Melissa Rivers Releases Statement on Mom Joan's Condition

Melissa Rivers is speaking out to update her mom Joan Rivers‘ fans on her condition after being hospitalized following complications from an outpatient procedure on Thursday (August 28) in New York City.

“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers,” the 47-year-old television personality said in a statement.

There was a report earlier in the evening that Joan was placed in a medically induced coma and that she would be taken out of it in a few days, though this has not yet been confirmed.

We wish Joan and her family the best during this scary time!

    When you have a been deprived of oxygen to the brain that is when they put you in a induced coma to give the brain time to rest, she is on life support , too so it will bw I treating to see what happens, how a melissa will handle everything,, interesting note that her publicist was in her room.
    Why would to Joqn go to a doctor that would not know hoot revive her.

    What kind of place is this? To get throat surgery should be done in a hospital!

    i wish her well, but am not optimistic :-( they put my dad in a medically induced coma and he died three days later. it’s not a good thing, it means you are in serious danger and it might save your life, but often does not :-(

    What evil, hateful words spew from your lips. Everyone is entitled to express their political opinions. Expressing those opinions is no cause for your horrific response. You, and those like you, are the reason there will never be peace in the Middle East or in other war ravaged area of the world. …Joan, I love your ground breaking comedy. You put female comedians on the map in what was once a male dominated part of the entertainment industry. I wish you and your daughter the best and hope you use the same strength you have used over the years to prevail and to recover….As for these hateful comments; intelligent and caring people should speak out with kindness to counteract this vitriol.

    CaSa Says:

    The “YOU” I referred to in my post are the people stating Joan Rivers, or anyone who expresses an opinion with which “THEY” disagree, deserve to suffer……I do not wish for anyone to misunderstand and think I was speaking of Joan. WE ARE AMERICANS and enjoy the freedom of expression.
