The native New Yorker first found mainstream success in 1965 when she appeared on The Tonight Show With Johnny Carson. Rivers later got her own syndicated daytime talk show and went on to write several best-selling books. In 1994, the comedienne began doing pre-awards show interviews for the E! network, and in 2010, she hosted a new series, Fashion Police. Rivers also stars in a Style Network reality series with her daughter, Joan and Melissa: Joan Knows Best.
