I never liked her after she insulted Johny Carson. Then I saw her on Celebrity Apprentice. I liked her then.

And she’s recently made pro-Israel statements.

Hope her doctors weren’t Palis.

I don’t like her. A few good statements are meaningless, especially when she likely supports the anti-Israel President and party. And she is an obnoxious, lefty too.

It may have been being done at an outpatient clinic....................I had three operations in 2008, two of which were done in small outpatient surgical centers. Cheaper than a full hospital..............

Just speculating, but maybe she had her procedure done at an outpatient surgery center not attached to a hospital.

Maybe it was another plastic surgery procedure and they’re just lying about the vocal cord.

Or maybe an abortion. /sarc

Her endless vagina “jokes” are boring, but have to give credit for her energy & drive at 80+ years, plus her consistent hammering of celebutards.

I wish her all the best with a quick recovery.

Was probably in for a vocal chord upgrade, with transplants from Harvey Fierstein

Johnny Carson probably wasn’t the person you thought he was.

Joan Rivers
Stops Breathing During Surgery
(Update: Critical Condition)

http://www.tmz.com#ixzz3BhgnSZFh

8:49 AM PT — The NYPD tells us ... Joan is currently in critical condition.

We’re told ... at one point, Joan’s heart stopped beating.

It’s unclear if doctors were able to restart the comic’s heart.

8:15 AM PT — We’re told an emergency call was placed to 911 at 9:39 AM ET and the caller said, “We have somebody in either cardiac or respiratory arrest.”

There is no such thing as minor surgery when you’re 81.

Got to admit, I stopped breathing watching some of her performances. Someone else said he has lots of energy for an 80+ year old person, and I agree with that.

Her plastic surgery became ghastly unfortunate a some point. Then her daughter bought in and is headed down the same trough. Sad really.

Hope she recovers.

I’m thinking it’s a pretty safe bet they restarted the heart beating.

I don’t think she insulted Johnny Carson....he got pissed because she tried to further her career by starting her own talk show.

Prayers for Ms. Rivers. I had a cardiac arrest 6 years ago and it was “touch and go” for a few days. With no oxygen to the brain, she could have significant brain damage, depending on how long she wasn’t breathing.

The way I heard it, she tried to call Johnny to discuss the matter, and he hung up on her. But who knows...nobody except the two of them, I guess.

Freepers never let facts get in the way of doing what comes natural to them

Aside from her fag haggery I have found her self deprecating and sharp....very funny at times

Ironic....Carson was arguably more libtard than Joan

And I loved Carson

I thought Joan crossed the line at times but overall

A lotta brass for 80 plus

Shouldn’t she be hospitalized BEFORE and DURING the operation??

Not all operations take place in a hospital. Abortions and tooth impaction can occur in an office setting.

I went to a hospital to have my wisdom teeth extracted because I didn't want to run the risk of complications from the anesthesia (Valium IV). Texas' revised abortion regulations (which Wendy Davis huffed and puffed against) included proximity to emergency care and doctor's admissions for women who experience botched LEGAL abortions.
