Eternal QVC jewelry queen Joan Rivers is a co-host of the show. Of course, she and her fellow “Joan Rangers” were dissecting the fashions that the music world’s top stars wore to the awards show in Brooklyn Sunday night.

Hip hop artist Big Sean, who we had never heard of, had attended the VMAs and flew to LA from New York City to appear on “Fashion Police.” During the show he mentioned that he was designing a fashion collection that was reasonably priced, with many items under $100.

Rivers piped up and said words to the effect of, “Oh, like QVC.”

That prompted Big Sean to say that his mother was a QVC and Rivers’ fan, and that she had told him to tell Joan that she had bought a load of earrings from the comedian’s fashion jewelry collection.

So even rappers, and there moms, know about and love QVC.

QVC Queen Joan Rivers Isn’t Sorry For Holocaust Joke

March 5, 2013

Here’s an update on QVC jewelry queen Joan Rivers, dame of the far-mouthed nasty Holocaust and Adele fat jokes. In numerous interviews, Rivers has defended herself and refused to apologize for her recent controversial remarks.

In case you’ve been living in a cave, Rivers sparked outrage with her post-Oscar “Fashion Police” show on E! Entertainment Television. Talking about Heidi Klum’s daring attire at the Oscars, Rivers quipped, “The last time a German looked this hot was when they were pushing Jews into the ovens.”

Then on “Late Night With David Letterman,” Rivers made fun of Adele’s weight. The singer performed what turned out to be the Oscar-winning song,”Skyfall,” during the Oscar telecast.

Last week Rivers, who is Jewish, appeared on on HLN’s “Showbiz Tonight” and defended her Klum comment, according to Radar Online.

“It’s a joke, No. 1,” Rivers told host A.J. Hammer. “No. 2. it is about the Holocaust. This is the way I remind people about the Holocaust. I do it through humor. My husband (Edgar Rosenberg, who committed suicide) lost his entire family at Auschwitz, so let’s just start with that. Your generation didn’t know what I’m talking about, and by me doing a joke, it gets people talking and thinking. It didn’t bother Heidi… doesn’t bother me.”

Then in the New York Post gossip column, Page Six, on Monday Rivers again defended her Holocaust joke.

“If you want nice, go on Christian Singles and marry someone,” she told the Post.

QVC Jewelry Queen Joan Rivers’ New Reality Show Debuts In An Hour On WE

January 26, 2011

No one can accuse QVC jewelry queen Joan Rivers of being lazy, just crazy.

The documentary about her, “A Piece of Work,” showed the world that she is a workaholic. And in that vein, comedian Rivers is doing a new reality show with her annoying daughter Melissa. “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?,” that debuts in about an hour, at 9 p.m., on WE.

This work is on top of Rivers’ show on E!, “Fashion Police,” shepherding her QVC jewelry line, doing stand-up appearances and — news to us — making an infomercial for Great Hair Day, a product that covers up female baldness.

The reviews for “Joan Knows Best?” were mixed, but usually brutal TV critic Alessandra Stanley cut Rivers some slack in her review today.

QVC’s Joan Rivers Skewers Her Own Red Carpet Disasters In Us Weekly

March 10, 2010

QVC vendor Joan Rivers is all over the media this week, fallout from her Oscar “Fashion Police” commentary on E! Entertainment Television.

First, it was a profile in the Sunday New York Times. Now, Us Weekly has done a piece where Rivers rates her biggest fashion disasters. She’s as tough on herself as she is on anyone on the red carpet.

The comedian’s missteps include wearing a sleek black Vera Wang gown, and an eye patch, because she had a sty in her eye.

There’s also a nice shot of Rivers wearing a Pamela Dennis gown with a huge feather collar. “Looks like I was playing ring toss with an ostrich” Rivers tells Us Weekly.

Our favorite, however, is Rivers in a copper-colored puffy taffeta Oscar de la Renta cape. “Today, it’s Lady Gaga’s casual Friday outfit,” Rivers tells Us.

The national media is loving QVC.

First The Huffington Post wrote about QVC’s pre-Oscar party in L.A., and today The Sunday New York Times has a profile on the home shopping channel’s jewelry queen bee, Joan Rivers.

It’s a well written and amusing piece, pegged to the fact that Rivers will be doing a post-Oscar fashion post mortem for E! Entertainment Television’s “Fashion Police.”

But the story, headlined “Rivers Takes Aim At The Stars’ Wardrobe At the Oscars,” also talks about Rivers’ “eponymous jewelry line” for the home shopping channel

“That’s my annuity,” The Times quotes Rivers as saying.

“In 20 years, she has successfully hawked more than 20 million bijoux for over $800 million in sales,” The Times says, citing Rivers’ publicist as the source for those tidbits.

In the photo that accompanies the story, River is wearing one of her QVC necklaces. It’s her “Make A Statement” beaded necklace, which sells for $74. It comes in three colors, item number J149106.

The story also noted that the documentary “Joan Rivers — A Piece of Work” will be released in theaters in June. It premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, where it won critical acclaim.

QVC Jewelry Queen Joan Rivers Dishes To New York Post On Nicole Kidman, Lady Gaga

January 17, 2010

QVC jewelry queen Joan Rivers is in the news again, this time because she will be back on E! Entertainment Television Monday night doing a Golden Globes edition of “Fashion Police.”

Rivers, who was known for her cutting red-carpet commentary at E!, lost favor with the channel at one point, and landed at TV Guide Network. But now she’s back at E!, where she will be offering her blunt remarks on what the stars wear tonight at the Globes.

The New York Post Sunday published a Q&A with Rivers Sunday.

In the interview, Rivers sounds off on topics such as plastic surgery (an area she knows well), and gets in a nice shot at Nicole Kidman.

“Four years ago she showed up in a red dress with that white face,” Rivers told the Post. “She looked like a ketchup bottle.

Surprisingly, Rivers says she’s a fan of outrageous singer-performance artist Lady Gaga.

“I love her,” Rivers said.

We love Lady Gaga, too. Her “Bad Romance” song and video is our favorite.
