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

January 31, 2011 02:00 PM by Veronica Dudo

Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? premiered last 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 Joan’s blog to find out how she really feels about moving in with Melissa.Joan’s Blog: West Coast Bound

I had reached the point in my life when it was time to move to Los Angeles. My daughter was living her life there, and my grandson was growing up there without me around to see it. Plus I was spending a fortune on plane fare going back and forth to my LA plastic surgeons. Yes, it was time. So I packed up my homes in New York and Connecticut, gave my dog Lola an extra Dramamine (six), threw her in a carry-on bag, and headed for the airport. Was I scared? Nervous? Unsure if I was making the right decision? You bet I was. But I was also looking forward to going through airport security. Those big, strong men and women, but mostly men, conducting the pre-flight security pat-downs with their big, strong yet gentle hands, and, yes, their knowing touch make air travel safer for all of us, and I appreciate their efforts. So much so that I often go through the security checkpoint at JFK two or three times, just to be on the safe side–especially if a certain Manuel happens to be on duty. But at least I wasn’t traveling alone. I had my Lola with me, passed out in the carry-on bag, and I also had my husband Edgar and my best friend Tommy with me, which wasn’t easy as they are both deceased. How did I manage that? Now, there’s a story…

    I wasn’t expecting to laugh so much or so hard watching your new show. Really enjoying it. Your grandson is gorgeous and seems to be a lovely boy. One thing I did not like, although I can see it being funny to some people, was looking for Edgar’s ashes and then remembering they were under Melissa’s bed. It just seemed disrespectful. That’s my only criticism. Otherwise, good luck with the show!

    Hey, Joan and Melissa;

    I really am enjoying your show.
    I too come from a very small family. I was very close to my mother who I lost 5 years ago.(Father 6 years ago) The pain does not ever leave.
    Just like you, my mother and I were “Best Friends”.

    Celebrity and t.v. show aside, all I can say is I hope you two are having a blast. Enjoy all of these precious and sometimes frustrating moments together. They are all worth more than any money can buy.
    Thank you for bringing me back to some of the good memories I shared with my own mother.
    Love and Best Wishes to you both always.

    Your friend unmet,
    Lynn

    Saw two shows (didn’t want to judge on only one episode) I used to respect Joan Rivers. If this show is anywhere close to a depiction of their actual relationship and how Joan really treats Melissa, I only have sympathy for Melissa now. Joan has NO filter at all. Melissa is correct when she says Joan doesn’t listen to anyone but Joan. “A mothers job is to tell you you’re wrong” …. really? How about support? Encouragement? Respect? Acknowledgment? Guidance? My parents would NEVER have spoken to any of their children like that. I would not even consider ripping apart my children like that. It is incredibly sad that a woman with so many career accomplishment that has brought humor to so many people could be so oblivious of her own daughters ability’s, wishes, choices, boundaries and decisions.
    I was so hoping this show would be a vision of two amazing women. I was sorely disappointed.
