In one of her final interviews, Joan Rivers named Michelle Obama as one of three people she wouldn’t want attending her funeral.
The veteran comedienne passed away on Thursday (Sept. 4), days after suffering a cardiac arrest during a routine throat procedure.
Her funeral attracted a bevy of celebs, including Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Kelly Osbourne, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
In an interview with UK’s Sunday Times Magazine conducted just weeks before her death, she came up with a list of people she didn’t want at the funeral: the First Lady, whom she branded “a tranny,” singer Adele for being “fat” and comedienne Chelsea Handler, dubbed by Rivers as a “drunk” and a “w**re.”
She also discussed how she knew death would soon be “inevitable” because of her advancing years and revealed she had been trying to help her daughter Melissa come to terms with her mother’s mortality.
“Melissa says, ‘I don’t want to hear about it, I don’t want to talk about it’, but I say it’s comi-i-i-ing! It’s inevitable. It’s no longer an abstract thing,” Rivers said. “It’s like, God, I’m in my eighties. Nobody, when I die, is going to say, ‘How young?’ They’re going to say, ‘She had a great ride.’”
