Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? premiered on WE tv featuring the mother-daughter duo. Legendary comedian Joan Rivers is leaving the East Coast to be closer to her family on the West Coast–her daughter Melissa Rivers and grandson Cooper. Keep reading to find out what happened!

After making the life altering decision to leave her New York lifestyle, Joan decides to tell her closest friends at a party in her Connecticut estate that she’s making the big move. They are very shocked and share the same sentiment that Joan’s house staff and Melissa’s friends believe–the two will be constantly agreeing to disagree. Melissa decides to send her friend Lynne out to help Joan pack up her stuff.


While Joan’s deciding what she needs, she realizes she can’t find the ashes of her late husband, Edgar. After looking everywhere in the house Joan remembers she put Edgar’s ashes under Melissa’s bed so he would be close to his daughter. While packing, Joan reminisces that she hasn’t lived in Los Angeles since 1989.

Meanwhile on the West Coast, Melissa still hasn’t told her boyfriend Jason that Joan is moving in with the family. She decides to tell him while they’re doing yoga and he too thinks the mother-daughter duo will be at odds. When Joan arrives, it’s in her true comedic nature pushing all of her bags out of the airport.

First up, Joan decides to take her grandson to beach so they can start to make memories together. While on the beach, Cooper’s nanny from Sweden takes off her bikini top and asks Joan to help her put sun tan lotion on to which Joan is very unhappy about. She said she doesn’t believe that the nanny should act like that. After Cooper’s boogie board breaks at the beach, Joan takes Cooper to buy a new one but instead he wants a surf board. Joan knows Melissa might not be happy with the purchase however she decides to buy Cooper the surf board. Joan says it’s her job to spoil Cooper.


When Melissa finds out Joan bought the surf board for Cooper she isn’t happy but she is more upset that Joan told Cooper not to tell his mom. Joan uses the opportunity to confront Melissa about whether or not Jason is living with her and Cooper. Melissa tells Joan that Jason is living with her and Joan asks Jason what his intentions are to which Jason replies, he and Melissa want to stay together forever.
