The Iconic Joan Rivers Always Had Her Gays
The indomitable Joan Rivers takes the MGM Grand Theater at Foxwoods Resort Casino by storm on Saturday, July 20, at 8 p.m.
Rivers, who is possibly the hardest working person on the planet, is an "Emmy-award-winning television talk-show host, Tony-award-nominated actress, bestselling author, playwright, screenwriter, film director, columnist, lecturer, syndicated radio host, jewelry designer, cosmetic-company entrepreneur and red-carpet fashion laureate has only continued her relevance as evidenced by her growing group of almost two million Twitter followers."
She now had her very own webcast series, "In Bed With Joan." The series showcases celebrities ’coming out of the closet’ to talk about their lifestyle and the start of their career. Her own reality TV series, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best" was recently picked up for a fourth season which will air early 2014.
Joan took time out of her busy schedule to chat with me.
"Work is pleasure. Writing, performing...I love the work. My energy comes from the immigrant work ethic of my family. It’s lost in America now. I sound like a PBS Ken Burns special..."
"From the very beginning I’ve connected with gay guys. My first comedy album was
’Mr. Phyllis and Other Funny Stories’. Mr. Phyllis was my hairdresser. I’d say, ’When his roommate died Mr. Phyllis sold him as pop art." People were shocked.
