Melissa Rivers breaks silence, thanks fans for support

 

Los Angeles: 'Fashion Police' producer Melissa Rivers broke her silence for the first time since her late mother Joan Rivers' funeral.

In a WhoSay post, Melissa thanked fans for their overwhelming love and support, reportedly.

"As my son Cooper and I mourn the loss of my mother, we want to thank everyone for the beautiful cards and flowers conveying heartfelt messages and condolences, which continue to arrive from around the world and through social media.

"My mother would have been overwhelmed by the scope and depth of the love that people have expressed for her. It is certainly helping to lift our spirits during this time,"the 46-year-old wrote.

"We are forever grateful for your kindness and support in continuing to honour my mother?s legacy, and for remembering the joy and laughter that she brought to so many."

The late comedienne was rushed to the hospital on August 28 after going into cardiac arrest during an unplanned biopsy on her vocal cords.

After being put into an induced coma for almost a week, Rivers died on September 4 at the age of 81. The 'Fashion Police' host was laid to rest and celebrated by celebrities and loved ones in New York City on Sunday, September 7.

At the funeral, Melissa read a hilarious note to her late mother, in which she joked about living with her and concluded that she was "grateful for every minute Cooper and I have with you."
