joan rivers left out of in memoriam

During the Grammys on Sunday, February 8th, there was one pretty huge snub during the In Memoriam segment…

Joan Rivers! And she'd JUST won a Grammy that night for Best Spoken Word Album!

So, what was the deal? Why would they leave her out!

Well, according to the show's producer Ken Ehrlich, they cut her out of the remembrance because of the time limits imposed on the show!

However, don't get TOO angry just yet, his reasoning is PRETTY valid.

It was SUCH an intense night at the Grammys!

Sam Smith practically walked away with all of the Grammys he was nominated for — maybe they should've named this year's show Sam Smith's Grammys and everyone else who was nominated.

LOLz!

Totally kidding, but the Stay With Me singer is now up there with all of the greatest artists who took home all of the awards!

Congrats to all of the winners and those who were nominated!

Ch-ch-check out the complete winners list from the Grammys (below)!!

Joan Rivers Posthumously Wins Grammy Award For Best Spoken Word Album

| Filed under: Joan RiversGrammys

joan rivers grammy awards best spoken word album

A more deserving winner couldn't have been selected!

Joan Rivers may have passed away last year, but she's still winning awards.

The comedienne won the Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for Diary of a Mad Diva!

Her twelfth book's recording beat out James Franco's Actors Anonymous, Jimmy Carter's A Call to Action, John Waters' Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America, Elizabeth Warren's A Fighting Chance, and Gloria Gaynor's We Will Survive: True Stories of Encouragement, Inspiration and the Power of Song.

Many are missing Joan and her sharp sense of humor, so many should also be very pleased for the funny lady to be honored one more time.

Congrats, Joan!

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.

The lawsuit names five doctors as defendants, including the comedian's personal physician — Gwen Korovin — for being in the surgery room unpermitted, as well as another who allegedly took cellphone pics during the operation.

In a statement released shortly after the suit was filed, Melissa explains her decision to press charges.

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!

[ Video: Keshia Knight Pulliam Talks Her Bill Cosby-Related Elimination From Celebrity Apprentice! ]

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)!!!
