It's sad for her family that she's gone, but I'm not broken up about it. Why? Am I a Cruella Deville? Nope. It's just that three of my friends have lost their Dads since last week Friday. It's been a rough week for friends of mine. I'll let Joan's family and friends take care of the mourning for her.

***********

Godspeed to the Dads of Emily, Nancy and Maribeth. I know they'll miss their Dads as much as I miss mine...

CG...you are not a Cruella. The loss of your friends' fathers is your real life, not one of a celebrity on the news. I'm sorry to hear about so many losses in one week.

Thanks Cheryl. All their dads had lived long and fulfilling lives, and my friends have many joyous memories of their loved ones. We all have to go sometime - hopefully we've all had the same kind of impact on those we love.

Not a Cruella at all. I don't "mourn" celebrity passing, for the simple reason that they were not someone that I was personally close to. I do see them as real people with real lives in spite of their public persona. These people have others who love and cherish them and I always think of their families and how hard it is for them to mourn properly with sleezy paparazzi chasing them around.

I was a little surprised to hear Prince Charles recently pay tribute to her, saying she was an extraordinary person who had an unstoppable zest for life. (I guess I thought royalty might find her vulgar).

Thanks for this Dawg...she made me laugh one last time.

BTW, I posted this yesterday but it disappeared. Something's wrong, as I've heard others say the same lately on other subjects.

RIP, Joan Rivers

Wonder if what happened to you is what happened to me, Kayelle. I tried to post the original from FB, but nothing showed up. I had to copy and paste the text without the picture, and then repost it.

creative, I thought you might like to see this video clip from a morning show this morning. A friend of Joan Rivers who was also a comedian accompanied her on a trip to visit Prince Charles and Camilla four years ago and spoke about it on the show: Kathy Griffin remembers Joan Rivers' royal relationship - Entertainment - TODAY.com

Yes GG, when I came to do the above post, I did a little research and found out that Joan was no stranger to the royals. It might shock some monarchy fans to think of this connection! Ha!

(Prince Charles really loved Spike Milligan too).

I saw that too GG.....I never miss the Today Show. It's the first time I've seen Kathy Griffin so likable. She will certainly miss her friend.
