The death of Joan Rivers shocked everyone and many of her celebrity friends have expressed their feelings about her passing and the life she lived.
Sarah Silverman recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live, where she talked about her new relationship and the death of Joan Rivers.
“She was a hero to me, and I love her very much,” Silverman said. “I think a lot of people, when they die at 81, you go, ‘Well, she was 81, she had an amazing life.’ But she wasn’t done. She, right now, was at her most vital. Oh, my God, I tuned into ‘Fashion Police’ every Friday because they were the most hard-core jokes on TV. You just can’t believe that she’s saying them,” she said.
“She never stopped writing, and I know that if she was here she’d would want us to be here and be funny. And she’d probably want me to say, ‘Nice tie. Who made it? Calvin Clown? I like that shirt. Does it come in men’s? Oh, my gosh, Jimmy, I love your hair! You have to tell me where you bought it … . That’s for you, Joan,” she added.

Silverman and Kimmel dated for a long time but have both moved on. While some people might think the two would feel awkward talking about their past relationship, they took advantage of the situation and decided to take a few jabs at each other.
“Now, I believe that half of America thinks you’re dating Charlie Sheen,” Kimmel said, referring to Sarah’s new boyfriend Michael Sheen.
Sarah was quick with a comeback and said,
“He’s the best at what he does, he’s so good,” she said, with the audience cracking up at Kimmel’s expense. “I think he is. I just, I really am so happy to have him be a part of my life and to get to be a part of his life. And I realized, like, I don’t think I ever really knew what love was. I don’t think I’ve ever really been in love before, I realized, you know what I mean?”
The two comedians continued to joke with each other and Kimmel ended the interview by going through Sarah’s purse and finding a variety of strange items, including a Netflix envelope containing Space Jam, a handgun she claimed was for “a bit,” lipstick, a yard-long sheet of condoms and a picture of an overweight Kimmel.
Nice to see that the two jokesters can put the past behind them and still have fun together.
