Joan Rivers On Life Support, Family Confirms; Fashion Police Taping Cancelled

| Filed under: Joan RiversHealth

joan rivers life support

Though we're sad to do it, we can now confirm that Joan Rivers is still on life support.

Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, made the news official in a statement on Tuesday, which read:

"On behalf of my mother and our family, we are extremely grateful for all the love and support we've received. At this time she does remain on life support. I know my mother would be overwhelmed by the continued outpouring of kindness and I want to thank everyone for keeping us in their prayers."

As we've previously discussed, the 81-year-old's health crisis began on August 28th, when she quit breathing during throat surgery.

In light of the situation, this week's scheduled taping of Fashion Police has been cancelled.

All of our thoughts and prayers are being sent to Joan and her family at this time.

    so I'm no doctor, but would someone who knows the answer mind explaining how someone can be so close to death from a procedure as this one? Did they nik something, like an artery? Prayers go out to her family.

    very, very doubtful she'll ever come out of this. I can't stand the woman, she's become so vile and awful, but I can't wish her death. however, I hope if she's brain dead, they release her. no one should live like that. not even joan rivers.

    Kelly - any surgery is very risky when older, even something simple. and although people of any age can succumb to 'routine' surgeries, the elderly do so even more. Just being under sedation can cause issues like this to all, especially the elderly. she probably should've been in a hospital for this given that she's 81. Her heart stopped as did her respiratory system. she basically died on the table and was brought back. We may never know what exactly went wrong. But again, at 81, she should've done this in a hospital. I don't like the woman at all, but this is a shitty way to go out.

    She's a bit much sometimes but I do like her. She might have gotten all these surgeries but at least she's honest and has a sense of humour about it. I hope she'll be able to make a full recovery from this, but given that she's 81, I highly doubt she will.

    Did this woman have any redeeming qualities….its had to wish her well when she wished death on innocent people….

    Re: texasannie – Haven't read that…she could also have arrested in post-op and not had air until someone noticed. Have the details been released?

    So much for Kelly Osbourne's career. Let's see, failed at music, failed at acting, Fashion Bullies soon to be cancelled. All that's left for the little piggie is to fade into complete obscurity.

    Re: Kelly – Anesthesia suppresses the body's system which can sometimes led to them shutting down. This happened to her cardiovascular and respiratory systems.

    Re: texasannie – thank you for your reply. agreed, any surgery is risky, I just didn't think a throat procedure would put her in such a bad place!I don't like her either, but you're right- still a shitty way to go. Being her age, she really did not have more than about 10 years or so anyways if she was lucky. Wish she could have gone peacefully though, not that she died yet but when you hear life support, the odds are slim. Thanks again!

    Even though I think Joan Rivers is a total witch, nobody deserves to be in such a condition. I, too, am very doubtful that Joan will come out of this alive. It now seems as if she is clinging to life with just a machine supporting what remains of her life here on Earth. It is up to the Lord himself to decide Joan's fate at this point.
