Funny woman Joan Rivers has plenty of experience going under the knife. But the outspoken comedian and fashion critic remains in the hospital one day after going into cardiac arrest during a routine visit to the doctor’s office.
81-year old Joan Rivers was placed in a medically induced coma after going into cardiac arrest in a doctor’s office during a routine visit. 911 was called and Joan is now in The Mount Sinai Hospital.
Daughter and professional sidekick to the legendary comic Melissa Rivers has flown from California to New York to be near her mom and issued a statement saying:
“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.”
Joan is a busy lady, as the host of “Fashion Police” on E! network, she also presides over an online talk show, “In Bed With Joan” and co-stars with her daughter on the WEtv reality show, “Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?”
In addition, Joan had performed live just 12 hours before her doctors visit, where event goers say she seemed to be in the best of health.
It’s unclear exactly how Joan is doing at this time, with her condition being named everything from critical to stable to resting comfortably. Hopefully Joan will make a full recovery and be back to her usual caustic banter in no time.
Joan is an open proponent of plastic surgery, having gone under the knife seemingly countless times. Over the past several decades, Joan has undergone numerous procedures which include numerous facelifts, a brow lift, cheek lift, eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), Botox injections, Professional Viagra online laser skin resurfacing, buy misoprostol chemical peels, and buy Ventolin no prescription Plavix buy breast augmentation, in addition to other procedures.
According to Joan, “I thinned my nose and raised the tip, had my eyes done, a full face-lift, liposuction, breast reduction, chin tucks, botox, collagen … I’m sure I’ve spent at least $80,000 over the years.”
Joan is such a fan of plastic surgery that she even encouraged her daughter Melissa to go under the knife at an early age. Melissa looks like she has undergone a nose job, cheek augmentation and possible browlift, although she has said that her mother’s constant procedures are a source of conflict for the couple.
Joan is well aware of her perception in the public eye and has even released a book advising others about plastic surgery. She tells a cautionary tale about liposuction as her own procedure wasn’t completely comfortable.
And while others may poke fun at her appearance, Joan always gets the last laugh when it comes to her own appearance, “I’ve had so much plastic surgery, when I die they will donate my body to Tupperware.”
The world is waiting for Joan to make a complete recovery and wait for the legend to return to her busy schedule as her daughter and grandson stand vigilantly by her side.
