    How old is she now?

    Edit:

    81, yeesh. Yea... I can't imagine she'll be with us much longer either way regardless, especially given how she's abused her body over the years.

    This is pretty sad to me. As Rivers aged, I got to where I really didn't much care to watch her, but when I was a kid and a teenager/young woman, I thought she was hilarious. At that time, she was considered pretty "ballsy" for a woman, and it used to both shock me, and make me laugh. Her sense of humor seemed to get more and more crass with time, or maybe it's just that I, myself, changed.

    Well in case there's a RIP thread for her later....and I do think she's funny...she has turned herself into a grotesque like many other celebrities with all the plastic surgery. I dont know what the surgery was for but even if not cosmetic, it was possibly fixing a past cosmetic procedure. It was a throat surgery.

    It's sad and personally I dont know what kind of disorder it is that enables these people to look in mirrors and think they look better? It's like anorexics that dont see what they really look like.

    I hope she's ok.

    Greetings, Gathomas88.

    She still looks very good at 81 years of age, though! Apparently something went wrong during an endoscopic procedure at a clinic, and she stopped breathing, but the news did not state what the problem was. With all the surgeries she's had over the years, and she has laughingly listed them publicly, perhaps her body had just had enough?

    I've always liked Joan Rivers - she's like the female Don Rickles, whom I also like a lot.

    Last I heard, she'd gone into cardiac arrest during an operation at a clinic but that she was in stable condition in hospital.

    I wish her all the best, but I'm guessing it'll take several bolts of lightning and some serious acts of God before Joan gives up her stay here on earth - she's one tough broad and we could use more like her.

    She used to be funny.

    Now she is just mean and nasty, just to grab headlines.

    Pathetic.

    Joan Rivers comes from the great era of comedians where the greats were mostly Jewish. She was a pioneer for stand up women comedians in her day. None of the greats at that time had to rely on four letter words to "try" to be funny. Ornery? yes. Sleazy or raunchy? No. Joan in the last decade has pushed the envelope on occasion but compared to the newcomers she's still PG rated.

    Red Buttons,
    Totie Fields,
    Joey Bishop,
    Milton Berle,
    Jan Murray,
    Danny Kaye,
    Henny Youngman,
    Buddy Hackett,
    Sid Caesar,
    Groucho Marx,
    Jackie Mason,
    Victor Borge,
    Woody Allen,
    Lenny Bruce,
    George Burns,
    Allan Sherman,
    Jerry Lewis,

    Peter Sellers,
    Carl Reiner,
    Shelley Berman,
    Gene Wilder,
    George Jessel,
    Alan King,
    Mel Brooks,
    Phil Silvers,
    Jack Carter,
    Rodney Dangerfield,
    Don Rickles,
    Jack Benny
    Mansel Rubenstein

    And Joan Rivers rounds out the best of the best.


    And there was not one single swear word in their comedy. Here are a few examples:

    * I just got back from a pleasure trip. I took my mother-in-law to the airport.

    * I've been in love with the same woman for 49 years! If my wife ever finds out, she'll kill me!

    * What are three words a woman never wants to hear when she's making love? "Honey, I'm home!"

    * Someone stole all my credit cards but I won't bereporting it. The thief spends
    less than my wife did.

    * We always hold hands. If I let go, she

    shops.

    * My wife and I went back to the hotel where we spent our wedding night; only this time I stayed in the bathroom and cried.

    * My wife and I went to a hotel where we got a waterbed. My wife called it the Dead Sea .

    * She was at the beauty shop for two hours. That was only for the estimate. She got a mudpack and looked great for two days.. Then the mud fell off.

    * The Doctor gave a man six months to live. The man couldn't pay his

    bill so the doctor gave him another six months.

    * The Doctor called Mrs. Cohen saying, "Mrs. Cohen, your check came back. " Mrs. Cohen answered, "So did my arthritis!"

    * Doctor:"You'll live to be 60!"
    Patient:"I am 60!"
    Doctor: "See! What did I tell you?"

    * Patient:"I have a ringing in my ears."

    Doctor:"Don't answer!"

    * A drunk was in front of a judge. The judge says, "You've been brought here for drinking."

    The drunk says "Okay, let's get started."

    * Why do Jewish divorces cost so much?
    They're worth it.

    The Harvard School of Medicine did a study of why Jewish women like Chinese food so much. The study revealed that this is due to the fact that Won
    Ton spelled backward is Not Now.

    There is a big controversy on the Jewish view of when life begins. In Jewish tradition, the fetus is not considered viable until it graduates from medical school.

    Q:Why don't Jewish mothers drink?

    A:Alcohol interferes with their suffering.
    .

    Q:Why do Jewish mothers make great parole officers?

    A:They never let anyone finish a sentence!

    A man called his mother in Florida ,

    "Mom, how are you?"

    " Not too good," said the mother. "I've been very weak."

    The son said, "Why are you so weak?" She said, "Because I haven't eaten in 38
    days."

    The son said, "That's terrible.

    Why haven't you eaten in 38 days?"

    The mother answered,"Because I didn't want my mouth to be filled with food if you should call."

    A Jewish boy comes home from school and tells his mother he has a part in the play. She asks,

    "What part is it?"

    The boy says, "I play the part of the Jewish husband."

    "The mother scowls and says, "Go back and tell the teacher you want a speaking part."

    Q:How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a light bulb?

    ASigh)"Don't bother. I'll sit in the dark. I don't want to be a nuisance to anybody."

    Short summary of every Jewish holiday:

    They tried to kill us. We won.
    Let's eat.

    Did you hear about the bum who walked up to a Jewish mother on the street and said, "Lady, I haven't eaten in three days."

    "Force yourself," she replied.

    Joan is 81. At 81, curtains could be any day. I hope she is resting comfortably and if she makes it through this, a great joke is just around the corner. Cheers.
