    Yeah, and I'm surprised it was just against the clinic's policy. That should be a damned LAW!! I mean, the patient is completely unconscious and someone takes a pic with her?? Tacky, tacky, tacky and should be illegal as well.

    It Looks Like Kathy Griffin Will Replace Joan Rivers As The Host Of Fashion Police




    I know – “replace” is entirely the wrong word; nobody could ever replace the exquisite insult-hissing showstopper that was Joan Rivers. Maybe “keep her seat warm until she decides to return from beyond the grave as a gorgeous ageless ghost to haunt the tragic fashion disasters of awards season” is a better word. And according to TMZ, that person replacing the seat left vacant by Joan on Fashion Police is going to be sunset-colored comedian Kathy Griffin.

    A source connected with the show (the makeup artist in charge of transforming Giuliana Rancic from a grasshopper to a human-looking grasshopper, perhaps) has confirmed to TMZ that it’s a done deal and Kathy will be joining Giuliana, the enchanted come-to-life bag of Dolly Mix Kelly Osbourne, and Melissa Rivers. No word on whether George Kotsiopoulos will also be coming back or if he’s currently crying into a pile of tasteful $79.99 QVC wrap dresses (they’re always wrap dresses and they’re always $79.99). The source also says that Fashion Police will no longer be a weekly show, and instead will air it as a special program to coincide with big events, like the Academy Awards.

    I’m sure there are 1,284,365 Joan Rangers screaming “NO! TERRIBLE CHOICE!” at the top of their lungs while clutching their favorite Joan Rivers Classics Collection statement necklace, but I’m glad they chose Kathy. Kathy once tried to blow Anderson Cooper on live TV and isn’t afraid to dress like a near-sighted Daytona Beach truck stop stripper. A messy middle-aged trick who doesn’t give a fuck? Come on, it’s what Joan would have wanted.

    Kathy's face makes Joan's look natural.

    I don't know if I really believe this. But I kind of hope it's true. Kathy can put on a face and get along with anybody while around them if she has to. Then talk shit about it later. It might make the show worth watching.

    On Entertainment Tonight, they said it wasn't going to be a weekly show anymore. Just a red carpet show. Still, it will never be as funny.

    I think it was a good choice. Kathy is really the only comedian comparable to Joan. Guliana can suck it. She provides nothing to the show and can be replaced by anyone.

    Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa talks about auctioning off mother's jewelry and art | Daily Mail Online

    'It's bittersweet': Joan Rivers' daughter Melissa, 48, talks selling her mother's jewelry and living with grief... after 'eight figure' lawsuit settlement

    By Heidi Parker For Dailymail.com
    Published: 11:20 EST, 13 May 2016 | Updated: 12:12 EST, 13 May 2016

    It's been a year and a half since Joan Rivers died.

    And a lot of changes have taken place since then, changes daughter Melissa told Closer Weekly were 'bittersweet.' This includes the sale of the comedienne's $28m Manhattan apartment as well as the Christie's auction of Joan's art, jewelry and clothes that will take place from June 16 until the 23rd.
    This interview comes on the heels of the Rivers family reportedly being awarded 'eight figures' during a settlement from the lawsuit against doctors blamed for the star's death. Joan was having a routine throat procedure at a New York clinic when she died.

    Still hard: Melissa Rivers told Closer Weekly that the death of her mother Joan has been 'bittersweet'; here they are seen at the Golden Globe Awards in 2005

    'There's been a lot of change, it's very bittersweet,' said the LA resident. 'The most important thing that I've taken away is a bit more faith in my own strength.'
    The Fashion Police star was plugging her memoir The Book Of Joan, which is now out in paperback.
    Melissa - who dates talent agent Mark Rousso - also said the hardest part about losing her mother is the 'true acceptance that she is gone.'

    She added: 'It catches up with you when you least expect it.'

    As far as the Christie's sale, Melissa said it would be 'big.'
    On Christie's website it is stated the upcoming auction in New York 'will encompass the breadth of the late entertainer’s exceptional and eclectic taste, including decorative arts, paintings, fine French furniture and Fabergé.'

    Costumes by Bob Mackie, jewelry from Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels and Harry Winston and the Edouard Vuillard painting Dans L'Atelier are included.
    And the loss has also touched her son Cooper, 15, hard.
    'Last year he said, "Nothing will ever be good again." I said 'You're wrong!" Things will never be the same, but that doesn't mean they can't be great.'
    She added: 'The most important thing I can do is be a good parent, raising a person who has the values that our family believed in. A lot of it was philanthropy and giving back, and instilling in [Cooper] that no one is really entitled to anything.'

