Joan Rivers’ Cause of Death Revealed

Joan Rivers’ Cause of Death Revealed

Slaven Vlasic/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Joan Rivers died in a New York City hospital Sept. 4 at the age of 81. Now, there are some answers for what happened.Rivers was sedated with propofol before she died of low blood oxygen during a procedure to treat voice changes and acid reflux, according to the New York City medical examiner.Rivers lacked sufficient oxygen to her brain for a prolonged period of time, which caused brain damage, the medical examiner said. Her heart had stopped after she was sedated with propofol while undergoing procedures to examine her condition.The medical examiner’s office said it found no obvious medical error and that the manner of death was “therapeutic complication,” indicating that death is an accepted possibility of the procedure she was undergoing.Her daughter, Melissa Rivers, told ABC News, "We continue to be saddened by our tragic loss and grateful for the enormous outpouring of love and support from around the world. We have no further comment at this time."A person briefed on the Rivers investigation said an autopsy was not performed on Joan Rivers at the instruction of the family and in accordance with Jewish law. Instead, the report was based on a noninvasive physical examination and a thorough review of her charts from Yorkville Endoscopy, where she was undergoing her procedure, as well as her medical history.As a result, the report from the medical examiner's office does not explain what caused the sudden lack of oxygen. No additional information will be released by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, citing New York state law.Rivers was being treated at Yorkville Endoscopy in Manhattan Aug. 28 when she suffered cardiac arrest. She was taken to a nearby hospital, where she arrived unconscious and was kept sedated by her doctors.Her daughter confirmed a few days later that her mother was on life support.The comic legend died "surrounded by family and close friends," Melissa Rivers said."My mother’s greatest joy in life was to make people laugh," she said in a statement. "Although that is difficult to do right now, I know her final wish would be that we return to laughing soon."Meanwhile, the New York State Health Department recently completed its "full investigation" of the clinic where Rivers was being treated, according to a DOH representative, and results will be released soon. A source said initially there was no suspicion of wrongdoing and the investigation was routine.

Zoe Saldana Finally Opens Up About Her Pregnancy

Zoe Saldana Finally Opens Up About Her Pregnancy

Randy Holmes / ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- For months, Zoe Saldana has played coy about her pregnancy. However, on Wednesday night, she revealed that her due date is eight to 10 weeks away and that so far, things have been going well."I feel great," she told said during an appearance The Late, Late Show. "I'm hungry all the time!"The actress, 36, is reportedly expecting twin boys with her husband, Marco Perego, though she has yet to confirm that tidbit. One thing is for sure, though: Pregnancy has increased her appetite. During her appearance on the talk show, the actress dug into ribs that host Craig Ferguson provided for her."It feels good. Food just tastes so delicious," she gushed. "It's really good because you trick yourself. Working in Hollywood, you trick yourself, going, 'That burger's disgusting. A burger is awful,' but now that you're pregnant, you're like, 'I can eat all of that together at the same time! I can have the pickle with the doughnut and it will probably be life-changing.'"However, Saldana said that she isn't craving anything specific, nor has she sent Perego out on a food-finding mission. Instead, her sleepless nights are spent watching crime mysteries and dreaming about receiving compliments on her changing physique."Now that I'm pregnant, I'm kind of itching for sex comments, compliments," she said. "Not getting picked up because my husband will kill you, but, [for someone to say], 'Your wife is looking really hot!' We like that."

Brad Pitt Tells “Details” Magazine ‘I Don’t Suck at Being a Dad’

ABC/Rick Rowell(NEW YORK) -- Brad Pitt is an A-list actor and a family man, and he discusses how he manages to balance the two in the latest issue of Details magazine, declaring he doesn't "suck at being a dad."Much of the 50-year-old actor's time is spent being dad to his and wife Angelina Jolie's six children, and he thinks he's pretty good at it."I've discovered I don't suck at being a dad," he tells the magazine.Another thing Pitt has learned to deal with is living in the public eye. He notes, "My soul was stolen by the camera so long ago, I don't have to think about it anymore.""One definition of freedom is the ability to follow your bliss without being watched, recorded, scrutinized," Pitt added.The actor has been riding motorcycles since he was a kid and tells the magazine he tries to find time to do it as often as he can. "I try to carve out time for a solo ride in every country I travel to, from the Highlands of Scotland to the Atlas Mountains of Morocco to the belly of India.""I haven't even come close to fulfilling my list -- yet," he admits. "But, in the traffic of L.A. with a helmet on, I'm just another a**hole on the road."Even when he's not riding, Pitt loves being outdoors."The woods, rivers, bluffs, lakes and caves have all left an indelible mark on me," he reveals. "And I'm quite reverential when it comes to a tree. On my forearm, I had tattooed 94.9m -- the height of the largest sequoia."Pitt will next be seen in the World War II drama Fury, opening Friday.The latest edition of Details magazine hits newsstands Oct. 28.

Chris Noth on “Sex and the City 3″ Rumors, His Mr. Big Character

Warner Bros. (New Line)(NEW YORK) -- Amid rumors of a third Sex and the City movie, actor Chris Noth, who played Mr. Big, recently discussed the topic with the Australian news website News.com.au and said he'll "believe it when they say ‘Action.'"Noth adds, "...Until then I don’t pay any attention. Sure, I’ve heard rumors, but they’ve been saying that s**t for 10 years."The 59-year-old actor also talked about Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw, and cleared up a misconception about his character's money and power giving him the upper hand in the relationship, noting that "emotionally he was a wreck.""It was [Carrie] who tried to pretend he was something he wasn’t. He was always honest about himself -- he never cheated on her," Noth explains."The relationship just didn’t work, and he went on to get married while she went on to…how many boyfriends did she have? She was such a whore," Noth declares with a laugh."There’s a misconception that Carrie was a victim of him, and that’s not the case -- she was a strong, smart woman," Noth adds.When asked why he thinks the critical response to the second Sex and the City movie was mostly negative, Noth blamed poor timing."I think it was considered an indulgence and a distraction because it hit right when the recession happened," he tells the Australian website. "People were like, ‘Who gives a f**k about these broads going to Dubai when we can’t pay our mortgage?’""It was originally intended as a romp between these friends, but I think it was a mistake to leave New York City, because New York is an integral part of that show," he added.

