Joan Rivers

Forget “Real Housewives” or “The Bachelorette.” Joan Rivers is someone whose life we want to vicariously live every week on TV.

After more than 15 years of single life, Rivers has announced she is ready to find love — and we can watch her do it.

Starting in September, Rivers will star in a webseries on SheKnows TV, called “Romancing the Joan.”

Too good to be true you say? Well, it gets better.

The show will feature eight eligible bachelors vying for Joan’s heart. They’ll only have a couple of minutes to make a good impression before she gives the first round the axe (and you thought “Fashion Police” was harsh?).

I wanted all of them to stay,” Rivers, told SheKnows in an exclusive interview. “I need some new pool boys, a couple palm frond wavers and a grape peeler.”

The show will be hosted by Rivers’ daughter Melissa. According to the show’s promo, Melissa was less than impressed with the fact that some of the “yummy bachelors” are younger than her.

“Some of them were so young! It was gross,” Melissa told SheKnows. “I mean, do they even know how old my mother is?”

Joan, being Joan, answered: “Do you even know how old I am?”

A real lady never tells.
