Joan Rivers no longer in intensive care


Joan Rivers' condition may be improving.

The caustic comedienne has been moved from intensive care to a private room, daughter Melissa Rivers told AOL News through a spokesperson.

Reports Tuesday indicated the 81-year-old remained on life support after she stopped breathing during a throat operation last week at a Manhattan clinic. She has remained at Mount Sinai Hospital since.

The red carpet commentator and television host has also kept busy hosting "Fashion Police" on the E! network and as co-star of the WEtv reality show, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?"

The octogenarian also still tours the country as a standup comedienne.

Melissa Rivers said in an earlier statement that she knows her mother would be overwhelmed by the continuing outpouring of kindness.
