KATHY GRIFFIN ON FASHION POLICE: IT HAD TO BE YOU!

124707PCN_KathyGriffin01cut

There was really no one BUT Kathy Griffin who was suitable to replace Joan Rivers on Fashion Police. Not only is she funny, but she has no qualms about making fun of celebrities. Kathy has been polishing up her own look for the past few years and she’s more qualified to evaluate designer fashion. We’re guessing she’ll hire some clever drag queens to write fashion jokes for her. This will be a fun new season for the show.

JOAN RIVERS LIVED LIKE MARIE ANTOINETTE – MAYBE BETTER

At one time Joan Rivers admitted that she lived like Marie Antoinette “if she had money!” Her penthouse condo in NY was almost beyond belief. One Christmas in the early 90’s while we were appearing on her daytime talk show, we received an invitation to her Christmas party. We were thrilled and staggered when we walked into her building. Her condo was the most opulent place imaginable. Gold everywhere. Joan wanted to be a part of high society. It was like being in a museum. Not our streamlined taste, but nevertheless fascinating. We remember Phil Spector was playing the piano (yes THAT Phil Spector) He was dating Joan’s assistant/friend at that time and he got very drunk and obstreperous. We pulled Joan aside and pointed out that he was not good boyfriend material for her friend. When we aimed at camera at Joan’s ceiling (painted to look like a sky) she scolded us and said “No photos!” We wondered why. The extravagant condo has been on the market for 29.5 million for several years without selling- maybe that’s why Joan worked so hard all the time. Click HERE to see more amazing photos.

JOAN RIVERS LOVED TO JOKE ABOUT BOTOX, BUT IT’S NO JOKE NOW

AG043801_01joancut

We’re still in shock over the loss of Joan Rivers and a source revealed to us exactly what procedure she had done in the clinic before she died. Joan had Botox injected into her vocal chords so her voice would be less hoarse and raspy. (Joan always had trouble with her voice – she never went anywhere without throat lozenges.) It’s apparently a common and minor procedure and generally requires only local anesthesia. This information only makes her death more mysterious. Ironically, Joan made thousands of jokes about Botox during her career.

JOAN RIVERS: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

We’ve been dreading the moment when we actually have to say goodbye to Joan Rivers – for many reasons. First of all, Joan defied all odds and at 81 was one of the hardest working people we knew. She flew back and forth across the country for various jobs every week and never turned down an opportunity to do more. Around a month ago, Joan was at The Grove for a book signing and 300 people were in line when she arrived. She stayed until EVERY person got a photo with her and a moment to speak to her. Joan had a daytime talk show in the early 90’s and we were lucky to become a weekly regular on the show, along with other gossip journalists. Generous Joan flew us business class and put us up at The Plaza. She was always gracious and kind despite her occasionally rough humor. She was healthy and busy up to the last minute of her life, but it ended too soon. That clinic has a lot of questions to answer…

IS JOAN RIVERS GOING OFF HER ROCKER?

122381PCN_Joan10(1cut

Joan’s recent behavior really makes you wonder… First she insulted the first lady and the president, then she walked off a CNN interview—all in the course of promoting her new book “Diary of a Mad Diva.” It would be nice if this were all an act to drum up PR for the book, but her questionable, often angry behavior began last year. The overworked writers who provide jokes for Joan on the E! channel’s Fashion Police were sadly underpaid and they asked Joan to support them in unionizing. Joan was outraged and refused. Keep in mind, Chelsea Handler and Joel McHale HAD gone to bat for their employees at the notoriously cheap E! and got them union wages. Writers on strike lost their jobs and Joan didn’t care. We were shocked to hear this because back in the 90’s when we appeared on Joan’s talk show she was incredibly generous and kind. Joan seems to have some kind of anger problem now and we hope she gets a grip. It’s not pretty.

JOAN RIVERS DOESN’T OWE ANYONE AN APOLOGY!

Photo: Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?

Unbelievable. Those two women imprisoned in a Cleveland basement for ten years by Ariel Castro are ASKING JOAN RIVERS FOR AN APOLOGY! If you recall, Joan made an offhand comment about the tiny room she occupies at her daughter’s house and wisecracked “Those women in the basement in Cleveland had more space.” That’s all she said. Granted, the kidnap situation was far from amusing, but Joan likes to be shocking and can be interpreted as mean-spirited. (Off camera she is a very nice woman) Still, it wasn’t a direct insult to the victims – just a reference. What IS shocking is the fact that the two victims would take Joan’s remark personally and DEMAND AN APOLOGY. An apology for WHAT? Joan is right to ignore them.

JOAN RIVERS MIGHT BE A BETTER NEIGHBOR THAN YOU THOUGHT

Joan Rivers heard a rumor that Orlando Bloom is moving to her neighborhood so she turned herself into a one-woman welcoming committee with a big sign and a chocolate mousse cake. Orlando and his wife Miranda Kerrjust split up very amicably and perhaps Joan wants to introduce him to her single daughter Melissa.

SOMETHING YOU DON’T SEE EVERY DAY: ETHAN HAWKE AND JOAN RIVERS

Who would have guessed that Ethan Hawke was a big Joan Rivers fan? Ethan seemed delighted to run into Joan at LAX and posed for photos with her. The “Before Midnight” actor opens Thursday on Broadway in “Macbeth.” Joan is being sued for 15 million dollars by a neighbor in her New York condo building.

BRISTOL PALIN AND JOAN RIVERS LIVING TOGETHER?

With no “Mr Selfridge” to look forward to on Sunday nights, we have to find other amusements. “Celebrity Wife Swap” can be surprisingly revealing and this week Bristol Palin and Melissa Rivers are trading places as single mothers. Bristol lives in small town Wasilla, Alaska with her sister Willow and her 4 year old son Tripp. Melissa lives in a Los Angeles mansion with her mother Joan Rivers and her son Cooper, 12. (Willow and Joan will stand in for the missing “husbands.”) How BRAVE is Bristol to move in with Joan, who has probably made hundreds of Sarah Palin jokes? (We recall Joan labeling Palin “a Nazi, stupid and crazy.”) It just shows how much these girls love doing reality shows. Definitely worth a look tonight on ABC.

WHY VICTORIA PRINCIPAL’S POSSIBLE RETURN TO “DALLAS” IS FRAUGHT WITH PERIL

#victoriaprincipal #dallas #joanrivers #janetcharlton

Victoria Principal, 62, has good reason to be nervous about returning to television after a long absence. Her skin care line Principal Secret keeps her busy and she doesn’t need the money. But producers of the new Dallas show on TNT are bending over backwards to lure her back – even for just a few appearances. The audience is begging for her to return. She’s tempted, but through the years she’s had considerable cosmetic surgery and looks a bit different. (Actually a lot like LaToya Jackson, if you get our drift.) This means she will once again be a prime target for her arch-enemy Joan Rivers on Fashion Police. Their feud started in the 80’s when Joan accused Victoria of lying during an interview – Victoria shaved five years off her age and denied being engaged to Andy Gibb. Later Joan “accidentally’ revealed Victoria’s home phone number on TV and Victoria sued her for three million dollars. If Dallas viewers get their wish and Pam Ewing returns, Joan will be THRILLED.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
