Kathy & Larry On Joanie Comments (0)

Very interesting piece on Joan Rivers that views her work's cruelty (come on, you know it's true) through a feminist lens. I responded to it. I don't really have a lot of intellectual respect for any responses that go, Fuck her! She doesn't get Joan! Joan was fierce!-level replies. I do think there is a lot to unpack in Rivers's work, even if Rivers herself didn't enjoy delving into it on that level—CNN, much? But I also think that beyond looking at what humor means, which is fair, once you start acting as if humor is identical to serious debate, you run into trouble, as does the author of this thoughtful it not exactly rah-rah piece on Rivers. But it's a compelling read.

On a related note: Kathy Griffin says she wasn't considered for Craig Ferguson's late-night gig because they told me they weren't considering women, and she recalls Joan Rivers in this clip of her new interview with Larry King...

Doctor/Feelgood Comments (0)

Ariana-GrandeKorovin's patients include teen queen Ariana Grande, who was taking a B12 shot to the butt here.

Dr. Gwen Korovin has been IDed as the throat specialist who was in the room when Joan Rivers was undergoing her endoscopy. A report says Korovin took a selfie with Joan in the background during the procedure, and began a biopsy that led to Rivers vocal cords seizing, causing cardiac arrest. Rivers died a week later.

TMZ—so hated, yet so useful, no?—also brings to light photos that seem to contradict the story of Django Unchained actress Daniele Watts, who claims she was detained by police based on her race after making out with her boyfriend in his car. Photos seem to back up reports that she was having sex with him in the front seat of his car with the door wide open. The pictures show they were much heavier into their sesh than her story let on, though they do not definitively show the act. 

But come on, if you're doing this and are surprised the cops would ask for your ID, you're on drugs or extremely entitled. Bringing race into it diminishes the very real problem that too many black people have with being targeted by cops for no good reason other than suspicion of being black. She plays right into the doubters who think race is a non-issue in this country, and who routinely say black people are the ones hung up on it.

Getting Some PIECE OF WORK Done Comments (0)

Joan-RIvers

A special tribute screening of Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work has been organized for this Thursday. This is the only place you'll find Joan's longtime assistants Jocelyn Pickett and Graham Reed. Ricki Stern will conduct the talk back. Great opportunity for those not invited to the funeral to wallow in their grief and probably walk away smiling, perversely.
