Joan and Melissa Rivers had one of the most celebrated mother-daughter relationships of all time. An Ivy League graduate, single mother of a teenage son, author, television producer and philanthropist, what was it really like to grow up with comedy legend Joan Rivers as your mother? If you think Joan said some outrageous things to her audiences as a comedian, you won’t believe what she said and did in private. Her love for her daughter knew no bounds—or boundaries. Melissa Rivers discusses her mother and her new book, The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief, and Manipulation, with Hoda Kotb. She shares funny, and poignant observations and stories about the blond force of nature who raised her and who she called Mom.
