Rivers, the raucous, acid-tongued comedian who crashed the male-dominated realm of late-night talk shows and turned Hollywood red carpets into danger zones for badly dressed celebrities, died Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014.

When it came to insults, Joan Rivers aimed everywhere: Elizabeth Taylor and Justin Bieber, Michelle Obama and Michael Jackson. Even celebrity babies weren’t safe.

And sometimes the target was Joan Rivers


Here are five memorable zingers by the comedian, who died Thursday at age 81:

—”Elizabeth Taylor fat? Her favorite food is seconds.”


—”I’ve never seen a six-month-old so desperately in need of a waxing,” on North West, daughter of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.

—”I’ve had so much plastic surgery, when I die they will donate my body to Tupperware.”

—”Boy George is all England needs — another queen who can’t dress.”

—”I blame my mother for my poor sex life. All she told me was ‘the man goes on top and the woman underneath.’ For three years my husband and I slept in bunk beds.”
