Melissa Rivers: What’s In My Bag? (Exclusive)

Melissa Rivers spilled about how she got her new Khaite tote bag while also spilling its contents.

“My fiancé [Steve Mitchel] gave it to me, but let’s just say he had help,” Rivers, 55, exclusively told Us Weekly. “I saw it in a store that I go to all the time. I told my … do we call them sales associates? Now I call her Flor. I said to Flor, ‘I want this. Text Steve.’ So, he follows instructions. That’s really good.”

Inside of her new purse, Rivers carries some smaller bags, including a velvet Christian Dior makeup pouch.

“This came with their Christmas set,” she noted, proceeding to show Us her favorite lip gloss, Chanel’s Rouge Coco Gloss in shade 792, and other makeup goodies. “[The gloss is] plain, it just kind of enhances what color you have on.”
