    Now that her body has caught up with her brain, everything should be just fine.

    I don’t wish harm on anyone, but Rivers has been a nasty old lady as of late.

    Best wishes to her recovery. Hopefully she’ll fade out of the public eye.

    Is this because of more plastic surgery? Hope she’s ok because she can be very funny…

      She can? Then why doesn’t she? Be funny, I mean.

        I think she’s funny. Usually she’s making cracks about herself. In her younger years she frequented and even hosted Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show so…somebody other than me also thought the same… 🙂

    While I’d wouldn’t wish harm or even someone’s death to come about, I don’t feel much for this woman. After that remark she made a few weeks back when she stated that Palestinians choose to stay where they are and get killed as being their fault (paraphrasing) and deserve it. That was the last straw of her nasty commentaries for me to stomach.

      Her whole career is built on tearing other people down. She’s like the female version of Gilbert Gottfried.

    I hope she pulls through this. I would never wish on her what she wished on the Palestinian people.

    Interesting post, it’s a rare occasion I see the Bad news before the Good news in a single headline….
