Right on the heels of learning Joan Rivers has died, we’ve heard one of Joan’s Fashion Police co-stars is in the hospital. Send your get well soon wishes to Kelly Osbourne!
Just a couple of hours ago, and before news of Joan’s death had been released, the 29-year-old shared a photo from her hospital bed explaining what ails her. “When you have a cough go to the doctor or you will end up like me! #Pneumonia,” she captions the pic. She looks to be feeling OK in the snapshot, so our hopes are high she’ll make a full recovery soon.
Sadly, we doubt the news of Joan’s passing will do much to improve how Kelly’s feeling. The 81-year-old star died earlier today (September 4); she’d been in the hospital since August 28 after she went into cardiac arrest and stopped breathing during an endoscopy. Kelly was one of many celebrities who sent messages of support to Joan.
Her daughter and fellow E! star, Melissa Rivers, announced her mother’s death, saying how Joan’s “greatest joy in life was to make people laugh. Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon.” E! took a similar tone in its statement, acknowledging the comedienne’s monumental achievements including “[making] people laugh, [shattering] glass ceilings, and [revolutionizing] comedy.”
We wish all of the E! family the best as they heal.
