The family of 81-year-old legendary comedienne Joan Rivers’ “remain hopeful” despite reported concerns from doctors that her condition will not improve.  As we previously reported, the famed ‘Fashion Police’ hostess was rushed to Mount Sinai hospital after going into cardiac arrest during a throat procedure.  Shortly thereafter she was placed on life support.

Amidst growing rallied support from fellow celebrities and fans, her daughter, Melissa Rivers, took to the net to thank the masses for their encouragement:

“I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”

Newly surfaced reports indicate, however, that the funnywoman’s care team is not as hopeful about recovery as Melissa is:

Via NY Daily News:

“[Melissa] is reportedly “in denial” over the seriousness of her mother’s condition.

‘She still thinks everything is going to be OK. She is refusing to admit that a world might exist without her mother in it,’ a source close to the Rivers family told the Daily News Saturday.  ‘Others that are close to Joan are starting to realize that the outcome they want is very unlikely.’ “

Multiple sources indicate that the decision to continue or discontinue Joan’s life support will be made in the coming days.  Our prayers are with her family.

    It is a sad, unfortunate thing, but we all have to die. She lived an amazing life; if she recovers God bless, but if not, let us remember her for all that she was.

    Po’Thang! Well, Joan is 80+ years old & stay getting surgery. This is what happens when you always under the knife. But, this time she NEEDED the surgery but did not wake up. She lived long enough…

    Also, I hope this brings an end to that disgusting show called “Fashion Police”. Where they do nothing but JUDGE JUDGE JUDGE people. BYE

    RIP Joan Rivers. We all DIE, get over it.

    OMG, some of you people should be ashamed of yourself, this is a human life we are talking about, someone’s mother, grandmother, friend….. I wonder how you would feel if people started talking trash about your family? I feel sick that you think it’s okay to say s**t like that. You are all mighty big behind a keyboard with aliases keeping your identity hidden, but truth be known you are just bullies…. And I can’t with you all. Makes me f***ing sick. Also why make the post all about others, you think the stars that you are staning for would want to read this? You are not fans at all…. Just sad individuals trying to make something out of nothing. Have some god damn RESPECT.

    I feel sorry for her family, imagine going through what they are and having to read s**t like this. I hope that Joan makes a full recovery, and if not then it was her time to go .

    I swear, some of you have no moral compass and are just rotten to your inner core. You’ll get yours, believe that.

  19. Dem Lessors August 31, 2014

    She had a good run tho, I don’t want to live past 80 and be old and ugly. So maybe it’s not a bad thing if they flip off the switch. Death is a sad subject but as mentioned before it going to happen regardless. Thoughts are with her family.

  20. yasssssssssss B**** August 31, 2014

    hopefully she gets through this

  21. pff August 31, 2014

  23. deeright1 August 31, 2014

    Well the comments she made in the past were cruel, are we supposed to just forget what she has said about otgeres? She has talked about Whitney Houston in her death and Michael Jackson, now its her turn. ..I don’t feel bad the old witch is dying goodbye Joan Rivers, you will be remembered for the mean nasty hateful things you said about othets…Did she do anything good?????

  24. navy September 1, 2014

    This woman drag every body including people dying in gaza but the worstvof it all is say that rihanna forehead is bigger than jfk airport. I dont know wheather to feel sorry for her or not. She also said the world will be a a better place for kids since michael jackson is dead. Calling obama gay and mitchelle a t*****. Theis woman spit venom with her mouth just to keep her career going. Nasty woman!!!

  25. george September 5, 2014

    She will be missed. I wonder how someone who was in her late 40s when I was born got to entertain me so much. I’m close to 30 now. She will be missed.
