THE BIOGRAPHY OF JOAN RIVERS
JOAN RIVERS is a force of nature and one of the hardest-working celebrities in the world. An entertainment legend of unparalleled accomplishment and talent, she's an internationally renowned comedienne, Tony nominated actress, best-selling author, Emmy Award-winning television talk show host, playwright, screenwriter, motion picture director, columnist, lecturer, syndicated radio host, jewelry designer and cosmetic company entrepreneur, red carpet fashion laureate, businesswoman -- and most importantly, a proud mother and grandmother.
A pre-eminent connoisseur of fine art, antiques, and vintage jewelry, Joan keeps her finger on the pulse of all the latest trends and is widely considered America's most visible, accessible, and authoritative fashion spokesperson. Her firm belief that when women look their best they can be their best was the inspiration for Joan Rivers Beauty, a continually expanding line of products.
Joan consistently appears on Best Dressed lists around the world. Along with her daughter Melissa, she hosted E!'s red-carpet events from 1996-2004. From 2004-2007, they continued their "must-see" red-carpet coverage of the Emmys and other awards ceremonies for the TV Guide Channel, garnering the highest ratings ever for the channel.
Joan Rivers embodies class, confidence, and chutzpah in all the right proportions, and her accomplishments are extraordinary. Her most joyous triumph is being grandmother to Melissa's son, Cooper (Edgar Cooper Endicott), who was born on December 1, 2000.
