Winner of the 2015 Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album Following up the phenomenal success of her headline-making New York Times bestseller I Hate Everyone...Starting With Me, the unstoppable Joan Rivers is at it again. When her daughter Melissa gives her a diary for Christmas, at first Joan is horrified-who the hell does Melissa think she is? That fat pig, Bridget Jones? But as Joan, being both beautiful and introspective, begins to record her day-to-day musings, she realizes she has a lot to say. About everything. And everyone, God help them. The result? A no-holds-barred, delightfully vicious and always hilarious look at the everyday life of the ultimate diva. Follow Joan on a family vacation in Mexico and on trips between New York and Los Angeles where she mingles with the stars, never missing a beat as she delivers blistering critiques on current events, and excoriating insights about life, pop culture, and celebrities (from A to D list), all in her relentlessly funny signature style. This is the Diary of a Mad Diva. Forget about Anais Nin, Anne Frank, and that whiner Sylvia Plath. For the first time in a century, a diary by someone that's actually worth reading.

Professional reviews

"For some listeners, this raucous, often vulgar audio romp of rapid-fire faux diary entries will be a treat. Others will want to be warned that the well-known comedian and home shopping diva presents commentary on todayÕs pop celebrity culture that is liberally peppered with foul language and degrading comments about a variety of people. Listeners are, with a wink, repeatedly reminded that itÕs all in fun. Those who may have followed RiversÕs career over many years may be offended by the candidness of these observations. She airs her opinions on everyone from waiters to political leaders and even her beloved grandson. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
