Joan Rivers: Coma or comfortable?
This is a developing story tonight..
TMZ was the first to report that Joan Rivers stopped breathing during a throat surgery..
Tonight, the UK DAILY MAIL is running its own breaking news that Rivers has been placed in a medically induced coma.. her family, we are told in reports, anxiously await by her bedside.
But another news report from REUTERS simply says she is resting comfortably..
Rivers should be given privacy, as should her family.. This report is obviously newsworthy, but I hesitated linking it since …really… shouldn’t this be private for her and her close friends and relatives? I think so..
But she’s a star.. And she has never washed up, regardless of time or age.. She is ‘on’ all of the time. She was ‘on’ on Wednesday, where she performed standup for a small group..
I keep mentally coming back to this report, though, from the DAILY NEWS:
“She did a joke onstage, she goes, ‘I’m 81 — I could go at any moment,’” recounted Shade Rupe, 45, who attended the Wednesday night show at the Laurie Beechman Theatre
And now… a day later… she is in a hospital bed. In a coma.. Fate.. time.. timing..
The cruel joke of life..
