Guess Who Joan Rivers BANNED From Her Funeral? (3 People)


Comedy legend Joan Rivers’ funeral, which was held on Sunday, was attended by stars including Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Osbourne, and Sarah Jessica Parker.

But, as The Sunday Times Magazine reported, just weeks before she died, Rivers listed 3 celebrities who were not to attend her funeral: First Lady Michelle Obama, whom she called a transvestite (video below). In addition, former talk show host Chelsea Handler and pop Singer Adele were banned. She called Adele “fat” and Handler a “drunk.”

In that interview, Rivers talked about helping her daughter come to terms with the fact that she would ultimately die.

“Melissa says, ‘I don’t want to hear about it, I don’t want to talk about it,’ but I say it’s coming. It’s inevitable. It’s no longer an abstract thing. It’s like, God, I’m in my eighties,” she said. “Nobody, when I die, is going to say, ‘How young?’ They’re going to say, ‘She had a great ride.’”

Rivers’ brass and irreverent humor will be missed. Even though she was crude, she had class… Unlike Michelle Obama.
