Joan Rivers’ death was remembered by Melissa Rivers when she was interviewed by Dr.
According to a report from Us Weekly , the comedienne’s only daughter talked about how her iconic mother was buried.
News about Joan Rivers’ death shocked the world in September last year.
The late “Fashion Police” host died following a botched throat procedure at an Upper East Side medical facility called Yorkville Endoscopy.
A red carpet staple along with her mother, Melissa Rivers shared how she wanted Joan Rivers to look beautiful even after her unexpected death.
“We brought in everything from our night tables, and then our friend went and we got all of her own bedding and her favorite pretty lounge-y outfit, and I brought in hair and makeup…and they washed her hair and they did her [makeup], and she looked amazing,” Melissa Rivers narrated to Dr.
“Like, her skin looked amazing.
And her best friend kept saying, ‘God, her skin looks so good.
Joan, your skin is so good.
Wake up, you have to see this.’…
I don’t mean to laugh, but you have to.” “I just made sure she looked her best before everybody came to say goodbye,” Melissa Rivers added.
The heir to Joan Rivers’ multi-million dollar estate also admitted that her “no nonsense” mother might not have wanted a gathering after her death.
However, Melissa Rivers explained that she pushed for a formal gathering so that their family and friends could give honor following Joan Rivers’ death.
“I knew that was probably the one thing that she wouldn’t have wanted me to do, because she was like, ‘Oh, please, nobody needs to waste their time.
Oh, this is ridiculous,'” Melissa Rivers told Dr.
“But I realized her friends needed it, and I wanted her to know how beloved she was, because she never felt that way.” “So I took a whole day and evening, and we let certain people know that it was time to go,” she explained.
