Melissa Rivers Officially Sues Clinic Over Joan's Death

Melissa Rivers is officially suing Yorkville Endocsopy over her mom Joan Rivers‘ untimely death last year.

“The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible,” Melissa says in the lawsuit (via TMZ). “Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better.”

Not only has Melissa sued the clinic, she has also sued her mother’s personal doctor Gwen Korovin as she should never have been allowed in the room where the procedure was performed.

“Had doctors acted as physicians for Joan Rivers instead of groupies, Joan Rivers would have been doing Fashion Police last week,” said one family lawyer Jeffrey Bloom (via NY Daily News).

Kathy Griffin's 'Fashion Police' Debut: Shouts Out Joan Rivers, Names Amal Clooney Her Worst Dressed - Watch Now!

Kathy Griffin made her Fashion Police debut last night and gave a shout out to the late host Joan Rivers on the air before the show started.

“Before I start making more enemies and burning new bridges, I want to thank my good friend,” Kathy said. “Joan, I know you are watching from heaven, but I am not afraid to bring the hammer down on anyone.”

Later in the show, Kathy named Amal Clooney in Dior as her worst dressed choice, specifically because she wore gloves with her gown.

“Yeah, she’s annoying,” Kathy said. “You heard me! Everybody run in fear! I thought it was weird she had those gloves that remind me of, like, a porn scene, where the guy goes home and there’s the naughty dishwasher and she only has the gloves.”

“I’m fascinated how we’re like, not supposed to make fun of her because she married the great George Clooney. Look, everybody’s on the table, George! Nobody’s safe, nobody gets a pass,” Kathy warned.

Watch a Fashion Police clip below where they name their best and worst dressed from the 2015 Golden Globes!
