Joan Rivers 1933 - 2014
September 4, 2014  | By Monique Nazareth
 
It seemed Joan Rivers would go on forever making fun of fashion, celebrities, aging, plastic surgery and herself but, sadly, she passed away today (9/4). She was a pioneer for women in comedy who, at the age of 81, was still going strong onstage as well as on the small screen, thanks in large part to the E! network’s Fashion Police. Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, released a statement saying: “My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.” In that spirit, we’d like to share a commentary about aging that CBS Sunday Morning had the comedian offer in 2002. It’s Joan Rivers at her best. (Please note: Because this was a commentary about aging, Ms. Rivers mentioned certain subjects, such as funerals, for example, that some may deem as inappropriate to find humor in at this time. We at TVWW felt she'd want the clip to run anyway -- especially now.)-- Monique Nazareth
