Rivers


JOAN RIVERS At it again::::::::::::::::::::::



Television personality
Joan Rivers created a little mayhem
Tuesday at a Costco in Burbank,
chaining herself to a shopping cart
and shouting from a bullhorn
as part of a protest that also
happened to promote her new book.


Clad in chunky jewelry and oversized dark glasses,
Rivers went onto Costco’s property to denounce
the fact that the wholesale giant does not sell her book,

“I Hate Everyone … Starting With Me.”
Police officers were called to the scene
but no citations were issued.

Rivers ultimately left, but only after speaking
extensively with television reporters.
She said her book had been banned by the chain
because it has cuss words on the back cover.

“People should have the right to have the literature
they want,” the nasal-voiced comedienne told KTLA News.
“This is the beginning of Nazi Germany.”

Rivers had her own film crew in tow for her protest,
said Burbank city spokesman Drew Sugars.
"She had a whole entourage,"
Sugars told The Times. "Sounds like a staged media event."
Rivers made no mention of her protest
on her Twitter account, instead sending tweets
about the stretch bangle bracelets and the QVC
shopping network. But she did tell KTLA she
wasn't entirely satisfied with her publicity stunt.

"They kicked me out without giving me any free samples,”
she told the station.

Then there was the interview with

The New York Times Book review:::

Question:
Of all the books you’ve written,

which is your favorite?
Any you wish you’d never written at all?
I’m very proud of my first book,

“Enter Talking.”

It really tells of my struggle to

make it in the business,
and I think somewhere in there is

a good lesson for all young
actors/comedians, which is,
Just keep goingAnd of course,
my latest book,
“I Hate Everyone . . Starting With Me,”
is my true favorite.
What am I, crazy?

This is The New York Times. . ,. .








I'm not going to plug my book?

Please! The book I wish I’d never written is
“Joan Rivers’s Pop-Up Guide to Gynecology.”
She is still funny.
