Joan Rivers, Joan Rivers Beauty

E! Networks;

She may have turned 80 on Saturday, but age definitely hasn't slowed down Joan Rivers or her sense of humor.

We recently caught up with the Fashion Police host in the days leading up to her landmark birthday to get her to take on everything from how she planned to celebrate to how she stays active at an age where most people retire.

She credits her busy work schedule with genuinely loving "every part of the business," whether writing, performing or interviewing guests, like funny lady Margaret Cho

"Margaret Cho gave me a Korean recipe for dog!" Rivers said. "I said to her, ‘Do you have a recipe?' and she gave me the recipe."

Of course, Rivers, a dog lover who has adopted rescue dogs in the past, was quick to bring up one of her own prized pups when recalling Cho's, er, tip.

"Well, I have one dog that is aging—he is 13. And he is looking tasty! It is very, very, in a way…American Indian," she said. "Putting him back in me, spirit back in me. The best thing about dog is, on Weight Watchers, it's only 3 points."

Well, OK then.

Tune in to Fashion Police on Fridays at 10 p.m., only on E!
