Joan Rivers once wrote to her daughter: “When I die (and, yes, Melissa, that day will come; and, yes, Melissa, everything’s in your name), I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action….I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene!
It looks like Joan’s final wish has come true as a plethora of a-list-ish stars are at this moment attending her service.
Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kelly Osbourne, Barbara Walters and Kathy Griffin were among a raft of A-list stars who attended the comedian’s funeral today at the Temple Emanu-El, along with her daughter Melissa and other family, friends and colleagues.
Today’s funeral service is private, but close friend Cindy Adams wrote in Sunday’s New York Post that it would include performances by the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus, Audra McDonald and Hugh Jackman.
Joan revealed her ideal funeral plan in her 2012 book, “I Hate Everyone … Starting With Me.”
