Can we talk? Remembering Joan Rivers

Last Reply by Leeny 1417046571.77 | in Joan Rivers Classics Collection, Jewelry Talk, Hosts & Personalities

Hi there, On the morning of August 28 as I was getting ready for work, Joan Rivers inexplicably popped into my mind. For some reason, I began wondering what the world—and QVC—would be like without the inimitable Joan. It wasn’t until an hour or so later while driving to work that I heard the news that Joan had been admitted to Mount Sinai Hospital after undergoing an endoscopy in a Manhattan clinic. Like the rest of the world, Joan was in my thoughts during the following week as news continued to come in about her condition. Just when it sounded like she was improving, he... Continue Reading
