  • Joan Alexandra Molinsky, known by her stage name Joan Rivers, is an American actress, comedian, writer, producer and television host, best known for co-hosting the E! celebrity fashion show Fashion Police and starring in the reality series Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?, alongside her daughter Melissa Rivers. Rivers first came to prominence in 1965 as a guest on The Tonight Show, the first of the late-night chat programs with interviews and comedy, pioneered by Johnny Carson, whom she acknowledges as her mentor. The show established her particular comic style, poking fun at celebrities, but also at herself, often joking about her extensive plastic surgery. When she launched a rival program, The Late Show, he never spoke to her again. She went on to host a successful daytime slot, The Joan Rivers Show, which won her a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Talk Show Host. However, her insulting style has sometimes been criticized as controversial by the media, when discussing sensitive or personal matters. She is also the author of 12 best-selling memoir and humor books, as well as providing comic material for stage and television. [undefined]
