It was starting to look up but sadly, we must report that Joan Rivers has passed away. The comedienne/ fashion guru/ TV star was undergoing a routine throat procedure when she stopped breathing and had a heart attack. She was rushed to Cedars Sinai Medical Center where she was joined by daughter Melissa and grandson Cooper.
Rivers was in ICU and then placed in a medically induced coma while Melissa just asked for fans and friends to pray. The icon was still very busy in what were to be her last days as she is a co-host on E!'s "Fashion Police" and was also on the road touring. Ken Baker of E! was choked up as the channel just reported her passing. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Rivers family during this very difficult time. I am ever so happy that I was able to enjoy her commentary, wit and sense of humor growing up via my television. Stay tuned as we will keep you updated.
