As the world gives their last standing ovation to the Queen of red carpet comedy, media outlets have taken to publishing her travel rants.
Joan Alexandra Rosenberg, a.k.a Joan Rivers, passed away in her favoured city, New York, after her family switched off her life support.
The revered comedian and star of E!’s Fashion Police, suffered a heart attack during a routine surgery last week from which she didn’t recover.
While we all take time to remember the gaffs, snipes and laughs that Joan Rivers was famous for, Daily Mail published an article, written by Rivers herself, on her gripes with travelling.
First and foremost, according to the article, Rivers loathed flying on a private jet.
“When someone takes me on one, I’m always treated like a queen, but because I’m a guest it means that whoever owns the jet is a lot richer and more famous than I am,” she says.
And if that private jet goes down, the obituary in the New York Times will read: International Oil Magnate Sheik Abdullah Muckety Muck And Four Other (Poorer) People Die In Private Plane Crash.”
However, her digs at transport didn’t stop at the skies.
“Another thing I hate is the New York City subway system. They’re not trains, they’re urinals on wheels. And they’re dangerous. If I want to spend time locked up with a creepy, stinky perve, I’ll pay a conjugal visit to Phil Spector.”
Though, the red carpet queen doesn’t mind flying planes, which she did every week, while filming Fashion Police.
Her constant back and forth, between Los Angeles and New York, enabled her to write her book, “I hate Everyone…Starting With Me.”
Even if she found herself next to Russell Brand.
“He was a darling, a real gentleman. He is totally not what you see. We talked about marriage and comedy, and he carried my bag for me when we got off.”
Joan Rivers will always be a pioneer. She paved the way for a lot of comedians. I’m very sad she’s gone. pic.twitter.com/i1uE9fyHMh
