#TaniaOnTheSceneI first met the funny woman back in 2006 (seen above). Joan Rivers is always so full of energy and cracking jokes. Each time I met her, she always had such high-spirits about her. 

Comedian and “Fashion Police” host Joan Rivers was rushed to a hospital in cardiac arrest Thursday morning, police confirmed.
