The late, great Joan Rivers clearly leaned into her title as the "Queen of Comedy." Just check out her former Upper East Side abode.
Lavishly decked-out in what the comedienne once described as "Louis XIV meets Fred and Ginger" decor, the palatial penthouse spans three floors atop a pre-war limestone mansion just steps from Fifth Avenue, with two terraces overlooking Central Park.
Rivers first purchased the 11-room apartment way back in 1988. During her 28-year reign at the residence, she entertained countless A-listers, including Princess Diana, and threw over-the-top bashes in the ballroom. She even claimed to have hosted one unwanted guest - the ghost of the home's former occupant, Mrs. Spencer, apparently the niece of financier J.P Morgan.
The whole "being haunted" thing aside, the place is pretty much a dream. Wood-burning fireplaces, 23-foot-high ceilings, and dramatic reception rooms galore. No wonder it was purchased by an actual royal after Rivers' death.
However, the unnamed member of a Middle Eastern royal family has now put the home back on the market for a cool $38 million.
