Once people turned old—now they turn into teenaged comic book characters
LA to correspondent:
Look at the 77 year old Joan Rivers: she looks like Veronica in Archie comics.Correspondent replies:
I don’t get this. Veronica was a brunette. Do you mean Betty?LA replies:
I guess I got the hair color wrong, but I was thinking of the features, not the hair. Though, since it’s a long time since I saw Archie comics, maybe she looks like Betty instead of Veronica.

That’s not what she looks like today. That picture must be many years old.James P. writes:
Sometimes people do get old, and age shockingly badly, to boot.LA replies:
Almost all the women in this photo series have had extensive cosmetic surgery. So this is not about aging; it’s about cosmetic surgery. And several of the men, who do not have visible cosmetic surgery, do not look bad.Jim C., who works in entertainment, writes:
Rivers is in show business, so she knows how discriminated against the elderly are in the entertainment field. Even 50 is considered old for a producer.LA replies:
This is not an answer to my point. This is a restatement of my point.January 25

You were right the first time. She looks a lot more like Veronica than Betty, hair color aside. (And age-wise, she’s younger than both!) Veronica was manipulative, while Betty was innocent.LA replies:
I wonder why Steve W. assumed that the less complimentary photos of Rivers had to be more recent than the one I posted. It was just as likely that Rivers got messy looking, then had radical cosmetic surgery that made her look like a comic book teenager.
