RIP: Joan Rivers

Joan Rivers

Dear Joan Rivers, Where do I even begin? I've been dreading writing this letter to you, yet I knew this day would come, as it comes for all of us eventually. I always swore when your number was up, I would lose my mind–which is happening but I'm trying to keep myself from becoming completely unglued because that would be a mess you certainly wouldn't want to clean up!

Lovey dovey relationships. TMZ MORE
