Joan Rivers had a barbed tongue but she also had a soft spot for animals. She went everywhere with her dog, Spike, whom she credited with saving her from committing suicide after her husband's death.
Despite her penchant for wearing fur, Joan always appreciated PETA's efforts. She invited me to come onto her talk show for a lively debate on the topic in 1989. In the '90s, Joan enthusiastically helped launch her daughter Melissa's "Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur" ad for PETA. Soon after, for Passover, Joan recorded PETA's vegan hotline promoting soy ham, or as Joan called it, "pork even a Jew can eat."
