I hate Melissa Rivers

...with a passion.

So do I

by Can't STAND her. reply 102/09/2012

She lives off of her mother's fame and seems as nasty as her too.

by Can't STAND her. reply 202/09/2012

What makes her really ridiculous is that she thinks she DOESN'T live off of her mother.

by Can't STAND her. reply 302/09/2012

Really, R5? Do you think either of them cares as long as you keep watching their stupid ass show.

by Can't STAND her. reply 602/09/2012

Melissa bugged me until she did Celebrity Apprentice. I wouldn't say I'm a fan but I learned not to hate the sight of her face or the sound of her voice.

by Can't STAND her. reply 802/09/2012

R11, she would have found some other way to make money or some other profession or set of skills, as everyone in life does who needs to make money.

"She is the most insufferable thing ever to be forced on the American public with the possible exception of Willow and Jaden Smith."

You can say that again.

by Can't STAND her. reply 1402/09/2012

You must relish watching Melissa - you love to hate her - since most of us never see her at all.

by Can't STAND her. reply 1502/09/2012

If your mom was Joan Rivers, how do you think YOU would have turned out?

by Can't STAND her. reply 1602/09/2012

I actually find Melissa to be much more authentic than her mother. She seems to have a sense of propriety that Joan totally lacks. While the "show" seems entirely scripted and/or contrived, the two ladies are essentially playing themselves. Melissa seems like she's trying to be a good mother as well as a competent producer (of Fashion Police). Her fat ugly boyfriend apparently cheated on her and she's now dating some shlubby porn impresario. With her horse face, it's going to be tough for her to land a hot guy. However, her son Cooper remarkably inherited none of the Rosenberg a/k/a River horse-face look. He's either a carbon copy of his daddy or adopted. In any event, he's a cute kid and will likely grow into a handsome man.

by Can't STAND her. reply 1802/09/2012

Melissa's ex-husband, father of Cooper, is a very good looking guy.

by Can't STAND her. reply 1902/09/2012

R18 Fine, Melissa can be as authentic as she wants to be. That doesn't make her interesting or talented in the least. Get her off my television!

by Can't STAND her. reply 2002/09/2012

I´d love for anyone of you bitches to go through life as a child of a celeb, have your husband/father kill himself, and then see what kind of bond you have with your mother. I´m surprised their relationship is as healthy as it is.

by Can't STAND her. reply 2102/09/2012

In the Joan documentary I got a sense of what growing up with Joan as a mother was like. Joan Rivers is a brand and a family business, Melissa was taught at an early age that her role is to accomodate Joan because JR is a business. That is why MR is with JR all the time, she is part of JR's business brand.

by Can't STAND her. reply 2202/09/2012

Her son really is handsome.

by Can't STAND her. reply 2402/09/2012

based on r10's comment.. if she wasn't parasiting off her mother I'm sure she would have to put that horsemouth and wide lipped capacity to good use.

some people are only good for one thing..

by Can't STAND her. reply 2502/09/2012

Oh for christssakes, Melissa is harmless. She's fine, makes herself fairly scarce, and doesn't say anything offensive. She's not on drugs; she's never been in trouble. Her curse is being related to an extremely successful parent like many other show business kids. So she's not as successful as her mother. BFD.

Does her mother, Joan, support her? Yeah, she probably does. But Melissa also has her own income. She's executive producer of Fashion Police. That must bring in some income. Melissa probably has a pretty decent life raising her son.

by Can't STAND her. reply 2602/09/2012

I love the fact that her ex-husband was a horse trainer

by Can't STAND her. reply 2702/09/2012

Mellisa has always reminded me of a fug version of Kate Beckinsale, same long face, big mouth and huge teeth, but somehow that doesn't work for Melissa!

Melissa does have gorgeous hair and it's clear she's had some plastic surgery, a nose job definitely and probably some nips and tucks over the years.

Both her parents were not exactly attractive people, it's truly a miracle her young son is cute, thankfully he didn't inherit the Rosenberg/Rivers looks!

by Can't STAND her. reply 2902/10/2012

What is up with the cast of her reality show? Who the hell are those people?

by Can't STAND her. reply 3102/10/2012

"Man, if she's had work done I'd hate to see her before!"

Melissa definitely had a nose job. She looked like her father when she was a kid and he was not a looker!

