We’re saying prayers for QVC Queen Joan Rivers, who remained at Mount Sinai Hospital in Manhattan Friday.
Rivers has been placed in a medically induced coma after a near-death incident Thursday. The comic was undergoing a treatment on her throat at en endoscopy center in the Yorkville section of Manhattan when her heart stopped.
She was rushed to Mount Sinai, where her daughter Melissa is now at her side. It’s unclear if, or for how long, Rivers’ brain was deprived of oxygen when she underwent cardiac arrest.
Ironically, the night before her medical emergency Rivers was performing and joked that she “go” any minute now.
She was scheduled to perform in our home state of New Jersey tonight, in Red Bank, but obviously that gig was cancelled.
