Comedienne Joan Rivers agreed to make a guest appearance in plastic surgery show NIP/TUCK, because it means she gets a free trip to see her daughter MELISSA and grandson COOPER.

Rivers, who is so stranger to plastic surgery herself, has been cast to make an appearance in the acclaimed series' 5 October (04) season finale - and she admits there were a handful of motivating factors involved in her decision to take on the job.

She says, "I'm a fan of the show, that's number one. It's always fun to act, that's number two. And number three, I get to go to California - free trip to see Melissa and Cooper.

"I hope to get a nice wardrobe out of it."
