The Medical Examiner Has Revealed Joan River’s Official Cause Of Death

Low Blood Oxygen

Last month it was speculated that Joan Rivers may have died due to a screw-up at the medical clinic where she was being treated for a throat procedure. Today we learn from the medical examiner the official cause of death. According to the final report released by the medical examiner, Joan‘s death came about due to low blood oxygen to her brain while she was under Propofol sedation. The report goes on to list “predictable complications” as her cause of death, which essentially means her death came from a known risk that occurs whenever any patient is sedated during a medical procedure (i.e. not a homicide).

Joan Rivers’s Doctor Reportedly Took A Selfie With Her While She Was Unconscious [UPDATE]

He also may have killed her with an unauthorized biopsy

Ugh. New details are starting to emerge from the investigation into the death of Joan Rivers who, as you may know, passed away about a week after she suffered cardiac arrest while she underwent an outpatient medical procedure on her throat at a NYC medical center. It is being reported today that the doctor who performed the throat procedure on her not only took a selfie photo with Joan‘s unconscious body but also performed an unauthorized biopsy that she did NOT sign off on, which may have led to her eventual death. If any of this is true, it would be outrageous to know that Joan Rivers died as a result of such gross unprofessionalism :( More »

Lindsay Lohan Says She Handled Whitney Houston’s Dead Body, The County Morgue Says She’s Lying

Lindsay wouldn't exploit a dead woman for press, would she?

Lindsay Lohan gave an interview recently where she recounted an astounding story from her time a few years ago when she was forced to do community service at the LA County Morgue as punishment for one of her numerous crimes. Lindsay maintained that she was forced to handle the dead body of Whitney Houston as part of her community service. An official from the LA County Morgue has come out with a statement denying that Lindsay did any such thing, revealing that she flat out lied about having access to Houston‘s dead body. Is it really possible that Lindsay Lohan would LIE about something so terrible just for a little press? More »

Watch: Melissa Rivers & Son Cooper Say A Final Farewell To Joan Rivers

Joan's funeral will take place today
Goodbye, Joan

A couple of days ago we learned that the funeral of Joan Rivers will take place today in NYC just a few days after the legendary comedienne passed away due to complications she suffered during a throat procedure she underwent in a medical center a little over a week ago. Yesterday, Joan‘s daughter and grandson, Melissa Rivers and Cooper, said their final farewells as Joan‘s casket was carried outside the Frank E. Campbell Funeral Home on NYC’s Upper East Side. Joan Rivers lived her life so publicly, openly welcoming everyone into her life, that it seems fitting that her final farewell be as public as possible. Her funeral today will be made up of a Who’s Who of the Entertainment world and then, she will be gone from this earth forever.

#ThrowbackThursday: Joan Rivers On ‘The Carol Burnett Show’ Was Amazing

1974
The incomparable Joan

Well, the Beyoncé birthday tribute I was planning is going to have to wait because we lost one of my favorite comedians today. Joan Rivers had a style that I always, always admired. She made me laugh, and she made me cringe. She made me feel bad for laughing, but in that awesome way where—no matter how bad I felt—I couldn’t stop. As someone who watches E! Fashion Police regularly, I can honestly say that I will miss her. Like Trent said earlier, “she was a comic genius and a bonafide trailblazer”—Rivers had been doing this for so long. Check out an amazing clip above from her 1974 appearance on The Carol Burnett Show.
