I’ve been thinking about this lady a lot for the past few days. After much consideration, I have come to a few conclusions about whether or not I was the fan who liked watching her every now and then or was this something much more? We all know Joan Rivers, the loud mouth short Jewish comedian who has graced the stage and television screen since the 1950s. Let’s get real for a moment. This gal hasn’t had it easy. Recently we got a rare glimpse in this comedian’s life. I must confess, I’ve not watched but small segments of it. I was afraid it might distort the impression I have of her. While my opinions may be across the board, they are my own and they are determined upon her actions, not the praise or in most cases the fall out of those actions. After watching the documentary “Joan Rivers, A Piece of Work”, I was filled with a mixed bag of emotions. I began to think about a lot of times in my life that sort of mirrored hers. Instantly a light had come on in my head. I thought to myself, If only I had the advice of the all great and wise Joan Rivers, my life would have gone so much smoother. I’m a die hard fan of Fashion Police, confessing that on one or more occasions I’ve asked myself, “What would Joan say?” If nothing else, she really makes me laugh. If you’d not watched this show, you might give it a gander. It’s a great way to tie off a long work week and help start an even better weekend. I decided to look further in to her reality show “Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best?”, thinking that I might find more wisdom and humor. I queued the dish to record all of these episodes. I was not disappointed. I spent the entire night through the wee hours of the morning catching up on this show. Her episodes are still on my DVR. From time to time when I can’t think straight, when I’m sad about something, when I just want to do anything but think about what’s going on in my life; I pick up the remote and there she is, a bag of laughs and all.
