Joan Rivers Dies in New York at 81

Joan Rivers Signs Copies Of "Diary Of A Mad Diva"

Jewish comedienne Joan Rivers, a fierce friend of Israel who made life a little scarier for badly dressed celebrities and showed the world women could host late night shows just like men, died in New York at age 81.

Rivers was hospitalized last week after going into cardiac arrest following a routine procedure. Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, told the press she died surrounded by family and close friends.

Rivers whose classic opener was “Can we talk?” remained harsh, acidic, raunchy and vibrant for decades, never giving an inch. And she continued to work the clubs as long as she had the strength to stand upright.

Have a sweet afterlife, Joan Alexandra Molinsky. Give our regards to Liz Taylor when you see her.
