A good barometer of whether something is worth writing about or not is if Joan Rivers has anything to say about it. Another, higher (and rarer) measure of success is if she has something GOOD to say about it.
This week, the forthcoming Kanye West and Kim Kardashian nuptials win on both counts.
Upon hearing about Kanye finally popping the question to Kim — on her birthday, no less — Joan tweeted:
Our E! family is thrilled about Kim’s engagement. She’s a lovely girl, a hard worker and we wish her the best. Watch @ENews tonight for more ampmdash; Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) October 22, 2013
Well, it seems people were so amazed at her lack of snark that the our favorite fashion cop had to send another tweet, assuring her account had not, in fact, been hacked.
NO-my account wasn't hacked! I'm truly thrilled for @KimKardashian and I wish her the very best. Can’t I send a nice tweet once in a while? ampmdash; Joan Rivers (@Joan_Rivers) October 22, 2013
