Joan Rivers, entertainment pioneer

In the above video, Brian Stelter and "Entertainment Tonight" co-host Nancy O'Dell take a look at Joan Rivers's groundbreaking career.

Rivers was hospitalized on Thursday after she stopped breathing during throat surgery at a Manhattan medical clinic. She was listed in critical condition at New York's Mount Sinai Hospital.

"She had an impact, as far as being a woman in this business, because she really broke the glass ceiling," O'Dell said, referring to Rivers' appearances on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson.

O'Dell also said that Rivers, age 81, has helped to disprove the "Hollywood myth" that "women can't have a long career" in the entertainment industry.

    I agree with Iwitte Le Sneuse, to open your blog and see Joan Rivers' face when I'm expecting to see what news of value I missed on Reliable Sources this morning...? (no offense to Joan Rivers) I'm not encouraged enough to read on. Fading fan here.

    I am I hallucinating, or was this story not at the top of the Reliable Sources page earlier? I'm ticked off. This was the lead story, and the long-term effects of extensive plastic surgery on her health finally taking its toll was of vital importance of many women around the country. Vital important.
