Joan Rivers is on life support and may be on the verge of death.

The comedian, who was hospitalized on Thursday after she stopped breathing during throat surgery, is reliant on machines at the moment to stay alive.

According to TMZ insiders, the celebrity's family (which includes daughter Melissa, of course) will be forced to decide how it wishes to proceed over the next few days.

She was immediately rushed to the emergency room at New York's Mt. Sinai Hospital where doctors successfully revived the 81-year-old comic. 

Later that same day Rivers' condition was upgraded to stable and the E! Network (for whom Rivers has worked for several years as host of Fashion Police), reported that Joan was expected to make a full recovery.

Earlier today, Joan's daughter Melissa reported that Rivers is "resting comfortably" and asked fans for their thoughts and prayers.

Comedian Joan Rivers is "resting comfortably" in a New York hospital after suffering surgery complications during a procedure at a medical clinic.

Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, issued a statement Thursday night after arriving from L.A., asking fans to "keep her in your thoughts and prayers."

"I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family," Melissa said.

A law enforcement official told CNN that Rivers stopped breathing during throat surgery. Rivers, 81, was taken by ambulance in critical condition.

She was later upgraded to stable condition at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, a mile away from the clinic where she was having the minor operation.

"This morning, Joan Rivers was taken to the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where she is being attended to," hospital spokesman Sid Dinsay said.

Moments ago, however, E! News' Ken Baker tweeted that Rivers has been upgraded to stable condition and is currently recovering.

There's still no word on what caused Rivers to go into respiratory arrest during the procedure.

Despite her age, fans were shocked to hear that Joan had suffered the complication, as the Fashion Police host is as active as ever these days, after more than 5 decades in show business.

LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian sat down for an interview with Joan Rivers recently, and as you may have guessed, the inappropriate jokes came fast and furious right off the bat.

Well, more accurately, LeAnn and Eddie laid down for Rivers' web series titled In Bed With Joan.

We're not sure what they're promoting, as their VH1 reality show has been a ratings disaster and is now limping to the end of its first and final season, but we're glad Rimes and Cibrian did this interview, if only so they could prove to the world that LeAnn can actually be more offensive than Joan.

Yes, we know this is the same Joan Rivers who said Palestinians deserve to die because they're stupid. 

Even taking "jokes" like that into account, LeAnn may have actually said something more indefensible in the clip above:

Joan Rivers has never been the shy type, but the 81-year-old comedy legend has been sharing her views more openly than ever while promoting her latest book.

While her ruthless jabs are usually reserved for celebrities and their fashion choices, recently Joan has entered the political arena and set her sights on Hamas and Selena Gomez.

That may seem like an odd combination of targets (and it is), but they're not totally unrelated.

Selena tweeted her support for Gaza last week, joining the long list of celebrities who have sided with Palestine in the bloody, ongoing conflict. 

Rivers is staunchly pro-Israel and, consequently, anti-Selena. She shared her views in her typically outspoken fashion during a recent interview on Israeli television:

Joan Rivers is taking an interesting approach to promoting her new book, Diary of a Mad Diva.

Instead of making the talk show rounds and playing nice with guests and audiences, as celebs usually do when they're hocking memoirs, Joan has embarked on a one-woman mission to offend every man, woman, and child in Hollywood. And it seems to be working:

Appearing on Watch What Happens Live! last night, Joan was asked by host Andy Cohen for her opinion about the Real Housewives of New York and their style choices. He had to know what was coming:

"I know they're your pets," replied Rivers. "[But] they look like whores."

Rivers warned the crowd at the start of the show that she'd had a bad day and wouldn't be playing nice, and her interview was all the more entertaining for it, as she riffed on celebs ranging from Tommy Lee Jones to Helen Keller:

As if Selena Gomez didn't have enough to worry about these days with Justin Bieber seemingly banging every model on two legs, now comes this:

Joan Rivers and the mean people of E! Fashion Police have called out the artist for the sheer ensemble she donned at this month's Ischia Film Festival in Italy.

“Selena has no boobs!” said Rivers. “She fills that bra out about as well as Lauryn Hill filled out her W-2."

Added someone named George Kotsiopoulos: "She looks like a hooker child bride!"

Whoa there! Harsh much, people?!?

While most 81-year-old celebrities are retiring from public life or riding out the final years of their careers while carefully avoiding controversies that might tarnish their legacy, Joan Rivers has been ruffling more feathers than ever lately, and whether you love or hate her, you've gotta admit it's been entertaining.

Joan's recent tirades are too numerous to list here, but highlights include Rivers accusing Miley Cyrus of incest, and suggesting that Kim Kardashian has slept with millions of men.

But while she's consistently raised the bar for shocking rants throughout her career, Rivers may have outdone herself at LAX today when she stopped making fun of celebrities and started getting serious about the bloody conflict between Israelis and Palestinians:

The video above features Joan providing her unabashed two cents on the topic, and if you've tweeted #FreePalestine recently, you may want skip the clip so as to avoid smashing your laptop in a fit of rage.
