Rivers Slams Shields Over Jackson Memorial Speech

Controversial comedienne JOAN RIVERS has blasted model/actress BROOKE SHIELDS, accusing the beauty of exploiting MICHAEL JACKSON's death to boost her career.
Shields was one of the many celebrities to pay tribute to the King of Pop at his Los Angeles memorial in July (09).
The former Lipstick Jungle star fought back tears as she honoured her "little prince", recalling how much fun the pair had as teenage pals.
But her touching tribute has been savaged by Rivers, who claims Shields used Jackson's tragic death to her own advantage.
She tells TMZ.com, "I'd love to roast (mock) Brooke Shields. Michael's dearest friend. She hasn't seen him since 1993."
Shields - who has confessed she last saw Jackson in 1991 - landed her first major movie role in 10 years shortly after her appearance at Jackson's memorial, scoring a part in upcoming comedy Furry Vengeance.

it could be true since she hasn't seen him since 1991 it's a real shame that everybody treated this poor guy the way they did, when he was innocent about everything, now everybody tries to talk good about him including MS Rivers, but u know what ur all a bunch of hipocrites,I miss MJ it's been a month and a half and I'm still crying and I still can't except that he's gone.He needed more friends like his true fans somebody who would of helped him with his problem I can't beleave that for all this years nobody was able to do anything, now it's too late he died thinking that everybody thought that he was a child molester, I hope all the people that made himm miserable suffer in HELL.

I don't think Lionel Richie or Stevie Wonder released a new single or signed a new contract after their appearances. If someone decided to sign Brooke, than that was there decision. Why should she be penalized for accepting it or improper motives be implied? Just because people don't see each other for a long time does not mean that their are still not feelings between people especially with the past they had together. I don't think she'd use MJ's service for selfish reasons. It is true we may not have seen Brooke for awhile, but she was one of the person's I thought of when MJ died.

I don't think Brooke was expecting to get any kind of deal when she went to MJ's service. Ks.Rivers needs to shut her mouth.MJ's true fans knew that he didn't molest any child nor would he an adult for that matter.I have always loved MJ from the first time I heard his music. Brooke was one of the lucky ones to have known Mj in a personal way. I am very upset at the people that were close to Mj and didn't do anything to save him from this. I understand that they may have been afraid that he would push them out of his life if they did but he was a very special person and if done the right way they could have saved him from this addiction. If all his fans had shown him the love that they are showing now maybe he would have opened up to the help and let us know that he was getting the help he so much needed all these years. We can't just blame the ones that were close to him in away we should all blame ourselves for not showing him we still cared when he needed us the most.Michael I will Always Love you no matter where you are. Your Music will live on forever and ever in my heart. I had always wished I was a little older so you and I could be together no matter what the world thought.I will see you in my Dreams always.I also think that he will not be at peace in Forest Lawn that he still needs to be at Neverland where he was truly Happy. We could have all helped him make it back into a home. Alls we had to do was show him that the love was still there.Missing you Michael, Praying for you children and your family, hoping that you will finally rest in peace knowing your fans here in the USA still love you.XOXOXO,Kim
