Melissa Rivers Confirms Joan Rivers “Remains On Life Support”

Gray Line New York Sightseeing Tours Honors Joan Rivers, Melissa Rivers and WE TV's "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?" Season 3 Premiere on March 1, 2013

Melissa Rivers gave a small update on her mother, Joan Rivers’ condition. Rivers confirmed that her mother is still on life support (via The Wrap). “On behalf of my mother and our family, we are extremely grateful for all the love and support we’ve received. At this time she does remain on life support. I know my mother would be overwhelmed by the continued outpouring of kindness and I want to thank everyone for keeping us in their prayers.”

There are a few reports circulating that Melissa may take Joan off life support (or her medically induced coma) to see if she will begin to recover on her own. “The waking-up process has begun and will take until Tuesday,” a source close to the family told the Daily News. “There is real concern that the part of the brain that controls motor skills may have been compromised, leaving her as either a vegetable or in a wheelchair.”
