she's just -- i don't think it will do her justice. >> there's no denying that joan rivers was a trailblazer. cynthia mcfadden takes a look at how she made history. >> can we talk? she was a tramp. >> reporter: even her biggest fans would agree, not everyone loved joan rivers. >> of as good girl. >> reporter: while she could turn the joke on herself. >> i went into -- what have you got to go with this suit? she gave me a bottle of cheap wine. >> reporter: often vulgar, take no prisoners approach. >> gwyneth paltrow, the woman's most beautiful woman. voted on by stevie wonder. >> reporter: a career lasting more than 50 years. she was, however, the first. first woman to host a late night show. first woman to take on guys in hard-hitting standup. >> her style was bold. really bold. willing to say anything. willing to do edgy material. that was not expected out of a
