Next up was “In Bed with Joan” a weekly internet and television talk show filmed from Joan’s bed as they get personal with numerous celebrities from Kathy Griffin to Carmen Electra. Joan Rivers died in September 2014 and Melissa inherited approximately 0 million of her estate.
As executor of Joan’s estate worth 0 million, Melissa reportedly received million in cash as well as her mom’s opulent Manhattan apartment valued at million, bringing her total inheritance to over 0 million.
Joan also left a piece of her estate to her grandson, Edgar Cooper Endicott (b.
2000) whom Melissa had from her previous marriage to horse trainer John Endicott.
A bulk of the proceeds from the auction were donated to two charities; “God’s Love We Deliver” and “Guide Dogs for the Blind.”However, it wasn’t the first time Melissa donated huge sums to charity.
In the past, she gave proceeds from her reality TV show appearances to charity.
Minus the inheritance, Melissa later filed a malpractice lawsuit against the hospital and doctors who operated on her mom.
She blamed her mom’s death on “medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect, and outrageous behaviour”.
The rooms spread throughout the beautiful home include a formal dining room, formal living room, and a two-story library/office.
She also still has her longtime home in Pacific Palisades where she has lived since 1998.
Other Melissa-Joan collaborations include “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?
” – a reality TV series that chronicled their daily lives which aired on WE tv for 4 seasons from 2011 – 2012.
Melissa Rivers has been dating the talent agent Mark Rousso for over two years now.
