Today, Jerry Seinfeld paid tribute to the late Joan Rivers by revealing that she was to be the first guest on the upcoming season of his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. He took to the series' Facebook page to share a text he received from Rivers's reps a month prior, writing: "I just came across this heartbreaking text on my phone from August 19th. I had asked Joan Rivers to be our lead guest on the new season of Comedians in Cars, and she was thrilled. Then we got a call saying she was going in for a medical procedure and needed to postpone." He continued: "I would have loved to have shown another side of her. I wanted to tell her how much I admire all she had accomplished, especially in the latter stages of her career. She was one of the greats. I'll miss her."
