Joan Rivers funeral is today at Temple Emanu El on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Here’s Kathy Griffin on her pal;
“Early on in our friendship, around the time Joan had a recurring role as my mother on the sitcom Suddenly Susan, I asked her, ‘How do you deal with the fact that you’re a nice, generous woman but are thought of as this mean comic? Doesn’t it drive you crazy?’ Without skipping a beat, over her usual meal of asparagus and Altoids, she answered, ‘Why would I care about that? Those people don’t know me. As long as they’re laughing, that’s all I care about. Also, if they think I’m mean, maybe it’s good for my career.'”
