Truly one of the greats. What a long career and still at the top of her game at 81. You truly have to respect what she's accomplished.

The world just got a little less funny.

Joan Rivers has died at 81.

"It is with great sadness that I announce the death of my mother, Joan Rivers," Melissa Rivers said in a written statement today. "She passed peacefully at 1:17 p.m. 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."

Melissa Rivers added that she and her son, Cooper, "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."

I was not a big fan of her humor as sometimes she was very mean spirited, but my heart goes out to Melissa. The closeness and relationship she had with her mother was amazing and my heart is breaking for her right now.

Funny to the end. This is what Joan Rivers wrote about her own funeral in her book "I Have Everyone... Starting With Me":

"When I die, I want my funeral to be a huge showbiz affair with lights, cameras, action...I want Craft services, I want paparazzi and I want publicists making a scene! I want it to be Hollywood all the way. I don't want some rabbi rambling on; I want Meryl Streep crying, in five different accents. I don't want a eulogy; I want Bobby Vinton to pick up my head and sing "Mr. Lonely." I want to look gorgeous, better dead than I do alive. I want to be buried in a Valentino gown and I want Harry Winston to make me a toe tag. And I want a wind machine so that even in the casket my hair is blowing just like Beyoncé's."

Between Joan and Robin there's got to be some amazing comedy happening up there.
