Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Charlie Rose, Kathie Lee Gifford, and Hoda Kotb were among the TV newsers at yesterday’s funeral for Joan Rivers.
“I have never seen anything like it — full of love, full of laughter,” said Rose on “CBS This Morning. “Inside Edition” host Deborah Norville, who’s been friends with Rivers for 25 years, delivered a eulogy. On “Good Morning America” Norville told Robin Roberts, “The woman I knew was hilariously funny. An incredible practical joker. She was kind to the core and there through thick and thin.”
Said Gifford on “Today,” “I think it was the perfect combination between the profane and the sacred. Because Joan was like that. We all know the profane part of Joan, but there was a sacred part as well.”
