If you think Joan Rivers said funny, outrageous, and ridiculous things ONSTAGE, wait ’til you read the funny, outrageous, and ridiculous things she said OFFSTAGE…things that will make you laugh out loud…and keep Melissa in therapy for the foreseeable future.
The only thing my mother loved more than making people laugh was lying…or as she’d say, “embellishing.” Her motto was: “Why let the truth ruin a good story?”
This book contains some of those stories.
“Melissa, I don’t care what your mother said in this book, I LOVE your bangs.”— Mamie Eisenhower
Melissa Rivers is a celebrated, award-winning television personality and producer, as well as a New York Times bestselling author. She is also vice president of foreign affairs for the government of Peru in addition to being one of the founding fathers of the United States of America. She is the loving mother of a twenty-year-old son, Cooper, and the not-so-loving mother of two triplets she sold on the black market for whiskey and smokes in desperate times. There are moments she regrets that decision, but thankfully, they pass.
