Many celebs were scared of Joan Rivers and her powerful verbal jab but those close to her new another Joan, a sweet, generous, caring woman. The future of Fashion Police may be unknown but her E! family will miss her. “E! and NBCUniversal send our deepest condolences to Melissa, Cooper and her entire extended family on this incredibly sad day. For decades Joan has made people laugh, shattered glass ceilings and revolutionized comedy.”
The statement continued, “She was unapologetic and fiercely dedicated to entertaining all of us and has left an indelible mark on the people that worked with her and on her legions of fans. She’s been a much beloved member of the E! family for over 20 years and the world is less funny without her in it. Today our hearts are heavy knowing Joan will not be bounding through the doors.”
Kelly Osbourne also wrote a sweet letter about her “Grandma” Joan. “I’m completely heartbroken by the loss of my beloved Joan. Not only was she my boss, she was and will always be my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the only grandmother I ever knew. She was family and I will never forget her. Laughter will be difficult for a while but when I’m sad, lonely or upset all I will have to do is think of Joan and a smile will cross my face. Laughter is what she gave us and laughter is what she would want us to do in remembrance of her. Melissa and Cooper, my thoughts are with you and I love you both so much. Joan, thank you for taking me in and loving me as a daughter. I will miss you deeply and will always hear your voice in my head saying ‘my darling get out there and be you!'”
E! just issued the following statement on the sad news of Joan Rivers’ death and the future of Fashion Police: “Right now we are mourning our beloved Joan. We will respond at a later date with programming updates.”
I kinda thought she would have pulled through and I was rooting for her to recover from her coma. It’s a sad day.
