The one person I will always miss is Joan Rivers. What a sense of humor and what a lady!
I heard her the other night being interviewed on the rerun of an old TV show. She told us about "covering her bases", when it came to death and the issue of spirituality.
Her husband died in a hotel room and while Joan and her husband were Jewish, she believed that it would do her husband a good turn, if she had a Catholic priest visit the exact hotel room ( some time later), where her husband died...so as to put his soul to "rest".
A Catholic priest did Joan a favor, went to the hotel room and blessed the room .To Joan, not only was her husband now resting in peace, but Joan herself was happy and very grateful for the visitation by the Catholic priest.
If she did not pursue being cosmetically best, for her public, in my opinion, she would still be with us. I had once seen a documentary of her latter years, where she loved having her monthly calendar filled up, to the point of giving shows in places that required her to fly in on a propeller plane. Plus, she took a red-eye to the west coast weekly to see her daughter and grandson. Very dedicated to those she loved, in my opinion. I just wish she could have slowed down a bit, and accepted what years do to one's looks; she would still be with us, in my opinion. (Yes, I'm repeating myself.)
She did have some tiff with Johnny Carson, and since I thought highly of Johnny Carson, I have to wonder why she did not have more gratitude to him for his giving her a break after years of schlepping? Johnny Carson was an ensign, I believe, in WWII. That trumps Joans dynamic personality. Sorry, Johnny helped win WWII, Joan did not.
