Love Advice From Joan Rivers to Melissa – Part 2

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome to my blog!

*** Part 1 of this series appears in my May 23 blog post . ***

Love advice from Joan Rivers? You can just imagine!

Joan Rivers will always be at the top of my favorite entertainers list along with Don Rickles, I have spit out what I was drinking and doubled over in laughter with both of these comedians. No one else comes close. Now, Joan is gone. Before her time. It didn’t have to happen and it shouldn’t have happened. But it did.

I read “The Book of Joan” by Joan’s daughter, Melissa Rivers. Melissa’s writing style is a lot like her mother’s delivery. Punchy, pointed comments. No holds barred. Melissa is not as funny as her mother, but humorous nevertheless.

I always thought a celebrity’s private persona would be different from the public. Not the case with Joan Rivers. Can you imagine listening to her one-liners all day? Poor Melissa. That’s how she grew up. All day. Every day.

Exactly what kind of advice did Joan give Melissa, her only child, on dating and marriage?

Joan’s Gems – Part Two

  • Praise your husband, hang on his every word and then you can look at the huge diamond on your finger.
  • Make a man feel like he’s the best thing God had ever put on the planet, even better than Bergdorf or Saks.
  • Push buttons to make a man feel good about himself, and push more as needed.
  • Making a man’s life better may take a little work and a little craftiness, but it will earn you  large,  shiny necklaces afterwards.
  • Yes, you can buy your own shiny necklaces, but why should you?
  • Always wear high heels. They make your legs look better.
  • Before a man comes to the house to pick you up for a date, send flowers to yourself so when he walks into your house, he’d be jealous and say, “Who sent you those beautiful flowers?”
  • Don’t give it up too quickly. Joan believed that today’s women fucked it up for themselves. “They only stay virgins until homeroom.” In her day in high school they had boyfriends and girlfriends, not baby daddies and baby mamas. Now, they sext pictures of their junk. It’s not right.

So, what do you think? Anything you agree with? Disagree with? Let me know.
