Q What is the wacky Joan Rivers up to these days?
—Mary Dunn, Palestine, Texas

Rivers, 72, stays very busy during televised awards shows, including the Golden Globes, Emmys and Oscars, where she and her daughter, Melissa, provide colorful running commentary on the attendees and how they look—and she makes no apologies for her often-catty quips. "I am what I am," she says. "I am irreverent, so that's a given." Rivers, whose successful jewelry and cosmetic lines are sold on the QVC network, has written eight books, performs her stand-up comedy on tour and hosts a television talk show in England.
