Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? Melissa’s Blog

January 29, 2011 09:00 AM by Veronica Dudo

Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? premiered this week on We TV. The reality television series follows the lives of Joan and Melissa Rivers. The mother-daughter duo has worked together before, but this time they’re working and living together. Read Melissa’s blog to find out how she really feels!Melissa’s Blog-The Experiment Begins…

Having my Mom come and stay with me and Cooper in Los Angeles sounded like a dream come true. Well, maybe “dream” isn’t the exact technical term I’m looking for. What’s that other psychic phenomenon that takes place in your mind while you’re sleeping? Oh, yeah…nightmare. Then again, how bad could it be?

She said she’d only be here for a week or two. Plus, it’s not as if my Mother has ever tried to run my life or anything, other than from the exact instant she gave birth to me up until this very second. But like I always say, when life gives you lemons fill up a burlap bag with them and use it to beat people because it doesn’t leave a mark– or something like that, I forget!

Anyhoo, what I was really looking forward to was being able to say to my Mom, “As long as you live under my roof, you live by my rules.”Yes, looking back over my teen-aged years I knew that part was going to be sweet, very sweet. But there was one thing I was worried about. I had been keeping a little something a secret from my Mom — or maybe I should say a big something — and if she came to stay with us I knew that she’d probably find out about it sooner or later. So I decided to tell her about it, but in my own time. Good thing Mom’s not nosy…

    Hi Joan and Melissa:

    I recorded the show and just watched it. I am still laughing. I love it. Can’t wait for the next episode. The chemistry between Joan and Melissa is incredible and Cooper is delightful. I do not watch any other reality shows except Dancing with the Stars, but I am sure going to watch this one. Good luck to you both.

    Dear Melissa,
    You poor woman. For God’s sake grow a pair! Watching your life go down the tubes is like watching a trainwreck. You know it’s horrible but you somehow can’t look away! Makes me glad that I have not spoken to my “Mother From Hell” in at least 20 years. Put the dottering old medling Fart in a home where she can boss everyone else around. Makes me glad that I am an orphan.

    Continue to do what is right for you, your love Jason, and your lovely child. He has wonderful manners and he did not get them from his Grandfreak. You seem to be a very nice woman and you’re fine without all the stress. Put your mothen in a burlap sack and ship her out of your home before it’s too late.

    I love you show–so funny and entertaining. In your first show Joan is looking for a plastics doc for her arms. My best friend, Kathie, just had her arms(among other things) done last month in Beverly Hills and they look fabulous. Let me know if you need his name..

    Erin Thomsen-Griggs: Honey, the cream bag that Melissa is carrying is her mother! Tonight’s show was better, but that poor sweet little boy is going to be scarred for life! Actually what Joan did with her best friend’s ashes is exactly what I did with my Uncle Lester’s. We (6 gay guys and myself) went to a lovely spot on Narragansett Bay in Rhode Island and scattered his ashes (also illegal)followed by each of us tossing a white rose over the ashes as they went out to sea. Then we went to a great bar and told Lester stories. HE would have loved it. I think what Crazy Joan said is true, grieve in your own way.
