Joan Rivers missed among Hollywood and fans

It seems as though the world of comedy lost another one of the greats. With Robin Williams’ death in early August and now the loss of Joan Rivers. 

The great comedian died on the operating table due to cardiac arrest while going under a biopsy on her vocal cords. The physician who was doing the procedure was Dr. Gwen Korovin. The clinic is taking a lot of heat due to something unorthodox that happened during the surgery.

In the middle of the surgery the doctor took a selfie with Rivers while she was under. This was just moments before Rivers went into cardiac arrest and died. This has obviously sparked a lot of controversy within Hollywood and within the clinic, as well a lot of trouble for the doctor, who is the same doctor that Rivers used numerous times before. 

Korovin has had other celebrity patients, such as John Mayer, Lady Gaga and Hugh Jackman. Little has been released about what will happen to the doctor or the clinic.

Rivers died at the age of 81 after being in show business for over 50 years. She got her big start the same way many other performers in the 1960s did, such as the Beatles, The Doors or the Rolling Stones. On the Ed Sullivan Show she performed stand up comedy, movies and commercials. She was a woman who loved show business and loved Hollywood.

In 2012 she explained that when she died she wanted her funeral to be “thoroughly Hollywood”, with paparazzi, reporters, cameras and stars and that is exactly what she got. Famous stars such as, Barbara Walters, Sarah Jessica Parker and Howard Stern, who apparently cried like a baby. One thing is for sure, no one will be missing Joan Rivers more than Hollywood.