There must be some pre-surgery photos of her online. I'm too tired to look!

by Can't STAND her. reply 3202/10/2012

Is today Opposite Day, R8?

by Can't STAND her. reply 3302/10/2012

Just on principle, I tend to be contemptuous of untalented celebrity spawn who leech off their famous parents. And admittedly, I've never seen the Joan/Melissa reality TV show or any of the other TV things they've done together. But I did see the Joan Rivers documentary and I thought that Melissa came as surprisingly shrewd, level-headed, and insightful.

So based on that, I'm not a hater. The girl seemed to have turned out pretty OK, especially given the heap o' crazy she was dealing with -- famous parents, showbiz lifestyle, neurotic obsessive (albeit loving) mom, dad who committed suicide. I'll cut her some slack, thank you.

by Can't STAND her. reply 3402/10/2012

What do you think Melissa's had done?

by Can't STAND her. reply 3602/10/2012

Just saw a Turbo Tax commercial starring Joan..........and Melissa. In it they're going through some woman's closet picking apart her wardrobe. What I'd like to know is, who gave Melissa the right to judge peoples' fashion?

by Can't STAND her. reply 3802/11/2012

"What do you think Melissa's had done?"

It's clear in the 1993 linked photo that Melissa already had her nose done. She actually looks like Melissa 'Shitbra' Gilbert in that 93 pic!

They must have gone to the same LA plastic surgeon for those cookie cutter nose jobs.

by Can't STAND her. reply 3902/11/2012

Hmmm....my guess is you don't actually know her (which by the way neither do I). how can you hate someone you've never met, who is a hardworking individual setting a wonderful example for her son? My guess is your JEALOUS!

by Can't STAND her. reply 4002/15/2012

Has anyone seen the grotesque TV movie where they play themselves in their own life story, Tears and Laughter: The Joan and Melissa Rivers story? Till I saw this I liked Joan and thought she kept it real, but this level of tacky was too much.

I wish it was on youtube and someone needs to throw it back in their face. Melissa is the worst.

by Can't STAND her. reply 4102/15/2012

R41 LMAO! Yes, I remember that shitty TV movie when it came out - I want to say like '91 or '92. It was SO self-indulgent.

by Can't STAND her. reply 4202/15/2012

Here's a link to a fabulous, bitchy tell-all interview by the former manager of Cher and Joan Rivers including a truly shocking incident involving Joan and Melissa on Celebrity Apprentice.

by Can't STAND her. reply 4402/20/2012

Not sure why she didn't inherit the humor gene- she is not funny at all. But maybe there is none; maybe you have to get that cynicism playing in dive clubs for years.

You Melissa haters will enjoy this interview with Mr Sammeth.

by Can't STAND her. reply 4602/21/2012

I love how Melissa says she wants her privacy during her breakup with Jason, yet she has the entire thing filmed and runs it on her awful reality show. I wonder if she'll do the same with the porn king she's supposedly dating now.

by Can't STAND her. reply 4702/21/2012

That interview only reinforced what I believed about Joan. She only respects money. She didn't like Melissa's boyfriend. He wasn't rich enough for her. When she was talking about him, she mentions he never picked up a check. That's what's important to her, not that he was a great father to her grandson. The Pornographer is rich, so he gets the respect.

by Can't STAND her. reply 4802/21/2012

He was trolling on Craigslist for sex.

by Can't STAND her. reply 4902/21/2012

Joan's only problem is she can dish it out but she can't take it. She was probably making Whitney drug jokes two minutes after they carried the corpse out of the building but no one dare criticize Melissa, who only has a career because she popped out of Joan's pussy.

by Can't STAND her. reply 5002/21/2012

R44 Wow, I already never did like or trust Joan or Melissa, but this interview shows they're even worse than I thought.

I'm not surprised about the Cher revelations either - the last several years her career has been a joke and it's been about money instead of quality.

On the call sheet on the mirror of "The Fashion Police" studio it said Joan arrives at 4:00am and then the Emmy show was taped around 7:00am. Why the Hell do they have to tape that show so early? What's the point?

by Can't STAND her. reply 5602/22/2012

R40 I wouldn't hate her if she wasn't forced down our throats 24/7. Like I said before, I love Joan and will watch anything she's in--but she INSISTS on bringing that talentless cling-on with her every chance she gets! I wish Joan would just get it through her head that her daughter is NOT cut out for television! Or radio. Or anything involving entertainment. Melissa is boring and should be working retail where she belongs. I can see her working at Target or Gymboree or TJ Maxx. At the very least she needs to say BEHIND the cameras. Once she puts herself on television, she's fair game for criticism.

