Joan Rivers to Publish ‘Burn Book’ Posthumously

Sadly, legendary funny woman Joan Rivers passed away at the age of 81 in September. Over the past several weeks, fans have been revisiting her hilarious standup routines, reading her brilliant one-liners, and remembering all her unforgettable red carpet moments, knowing that Rivers’ could no longer share her quick wit and oft-time offensive sense of humor with the world.

But, guess what? According to Radar Online, Rivers requested that her diaries be released after her death.

"Joan requested that after she is gone, her personal diaries be turned into a book," a source tells Radar Online. "The problem is, they are having a hard time shopping it around because of how over-the-top defamatory it is."

"Joan bashes celebrities and politicians in first-hand accounts throughout her life. Among her biggest revelations is that President Obama is gay, which is something she joked about while she was alive."

Will any publishing company be brave enough to take on rivers’ “burn book”?
