We caught up with Joan Rivers' daughter, Melissa Rivers — looking hot in a vibrant Herve Leger dress — on the red carpet for her mother's Comedy Central Roast (airing Aug. 9) and she sounded pretty sure her mom could handle whatever filthy insults were dished out during the show's Sunday night taping.

On to other things..

Melissa's got some shows in development and a brand new book coming out called "Life Lessons From the Red Carpet," about "Lessons I've learned by sitting back and watching the red carpet … and how to apply it to your own life."

We can hardly wait, can you?

More Joan Dish!
