A couple of years ago, my husband’s son Jay took us to see the documentary of Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, an apt title for this documentary about this audacious, irreverent comedienne, writer, entrepreneur, mother and more.
I read her book about bouncing back and was impressed with her honesty, candor, and advice. Her latest, Diary of a Mad Diva is high on my reading list.
While many people have criticized her for inappropriate comments, she also was self-deprecating, so she spared no one, not even herself.
I liked her wit and sense of humor, and while I would not like to be the brunt of her sharp criticism, she was very caustically funny and I will miss her (…. and Robin Williams). At 81, she was still edgy and entertaining!
