A few days ago, there were reports that doctors were bringing Joan Rivers out of the medically induced coma they put her in and her family was hoping that she’d wake up and curse all of their bitch asses out for making her wear a hospital gown that wasn’t made by Chanel, lined with fur and embedded with jewels from her QVC collection. But yesterday, Melissa Rivers issued a statement saying that her mom was still on life support and today, she issued another statement on Facebook saying that her mom has been moved out of ICU and into a private room at Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC:
“My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable. Thank you for your continued support.”
Melissa has kept her lips all the way shut about her mom’s current condition, but a source tells E! that Joan is getting better and all of those reports that claim she’ll soon be wrestling Elizabeth Taylor in the afterworld are not true.
Award show season starts up again in a few months and if Joan isn’t around for it, Fashion Police will be nothing but Ghouliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Iforgothislastname sitting around while saying to each other, “Well…I thought she looked nice.” So, somebody get Kathy Griffin and tell her to return the favor and slap Joan awake.
