Joan Rivers passed away on Thursday at the age of 81. Rivers’ daughter, Melissa released the following statement.
“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother. Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated. My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.”
Last Thursday, the Fashion Police host was rushed to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York and placed in a medically induced coma after she stopped breathing during throat surgery. The 81-year-old, who had been on life support, was moved from ICU into a private room on Wednesday where she was being “kept comfortable.”
Celebrities took to social media to express their sadness following the death of the comedienne.
NeNe Leakes: “Nobody could talk fashion with a back handed slap better than you Joan! I laughed so hard every time I was around you. The last time I saw you, you gave me great advice on my career and I want you to know I listened , I took your advice and I will forever cherish that moment. #RIP.”
Naya Rivera: “A life well lived. My heart goes out to Joan’s family, friends, and co workers. Thank you for all the laughs. Rest in peace funny, fearless lady.”
Whoopi Goldberg: “My friend Joan Rivers has passed away once again to quote Billy Crystal… There are no words. Bon Voyage Joan.”
Regina King: “Yesterday is a mystery, tomorrow is a mystery, today is God’s gift, that’s why we call it the present –Joan Rivers She was a gift. RIP.”
Khloe Kardashian: Rest in peace Joan!! You will be missed!”
Kenya Moore: “#RIPJoan you were an iconic talent and gracious person. Pleasure working with you on Celebrity Apprentice. You were so kind. #sosad.”
Taraji P. Henson: “#rip #JoanRivers I will miss your humor!!!! Rest with the angels!!! WHAT a life!!!!!”
Khloe Kardashian Wants A Makeup Line Too … But Why?
It’s no secret that when it comes to the Kardashian clan, the family does not pass up a lucrative deal. Now, on the horizon for the already rich middle Kardashian, Khloe, she is diving into the makeup game.
Khloe is now the latest Kardashian/Jenner sister to kick start a cosmetics line. Apparently, the reality star and expecting mother trademarked paperwork for “KOKO Kollection by Khloé Kardashian” and “KOKO Kollection.” Per the report, “her application covers a broad range of makeup merch.”
The chatter comes just days after reports surfaced that Kourtney Kardashian also trademarked makeup lines “Kourt” and “2Die4Kourt.” Yes, folks; this means Kim, Kylie, Kourtney AND Khloe will have makeup products available for purchase.
It’s one thing for Kim and Kylie to jump head first into the cosmetics game, after all, makeup and beauty has been their brand for years. But Kourtney doesn’t strike us as a cosmetics girl, rather, an interior designer. Maybe she should jump into the decor world. But we digress.
As for Khloe we ask, simply: WHY? What more can or will she do that hasn’t already been done? Is makeup a large part of her brand? No, but it is a pay check.
It’s unclear when the soon-to-be-mom plans on launching the line, but our guess is not in the upcoming months; for she is due this Spring.
