This could be fun. Liz Hayes meets one Joan Rivers for an interview this week for 60 Minutes.

Hope she dishes more about her troubled Aussie tour last year….

Wild Rivers
She’s loud. She’s brash. Hell, she can be downright rude. But you have to admire comedienne Joan Rivers.
At 77, her career has undergone a makeover every bit as startling as her famous brushes with the surgeon’s knife. She’s clawed her way back onto Hollywood’s A-list, courtesy of reality television and a warts-and-all documentary. Yes, Joan has decided to tell all, albeit with a comic touch.

Natural Born Killers
They seem the friendliest and most sociable of creatures. At least, that’s the impression you get when you watch killer whales swimming in wildlife documentaries or performing at marine parks. But don’t be fooled. These are wild animals, predators at the very top of the food chain. They are, as their name implies, killers. None more so than Tilikum, an orca at Florida’s Sea World. He’s killed three times. Two of his victims were his trainers and his tragic story makes you wonder what we’re doing confining these majestic and clearly very dangerous creatures in concrete tanks.

Open Hearts
The equation should be so simple. On one side, Ethiopian orphans craving love and security, on the other, childless Australian couples with empty homes and open hearts. Bring them together and everyone’s happy. Well, that’s how it should be, anyway. Sadly, red tape and mismanagement here in Australia and over in Africa have scuttled the dreams of hundreds of would-be families. It’s heartbreaking for the kids, for the prospective parents and for Peter Overton because he’s been privileged enough to witness first-hand just how wonderful these adoptions can be.

It airs 7:30pm Sunday on Nine.

  1. Re:Ethiopian orphans.Maybe finally the Ethiopian government has got it’s act together,Foreign Correspondent on the ABC on a segment ages back pointed out
    Americans were adopting kids and they were not orphans at all.Others had life threatening ailments that were not exposed to the future parents.All ethics go out the window when it’s all turned into a business and children are sold just like a sack of potatoes.
