The incomparable duo of Joan and Melissa Rivers are back for a no holds barred season three of Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?, with eight, one-hour episodes.
Joan and Melissa invite cameras back into their lives to capture what will prove to be the most intense season yet!
With shocking revelations and mounting tensions, the two pull back the veil on their personal lives this season as they tackle complex issues like sexuality, infidelity, love, health and parenting.
The result is a never-been-seen, in-depth look at this funny, multi-faceted mother-daughter pair.
If you thought Joan couldn't be any busier than last season, guess again. Joan, who is still living in Melissa's L.A. home, is in overdrive to always stay relevant with the launch of her web series, In Bed With Joan; her 11th book, a New York Times best seller, I Hate Everyone... Starting With Me; host of a national TV fashion series; a SRO comedy act that has her traveling all across the country; and a recent comedy tour that takes Joan and Melissa across the pond for an unforgettable British invasion.
In addition, this season features notable guests Jane Lynch, Lily Tomlin, Ellie Kemper, Kelly Osbourne, Graham Norton, Kato Kaelin and Chris Harrison.
Meanwhile, after a heartbreaking split with her then-boyfriend, Jason Zimmerman, Melissa delves deep to uncover the source of her problems with men.
She enters therapy to talk about her ongoing struggle of being the daughter of a cultural icon and living in her shadow, the effects of her father's suicide, as well as dealing with the emotional repercussions of her failed, past relationships.
Determined to not let anything hold her back, Melissa's empire is steadily growing as she juggles a number of ventures, including executive producing an hour-long TV fashion series with her outspoken mom.
It's all about making better choices for Melissa this season and although there are differences of opinion between the two Rivers, the love is still evident; and underneath it all, there's a strong mother-daughter bond that viewers still can't get enough of.
Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? is produced for WE tv by Pie Town Productions and executive produced by Tara Sandler, Jennifer Davidson, Scott Templeton and Blake Levin.
