She was only 32 years old
Very, very sad news to pass along today … Diem Brown, one of the most beloved stars of MTV‘s Real World/Road Rules Challenge, lost her battle with cancer and has died. As you fans of the Real World/Road Rules Challenge may know, Diem was first diagnosed with ovarian cancer at the age of 23 and she successfully battled the disease until it returned in 2012. Again, Diem was able to fight off the disease and live a pain-free life again … until she found out in August that the cancer had returned to her stomach and colon. Diem had been fighting as hard as she could for the past couple of months but, sadly, she succumbed to the disease. She was only 32 years old. More »

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).

LOL No, really!
Despite the fact that comic Joan Rivers died a few weeks ago, she managed to update her official Facebook profile today to endorse the release of Apple‘s iPhone 6. It was looks to be a post that was scheduled to go live weeks ago, Joan fully endorses the release of the newest Apple iPhone … which you can read below. The post was taken down shortly after it went live but not before screenshots were saved and disseminated online. It would appear that Joan has gotten the last laugh after all. More »

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 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 »

Joan's funeral will take place today
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.
Earlier this week we saw a funny cartoon published in The New Yorker magazine that poked a bit of fun at the celebrity nude photos leak that happened last weekend. Today we get to see a new New Yorker cartoon that pays brilliant homage to the late Joan Rivers. Both cartoons were drawn by the same artist so chances are if you liked the earlier cartoon, you will probably like this cartoon as well. Even if you disliked the earlier one, I think you’ll get a kick and a little laugh out of this cartoon for Joan. More »
