What a special surprise! On the Jan. 19 episode of ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ viewers will be treated to perhaps the best guest star appearance of all time: the late Joan Rivers! Check out a sneak peak!
Thank you, technology! Before she tragically passed away in September of last year, Joan Rivers dropped by Celebrity Apprentice, the series on which she had previously been a contestant–and wound up winning! Now, the time has come for us to get one last look at Joan doing what she did best: being fab. Watch a clip for the episode right now!
Joan Rivers: ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ Final Appearance
“That’s my beautiful champ,” Donald Trump says of Joan Rivers in what would turn out to be the late, great diva’s last television series appearance. In an episode that is sure to be devastating and beautiful at the same time, Celebrity Apprentice has decided to go ahead and air the Joan Rivers footage that was shot before the diva’s heartbreaking death.
Watching Joan in this clip, chatting it up through her signature rasp, it still feels unreal that she is no longer with us. Though the loss remains difficult for her fans, friends and family, it is comforting to know that Joan will live on through the magic of television.
Gone But Not Forgotten
Although the Fashion Police star was 81 when she passed away, it still felt entirely untimely. Joan had been working on several projects when she died, and had shown no indication of slowing down.
Rather than canceling fashion police, comedienne Kathy Griffin was tapped to fill in for Joan, and though she will never really be able to fill her stilettos, Kathy is going to try in honor of the fallen fashion icon’s memory.
Are you excited to see Joan one more time on Celebrity Apprentice?
