The death of Joan Rivers has hit the entertainment world hard, but one of the fellow celebrities most affected by her passing is Kelly Osbourne, who has worked with Joan on E!’s Fashion Police for the past several years and grew close to the comedian both personally and professionally.
Here’s what Kelly wrote on her Facebook page after hearing the news:
I’m completely heartbroken by the loss of my beloved Joan. Not only was she my boss, she was and will always be my teacher, therapist, closest friend, inspiration and the only grandmother I ever knew. She was family and I will never forget her. Laughter will be difficult for a while but when I’m sad, lonely or upset all I will have to do is think of Joan and a smile will cross my face. Laughter is what she gave us and laughter is what she would want us to do in remembrance of her. Melissa and Cooper, my thoughts are with you and I love you both so much. Joan, thank you for taking me in and loving me as a daughter. I will miss you deeply and will always hear your voice in my head saying ‘my darling get out there and be you!’
Very sad and very unexpected. Hollywood will never be quite the same, that’s for sure!
