    It is not surprising that Joan Rivers, upon the time of her death, was rich. She worked in Hollywood for 40-something years, and maniacally at that. But according to Us Weekly she was obscenely rich.

    Per an "insider" who revealed details of Rivers' will, her daughter Melissa will inherit an estate worth over $100 million. $35 million of that comes from a "French-inspired" (what?) Manhattan condo, which isn't that surprising or interesting given the state of New York real estate. But another $75 million comes from cash. As in purely liquid, immediately spendable cash.

    This fact seems to be glossed over by Us. Here is the exact relevant text of their story:

    Melissa will inherit $75 million in cash and Joan's French-inspired $35 million condo on New York's Upper East Side, the insider tells Us.

    No big deal. Just $75 million in cash. What?? Did Joan Rivers secretly work for Goldman Sachs?

    Now, who knows if this number is actually correct. But even if Us was off by, say, a whole $25 million dollars, Joan Rivers still would have died with $50 million in the bank. Maybe I don't know a lot about money (I don't know a lot about money), but that's an extreme amount of cash for anyone, to say nothing of a comedian.

    RIP Joan Rivers, you were very rich and didn't spend your money on dumb old cars. Very cool.

    Unlike worthless whores like Jackie O or Princess Di, or Beth, who mooch off men, Joan earned every penny herself, worked her ass off to do it.

    Joan was awesome, too bad her worthless, talentless daughter gets the motherload...

    It's more than that. An undisclosed amount from the estate goes to Melissa's son that isn't included in this figure.

    Thanks to Howard for re-inventing her.
    He made her wealthy and probably killed her too.

    I remember Joan saying she was selling other homes to be more liquid. Guess it helped.

    I thought she was much more wealthier than 100 mill. And with all the money in the world, you get a doctor who was allegedly taking selfies while operating on her. Just goes to show you can't take it with you.

    Same thing with the French oil exec killed on the runway by a drunk Russian driver. What are the odds of drunk driving accident in your private jet - Only in Russia.

    The woman made tons of money in her early days, and I'd imagine she invested wisely.

    She also worked constantly until she died, which paid for her month to month lavish expenses.

    Nope, he left her with almost nothing, she was pretty broke in the 90's then came QVC, and other businesses. Comics in those days made shit, after the Fox fiasco, she couldn't get hired to do a Bar Mitzvah
