“I want to be wearing Valentino & Beyonce Hair at my Funeral” – Joan Rivers



Chicago White Sox v Boston Red SoxOh Joan Rivers. The world misses you so much already! Especially your unpredictable sense of humour.

As you may know, Joan passed away yesterday at age 81, in the aftermath of vocal cord surgery complications.

However, before she died, she knew exactly how she wanted her funeral to be: A showbiz affair where she would be glam in a Valentino gown and have her hair blowing in the wind just like Beyonce’s.

She made this known in her 2012 book titled “I Hate Everyone…Starting With Me.” Here are excerpts from the book as reported by US Weekly:

When I die (and yes, Melissa, that day will come; and yes, Melissa, everything’s in your name,)” Joan wrote, referencing her only child, daughter Melissa Rivers. “I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action.”

I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene!” she insisted. “I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don’t want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing ‘Mr. Lonely.’ I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce’s.” 

We bet Joan’s funeral will be a glam one.

    This woman is a diva even in death.

    *sigh* The last thing she said on the last episode of Fashion Police was to wish Robin Williams to rest in peace. She did not know she was next. May her hilarious soul rest in perfect peace.

    Wherever she is now, I suspect she doesn’t care about this anymore.

    Oh, what a woman! Very gorgeous and hilarious. When I told my hubby that she was 81 some months ago he.did not believe me until we both googled her profile on the internet. She was energetic and full of life despite her age. Ori e wa lorun e titi ojo iku. pace. Fashion can never be the same.
