Fashion Police: Special 2014 VMAs and Emmys Episode

In case you missed it, we had a special 90-minute episode of Fashion Police last night dedicated to the fashion turnout at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) on Sunday and the Emmy Awards on Monday. Our guest was the fabulous British music sensation Jessie J, who – just moments before performing the opening number with Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj – arrived on the VMAs red carpet in a stunning vintage Halston that I actually used to have in black. This was such a fun and fabulous special episode.

Love your interview with all the girls when you had Iris chacon on your show, all the host that had their on show that was girl power let this new generation learn from that.

  5. My prays are with Melissa and Mrs. Rivers wake up Cooper needs someone to medley in his love life. Plus I need your humor-It wouldn’t surprise me if you come out of this with 50 new jokes, Jewish/Hispanic novels, new book. God, guardian angels Mrs. Joan Rivers has a lot more positive things to teach her younger female fans on life-Cooper and Melissa still needs her. Love, D.M.

  10. Send you all good wishes for a very speedy and complete recovery.
    Looking forward to hearing your new jokes about this. Get well soon PLEASE!

  11. Dear outstanding one of a kind Joan! Friday
    My mother Eleonore (92) and I have been following you with great delight for many years – you were such an entertaining host of the red carpet on Oscar night! No one has even ever succeeded in replacing you for the TV viewer – we don’t even watch it without you now – it has become quite a bland show. You are ONE OF A KIND!

    Our prayers and well wishes are with you and will be with you constantly until you look up and smile at your beautiful and talented daughter Melissa.
    We will be looking forward to your future inimitable jokes on your black out and recovery.

    Huge bear hugs and love from New Zealand
    Charlotte and Eleonore

  12. Our Fabulous Jewish comedy Queen!! Our world needs your light, your humor! Please hang on we’re not prepared to let you go!! All my love and prayers for a quick and prosperous recovery!! xo

  13. Joan we know you are writing coma jokes in your sleep. We are waiting for the punch line that the doctors had to go for the good stuff to put you out, as genius requires more anesthesia. Spring back, chicken, and ‘Fashion Police’ the hospital gowns when you take your Joan Rangers seat on your set! Hurry to total recovery. I will temporarily become a Jew if that would help. Hugs and prayers!

  14. L = Lord pull her through this…
    A = A short break for Joan to recharge…
    U = US….We all enjoy the the humor!
    G = Get Well Soon!
    H = Healing hugs for a speedy recovery!

    To Melissa and Rivers family…May Joan rest and heal and come back stronger than
    EVER…My prayers are that you heal, wake up and continue to fill us all with laughter and leave us all with a smile on our faces.

  15. Fight girl! You are strong and have lots left to do in this world!! Can’t wait to hear your jokes about this! ☀️☀️☀️

  16. Dearest Joan, just to let you know how much you are loved by everyone in every age group. My 22 year old daughter called crying when she found out about your medical condition saying ” we need to pray for Joan”.

    You are loved by millions of people and you are still needed here on Earth.

    Love and many prayers for you and Melissa.

  17. Dearest Joan & Melissa, You are in our family’s thoughts and our prayers. You are receiving the best of care where you are; let’s say you are definitely staying at a “5 STAR HOTEL”! Perhaps Dr. Oz can swing by and pay you a visit? I know how much you dislike the thought of “RETIRING.” Perhaps, a less taxing schedule might be in order? I can’t wait until you are back on your feet, critiquing the hospital uniforms, the food, the UNcomfortable beds, etc! Maybe, if you are lucky, they will let you take one of their “Backless Gowns” home with you! I bet that Melissa can help to accessorize it!
    Humor aside, we are surely not alone with our wishes for a speedy recovery. May God be with you and your loved ones during this difficult time. May he bless all who are taking care of you, as well. We will look forward to hearing your unbeatable sense of humor, as soon as you are able. I am sending you a big hug!

  18. God Bless you and your family, Joan! I will be praying for your quick recovery!
    Thank you for standing up for Israel! You will be blessed for it!

  19. Dear Joan,
    I know that you are fighting hard to get well. You are such a strong and amazing woman and much loved by many!

  20. joan you have entertained my mom and i for so many years and made us laugh…we are sending lots of love…prayers..and holding you and your family in our thoughts…we are rooting for you to pull through…we love you!!!

  21. Come on Joan! If anyone has the will to get through this it’s you. The world is such an ugly, scary place right now and we need all the laughter we can get. Praying and sending love for you and your family. Get well soon.

