Wise Words from Joan Rivers--the Original Kathy Griffin

Joan Rivers on real friendships from a great article in New York Magazine

"All I want you to do, if we are sitting down and it's after 6 p.m., is tell me the truth.  Because we've all lied to each other all day long in business and we've all had these lunches and we've all ass-kissed to the point where I carry Chapstick.  If I am going to sit down and eat with you, just tell me the truth and let me say to you, "Things are lousy and I'm sad.'"

Another gem:  When at a cocktail party a great conversation starter with someone you don't know is to ask, "So, tell me who you hate."  Pure Joan.  Love it.
