Joan Rivers: off the carpet; at the mall

March 1st, 2009
by Allison Kaplan

Say what you will about her face, Joan Rivers is a hard working broad. She lost her voice during the publicity blitz for her books/jewelry/Celebrity Apprentice, which brought her to the Twin Cities Saturday, but she still called in to my radio show, Shop Girls, right on schedule and squeaked out a solid 10 minutes on the wonders of plastic surgery ("it can make you look gorgeous"), her jewelry for QVC ("I put on three necklaces this morning and asked everyone which one to take off. I ended up wearing them all") and the red carpet, where she's been replaced by Lisa Rinna, a face nearly as pulled and plumped as her own. She took credit for pioneering the red carpet interview (true, come to think of it) and declared the current state of awards pre-shows boring, boring, boring. No one makes mistakes; everything is too controlled. She swears she didn't even watch the Oscar's pre-show this year. But she did know enough to blast Mickey Rourke – both the clothes and the surgically altered face.
The "Everything Joan" jewelry boutique will be on display at the Mall of America QVC store through March. What keeps her working, other than paying for all that surgery? She said: "I love style and fashion more than life itself!"

    I love Joan! Her voice was almost gone when she was on the Q yesterday, but she kept plowing through those presentations. She had to sell all the accessories that she wore on the Apprentice. She’s one smart cookie!

    I love Joan Rivers! She is so classy. Her jewelry line is what today’s women need to perk up that dull look they are sometimes trapped in. Her ideas with different ways to wear her jewelry looks so cool! And for all ages. I’m 51 and like that eclectic look!
