An entertainment legend of unparalleled talent, Joan was the first woman to break the glass ceiling of Late Night Television. After she was chosen to be the only permanent guest host on "The Tonight Show" for 3 years, she then went on to become the first woman ever to host her own late night talk show - "The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers" on the Fox Network.
After creating and hosting Live from the Red Carpet for the E! Network (1996-2004), Joan returned to anchor their popular and successful franchise Fashion Police, hosting both its hour-long weekly broadcasts and its awards-season specials. From hot new trends to red-carpet risks, Joan hilariously takes viewers through a recap of the week's celebrity fashion and ultimately decides who sizzled and who fizzled.
Joan also dominates the world of reality television with her daughter, Melissa Rivers, in their weekly hit series on WEtv, Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best?. Season 4 premieres Saturday night, March 29. This inimitable duo addresses the question that has plagued daughters since the beginning of time: Does mother really know best?
Joan is also a vastly accomplished author, and her 11th book, I Hate Everyone....Starting With Me, was published by the Penguin Group in June 2012. It instantly became a New York Times Bestseller. Prior to that, she wrote the other bestselling titles, Men Are Stupid and They Like Big Boobs: A Woman's Guide to Beauty Through Plastic Surgery and Murder at the Academy Awards: A Red Carpet Murder Mystery, both published by Simon & Schuster.
