    Not many, Hackett passed in 2003.

    She led a successful and long life. No need to be sad about that.

    RIP Joan.
    My thoughts with her family. I loved her, she always made me laugh. I tried whenever I could to watch the Fashion Police, just to watch her and hear her crazy comments. She will be missed, rip.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I'm sure with Johnny Carson banning her as a guest host and her husband committing suicide, she had her share of pains, but fortunately she did have a long healthy life. She enjoyed making people laugh and made the world a little better place.

    She will be missed.....R.I.P. Joan.



    American televison host Mac McGarry (right) interviews popular entertainer Joan Rivers on the set of the TV show "Capital Tieline," Washington, D.C., 1968. On the show, viewers called in to McGarry's desk to ask questions or voice their own opinions.....snip~

    Joan Rivers: 1933-2014


    One of the last things she was caught on Camera with.....was her putting it to the MS Media over the way they reported about Israel and Hamas. Then she went in for this surgery.

    I think the things I admired about Joan Rivers other than she made me laugh were her work ethic, ability to overcome adversity in her life, her lack of political correctness and her ability to laugh at herself. She will be missed. But from the OP article, in her will she did not want any heroic measures to save her if she would not be able to do one hour of standup comedy and that she was not afraid of death. Rest in peace Joan Rivers.

    He's not alive but JR told the story that Buddy Hackett gave her good advice with, "If it's funny, it's not dirty".
