Joan Rivers Officially Dies

If you’d asked me just a week ago which member of the Fashion Police panel would’ve gone first, I would’ve picked the anorexic with the killer tan. She looks like she hasn’t had a decent meal since the last Pope. My second choice would’ve been Kelly Osbourne. She does more booze and drugs in one evening than most people do in four years of college. State party schools excepted, naturally. I don’t know the name of the resident fey on the show. Every E! show has a well dressed gay who snickers. It seems kind of cliche and racist. Either way, he seems in good health.

Joan Rivers lived a full life. And some other shit. I thought she was funny years ago, mostly before her husband whacked himself to get free of her. When she left the stage to do talk shows, like every single other comedian, she instantly lost 40% of her shits and giggles points. But, she never lost her desire to say things that pissed people off, even when they became less funny. I admire that. Not like throw myself on her casket kind of admiration, but just hate the less talented Chelsea Handler blowing for shows kind of way.
