We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts as we pray for her recovery,” Melissa said to E!

    something about this doesn’t make sense

    Joan, Joan what have you done to yourself??

    As abrasive as Joan can be for some people, I like her. I don’t think she really means any harm, she’s just doing her job. She’s been though a lot in her life and has always been a fighter. I’m glad she doing better. Melissa should have been more conservative with the plastic surgery, her face looks a mess. Joan knows her face is wrecked, you’d think her daughter would have learned a lesson from that.
