Joan Rivers was extremely (and hilariously) clear about what she wanted at her funeral , and the comic legend recently explained to E! News exactly how she wanted to be remembered. In an interview earlier this year with Melanie Bromley, the Fashion Police host explained that she was solely focused on the present. “Enjoy me now. Van Gogh—poor son of a bitch—didn’t sell one painting in his lifetime and now it’s ‘Oh, it’s a Van Gogh!’ He doesn’t know! Who cares afterward?” “It is wonderful…Let me tell you what fame gives you. Such an opening. It gives you all those special perks. If anyone doesn’t get fame…Some of those people [that say], ‘Leave me alone.’ Are you out of your mind? I saw the King Tut exhibit—I didn’t have to wait nine hours. Fame is great. Rivers passed away Thursday morning after suffering complications from a throat procedure late last week.
