As I was one of the photographers on the set of The Joan Rivers show at CBS Television studios, I can not imagine this happening. Joan is always full of energy, always ready with a joke and is a non stop worker. We wish her the very best.
The NYPD is reporting that Rivers currently is in critical condition
