It was a standard reality show whose focus is the private lives of celebrities. What made it slightly stand out was it’s stars. There was only one Joan Rivers, which helped in a genre that is mostly brain dead.
Joan Rivers was not an ordinary mother. She was mouthy, un-pc like at moments, uninhibited and walked over boundaries as if they were nothing. But she loved her daughter fiercely. In this non-linear memoir, Melissa tells the story of her mother’s life and their unconventional relationship as only she can.
I really enjoyed reading this book. It gives the reader an insight to Joan Rivers as only her daughter can.
