Summary
Rivers was an icon and a role model to millions, a fearless pioneer who left a legacy of expanded opportunity when she died in 2014. Her life was a dramatic roller-coaster of triumphant highs and devastating lows: the suicide of her husband, her feud with Johnny Carson, estrangement from her daughter, ferocious ambition and massive insecurities. But Rivers' career broke down barriers for her gender and pushing the boundaries of truth-telling for women in public life
Summary
A portrait of the influential comedienne explores her enduring cultural legacy, discussing subjects ranging from her husband's suicide and her feud with Johnny Carson to her numerous cosmetic surgeries and her controversial death in 2014
