Joan Rivers was laid to rest on Sunday, Sept. 7 at a
funeral service in NYC’s Temple Emanu-El on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
The beloved comedienne, author, TV personality, and critic died at age 81 on
Thursday, Sept. 4, after suffering complications from a minor throat surgery.
She was cremated on Saturday.
In her personalized funeral requests from her 2012 memoir I
Hate Everyone…Starting With Me,
the funnywoman had asked for the event to
be a “showbiz affair with lights, cameras, and action.” The service
would not have disappointed her. 

Dozens of A-listers came out in droves to pay their respects to the
comedy legend. Those in attendance included Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana and Bill Rancic, Howard Stern, Kathy Griffin, Rosie O’Donnell, Mario Cantone, Kristin
Chenoweth, Sally Jesse Raphael, Chuck Scarborough, Hota Kotb, Kathie Lee
Gifford, Andy Cohen, Whoopi Goldberg, Sarah Jessica Parker, Jeff
Ross, Donald
and Melania
Trump, Donald Trump Jr., Judge Judy Sheindlin, Michael Kors, Carolina Herrera,
Geraldo Rivera, Alicia Quarles, Barbara Walters, Rachael Ray, Billy Bush
, and
Dr. Oz.
Many guests wore black with colorful accents, and an
eyewitness tells Us Weekly, “It really was reminiscent of a red carpet
affair — plenty of lights and cameras. There were fans everywhere and
people in taxis passing by shouting ‘We love Joan!'”
Most guests had arrived by 11 a.m. and the ceremony let out
around 12:15 p.m. A bagpipe player performed a medley of tunes as guests exited
the temple, including Frank Sinatra‘s “New York, New York.”

Rivers’ longtime friend Cindy Adams also gave insight into her
funeral arrangements, writing in Page Six, “it
starts with the Gay Men’s choir show tunes, the rabbi’s opening prayer, Audra
McDonald singing, Debra Norville reminiscing. Then me, Melissa, Hugh Jackman. A
closing prayer then an NYPD cadre and four horseback riders who, I was told,
did not come cheap.”
The Fashion Police star leaves behind her daughter Melissa
and grandson Cooper.
