Melissa Rivers Makes Touching Public Address About Her Late Mom Joan Rivers

Melissa Rivers arrives at the The Hollywood Reporter’s Women In Entertainment Breakfast to give a special tribute to her late mother Joan Rivers at Milk Studios on Wednesday (December 10) in Los Angeles.

The 46-year-old television personality was joined at the event by her fellow E! family Maria Menounos, Giuliana Rancic, and Joel McHale.

“My mother was fearless,” Melissa said during a tribute to Joan. “She was willing to say what others were thinking. She thought of herself as a comic and had to be funnier than everyone else. She just wanted to do her job and that was to make people laugh.”

“If my mother were here this morning she would not only be grateful and proud but she would be beyond herself,” Melissa added. “On behalf of my mother, thank you so, so much for this wonderful honor.”
