my therapist once told me that i have this obsession with seeking revenge… we’ll see about that
You not finding me attractive is not going to stop me from being attractive.
I SWEAR TO GOD IF YOU KEEP THIS MINDSET YOU WILL GET SOOO MUCH CONFIDENCE
I walked. I could do nothing but walk. And then, I saw me walking in front of myself.
The only me is me. Are you sure the only you is you?
a video that changed the nation
One of Rivers’ finest moments was an April 23, 1967 appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, where Rivers masterfully dissected the difference between being a single man and single woman in America. The clip below is almost 50 years old, but it’s just as hilarious — and true — today.
i doubt joan rivers’ll get the same kind of send off on the internet as robin williams did. and i can understand that, i honestly can. she could be nasty at times. downright offensive. she didn’t endear herself to many people.
but before you sit there and laugh about it, or you go on your merry way, try to understand that if joan rivers hadn’t paved the way for generations to follow, women in comedy (stand-up) would be nowhere. we’d have no ellen degeneris. no kathy griffin. no lisa lampanelli. no roseanne, no rosie, no reba, no mindy. she was a legend. one of the greats. she had the respect in a club that, before her, was so filled with drunken, lecherous, misogynistic men that no women would have dared break into the field.
but she was daring. and she was funny. genuinely, genuinely funny.
and the world just got a bit less funny.
