"Ha!"--the ghosts of murdered Palestinian children.

That being said, I do give Joan mad respect for being a hustler.  I am also very sad for Melissa; her father committed suicide and she had to pull the plug on her mother.

Maybe it's me, but are there not male comedians as controversial as she was? I havent been a fan as of late, but I definitely think people aren't as hard on male comedians.

people keep saying this, can you name a male comedian that got as many passes as she has and still stayed on tv ? she had no filter and has a body bag of quotes that have been swept under the rug, im seeing a bunch of pics of "joans no fcuks given rivers" on google images and twitter now.

if someone shoved a tooth pick in cee lo's  fat ass neck for his rape tweets, i wouldnt be mad.

Joan Rivers Wanted Paparazzi, Meryl Streep at Her "Showbiz Affair" Funeral


Joan Rivers wrote about her hopes for her funeral.

Joan Rivers wrote about her hopes for her funeral 

Even when speaking about death, Joan Rivers was hilarious, wise, and inimitable. 

The celebrated comedienne, who passed away on Thursday, Sept. 4, at the age of 81, had talked about aging and death repeatedly over her years in the spotlight. In her 2012 book I Hate Everyone… Starting with Me, the late Rivers even outlined her plans for her funeral.

"When I die (and yes, Melissa, that day will come; and yes, Melissa, everything's in your name,)" Joan wrote, referencing her only child, daughter Melissa Rivers. "I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action." 

She didn't stop there, however -- Joan had every detail, from her outfit to the guests to the special touches, planned out.

"I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene!" she insisted. "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 just like Beyonce's." 

The famously talkative star also joked to Esquire in May 2007 about her last words: "My last words? They might be, 'But it was a joke. Put down the gun! It was a joke! Arrgh!'"

On aging, she quipped to The Huffington Post in January 2012, "I don't give a damn what people think. If you don't like my opinion, too bad. That's the only good thing about age." She went on to add of her hopes of reincarnation, "I would be the biggest musical comedy star ever. Audra McDonald, I wouldn't mind being her. Or Patti LuPone but with a nose job, and married to Stephen Sondheim: that would be my ideal life."

I have been holding this in, but Joan was a 'say it as you mean it kind of girl....

I find it ironic that Joan used her voice to be so mean to just about anybody, and it's that same voice she was trying to fix that caused her death.
