Joan Rivers' Funeral to Feature a Red Carpet

Joan Rivers
Joan Rivers' funeral is getting the red carpet treatment, just like the comedienne wanted it.
According to The Insider with Yahoo, not only will Rivers' NYC funeral on Sunday feature a red carpet, but it will also be buried with the comedy legend at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Los Angeles.
Rivers, who revolutionized red carpets with the now-routine "Who are you wearing?", detailed her expectations for a extravagant funeral in her 2012 book, I Hate Everyone... Starting with Me.

"I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene!" Rivers wrote. "I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don't want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing 'Mr. Lonely.' I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyonce's."
The legendary pioneer passed away Thursday at the age of 81. She had been hospitalized a week prior after she stopped breathing during a surgical procedure on her vocal cords and had been on life support since.
"My mother's greatest joy in life was to make people laugh," Rivers' daughter, Melissa, said in a statement Thursday. "Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon."
