Sad news for star-gazers today…we lost Joan Rivers.
According to reports, Rivers passed away during an operation after going into cardiac arrest. She was admitted to Mt. Sinai Hospital earlier this week leading up to her death today at 1:17 PM.
While I didn’t always agree with Rivers and oftentimes I didn’t pay much attention to her doings, Joan Rivers was absolutely important in influencing in the world of women’s comedy. She brought us to a completely different area from a comedy standpoint, a fashion standpoint, just all around important to our culture.
I’ll say it right now, the most important thing I will remember her for is the portrayal of Dot Matrix in Mel Brooks’ Spaceballs. What a great film.
Joan Rivers, you will be missed.
