Joan Rivers interview

24 May, 2009

The Guardian interviews Rivers about her love of being famous.

It makes the whole world your home town. When my husband committed suicide [Rivers’s second husband, the film producer Edgar Rosenberg, overdosed on prescription drugs in 1987] I went to New York and a man collecting the garbage would say: “Hey Joanie! You’ll get through this.” People in the grocery store would say: “I lit a candle for you last night.” I thought: “My God, the whole city cares.” People can be a great comfort.
