Joan Rivers was a true legend. She was a hilarious comedienne, fantastic mother to daughter Melissa (grandmother to grandson Cooper) and brilliant fashionista who always said what was on her mind. We all have our opinions on the designer gowns our favorite celebrities wear on the award show red carpet, but would we have the courage to say out loud how we really felt? For Joan Rivers, that was never a problem, she always said exactly what was on her mind, and brilliantly at that. For years Joan and her daughter Melissa interviewed celebrities on the red carpet and coined the phrase “who are you wearing?” Over the last four years Joan, Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos have co-hosted the hilarious weekly fashion show “Fashion Police” on E!.
Today, E! is celebrating the life of Joan Rivers with a 12 hour marathon of some of the star’s biggest moments caught on tape and a tribute to the late great comedienne with a 90-minute tribute special “Fashion Police: Celebrating Joan” at 8:00pm ET/PT.
