numerous comments claiming that she was a mean, angry, horrible person, and I have to disagree! If you watch her documentaries you will see her assistant worked with her for over a decade. Do you think someone would assist someone for that period of time if they were an asshole? NO!!! Joan used to pay for her worker’s children’s college tuition and sent them to private schools!
I think Joan Rivers is one hell of an icon. I love people that are not afraid to speak their opinion, and I think many of the times she happened to say what everyone else was afraid to say. She was hilarious. I am sorry but some people are a bit too uptight! She worked very, very hard to earn her way to the top, and opened up the doors for many female comedians. Comedy has always been run by men, and it is okay for men to have filthy mouths, but women have to always be lady like. I am totally kidding, but you must remember she became a star in the 60’s and women were seen much differently. In 2014, it is more acceptable for women to drop F bombs and make crude remarks, but back then it didnt fly well.
I think Joan Rivers was a crazy, hilarious woman that pushed everyone’s buttons, but she pushed the right buttons. She was a bit insensitive at times, but so am I! Nobody is perfect; I am going to miss her on the fashion police :(. I hope you rest in peace Joan. I think you were an incredible woman, and you gave millions of people a ton of laughs. You were fearless and always said whatever the fuck you wanted!!!! GO JOAN!
