Joan Rivers Laid Out All Her Funeral Wishes Before She Passed Away

September 5, 2014 Meryl Streep, Valentino, Joan Rivers

Joan Alexandra Rosenberg, commonly known to the masses by her stage name Joan Rivers, was a world renowned comedian, known for her sass.

The actress, comedian and host’s death has come as a massive blow to fans, who felt devastated despite her being on life support since a few days.

But the Fashion Police host was prepared for death, as proved by the instructions she has left in her 2012 book, I Hate Everyone…Starting With Me. And let us say, her instructions are hilarious, something one would have expected ofher!

Despite being in mourning for the great loss, Melissa River’s revealed that her mother’s “greatest joy in life” was in making people laugh and her final wish would have been to “return to laughing soon.”

And we agree with the sentiment, after all why would Joan leave behind such hilarious funeral instructions, if not to lighten the mood? Without further ado, let’s get your mood uplifted, just what Joan would have wanted!

In her book she wrote, "When I die (and yes, Melissa, that day will come; and yes, Melissa, everything's in your name)…”

Forever the diva she wished her funeral to be made into an event. "I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action. I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way."

She didn’t want a rabbi or a eulogy; she had a hilarious scene in mind. "I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don't want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing 'Mr. Lonely.'"

The Fashion Police host did not want to be slammed on her own show. After all, what else would have she thought when she wrote this: "I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag."

And of course, what adds more glamour to your look? "And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing like Beyoncé's."

Rest In Peace Joan. And we wish all your wishes are fulfilled.
