Joan RiversCan she talk!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Joan Rivers will once again team with daughter Melissa for the reality series 'Mother Knows Best,' set to air on WE. The show will follow Joan as she moves in with her daughter, her grandson and Melissa's boyfriend in Los Angeles, where hilarity is likely to ensue.

The announcement was part of a seven-series order by WE, which also includes 'Fix My Family,' about a doctor who fixes family relationships, and 'Sunset Daze,' a reality series set in a retirement complex.

Joan Rivers is still working for E!

by Brad Trechak, posted Dec 23rd 2009 2:30PM

Joan RiversThere have been three constants in this late stage of Joan Rivers' career. First, her project will involve her daughter Melissa. Second, she will work for E! Entertainment. Third, it will involve interviews on the red carpet of some awards show. All three of these are true in her new series of Fashion Police specials for E! Although in this case, Melissa Rivers is a producer and won't generally be appearing on screen.

I remember her best as the voice of Dot Matrix in Spaceballs. I did watch her Comedy Central Roast and found it to be lackluster. After all the plastic surgery, I'm surprised she can even move her mouth anymore. It's frozen in a grin like Jack Nicholson's Joker.

I'm fascinated to know why Joan Rivers' red carpet interviews are so popular that E! keeps asking her back. Does anybody out there watch and like the interviews? Isn't it like watching a train wreck?

Joan RiversCelebrities on the red carpet, take note: Joan Rivers is back on E!.

The entertainment network has enlisted the outspoken comedienne with her own touch of crass to host a couple of awards-themed "Fashion Police" prime-time specials next month. First up: the Golden Globes on January 18, followed by the Screen Actors Guild Awards on Jan. 24. No word yet on whether the Oscars will be added to that list.

Joining Rivers on the one-hour program will be Khloe Kardashian, Giuliana Rancic and Jay Manuel (of 'America's Next Top Model' fame), with daughter Melissa Rivers producing behind-the-scenes.

Joan Rivers on longevity, Brooke Shields, and not caring about Johnny Carson

by Joel Keller, posted Sep 10th 2009 3:02PM
Joan RiversJoan Rivers was in Pasadena in July to promote her show on TV Land, How'd You Get So Rich?, but when I spoke to her after her presentation, I was more interested in a couple of issues. First, her longevity in a business that takes even older comedians and tosses them to the side (Cosby, for instance, is more community activist than comedian these days). Second, I wanted to ask her about her experience on The Apprentice, which included her feuds with wedding planners, Clint Black, and Annie Duke.

But, Joan being Joan, she also randomly let loose on Brooke Shields, Sarah Palin, and whoever else was in her mind during the ten minutes we spoke.

We start off by talking about longevity. She feels one of the reasons she stays relevant is that she doesn't live in the past. "I don't give a shit about Johnny Carson," she said.

Celebrity Apprentice: Annie Vs. Joan

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 23rd 2009 12:50PM
The Celebrity ApprenticeThis season of The Celebrity Apprentice may not have Piers and Omarosa to spice things up. However, poker player Annie Duke and comedienne Joan Rivers are a close second.

In the first episodes of the season, we didn't see much of the rivalry between the two ladies but the past two or three episodes have shown them as enemies. The two of them have done and said pretty harsh things about the other. The war between the two is still ongoing so before one of them is fired, it's time we take a few minutes and make our predictions as to who will win the war: Annie or Joan?

Everything about last night's Celebrity Apprentice was boring - VIDEO

by Joel Keller, posted Apr 13th 2009 12:02PM
Joan goes nutsFor months, the three people who still watch NBC have seen the promos for this season of The Celebrity Apprentice; the big climactic scene was of Joan Rivers smashing down a glass out of some sense extreme frustration. Of course, it made the three of us wonder: did she get annoyed during a particularly tough task? Did one of her fellow celebs completely throw her under the bus? Was it Joan's way to finally lash out at Donald Trump's scattered and random management of the game?

It turns out that it was none of these things. In fact, when the scene came in this week's episode, it was so anticlimactic that you might have missed it if you had turned away to get some ice cream. In fact, this week's entire two-hour episode ambled along so slowly that I thought NBC expanded it to three hours to take Kings' vacated timeslot.

Did Trump go off his rocker on last night's Celebrity Apprentice?

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 6th 2009 4:26PM
The ApprenticeI admit it, I've been watching The Celebrity Apprentice and I have been entertained by every minute of it. Yes, it doesn't take much to amuse me on Sunday nights, as you can see, but those of you who do watch the show must agree that this season's crop brings the drama!

The cast may not include Omarosa and Piers, last season's winner, but Dennis Rodman, Clint Black, Annie Duke, Joan and Melissa Rivers stepped up to the drama plate.

Warning! If you haven't watched last night's episode yet, stop reading this post now and come back once you've watched it because I know you'll want some place to discuss the boardroom drama.

The Celebrity Apprentice made its latest cut too soon

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 30th 2009 12:01PM
Trumps!I'll admit that The Celebrity Apprentice is a guilty pleasure of mine. Why? Two words: Nutty celebrities! Just like any other reality show, seeing people get along and be friends just doesn't cut it. There needs to be an agitator, someone who's going to make everyone roll their eyes and bitch and moan that they have to work or live with such a loose cannon/nutjob/free spirit. The fact that those people are celebrities is a plus in my book.

It amazes me that these reality shows consistently cut their most interesting players because everyone is annoyed by them. And this year's Celeb Apprentice just committed that cardinal sin.

Can the Celebrity Apprentice succeed when there's no writers' strike?

by Joel Keller, posted Jan 9th 2009 1:03PM
Celeb Apprentice 2Yesterday, NBC revealed the cast for the second edition of Celebrity Apprentice, an announcement that had been made in October but somehow kept under wraps by the press until now. How did that happen? Well, my guess is that the press got a look at the names of the "celebrities" on the list and determined that they weren't leak-worthy.

I mean, really ... Dennis Rodman? Dice Clay? Tom Green? Joan and Melissa Rivers? A Kardashian sister that isn't Kim? No wonder why the only people who leaked the news were Letterman and Conan; they cast is barely even worthy of late-night monologue scorn.

Melissa Rivers, meet NASCAR

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 29th 2006 8:54AM
melissa rivers; joan riversThis seems like an unlikely pairing. Melissa Rivers has signed on to work the "yellow carpet" at a big NASCAR bash in New York City on Friday night for SPEED TV. (Why is everything in all caps for this sport?) Melissa will be interviewing NASCAR racers and their wives as they arrive at the Waldorf-Astoria for the NASCAR Nextel Cup Banquet.

I can see it now:

Melissa Rivers: "Who are you wearing?"
Nascar driver: "Uhhh... (reading the ads on his uniform) Viagra, Exxon, Tide..."

Wouldn't it be great if Melissa turned out to be a huge fan of NASCAR? She could talk shop about "aero pushing" and "dirty air" (yes, I did consult a NASCAR glossary for those terms). Check out Melissa Rivers starting at 7 pm Friday night on SPEED TV-- she'll either be making a fool of herself or surprising us all.
