That evening, Joe said to Ms. Rivers “I am doing you in my show just down the street, but of course I always do you respectfully”. To which Joan said “Joe, you can do me disrespectfully.” Both laughed, Joan kissed Joe on the cheek and left. Little did he know it would be their last visit.
Joe currently enjoys touring his new show “The Bitch is Back” with comic writer Tony Tripoli, Executive Producer of Fashion Police, and Joan’s former head comedy writer.
