Melissa on Joan’s Favorite Things

News about Joan’s New York apartment going on the market has been all over the media. In a recent article in The Wall Street Journal, Melissa talks about her reasons for selling it and about five of her mother’s favorite things in the apartment, including where they came from and what they meant.

About the stool pictured above, Melissa says:

“Mom always sat on this baroque-style foot stool in the library when she was on the phone or in meetings. Sitting on the stool was her way of strengthening her posture, which was extremely important to her. Half my life I was told not to slouch. Mom, on the other hand, could fall asleep sitting.”

Melissa Rivers Statement re: Lawsuit Filing

“Filing this lawsuit was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make. What ultimately guided me was my unwavering belief that no family should ever have to go through what my mother, Cooper and I have been through. The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible. Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better. It is my goal to make sure that this kind of horrific medical treatment never happens to anyone again.”
