Comedian Joan Rivers dies aged 81

You either loved or hated her, but I thought she was great, a very funny lady.  RIP Joan Rivers. Crying or Very sad




Comedian Joan Rivers dies aged 81

Comedian and TV host Joan Rivers has died, her daughter has said.

Rivers, 81, had been on life support in Mount Sinai Hospital since having a cardiac arrest in New York last week.

In a statement, her daughter Melissa said she died surrounded by family and friends, and she thanked hospital staff for their "amazing care".

The comedian, best known for her lacerating wit, stopped breathing during a procedure on her vocal cords at an outpatient clinic last Thursday.

"My mother's greatest joy in life was to make people laugh," said Melissa Rivers.

"Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon."

The actress and stand-up comedian is well known for her legendary put-downs and has more recently turned her razor-sharp tongue on the red carpet's worst dressed celebrities, hosting the E! network's Fashion Police.

 Rivers and Melissa, her only child, have appeared together in reality TV show Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?

She didn't just fire her barbs at others, however. She was always prepared to joke about herself, and in particular her plastic surgery.

In 2010, she tweeted a joke about her death, saying: With all the plastic surgery I've had I'm worried that when I die, God won't recognize me!

Shortly after her death was announced, tributes poured in from the world of entertainment.

Comedian and actress Whoopi Goldberg tweeted: "My friend Joan Rivers has passed away once again to quote Billy Crystal... There are no words. Bon Voyage Joan."

TV show host Ellen DeGeneres described Rivers as a pioneer, adding: "She paved the way for a lot of comedians. I'm very sad she's gone."

She was born Joan Alexandra Molinsky in Brooklyn, New York, to a family of Jewish immigrants who had fled the Russian Revolution.

Her big break came in 1965 when she appeared on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, and a long television career followed.

Her first marriage lasted only six months but her second with Edgar Rosenberg spanned more than two decades until his suicide in 1987.

So sad to hear the news today that Lynda has died. She made a brave decision to stop treatment and was aware of the implications. I am glad she was with her husband at the end. RIP Lynda.

Bit before my time but I remember that song very well. Used to play it at the end of the night at some dodgy nightclub I used to very occasionally frequent many years ago. The sort of place where you wipe your feet on the way out.

RIP Alvin.

Saw him live when he was at the top of his game. Can't believe he was 72. Kind of remember him as Shane Fenton and the Fentones before His Alvin Stardust days.

No, I was watching one on BBC earlier and he said those sideburns from the 70/80's were stuck on, not the real thing. Very Happy   RIP Alvin.

Indeed it was a scandal - not that I understood what call girls were then!

How tame it seems by today's standards.

I was 6 so obviously heard it on the news. My dad would likely have told me a call girl worked at the bingo. In the pre remote control days he would press the buttons on the tv whenever anything slightly suggestive came on the screen. He sat about 2 feet from the telly. His fingers would be worn out nowadays.

I don't recall how old I was but I asked my mother what a brothel was, having read a report in a local paper about a woman fined for keeping one.

My mother spluttered something about she had men in her house - which made me wonder if men shouldn't be allowed indoors!

Ours was an all-female household, by the way. My father died when I was very young.

Remember Cynthia Payne and the luncheon vouchers? I thought a brothel was a kind of soup kitchen.

Anne Kirkbride, Coronation Street's Deidre Barlow, dies aged 60

Coronation Street star Anne Kirkbride, who played the character Deirdre Barlow in the long-running television soap, has died aged 60 after a short illness.
ITV said the actress, who was in the show for 44 years, passed away peacefully in a Manchester hospital.
Her husband David Beckett and the programme's cast and crew were said to be "heartbroken and deeply saddened".
Coronation Street executive producer Kieran Roberts said: "We feel blessed and honoured to have known her."
He added: "There are no words to describe the sense of grief we feel at Anne's passing. We know only too acutely how much Anne meant to the millions of people who watched her create the legendary character of Deirdre Barlow.
"She will be greatly missed by the Coronation Street team who share happy memories of working with her. Our thoughts are with David and their family."
'Greatly missed'
ITV director of television Peter Fincham said the character she played on the programme was "unique and unforgettable".
"Anne has been a truly loyal servant to Coronation Street since joining the programme in the early 1970s," he said.
"She created a unique and unforgettable character in Deirdre Barlow and she'll be greatly missed on and off screen.
"Our sincerest condolences to Anne's husband David and her family at this very sad time."
Ken Farrington, who played Billy Walker in Coronation Street for more than 20 years, told BBC News her death was "absolutely devastating".
"I'm still a bit shocked. She had just tremendous fun and talent," he said.
Kirkbride started in Coronation Street in 1972 and over the years became known for her character's large glasses and husky voice.
One of the soap's most famous storylines hinged on whether she would stay with onscreen husband Ken Barlow, played by William Roache.
Roache said: " "I feel Anne's loss so personally having worked closely with her for over 40 years. She was such a loving and vibrant person. You always knew she was there because her laugh was never far away.
"She was an impeccable performer with superb comedy timing and an immense gift for really heightened drama. We had some rows over the years as Ken and Deirdre and it was wonderful to play those scenes opposite her.
"Coronation Street has lost one of its iconic characters and Anne will be greatly missed."
