Joan Rivers to conduct 1,000th interview

July 10, 2006 at 9:54 PM   |   Comments

LOS ANGELES, July 10 (UPI) -- Comedian Joan Rivers probably will conduct her 1,000th red carpet interview during the 58th Emmy Awards preshow ceremonies in Los Angeles.

Rivers will begin the Aug. 27 evening on her 981st interview, so with all the stars gathered, she should have no difficulty meeting the mark -- perhaps within the first hour, TV Guide Channel President Ryan O'Hara said.

Rivers began reporting for TV Guide last year, but had accumulated hundreds of interviews while she was with E! Entertainment, Daily Variety reported.

The comic said she hoped her last interviewee "will be wearing a name tag."

TV Guide Channel has also contracted with Melissa Rivers, Joan Rivers' daughter, to do six hourlong episodes of "TV Candy" to give average people makeovers to look like their favorite stars.
