Joan Rivers' Celebrity Business

Forbes - Joan Rivers was not “a piece of work” when I interviewed her recently. In fact, she was extremely thoughtful, gracious, and thankful. While Joan is known for her work as an actress, comedian, and Celebrity Apprentice winner, she is also a businesswoman. In addition to her show business career, she is active in managing other businesses as well, including her jewelry line which has been on QVC for about 21 years and has been profitable since its inception. She told me her jewelry business is the most important business in her life.

“Show biz is my life. But one year you are up one year you are down, one year you are hot, one year you are cold. But, jewelry is my annuity.”

She currently spends a disproportionate amount of time managing this jewelry business, but is constantly looking for other ways to stay busy working on other projects.

“We have a new show called Mother Knows Best, which is a reality show that we will start shooting in June or July. Thank GOD, I’m always working.”

Finding work later in life hasn’t always been easy for the 77-year old actress who chronicles her experiences in the documentary, Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work. Often she feels people underestimate the amount of preparation and time it takes to creating jokes and comedic routines. To keep her routines fresh and organized, Joan has an intricate filing system with all her jokes over the last 30 years. Each time she tells a joke she has it printed on an index card and then files it away. She often returns to this elaborate card catalog to write notes on the cards with jokes that did well or poorly with audiences, and also to get new ideas on certain themes.
