Jewelry Queen Joan Rivers Said ‘QVC Is Holy Work’

QVC Queen Joan Rivers got a fine final send-off from her friends Sunday, including a large contingent from West Chester, Pa.

Home shopping host Lisa Robertson posted a photo on Facebook of her and QVC colleagues Rick Domeier, Mary Beth Roe, Jane Treacy, Jill Bauer and alum Kathy Levine at Rivers’ Manhattan service, where they rubbed shoulders with the like of Howard Stern and Hugh Jackman.

But for you QVC addicts, our favorite tidbit was a column that New York Post gossip columnist Cindy Adams wrote Sunday about Rivers, who was a close friend.

Here’s her kicker sbout the late and great, Joan:

And hawking jewelry on a home shopping network she considered religious: “Anybody buys from me, they’re sacred. QVC is holy work.”

She really loved you guys.

    For some reason I found this picture to not be appropriate. I saw it on Instagram and I thought- why are you smiling? You are at a funeral? I don’t know; it just struck me as out of place. I am glad that they got to honor Joan though! I am still saddened by her passing and can’t believe she is gone.

    I did not know Joan Rivers, but I do know that she made a living trying to make you laugh, or at the very least, smile. I would like to believe that she was up there looking down at her friends, smiling at them. I would also like to believe that if she had been with them, she would have been smiling, too. At funerals, I often see smiles. People who are grieving are so grateful for the smiling encouragement of their family and friends. It is an affirmation that one can get past this and smile again, too! Also, I have heard many eulogies that make you laugh, reminding us of the great times shared with the person being honored. A funeral should be a celebration of the honoree, and a comfort to those left behind. What better way to honor a comedienne than to smile?

    Nicely said, Trina Dade. And ditto comments about Miss Moss. It’s wonderful to be kept apprised of the doings of a world many of us follow closely. (And spend too much on!)
