Joan Rivers Injects Daughter
February 9, 2012 by staff
Joan Rivers Injects Daughter, Getting along with your mother well enough to live with her is one thing. But trusting her to inject you with a needle is another – especially when that matriarchal figure just so happens to be Joan Rivers.
The comedienne, who refuses to let her 78 years dictate when she should resign from showbiz, was forced to give Melissa the drug after boyfriend Jason Zimmerman walked out last September.
Ever the joker, Joan has made light of the situation on Twitter: ‘It was so hard for me to give Melissa her fertility drug injection after Jason walked out! It’s a good thing I never became a junkie. #JKB’
Despite the drama unfolding at the end of last year, the Rivers duo are in the spotlight again with the second series of Joan And Melissa: Joan Knows Best? premiering in the US last month.
During the latest episode, New Yorker Joan can be seen embracing her motherly duties by stepping in for Jason and jabbing Melissa with the needle – but of course, practising on a trusty orange first.
Melissa, 44, called time on the romance with her long-term and live-in boyfriend after she discovered he had made several appearances on an adult website.
At the time she said: ‘I am still trying to process what has come to light over the past few days and I hope that you will respect the privacy of my son and I while we heal.
‘Luckily, we are Rivers and always bounce back! Thanks to all my supportive fans, friends, and co-workers for their love and support which is carrying us through.’
During the episode, he is seen yelling: ‘You know how much I care about this family.
‘The fact that I sit there and give you shots, the fact that I’m busting my a** out there, the fact that you have the audacity to bust my b***s about going to a meeting!’
He then makes a shocking parting statement against Melissa’s father, Edgar Rosenberg, who committed suicide in 1987, adding: ‘I’m not your f****ing father. I’m not going to end up like him!’
