WE tv issued a press release to announce Melissa's new love interest and its tie-in to WE's hit show, Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best.
"While taping an episode for season three of WE tv’s hit series, “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?” premiering on Saturday, February 23 at 9PM ET/PT, Melissa Rivers was all smiles while ice-skating alongside her new rumored love interest, whom she met in London last month (again, while taping an upcoming episode), British actor, Duncan Mais at the Wollman rink in NYC the day before Thanksgiving. Last season, the reality show captured the aftermath of Melissa’s heartbreak, as she broke down in her mother’s arms [Joan Rivers] as she tried to cope with the shocking news of her then-boyfriend's [Jason Zimmerman] double life. Come to find out, Duncan’s mother was one of the first girls to work for Playboy in the UK – and she eventually became a Bunny Recruitment Officer. Will her mother approve? Viewers will have to tune-in this season to find out!"
Melissa Rivers, 44 is the producer of E!'s Fashion Police that stars her mother Joan Rivers and panel members Kelly Osbourne, Giuliana Rancic and stylist George Kotsiopoulos.
