Joan Rivers

Costco Won't Sell My Book!

6/1/2012 11:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0601_joan_rivers_video_tmz_5Joan Rivers' new book is set to hit stores next week, but you won't find it at your local Costco ... because Joan claims the bulk retailer has cancelled its order because Joan refused to remove a few raunchy jokes on the back cover. 

Joan called in to TMZ this AM in the middle of the morning meeting and explained how Costco objected to 2 fake testimonials:

-- Wilt Chamberlain: "Even if I were alive I wouldn't f**k her."
-- Marie Antoinette: "I don't like her. Let her eat s**t."

Costco had neither a comment nor a sense of humor.

I remember when Joan used to genuinely funny...but man-o-man has she fallen. I shop at Cosco because of the prices (and samples), now my reasoning for shopping there has been fortified by their (Cosco's) making the correct decision in reading material...attention Cosco "You have my business"...

Costco throws their books in a bin to be pawed through by whoever, maybe little kids, maybe sensitive old religious people. Maybe they don't want them to inadvertantly have to read dirty language. If she wants to sell her book there, I guess she had better compromise, or else she will lose the money. The rock stars all do it, they change their album covers and put sleaves on them and warning stickers on them. Why can't she take a couple of dirty jokes off the jacket of her book then?

Maybe she doesn't know what good taste is any more, especially after her own kid dated a porno king.

I think if Betty White drank...she'd be Joan Rivers.


Honestly, you have to give Joan Rivers credit for lasting this long. As tough as I think I am...I doubt I could keep up.

Actually those jokes on the back of her book are funny...only not on the back of the book at Costco. Should be used in her stand - up routine on stage.. Maybe in Vegas?

I used to like her back in the day prior to her debacle with Johnny Carson and all the cosmetic surgeries. She actually used to be funny instead of just a female schlock and shock Howard Stern. Joan jumped the shark big time after Edgar committed suicide and she and Melissa played themselves in a TV movie about what should have stayed their private tragedy. Then no-talent Melissa changes her last name to Rivers and rides her mother's coattails to a D+ list career of sorts.

The language on the back cover does not fit the stores image. She had to know that.

My support of Costco just got stronger. Don't like the idea that they are censoring but someone needs to take a position with Joan Rivers. She is repulsive!
