Joan Rivers’ autopsy has returned and more information will need to be provide a clearer cause of the death. The beloved comedian died yesterday and according to TMZ, the examiner could not find a clear “cause and manner of death” and will need to do further testing including toxicology testing and interview the medical staff present at her throat surgery last week.
Giuliana Rancic one of the co-hosts on Fashion Police shared a sweet tribute to her friend, Joan. “She was not only the funniest woman I have ever met but was incredibly loving, honest, and lived her life with no regrets. Working with her for the last 13 years has been one of the true joys of my life. She could put a smile on your face, instantly, no matter how hard your day was. My heart goes out to Melissa and Cooper who have lost something that can never be replaced. Their bond was truly one-of-a-kind. They had the greatest mother and grandmother anyone could ever hope for.”
She continued, “My life is so much fuller and happier because I got to share it with this beautiful person, a true genius. I woke up today unable to grasp what the world will be like without her and at the same time feel so privileged to have called her my friend.”
Joan’s funeral will be held on Sunday at Temple Emanu-El in NYC and she wants the Hollywood works she explained h=in her 2012 best seller, “I Hate Everyone… Starting with Me.” “When I die (and yes, Melissa, that day will come; and yes, Melissa, everything’s in your name), I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action… I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way.”
She added, “I don’t want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don’t want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing ‘Mr. Lonely.’ I want to look gorgeous, better than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyoncé’s .”
Joan’s still making jokes…
