Melissa Rivers: Inheritance of $100M a 'Giant Exaggeration'

By    |   Thursday, 14 May 2015 06:55 AM

Melissa Rivers, daughter of the late comedian Joan Rivers, said reports of her $100 million inheritance are a "giant exaggeration."

Rivers was on "The Wendy Williams Show" on Tuesday to promote her new book, "The Book of Joan: Tales of Mirth, Mischief and Manipulation," when Williams brought up the windfall.

"You're on a big choking diamonds trend," Williams said, noting Rivers' earrings. "Now that you have $100 million."

"Which I do not have, by the way!" Rivers responded.

"That was a giant exaggeration to the point where I read it so many places, I picked up my phone and called my business manager. I said, 'Do I have $100 million?' He was like, 'No.' I said, 'Maybe you forgot to tell me.' He said, 'No, I didn't forget to tell you, you don't have it.'"

Previously, Us Weekly and other publications reported in October that Rivers was set to inherit $75 million in cash, as well as her mother's $35-million condo on Manhattan's Upper East Side.

Rivers and Williams also discussed their respective teenage sons, and got into a little casting talk in regard to Joan's long-running show, "Fashion Police." Amber Rose, Kimora Lee Simmons, Khloé Kardashian, and Lloyd Boston were floated as potential candidates.
