BWW TV EXCLUSIVE: Joan Knows Best? Joan & Melissa Rivers Get Candid About Life, Theater & Season 2 of JOAN & MELISSA!
Talk about Mama Drama - round two! This season, JOAN AND MELISSA: JOAN KNOWS BEST? digs deeper into the lives of Joan and Melissa Rivers - the funny, multi-talented mother- daughter duo, giving viewers an inside look once more at what life is really like for this entertainment dynasty of two. Joan is still Melissa's permanent houseguest, occupying the basement and constantly invading Melissa's turf. With the success of "Fashion Police" and their individual business ventures, both women have a lot to manage, in addition to each other. Working together, living together and playing together would probably be too much for most families, but is it for these two?
BroadwayWorld's Richard Ridge checked in with the pair over a delicious plate of meats and cheeses at Tony's DiNapoli in Times Square to find out. Click below to hear from the dynamic duo on growing up Rivers, their ever-evolving relationship, and everything reality TV.
The smotherhood returns when season 2 of JOAN AND MELISSA: JOAN KNOWS BEST? premieres tonight, January 24 at 9pm EST on WEtv. The ten episode series broadcasts on Tuesdays at 9pm on WEtv.
On this season of JOAN AND MELISSA: JOAN KNOWS BEST?, audiences witness family drama Rivers-style. The Rivers clan is on the move - from Joan's uber-plush East Side apartment in Manhattan, to a deluxe suite at a Las Vegas casino where she's headlining, to a frontier ranch in Wyoming where chaos and comedy follow. Meanwhile, back at home Melissa continues to be in a committed relationship with Jason - or as Joan bluntly puts it, she's "still unmarried." Now that her nanny has left, Melissa struggles to balance her career with raising her lovable 10-year-old son Cooper. With both Melissa and Joan's lives in overdrive these days, assistant Sabrina's sassy sister Melody has joined to help add order to this household. And viewers meet Tony Tripoli, Joan's head writer on their hit show "Fashion Police," who has a "friendly rivalry" with the Rivers other stand-up comedian friend, Lynn. Also, this season, we see Joan and Melissa amongst their celebrity friends such as Perez Hilton, Jimmy Fallon, Jason Alexander and Carol Burnett.
WE tv's JOAN AND MELISSA: JOAN KNOWS BEST? is a mix of comedy, reality and relatability. Like any family where there's ample craziness and differences of opinion, their love is evident. At times loving and at times tumultuous, this ultimate mother-daughter showdown addresses the feelings most daughters have towards their mother in the return of smotherhood.
