Joan Rivers reportedly ditched the coffee and enjoyed some Chardonnay in her Starbucks cup while filming her show Fashion Police. Well, this news makes me love Joan even more.

Appearing on the latest episode of the PEOPLE in the ’90s podcast, Margaret Cho recalled working with the late comedian on the E! show Fashion Police after award shows.

“We would get in at like 4 in the morning and she would already be there,” Cho recalled, adding that they had to work “really weird” hours in order to cover award shows from the night before.

“Sometimes what she would do is she would take her giant Starbucks cup and then empty it, and fill it with Chardonnay, and just drink her Chardonnay out of her Starbucks cup, which I thought was genius,” she added.

Cho added that after they would finish filming, the co-hosts would stick around to hang out with Rivers.

“We would just talk about how she was part of British Hollywood. Edgar [Rosenberg], her late husband, was British and he was a producer,” Cho said. “They would have Lawrence Olivier over for dinner and so she had all of the old stars over her house. She would host these parties that would just get crazy.”

Looking back at her experience on Fashion Police, Cho describes working alongside Rivers, who died at age 81 in 2014, as some of her “favorite times.”

“She loved doing Fashion Police and she was really excited about it. I think she was really influential on social media because it made the bridge between show business and real people possible,” Cho says.
