‘She was always fun’

Burnett comments on the passing of Rivers:

I knew Joan for 50 years, and she was always fun, charming and sweet to be with, and funny as hell. She was also the poster child for the ‘Energizer Bunny!’ My love goes out to Melissa and Cooper. I am very sad today.

Tavis Smiley interview


Burnett discusses her late daughter, Carrie, and the book she wrote about their relationship, Carrie and Me: A Mother-Daughter Love Story, in this interview for PBS.

I just decided to write about us, and even from before she was born up through her little young years, and then when she was into drugs, briefly, when she was a teenager, what we went through with that, and then how she came out, got sober, when she came out of rehab, and then went on to have quite a career.
