Listen To One Of Joan Rivers’ Final Interviews, Never Heard Before
SiriusXM’s EW Radio has an interview with the late great Joan Rivers that was taped one month before her death in 2014, but was never aired.
“I knew my mother was so determined that something as mundane as dying wouldn’t shut her up,” Melissa Rivers, said of the interview. “If she tells me to stand up straight and brush my hair, I’m going to scream.”
Emmy Award-winning actor Dan Bucatinsky and Will & Grace co-creator Max Mutchnick, hosted the 20-plus-minute, never-before-heard interview delves into everything in Rivers’ illustrious life, from plastic surgery (“If it makes you feel good, absolutely!”) and hypocrisy (“Truth is not told often enough and that really is what my whole life has been about”) to skipping temple on Yom Kippur and learning her sense of fashion from her mother.
“Our whole approach [to the interview] was for it just to be a conversation where we just get to ask anything,” Dan told EW. “I don’t think that either of us imagined that we’d be on the phone for so long and that’d she’d be so warm, forthcoming, and genuine as she was.”
Entertainment Weekly Radio’s special with Joan Rivers will air on Thursday, February 15 at 6 p.m. ET on channel 105, on satellite radios, and on the SiriusXM app.
