Joan Rivers Requested All These Things For Her Funeral — And It's Just As Wonderfully Outrageous As You'd Expect!

joan rivers funeral requests book i hate everyone starting with me

For Joan Rivers, no topic was off-limits– even her own passing.

In her book I Hate Everyone… Starting With Me, the legendary comedian explained in hilarious detail exactly what she wanted for her funeral.

Here is how Joan wrote that she wants to be honored:

"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!

I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don't want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing Mr. Lonely.

I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyoncé's."

Pure Joan.

    What a legend…
    I always see a funeral as a way to celebrate someones life, rather than mourn their death.

    Seriously.. Only air headed morons with no real view on the world would miss this woman. She was a terrible human, The world will remember her as a fake no one with an incredible lack of self esteem. Her zionist views belong in 1930 and i'm glad she's dead.

    She was a total bitch, and a legend. She will be missed by lots.

    81 though? Good for her, I hope to live that long and be as coherent as her.
