UPDATE FROM EILEEN
Gossip, Gossip, Gossip...
Talk... I've been having a lot of fun impersonating "Joan" starting with an appearance on the "TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY
LENO"... KTLA TV airing "Joan" at the REEL AWARDS.
Eileen, originally from Chicago, is an actress and stand-up comedienne who started her career when meeting Bette Midler over lunch in New York.
While laughing, Bette advised Eileen that she was a "natural comedienne" and should study at Chicago's SECOND CITY.
Just a year later, Eileen appeared as a guest on THE PHIL DONAHUE SHOW as an Up & Coming Comedienne.
Moving to Los Angeles with her husband and daughter, she appeared as a "Regular" at the Comedy Store. After her gigs, she would go to Joan River's workshop where Joan would try out her new material and jokes on the audience.
Joan instantly liked Eileen and took her under her wing. She told Eileen,"I like you...I'm going to train you, you'll come, you'll learn !
AND SHE DID !
Over the years, Joan mentored Eileen who appeared as her guest on THE JOAN RIVERS SHOW winning the "Joan Rivers Lookalike Competition".
She has also appeared on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO, GERALDO and VICKI! LAWRENCE SHOW (Partial list).
I've worked other jobs but the most exciting event was flying to Washington D.C. for the AOL Corporate Christmas Party. I didn't want to look shabby so I wore a Bob Mackie original gown ...We've all seen Joan at the Awards ceremonies greeting celebrities, making a fuss over them and what they're wearing, well, that was ME with all the AOL VIP's!...just like live TV, my TV crew frantically chasing me to televise my dishy comments and antics on big screens and in everyone's hotel suites just like the real "award shows". People told me they were laughing out loud watching me on television from their hotel rooms as they were getting dressed for the event. I lost a few pounds that night greeting 6000 VIP's...but it was worth it, everyone had a ball and thought I was really Joan !!!
