Melissa Rivers, the daughter of comedian and talk show host Joan Rivers, five years after the death of her mother, is discussing her father, Edgar Rosenberg’s suicide.

Rivers spoke with Dr. Jennifer Ashton on the podcast “Life After Suicide.” Ashton’s husband committed suicide.

Rivers admitted that she was angry at both her mother and her father. She became mad at anybody, even the UPS worker. She said she used to call it “free-floating anger.”

Rivers, who is now 51 years old said while she was grieving her father’s death, she and her mother realized they had no money left. Rosenberg who was his wife’s manager not only went through any income he had but also Joan’s.

She also said her when her father died, she felt like an outcast.

She said: “You like there is a giant stamp all over you. People do not know how to act or what they should say. People do not know if they should talk about it. It is a very lonely feeling.”

Joan Rivers, Melissa’s mother, is best known for her outspokenness and shows “The Joan Rivers Show” and “Fashion Police.” She died in 2014 after there were complications during a medical procedure.
