Rivers Bankruptcy Pain
Funnywoman JOAN RIVERS remains so distraught by her spell of bankruptcy, she is frugal to the point of sweeping hotel rooms for soap bars before she leaves.
The comedienne stunned a recently stunned a journalist with her careful behaviour in a hotel, but Rivers insists her actions are normal for someone who was once $37 million (GBP20 million) in debt.
While the 72 year-old superstar is currently riding a crest of success she refuses to rule out another financial setback.
She says, "We're paying for it we might as well have it - that comes from my seven years of being very poor.
"Don't leave anything you've paid for. Every time I see soap in a bathroom, I grab it.
"You never shake off hard times - especially in my business. Because I've had hard times and comeback twice in my career and there could be a third time.
"You don't know."
