Earlier today, Melissa Rivers filed a lawsuit against Yorkville Endoscopy and blames its doctors for the death of her mother, Joan Rivers.

The 47-year-old is accusing the clinic of medical malpractice, alleging that they didn't perform a tracheotomy during the 20 minutes where doctors tried to revive Joan back to life.

Watch Joan Rivers' First Appearance On Celebrity Apprentice Following Her Untimely Death

This really makes us miss seeing her on TV.

Joan Rivers has been gone for about four months now, but that doesn't mean she's been forgotten.

That's because the comedienne had her first guest appearance on this season of The Celebrity Apprentice on Monday night!

Joan won Donald Trump's reality show back in 2009, so she filmed some episodes before her death as a guest judge; the second of which is scheduled to air in February.

While it was amazing to see her having fun in the boardroom, we can't help but feel that the NBC competition series edited too much of her personality away in favor of being 'nice' and took away the humor that could have been a real tribute.

The video clip is a tad spoilery, but we made sure to not give the whole episode away.

Ch-ch-check out the first of Joan's post-mortem TV appearances (above)!!!
