My chat with Joan Rivers …
I’ve loved Joan Rivers since the 80s when I’d stay up late to watch whenever she was hosting The Tonight Show and I’d tape her monologues on my cassette recorder.
This was pre-VCR folks!
Anyway, it’s been a real treat to interview her a few times including last weekend when E! television hosted a luncheon during the TV Critics Winter Press Tour.
When Joan joined us at our table with her daughter Melissa, she shared with us some of her hard-earned wisdom.
SWhen you get knocked down like she has been over the years, she says “you just push ahead, there’s no choice in life.”
And there’s no point in letting your ego get in the way.
“When you’ve been stepped on as often as I’ve been stepped on there’s no ego,” Rivers says. “In our business, survival is working. And you work on any level you can work on. I always say, ‘Don’t say no to anything.’”
