Melissa Rivers on Her Mom, Plastic Surgery Lies & Her New Show (LISTEN)

Posted: Updated:

Some think being the child of a celebrity is a cake-walk compared to the rest of us, but actress/producer, Melissa Rivers begs to differ. "You have to work that much harder to prove yourself," she says in my interview with her.

Rivers is probably one of my favorite celebrities to speak with, not only because she has remained humble despite her wealth, fame and family legacy but she gives generously and privately to charitable causes without notice.

In my interview with Rivers today, she discusses her book, her work as a producer, her hilarious new reality show with her mother shooting this summer called, Mother Knows Best and she details the cruel uncalled for criticisms, plastic surgery rumors and lies, and how those have affected and motivated her to prove herself to the world and her son.
