QVC’s CEO Mike George on Joan and the Classics Collection

In a recent interview in Philadelphia Magazine, QVC’s CEO Mike George talked about the continued success of the network in the changing digital landscape. He also spoke about what Joan meant on both personal and professional levels as the Classics Collection continues.

“In the case of Joan, she had built a very impressive business with a strong team. That business has continued, the president of the company, Joan Rivers Worldwide, is the person that comes on air and sells the product. That business remains strong.”

Melissa Rivers Statement re: Lawsuit Filing

“Filing this lawsuit was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make. What ultimately guided me was my unwavering belief that no family should ever have to go through what my mother, Cooper and I have been through. The level of medical mismanagement, incompetency, disrespect and outrageous behavior is shocking and frankly, almost incomprehensible. Not only did my mother deserve better, every patient deserves better. It is my goal to make sure that this kind of horrific medical treatment never happens to anyone again.”

Broadway Lights Dim for Joan

From Melissa

“It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers. She passed peacefully at 1:17pm surrounded by family and close friends. 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.

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.

My mother’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.”

A Statement from Melissa Rivers

“My mother would be so touched by the tributes and prayers that we have received from around the world. Her condition remains serious but she is receiving the best treatment and care possible. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts as we pray for her recovery.”
