NEW YORK – Melissa Rivers updated fans on Wednesday about her mother Joan Rivers’ condition, six days after the sharp-tongued comedian was rushed to the hospital after she stopped breathing during a minor procedure.
“My mother has been moved out of intensive care and into a private room where she is being kept comfortable,” the statement read. “Thank you for your continued support.”
Melissa Rivers made no mention of whether or not her mother was still on life support and if her condition had improved. As of Tuesday, Melissa Rivers said the 81 year old remained on life support.
She added on Tuesday that she knows her mother would be overwhelmed by the continuing outpouring of kindness.
Meanwhile E! told FOX411 on Tuesday that filming had been suspended on the series Joan Rivers co-hosts, “Fashion Police.”
“We will not be producing a ‘Fashion Police’ this week or next as we await Joan and Melissa’s return in front and behind the camera,” a rep said. “E! will be airing two ‘E! From Fashion Week’ specials that will deliver the latest news and information from the highly-anticipated event.”
The TV personality went into cardiac arrest on Aug. 28 during a procedure at a clinic and she was rushed to New York City’s Mount Sinai Hospital. Melissa Rivers has previously said her mother “is receiving the best treatment and care possible.”
Comedian Joan Rivers died in a New York hospital Thursday afternoon, a week after suffering cardiac arrest during a medical procedure, her daughter said.
“She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. surrounded by family and close friends,” Melissa Rivers said in a written statement.
Rivers, 81, had been on life support at Manhattan’s Mount Sinai hospital, where she was taken after she stopped breathing at the Yorkville Endoscopy clinic last Thursday.
The outpatient clinic is now being investigated by the New York State Department of Health, spokesman James O’Hara said.
“My son and I would like to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff of Mount Sinai Hospital for the amazing care they provided for my mother,” her daughter said. “Cooper and I have found ourselves humbled by the outpouring of love, support, and prayers we have received from around the world. They have been heard and appreciated.’
Rivers was undergoing an apparently minor elective procedure at the clinic when she suffered cardiac and respiratory arrest, according to the New York Fire Department.
Paramedics took her by ambulance to Mount Sinai Hospital, about a mile from the clinic, where she was intially listed in critical condition.
The Rivers family made very little information about her medical condition public, finally confirming Tuesday that she was on life support.

Is Bigfoot Visiting a Playground in Mississippi?
An abandoned playground in Vicksburg, Mississippi, has swings, monkey bars and other equipment that’s a little dusty and rusty but still functional. While kids don’t play there anymore, its close proximity to some dense woods seems to have made it the preferred playground for Bigfoot … at least that’s what two men who claim to have seen evidence of the creature there recently.
In November, 2013, David Childers, an investigator for Delta Paranormal Project, was listening for evidence of ghost voices reported in the park when he instead heard something crashing through the woods.
I don’t know what it was, about 6 feet tall. And it just bolted off through the woods. It was definitely a shaggy coat to it, like a grayish-brown color. When it made the noise that spooked me, I looked over, and it looked like it stood up and just bolted off.
On August 12, 2014, Peyton Lassiter was working near the same playground and found a nine-inch-long, six-inch-wide print which shows ridges similar to human prints. Lassiter took a cast of the print and also found strands of grey hair near the footprint. Of the ridges, he said this:
There are only two species that have that. Number one, humans and primates. Bears don’t have fingerprint-like impressions on the skin of the foot, so that kind of changes the game a little bit. I have no knowledge of what made it, and I didn’t see what made it, but it’s very intriguing.
