Joan Rivers Will Be Buried Tomorrow With A Red Carpet: Daughter Melissa

Joan Rivers Will Be Buried Tomorrow With A Red Carpet According To Daughter Melissa

Joan Rivers passed away on Sept. 4 at the age of 81 years old after being taken off of life support by her daughter, Melissa Rivers, 46.

Joan’s funeral is scheduled for Sept. 7; the comedian and Fashion Police host once joked in her memoir I Hate Everyone… Starting With Me that she wanted a funeral fit for Hollywood:

β€œWhen I die (and yes, Melissa, that day will come; and yes, Melissa, everything’s in your name), I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action. I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way.

β€œI don’t want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing β€˜Mr. Lonely.’

β€œI want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing like Beyoncé’s.”

Melissa is determined to give Joan her final wish.
