According to Deadline, the 47-year-old daughter writes, “I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother. She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers.”

Joan Rivers was sent to Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City after she reportedly stopped breathing and went into cardiac arrest while undergoing a throat procedure at a clinic this morning. Joan was initially listed in critical condition but is now being listed in stable condition.

The 81-year-old comedienne is the host of E!’s ‘Fashion Police’ and has been working in showbiz since the late 1950s.