    An event: The Christie's auction of Joan's art, jewelry and clothes that will take place from June 16 until the 23rd

    Rivers sued Yorkville Endoscopy after her mother lost consciousness at the clinic in August 2014. She never awoke and died a week later at the age of 81.
    Melissa - Rivers' only child - said the settlement would ensure those to blame for her mother's death 'have accepted responsibility for their actions'.
    The case was filed in January 2015 and attorneys for the Rivers family confirmed it had been settled on Thursday.

    Her exclusive: Melissa talked to Closer Weekly

    A source told TMZ that an eight-figure settlement had been reached, but was not specific on the sum and this has not been confirmed.
    The legendary comedienne died of brain damage due to a lack of oxygen after she stopped breathing during an endoscopy at the clinic, a medical examiner found.
    Rivers was rushed to nearby Mount Sinai hospital in a coma, where she was put on life support. However, she never regained consciousness and passed away a week later.
    Her death was classified as a therapeutic complication.
    A federal investigation found that the clinic made several errors, including failing to keep proper medication records and snapping cell phone photos of Rivers while she was unconscious in the operating room.
    The probe into the clinic also discovered that it failed to get informed consent for every procedure performed on Rivers and failed to record her weight before sedating her.
    In the lawsuit, Melissa said 'the level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior' at the clinic was 'shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible'.
    She also claimed doctors conducted an unauthorized exam of her mother's vocal chords and windpipe, leading to a laryngospasm.
    During the spasm, Rivers' throat seized up and deprived her brain of oxygen, the suit said.

    But despite the star's vital signs showing clear symptoms of distress, doctors decided to continue with the laryngoscopy, causing Rivers to ultimately suffer a heart attack and irreversible brain damage, the court documents stated.
    Melissa's attorneys said on Thursday that the family want people to focus on Rivers' legacy, not her death and the subsequent lawsuit.
    A spokesman for Yorkville Endoscopy clinic said: 'Our thoughts and prayers continue to go out to the Rivers family.
    'We remain committed to providing quality, compassionate healthcare services that meet the needs of our patients, their families and the community.'

    My 18 year old son (whose maturity level is more in keeping with a younger teen due to his challenges with Asperger's) is terribly close to my parents. During his gap year he has been spending a great deal of time with them trying to help out my mother whose physical health is fragile and whose mental health is even worse. She was recently diagnosed with dementia and is constantly very depressed. She really perks up only when he is around. I absolutely dread the day we lose her (or my father) because as hard as it will be for me (I adore them), it will be that much worse for my son. When I read what Joan's grandson said it just about broke my heart.

    Finally, Alex Jones Explains Why Michelle Obama Murdered Joan Rivers


    Remember when Michelle Obama murdered Joan Rivers a few years ago? Neither do we. But Infowarrior king Alex Jones sure does. And as always, he’s more than happy to offer the answers we seek: Because she revealed FLOTUS’s secret penis to the world, Joan Rivers had to die.


    For those unfamiliar with the world as seen through the eyes of alt-right conspiracy theorists, it’s common knowledge that Michelle Obama, wife to President Barack Obama, is actually a transgender woman. Joan Rivers then joked about this a few months before her (all too convenient) death.


    Now, prompted by the negative response to a recent cartoon comparing the First Lady to Melania Trump, Alex Jones decided to hit us with the truth:



    Don’t forget, the famous comedian Joan Rivers said, “Of course everyone knows she’s a tranny.” ’ She’s dead serious: “Yeah, she’s a man.” Deader than a doornail in a routine operation—where, basically, she had fire poured down her throat and was a fire-breathing goblin.


    [evil voice] Dead on arrival. Shoot your mouth off, honey. You will die. Mua ha ha ha. Liberal. Ha ha ha ha.


    Jones goes on to call out George Clooney for being a women-enslaving maggot before finally returning to the topic at hand, saying, “I mean, I used to laugh at this stuff, but man—it’s all about rubbing our noses in it. And I think it’s all an arranged marriage. It’s all completely fake, and it’s this big sick joke because he’s obsessed with transgender. It’s like some weird cult or something. I think Michelle Obama is a man.” But does Jones really, trulybelieve the things he’s saying?


    “I really do. I really do. I believe it.”


    Well, that settles that.