And I LOVE that Daily Beast article!

Joan is about as funny now as George Burns was when he was 80...in other words, not very funny.

How much of that show is fake? The boyfriend was basically humiliated on national tv.

by Can't STAND her. reply 6102/24/2012

R61, that's like asking how much of Joan River's face is fake. It's safe to assume that 99% is fake. Besides, Joan and Melissa wouldn't know a real emotion if it slapped them in their faces, real or fake.

by Can't STAND her. reply 6202/24/2012

When Melissa changed her name and took her mother's stage surname, she really made it clear whose career she was riding on. After all, we don't have a singer named Liza Garland, do we?

by Can't STAND her. reply 6302/24/2012

I personally thought Melissa changed her last name because Rivers sounds less Jewish than Rosenberg. Of course, who knew she would be forever joined at the hip to her Yenta mama.

by Can't STAND her. reply 6402/24/2012

But everyone already knows that she's Jewish r64, so why change it for that reason?

by Can't STAND her. reply 6804/02/2013

I hated her more before I saw JOAN RIVERS: A PIECE OF WORK, which made it pretty clear neither Joan nor Melissa thinks Melissa is talented: they only do projects together because Joan feels she stinted Melissa on being there for her when melissa was a child and Joan is still an absolute workaholic, Joan feels the only way she can get to see enough of Melissa now is if they work together on projects.

the problem I always have with this, though, is there's no reason why Melissa can't work behind the scenes. but I think Melissa has finally realized the public is never going to accept her without her mother and is trying to do more of her work behind the scenes.

Melissa's not a bad person; she just has no business being in front of a camera.

I can't stand her either. She seems like a spoiled jerk. I know she can't help her face but man. Horse city.

And that stupid shocked shaking head look she gives when Joan says something "shocking" Uggggghh. And no I do not watch their show.

I love Joan but hate Melissa too. I do not watch their show because I can't stand Melissa and because it's totally fake. I watched them on Celebrity Apprentice (another show I normally never watch) out of pure curiosity. CA made me realize what a hard worker Joan is with a great work ethic, etc.

While it's sweet and somewhat admirable how Joan takes care of Melissa, I feel it's also a disservice to her because I'm not convinced that girl can function on her own without Joan. With any luck Melissa won't be able to get work after Joan dies and she'll just live a quiet life living off Joan's millions.

by Can't STAND her. reply 7704/04/2013

Joan Rivers and her husband were two people who should never have had a child. The fact that they chose to reproduce both their unfortunate looks ANC considerable neuroses only exposes how self-indulgent and narcissistic many straight people are. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.

by Can't STAND her. reply 7804/04/2013

I think Joan Rivers is a riot. One of the funniest comics in the business and outrageous in the Lenny Bruce mold.

Her daughter plays the straight "man". It's a schtick you knumbskulls. It's just couched in a show like Fashion Police. It's old as the hills, Vaudeville even.

Yeah she is no great talent- but her Mom sure is a ball of nearly 80 year old artificial fire and I think she is funny as hell.

I don't watch the show very much, but good God, it at least has a talent at its core and is funny- unlike the rest of reality TV which is appauling. And if you do not like Joan's brand of humor, well, don't watch her (and her daughter.)

I really think most of you have over reacted. I think her Mother has a lot of control over her as well as they are very close. Lots of parents who have businesses have their children involved. Joan just happens to be an entertainer. Melissa has a job and keeps reminding her Mom. She is an only child and I don't think she is spoiled in the way people are insinuating here. I think she is actually shy in certain ways. Her Mother is more of a steamroller type. Do you think all the actors who are kids of famous actors like Will Smith's son didn't get some help? They seem to be doing a lot of movies together. I don't think it is fair to judge someone you do not know. She is a pretty lady.

I think that hating a person you don't even know is a bit much but trying to turn her into a celebrity because of her mother's fame is totally ridiculous. Joan should be trying to find a separate venue that would explore her daughter's own talents rather than her mother's as a celebrity tagalong. Now she's joined Hollywood's endless list of reality TV's no talent celebrities like the Kardashian clan, Kelley Osborne, Tory Spelling etc.
