Lover her or hate her, she was a trailblazer. She and Phyllis Diller took on male dominated stand up comedy and took America by storm. Definitely a great loss.

In the past decade or more she hasn't done much stand up, but has focused on her jewelry line on QVC, being the host of Fashion Police (on E!, I think) and she also had a Youtube show "In Bed With Joan" where she brought funny people into a bed and interviewed them.

While much of Joan River's "humour" was not my favourite, I did admire her in many ways. She had some tough times in her life and was a strong woman. My heart goes out to Melissa and her son.

RIP, Joan Rivers

Baby Bro knew her personally, when he was an executive producer for QVC. I don't recall how he felt about her. I did like some of her jewelry line, along with her comedy!

Loved her, most of the time. She was so funny, but could often be cruel, too! She is a loss.

I found her no holds barred, frank delivery quite refreshing.

She would have wanted us to remember her jokes...

I love this: “When I die (and yes, Melissa, that day will come; and yes, Melissa, everything’s in your name) I want my funeral to be a huge show biz affair with lights, cameras, action …
“I want Craft services. I want paparazzi. I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don’t want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing “Mr. Lonely.”
I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing like Beyonce’s.”

I saw her recently on one of the Jimmy shows after 11:30PM. She was as quick and as cutting as ever. She really had me going.
