Rivers -- Brooke Shields Exploited Jacko's Death

8/4/2009 10:51 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joan Rivers is calling out Brooke Shields for her weepy speech at Michael Jackson's memorial saying it was less about remembering her "dearest friend" and more about getting some serious "face time."

For the record: Shields admits the last time she saw Michael was 1991.

She's right! Brooke Shields speech was so ridiculous! I even took a bathroom break while she was speaking. PHONY!

Sorry, but I have to go with Joan this time. She's got it right! Interesting that Brooke hadn't seen him since the early 90s--a time some would say was his peak of fame--and yet she somehow managed to resurface and give a speech about during one of the most watched/anticipated/talked about television events of the decade. If that isn't going for the fame or the face time, I don't know what is. Why wasn't she by his side defending him during all of his controversies of the last 15 or so years if she loved him and cared about him so much?

Not that I like Rivers, but I have been wondering myself why MJ and Shields did not see each other again after 1991. In het book, LaToya Jackson was also very negative about Brooke Shields.

STFU Joan! Brooke's was one of the only REAL & SINCERE moments in the whole spectacle. When you speak at a memorial it's not only recent friends but people who knew you way back when.

Joan Rivers is a hag. After watching her childish behavior on The Apprentice, I don't like her anymore. Then the MJ comment and now this. BTW...her face looks horrid. Can she do anymore botox??

I would say that Joan Rivers is the one with the "serious face time"...actually serious face work!

Didn't Joan Rivers husband commit suicide? I would too, if I had Joan and Melissa as my family members.

Isn't the premise of a comedian for them to actually be funny? Maybe she was funny to audiences 45 years ago, but now she's just a circus freak. She's not only "not funny", she's un-funny!

Why is this cow even relevant enough to quote?

She was ASKED to speak moron, not to mention they wanted people to speak that had MEMORIES of him. Most of those people hadn't seen him in years and years, not just Brooke. Smokey Robinson hadn't seen him in forever either - John Mayer never even met him! This is just stupidity on Joan's part.

All the speeches at the memorial that cost the broke tax payers of LA, were scripted and fake! Brooke has not been around Michael for what 18 years? She spoke of when they were kids and not adults,part of hios Peter Pan days?

Rivers is just a bitter, senile old hag who disses people any chance she gets. The world will not mourn when she is gone, that's for sure. Brooke's speech seemed perfectly sincere to me - she never once gave me reason to question her sincerity.

Rivers should reduce the amount of 'face time' she gives her surgeon.
