Joan Rivers is a fighter.
As the E! Fashion Police host remains hospitalized at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, a source reveals the comedian is making small, but positive, steps.
"It's a slow process, but she's on the road to recovery," a source close to the situation tells E! News exclusively. "She's getting better. Don't believe all this ridiculous speculation."
Joan stopped breathing while undergoing a minor throat procedure Aug. 28 in New York City. She was then rushed to the hospital where she was placed in a medically induced coma.
Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, flew across the country the same day with her son, Cooper, to be by the comic legend's side.