  22. Keeping you close in our hearts dear, Joan. Praying for a ful recovery. Your a strong determined woman. Whatever you do, do not give up.. You can beat this. We love you.

  23. Keeping you close in our hearts dear Joan. Praying for a full recovery. You are a strong determined woman. You can beat this. Whatever you do, do not give up. We love you.

  24. Melissa and Cooper…..stay strong for your Mom and G-ma. Your strength will flow into her body and make Joan well again. Love and prayers.

  25. Hoping for a complete recovery – and a ton of new material – from,this health,crisis. Watch all of your specials but was surprised no mention,was made of Leah Dunham’s train wreck of a dress at the Emmy awards. THAT whole outfit was a disaster!!! If you ever want to look shorter and fatter (and who doesn’t?), call Leah Dunham’s stylist!Get well soon, Joan – TV needs you!

  26. Joan,
    I’m looking forward to you exiting the hospital and returning to the stage. You are a force bigger than what has tried to bring you down. You have been through worse. Melissa and Cooper need you to come home ASAP. You are loved and admired by millions.

    Cathy

Sending all my prayers, thoughts and wishing on all the stars for you to wake up and ask for your make-up, as only YOU can do it! Please don’t leave us NOW! You may design jewelry but you are a rare and precious JEWel — there is no one like you! Love and Hugs are on their way North from the DC Metro area (Northern VA) and I am asking my GUARDIAN ANGEL to fly up to NY and check on you and everyone taking care of you. I told HIM to stay as long as HE NEEDS TO == and as long as YOU NEED HIM. xoxoxo

  45. I have grown up with your brilliant and ground breaking comedy. Hard working, humble, pushing the boundaries always. Thank you for your example of refreshing innovation.

  46. I constantly look on my computer and the news on TV to hear all I can about Joan Rivers’ condition. She is a favorite star of mine. I don’t miss anything she is in, if I can help it. I, too, am 81 and I know she will get better because we are pretty strong ole gals. She was on the Talk and told them that her mother wanted to abort her…I was 12 years old. She has the delivery and I do not, but that was so funny. So, come on Joan get better and make Melissa, your grandson, your friends and family and the whole world happy. dx

  47. Hey Ms Rivers, I am from Australia and watch fashion police religiously because you are hilarious and make my day. Please don’t give up, we love you 🙂

  49. Many prayers for you,, feel you will be as good as new when you leave the hospital. I pray you well. Your daughter is doing really well, Hang in there Joan. dx

  50. Dear Joan, The Lord gives each of us a gift, and yours was to share the funny and serious, the truth of life with others, in spite of the hardships you went through personally in your life. You are a “Mensh”. And I am only a fan, but am very proud of you.
    If The Lord takes you homer, it is because you and your gifts are now needed somewhere else.
    God bless you. Melissa, be strong for yourself and.your son. You had a wonderful mother, past, present and future. We will miss the laughs she gave us

    RIP Lovely Joan

  57. Joan, I can’t believe you’ve gone. You will be so missed, you were the bridge and the continuum of the great celebrity. It seemed like the more time went by the more popular you became, how blessed that my daughter became a great fan and we shared many afternoons or evenings watching your shows. Melissa may you have peace that your mom didn’t suffer and went while her star was still rising if that even was possible…….

    God Bless Till We Meet Again

  58. So vey sad. Melissa has lost her beloved mother, Cooper has lost his georgeous grandmother, the world has lost the ultimate comedienne , I have lost my hero . My deepest sympathy to Melissa and Cooper and Joan’s extended family .

  59. Joan I have followed you for 30 yrs. Loved all of your shows, standup Emmy, Oscar, Fashion Police You just kept going. You were great on that red carpet. The last reality shows were fun to watch with your daughter and grandson.You left on top. What a work ethic and that style. Will miss you. Going to watch all your old stuff again. E is doing a great tribute for you. Now Up in heaven with your husband, family and all the greats.

  60. I really have grown up watching you, Ms. Rivers…when you guest hosted for Johnny Carson I loved to stay up and watch you. I remember the problems and when Edgar passed….you stayed strong. You kept moving and working. You showed us by example how to keep getting back up and reinventing yourself….and how to laugh at this insane thing called LIFE. I’ve said to myself a number of times: Boy look at Joan go….she never quits. Honestly, these lessons have served me well. You are a comedic genius, but more than that…a savvy and smart business woman, a caring humanitarian….and most of all a loving amazing Mother to Melissa. Really…I’ve watched it all…and love you Dearly. My personal thank you. Rest In Peace.

