Joan Rivers' $150 Million Fortune Will Go to Daughter Melissa… and Her Dogs?!
Comedian Joan Rivers once publicly told daughter Melissa that when it comes to her fortune, “everything's in your name”… it turns out that's not completely true.
Joan's goddaughter Tracie Hotchner tells the Daily Mail that the Emmy winner left “clear provisions” for her rescue dogs.
Rivers, worth approximately $150 million, owned four dogs. Samantha and Teegan lived with her in NYC, while a Jack Russell Terrier and a Border Collie stayed with her in California.
Tracie shared on her blog, “How could you not love a woman who, when push came to shove, called her doggies her best friends and in later years said they were better companions than a husband because 'They didn't leave the seat up!'”
New York Post columnist Cindy Adams revealed earlier that Samantha and Teegan were even allowed to visit Joan in the hospital “for a moment to kiss mommy.”
Adams said Joan's longtime assistant Jocelyn would most likely be the one to take ownership of the dogs.
