    Joan Rivers, Comedy Legend and TV Host, Dies at 81

    Joan Rivers, Comedy Legend and TV Host, Dies at 81 - NBC News

    Joan Rivers, a pioneering female stand-up comic and the queen of "Can We Talk?" gossip, has died. She was 81.

    Rivers was undergoing surgery on her vocal cords at a clinic in New York City on Aug. 28 when she stopped breathing and had to be transported to Mount Sinai Hospital. Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, and her 13-year-old grandson, Cooper, who lived with her in Malibu, Calif., rushed to her bedside.

    Sadly, another one of our great entertainers has passed away.

    RIP Joan.

    She had a good run and a long life. Certainly one of the premier female comics of the last 50 years. RIP
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    At least she didn't have any protracted suffering. I think this looking to blame someone, like the clinic that done her surgery, is ridiculous. Life happens.

    I didn't care for her, but those who did loved her tons. The first question that comes to mind considering her rep is whether she initially went to the clinic for more plastic surgery.

    Yeah - at 81 any simple procedure can go sideways. The blame game at 81 years old is a bit silly.

    I just read earlier today that she was "resting comfortably"!

    She was a total wise ass.....I kind of liked that about her!

    I wasn't always wild about her style, but I did like her honesty. And she did throw out a good zinger now and then.

    People don't realize how fragile the human body is period, especially in the senior years.
