No one was more devastated over the September passing of Joan Rivers than her daughter, Melissa Rivers.

Legendary comedian Joan Rivers has died today at age 81, as confirmed by her daughter Melissa. Rivers had been in intensive care for the past week, following complications during surgery on her throat. She was put on life support and never recovered consciousness.

She paid homage to these pioneers in her autobiography, Enter Talking.
