Rivers, the daughter of the late comedy icon, expressed her feelings about the Emmy-winning Amazon series Thursday in an interview on the Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef podcast. "I understand both sides. I'm sure they were worried because, well also, the world is so litigious, but I wish I had gotten a note saying, 'Your mother was one of the inspirations for this, and we hope you enjoy it and here's a T-shirt," said Rivers, according to People. "Here's a link to the first episode, to the pilot,' you know? Not even saying like, it's completely her, but to say she was one of our inspirations. And because of that, I felt so violated in a weird way, and everybody's saying, 'Oh, it's Joan, it's Joan, it's Joan, it's Joan' and yet I never hear from the people that make it or the actors or anything saying, 'Hey, she was one of my inspirations.'" Rivers noted that Miriam Maisel is "clearly a compilation" of the female comics of the 1950s and 1960s — "a lot of my mom, but clearly a compilation of a lot of the women of the era."
