A TV natural since day one, Melissa Rivers has starred and worked for some of the small screen’s highest-rated channels. She served as a producer for the E! Network and hosted two of the channel’s beloved specials, Oh Baby! Melissa’s Guide to Pregnancy and Oh Toddler! Surviving the Early Years. After nine years, Rivers left E! Entertainment Television to explore other avenues. Her E! experience, along with her previous stints on CBS This Morning and MTV’s Hangin’ With MTV, led to her current gig as host of the TV Guide Channel’s event programming. Among her many accomplishments, she is also a PETA spokesperson for their “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign, co-hosts red carpet pre-award shows, hosts various fashion specials for the TV Guide Channel, and starred in her own reality series, I’m a Celebrity! Get Me Out of Here! where she won second place. Aside from taking over the tube, Rivers’ hobbies include spending time with her son and lending a hand to charitable organizations like Suicide Survivors, Heal the Bay, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
