Joan Rivers’ Last Interview [WATCH VIDEO]

Joan Rivers had her last interview to promote her book “Diary of a Mad Diva” with People Magazine editorial director Jess Cagle on Aug. 27, 2014. It happened about 12 hours before she went in for a medical procedure during which she stopped breathing and died of cardiac arrest.

According to People, she was there to promote “Diary of a Mad Diva.” During the launch of her joke book she also took the time to talk about fashion her beloved topic. Read on to learn more about Movie News Guide’s (MNG) report about the Joan Rivers’ last interview.


A note at the beginning of Rivers’ book, “Diary of a Mad Diva,” reads:  “Miss Rivers wrote this diary as a comedic tome, not unlike Saving Private Ryan or The Bell Jar…Anyone who takes anything seriously in this book is an idiot.”

It was a jovial, cluttered collection of 300 pages of jokes about celebrities, beginning with a excerpt from a book entitled “Thank You and You’re Welcome,” by Kanye West during the launch of this book he proudly proclaimed to be a non-reader of books, to which Rivers’s dedication on the next page read in retort: “This book be dedicated to Kanye West, because he’ll never fuckin’ read it.”

Kristen Stewart even threatened to take legal action against Rivers after she wrote: “Many stars only do one thing well. The best one-trick-pony is Kristen Stewart, who got a whole career by being able to juggle a director’s balls.”

Rivers was doing what she loved most i.e. working. She had a brilliant job on of her E! show Fashion Police focusing on the sartorial accomplishments and failures of the VMA and Emmy Awards ceremonies.

As the awe-inspiring, 2010 documentary about her life entitled  “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work,”  indisputably made clear that she worked inexorably because she was scared about what not working means: not being relevant. Although she didn’t long for eminence yet her desire for recognition, and having a voice made her what we would call one -of –a- kind.

Joan Rivers was a noble woman as she was hilarious. She invented the contemporary red carpet interviews. She used to disembowel any artist who made a mistake on the red carpet. She was bestowed with innate art and craft.  Click here to watch the Joan Rivers’ last interview.