  61. There will never be another Joan Rivers. A true icon. I am so sad she is no longer with us. Underneath all that brash humor and sarcasm, a dear woman with a heart of gold.

  62. My husband and I had the opportunity a few years back to see Joan at her best on stage at Thunder Valley and what a show, we will never forget you and the great time we had. I know you will make everyone laugh again up above. May you rest in heaven with all the diva angels.
    You will be sorely missed.

    Phyllis

  63. I’m going to miss you very much. My prayers are with your family. I used to watch Fashion Police here in Peru. You were incredibly funny and witty.

  64. It’s a pity that we can’t see your videos in the Netherlands…. the note says: The owner, who uploaded this video has it not been made available in your country.

  65. Deepest condolences to Melissa and son Cooper. I KNOW with certainty she is in a much better place and we will be with her again. Heaven has gained the best comedian, a wonderful, truly special person all around.

  66. Joean thanks for the laughs you gave us for so many years. I never missed any episody of your reality show . I were an inspiration for me.
    R.I.P. beautiful lady.

  67. Ms. Rivers was an absolute genius. My heart goes out to Melissa and her mom’s extended surviving relatives — in a way, all of us she leaves behind. Oh sure, she had a potty mouth, so what. But, her brilliance was elevating issues relative to both sides of any political aisle that, if left unarticulated, can do more harm than good. That thing called political correctness can really snuff the human spirit, ugh. In my opinion, Ms. Rivers did so, so, so much good for even social conservatives, encouraging people from all walks of life to rise above p.c. oppression, whatever cause that gets thuggish. To stand up against censorship. Additionally, homeless or not, women have the right to go through life without wearing garbage bags, you know it. One can find a Joan Rivers necklace at thrift shop for, like, $5, hooray! You know it, you celebrities out there. Notions of beauty — more like “What a deal”! And, those occasional Goodwill comedy tapes of Ms. Rivers doing her thing? It helped at least one survivor. Oh thank you, Joan. Thank you, you wonderful big mouth soul, you. You will be missed.

  68. Curtains are down for Joan River but you will always remain in our hart you have been making me laugh since the 70″. my sympathies for Melis
    a. R.I.P.

  69. Joan while you are in heaven we will lift up Cooper and Melissa to be prayed for all there days here untill it is time for you to meet again. God puts all the puzzel pieces together for his children. Amen Amen

  70. In England here, we didn’t get to see you often enough, but when we did, i loved your witty sense of humour, and that you had the balls to say the things we all wish we could….. Rest in peace my friend. God bless you …xxx

  71. I absolutely loved Joan Rivers from the moment I saw her on Johnny Carson, Joan was a genius just like Robin Williams, and they brought so much healing laughter to any one who was able to watch, listen, and hear what they were actually saying and trying to convey to any one who encountered them. I love it, I think it was wonderful. They are both going to be dearly missed here on the third rock from the sun, I have faith that Melissa and Cooper will be fine in a short while, and the empire will start moving once more. RIP COMEDY QUEEN JOAN RIVERS ! Thank you Joan for everything you gave us, and taught us. Love you, Thanks again.

  72. Rest In Peace, beautiful lady! I will miss you greatly. I am so glad that there are so many taped shows. I will see you on the other side. Love you!

  73. Its so hard to bare the knowledge that you are gone. You were not done here. I cant stop crying. you lifted us up when we were done. you made us laugh watching you in concert, and on the Q. you are one of a kind. No one will ever replace you.
    Joan, Love you, mean it!

  74. Joan,
    Loved you for so many years! In the 80’s I was flying back and forth to Vegas just to see you onstage. I was going through a divorce and just seeing you lifted my spirits and you made me laugh! laugh! laugh! Just what I needed. Thank you so much! What a wonderful bitch!

  75. To Mellissa and her son Cooper. I lost two brothers 40 days apart and
    a Beloved Aunt Be just three weeks before they died. Then my Father
    and mother a few months after my brothers died. All in the year of 1999
    and early 2000. I kept myself busy and worked worked trying to keep
    my life from falling into black-hole. An church was my savior. You were
    lucky to have so many friends and a lovely son. I have no one. NO
    sister or Aunt or cousin’s to lean on…..Kept a upper lip. Be Brave.
    Love in the Friends your so lucky to have…..Sincerely I prayed my
    Rosary for all those who need them and add you to my list.
    Sincerely Marilyn L. Carbon Cliff Illinois
