They welcomed us to join the camera party and once we started rolling, it was WE shooting us shooting them-Melissa and Joan working it for us all with the utmost professionalism. The comedienne had us weeping with laughter as she took us through her upscale collection of designer-studded collectibles. Divided between her daughter’s supply closet, home gym, and guest bedroom, every single solitary item was labeled to commemorate where she wore it, with Ziploc-ed accessories dangling from each hanger. Meanwhile, as her mother donned a caftan flecked with every color of the rainbow, the younger Rivers kept it classic in black, ever the straight-woman.

After hours of shooting for two crews, there was no eye-rolling, no smart-lipping, no nothing but love between the women. It was a beautiful thing to see in person, and a little ironic considering the women are known for their brutally frank commentary.
