Melissa released a statement on Wednesday stating:
“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.”
Now we may be assuming that Joan is getting better and we hope our assumption is correct, but CelebNMusic247.com realized that Joan’s daughter did not reveal if the change in location indicates an improvement in her mother’s condition, or whether the 81-year-old comedy legend remains on life support.
Here is what PageSix is reporting on Joan Rivers condition in the hospital.
Rivers had been on life support since an outpatient throat procedure that went wrong last week.
The pioneering funnywoman’s heart stopped while under anesthesia for the minor procedure.
Sources have said that Rivers is indeed improving, though slowly. The daughter has been at her mother’s side since flying in from Los Angeles upon hearing of what happened. Mt. Sinai and Rivers’ representatives did not immediately respond to requests for clarification.
Meanwhile, there’s bad news waiting on the homefront for the pioneering funny woman!
A Manhattan judge rejected Rivers’ request to toss a $15 million lawsuit brought by her equally tart-tongued downstairs neighbor, instead approving a sealed settlement.
Socialite Elizabeth Hazan lives in a $2 million condo below Rivers’ $30?million triplex penthouse in the Spencer mansion on East 62nd Street and Fifth Avenue.
Hazan had accused Rivers, the condo board’s president, of being a bully by locking Hazan out when Hazan fell $200,000 behind on common charges.
