Earlier today I was on CNN discussing Joan Rivers’ recent bout with depression. Tune in – below. As you may recall, I worked with Joan on those red-carpet TV shows from 1995-2005 —
Saw it live! Was pleasantly surprised. Here’s a youtube link because the CNN link downloads too slowly –
Tx, Junk — I didn’t know it was over at YouTube. Yikes, those comments over there are VICIOUS, some of them saying “Die, bitch, die!”
And one slap at me is quite justified — yes, I was at times talking about Joan in the past tense, but I kept catching myself by adding present tense, but I didn’t always recover well. Ah, the travails of live TV !
Great piece. Did not know she was having depression problems right now. Her documentary showed some of her problems but that was because she didn’t have alot of work at the time. She is the funniest human being of time I hope she stays strong and gets through this. People are so rude to her with comments like those it is sickening someone would wish death on someone so harmless
I really hope she recovers from this…… She is a national treasure.
I get many people don’t like her, but many people adore her, myself included. She is a feisty, hilarious little lady who I have nothing but love and respect for. I hope she makes a full recovery soon, because I don’t want us to lose another legend so soon.
Praying she pulls through
