Just saw Joan RiversÌ¢‰â‰㢠new doc, it was really interesting. I learned a lot about the life of a performer that I never knew about. For those who havenÌ¢‰â‰ã¢t seen it, I wonÌ¢‰â‰ã¢t ruin anything, but Joan is a truly remarkable woman.

Check it out, Joan RiversÌ¢‰â‰㢠new movie was number one last weekend! I am pining for Friday, when it comes to Chicago
