Diary of a Mad Diva by Joan Rivers
“This book be dedicated to Kanye West, because he’ll never fuckin’ read it.”
Following up the phenomenal success of her headline-making New York Times bestseller I Hate Everyone…Starting With Me, the unstoppable Joan Rivers is at it again. When her daughter Melissa gives her a diary for Christmas, at first Joan is horrified—who the hell does Melissa think she is? That fat pig, Bridget Jones? But as Joan, being both beautiful and introspective, begins to record her day-to-day musings, she realizes she has a lot to say. About everything. And everyone, God help them.
The result? A no-holds-barred, delightfully vicious and always hilarious look at the everyday life of the ultimate diva. Follow Joan on a family vacation in Mexico and on trips between New York and Los Angeles where she mingles with the stars, never missing a beat as she delivers blistering critiques on current events, and excoriating insights about life, pop culture, and celebrities (from A to D list), all in her relentlessly funny signature style.
Joan is gone but will never be forgotten. She left an incredible legacy of hilariously inappropriate jokes and a work ethic that continues to inspire. I strongly recommend the audiobook as you can relive Joan’s spitfire humor and hear her incredible jokes once again – she even won a Grammy for it.
The book reads like a diary and enables you to spend a year in the life with Joan. You can even just read a diary entry every day and lengthen the fun of the book. No one is save in this book. In typical Joan fashion, she doesn’t hold back making fun of anyone and everyone.
This book had me laughing out loud, although it didn’t find it as hysterical as my favorite Joan book, I Hate Everyone…Starting With Me, and because of that I give this book 3.5/5 Stars.
