Melissa Rivers Comments on 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel' and Why Joan Wasn't Mentioned as Inspiration

Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef - MELISSA RIVERS (on Joan, Joining RHOBH, The Oscars & Mrs. Maisel)!!! FULL INTERVIEW ON: ITUNES: SPOTIFY: Melissa Rivers steps back Behind The Rope!! Yup, she is baacck!! We could not think of anyone better to help us break down all the red carpets of this past, well, we guess we shall say, “interesting”, for lack of a better word, awards season than the one and only Fashion Icon herself, Melissa Rivers. Melissa does know a thing or two about fashion having hosted and executive produced that little blockbuster of a hit show, “Fashion Police” for many years. Melissa opens up about what Fashion Police would look like in 2021 and would she really ever consider going back. We chat with Melissa about the red carpet fashion, or lack thereof, seen in the past few weeks and chat about her predictions for the upcoming Oscars, which will be held live (no Zooms allowed!). We discuss the best and worst dressed of this awards season, who we have our eye on, and what and who it would take to “fix” the current red carpet situation. The last time we chatted with Melissa Rivers, The Rope had a viral moment regarding Joan Rivers and what her thoughts on wearing a mask would be - Google It. To that extent, we followed up the only way we know how, by discussing what would Joan Rivers think and say about having one's entire glam team come over, spend hours and hours making you up, slipping on a way overpriced height of fashion dress, shoes and jewels to travel to your living room to sit in front of a computer and accept an Award. Or your kitchen? Or bedroom? Speaking of Joan Rivers, she was always honest about her feelings for Ellen. We ask Melissa about Ellen, and what would Joan’s thoughts be about the public scrutiny that Ellen has received in the past year causing her “fall from grace.” Speaking of a fall from grace, we chat about Cancel Culture, are comedians “exempt” by the very definition of the job, and how would Joan hold up in our current climate. Of course, we had to ask Melissa the obvious question, would she ever consider joining RHOBH? We chat about who she knows on the cast, what type of Housewife she would be, what type of Real Housewives Mom Joan Rivers would be, and finally what she thinks of our fav diamond holders’ fashion choices. With Housewives and TV on the mind, we chat with Melissa about her ex Fashion Police co-host Nene Leakes’ current “Boycott Bravo” petition and can one ever come back from going against a network, what family she thinks is prime to be the next royal family of E once the Kardashians step aside, and when will she start receiving royalties for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which is so very obviously based on the life of the most Iconic Female Comedian to ever live, past, present, future til the end of all time, Miss Joan Rivers. @melissariversofficial @behindvelvetrope @davidyontef Bonus Episodes Available at -
