I recently watched Joan Rivers celebrate her 79th birthday on E!'s Fashion Police, her latest TV hosting gig. I have to say, I'm a "Joan Ranger." Wanting to know more about this woman's journey and what continues to motivate her after all these years, I checked out Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work. This documentary offers a very honest portrait of the woman behind the plastic surgery and crass jokes. Having been in the business for more than 50 years, Ms. Rivers struggles to stay in the spotlight and keep on working. I was surprised at the candidness and impressed with this woman's drive.
