Joan & Melissa

I don't care what people say about Joan Rivers.  I adore her.  As in I wish she was my mother.  Or my grandmother.  Or whatever.

Yes, I know she has had a ton of plastic surgery.  And I know her face is not that "tight" naturally.  And I know her eyes slant a bit. BUT WHO CARES?!?!  When I am Joan's age, I can only hope I look that good.  Yes. I'm being serious.

The other thing I adore about Joan is that after all of these years, she's still funny as hell.  At least I think so ;)  I watched the second episode of Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? the other day.  I laughed.  A lot.

Melissa is "eh".  She's "eh" cute.  She "eh" funny.  She's dating a younger guy (points for her!!!). 

But Joan makes the show.  Then again, Joan has ALWAYS made the show.  No matter what "the show" is.  Do you watch Fashion Police?  I look forward to those awards shows every year.  Not because I care about the award shows, mind you, but I absolutely tremble with anticipation at listening to Joan Rivers tell me what SHE thinks about everyone's outfit.

Do you agree?  No?  Well, that's okay...I'm sure you just think I'm a big bitch right now.  I don't mind.  Just watch what you wear when I'm around :-o

Now, let's get back to this Joan & Melissa show.  I think it must be very trying to be on a show with your mother.  Especially when your mother has moved in with you for a period of time.  I love my mother.  BUT...we could not ever live together at this point.  I feel quite sure that she feels the same way.

So, when you put these two together:

What you end up with is:

Geezzz....what a mess!  What ever made Melissa think THAT would be a good idea? 

But, it's not all bitching and moaning.  Really.  It's funny.  Pinky swear.

So, if you have the WE channel you are going to want to warm up the 'ol DVR and make sure you don't miss next week's episode on Tuesday at 9pm.

I like Joan too. If you ever go to Vegas you have to see the show Divas. Frank Marino has impersonated her for years and is AWESOME. Joan, on the hand, can't stand him. Google him.. he even had plastic surgery to look like her.
As for the show -- watched it the other night and I think it's going to bomb. It's clear that it's scripted. I think they moved in together just to do this show.
