Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers died at 81 years old today. I'd like to say that I'm completely fine, because she was a celebrity and I never met her, but I'm not. I'm absolutely devastated.

Joan Rivers was a comedic and fashion icon, known most recently for the Fashion Police where no one was spared from her biting wit. While she may have been cruel at times, she was a true feminist, who paved the way for women in comedy today.  Her red carpet reviews left no one untouched. She voiced her opinions on everything from politics to fashion and did so bluntly and honestly.

Whether you loved her or hated her, Joan Rivers made a lasting impact with everything she did. I know I will dearly miss seeing her on the Fashion Police each week. My condolences to her family at this time.
