Joan & Melissa Rivers: Why We Love Halloween

Posted on

When Melissa Rivers was a child, her mom made sure Halloweens were special even when the family was away from home. “When we were in a hotel, I’d knock on all the rooms and give people candy, so Melissa could go trick-or-treating,” recalls Joan, 78. These days the Fashion Police and reality TV stars love going door-to-door in L.A. with Melissa’s son Cooper, 10, and his friends. “I’m usually stressed and counting how many kids I’ve lost,” jokes Melissa, 43. But Cooper’s grandma just revels in the holiday spirit. “The neighborhood houses are all decked out in cobwebs and ghosts. It’s like a Disney movie. I come out every year, and it is so much fun.”