Kesha ‘Had a Lot of Trepidation’ About Suing Producer Dr. Luke

Kesha ‘Had a Lot of Trepidation’ About Suing Producer Dr. Luke

Eric McCandless/ABC(NEW YORK) -- Singer Kesha had "a lot of trepidation" about suing her longtime producer, Dr. Luke, over allegations that he was sexually, verbally, emotionally and physically abusive toward her, her lawyer, Mark Geragos, told ABC News' Good Morning America Wednesday.Kesha filed her lawsuit Tuesday, and Dr. Luke -- whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald -- has filed his own lawsuit against the singer for alleged defamation and breach of contract.

Taking legal action was nerve-wracking for the singer, Geragos said.However, "she’s strong," Geragos told GMA. "When I talked with her yesterday, I thought she was enormously resilient about this. She’s in a good place."The singer, 27, sued Dr. Luke, claiming that his abuse was so severe that she "nearly lost her life." In the 27-page document, obtained by ABC News, she alleged that he gave her drugs and alcohol so that he could take advantage of her, and that he "cruelly and incessantly" berated her about her physical appearance. She claimed that the alleged verbal abuse contributed to the singer developing an eating disorder, for which she entered treatment earlier this year.Now, "she’s in a place where she’s strong enough that she can make it work. She can stand up to him," Geragos said. "I mean, this is a frightening thing to have to go through. The date rape. The years of mental and emotional abuse. Those are things that I think anybody, especially at her age when this started, would be devastated by."Gottwald's lawsuit denies claims made by Kesha and added that her mother "has made clear that extortion is the ultimate goal of this defamatory campaign."Gottwald's lawyer, Christine Lepera, told ABC News Tuesday that while she had yet to see Kesha's lawsuit, she believed it to be "nothing more than a continuation of her bad and offensive acts.""As set forth in the complaint that we have filed on behalf of Dr. Luke, Kesha and her mother are engaged in a campaign of publishing outrageous and untrue statements about Dr. Luke to third parties, including scurrilous and false statements of purported physical and mental abuse of Kesha," Lepera said. "The complaint explains that Kesha and her mother Pebe have wielded these defamatory statements in an attempt to extort Gottwald into releasing Kesha from her exclusive recording agreement with Dr. Luke."

Joe Giudice Accepts Plea Deal in Fraud and Forgery Case

Joe Giudice Accepts Plea Deal in Fraud and Forgery Case

iStock/Thinkstock(PATERSON, N.J.) -- After thinking things over, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice has accepted a plea deal in a fraud and forgery case, in which he has been accused of using his brother's marriage and birth certificates to obtain a driver's license in 2010.The plea deal, which will allow Giudice to forgo a trial, required him to plead guilty to possession of a fraudulent driver's license. He initially faced a more serious charge of willfully using the identification of another -- a second-degree offense that carried a maximum 10 years in prison. Under this deal, Giudice accepts an 18-month sentence that will run concurrently with his previously arranged federal prison sentence.Earlier Wednesday, Giudice, 42, told a Paterson, New Jersey, judge that he refused the deal, because it required him to admit guilt. However, he changed his mind after a judge asked him to think things through.Earlier this month, the reality TV star was sentenced to more than three years in a federal prison and ordered to pay part of $414,000 in restitution for federal crimes including hiding assets, submitting fake loan applications and failing to pay taxes.He and his wife, Teresa Giudice, who was ordered to spend 15 months in prison, will serve their time separately, which the court determined was in the best interest of their four children."I just want to apologize that I got you into this mess," he told his wife in a televised interview after his federal sentencing. "If I could take it all back, I would."

Report: Amanda Bynes Could Be Confined, Treated for a Year

Report: Amanda Bynes Could Be Confined, Treated for a Year

Dave Kotinsky/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- TMZ reports that Amanda Bynes could be involuntarily confined for up to a year if her doctors successfully secure a so-called LPS hold on the troubled actress. The gossip site says her doctors are trying to get a judge to do just that, after Bynes began exhibiting troubling behavior following the recent expiration of the conservatorship secured by her parents.According to TMZ, the LPS hold could force the actress to confinement -- and to take psychiatric medication -- for up to a year. A similar, but shorter hold was placed on the actress more than a year ago, after she was caught sparking a fire in a driveway and accidentally dousing her dog with gasoline.Following a 72-hour psychiatric hold that began on Friday evening, Tamar Arminak, a lawyer for Bynes' family, confirmed to ABC News Monday that Bynes will remain hospitalized for another two weeks. The 28-year-old actress arrived at the Las Encinas Hospital for a three-day stay after arriving in Los Angeles from New York late last week, Arminak added.Bynes' parents first expressed concern on Friday, the same day their daughter went on a troublesome Twitter rant. "My clients are very concerned about their daughter," Arminak told ABC News in a statement. "Despite what is being reported, they are doing everything they can to help Amanda."Bynes spent the week in New York after flying in last week from California, where she was arrested for DUI on September 29, according to authorities. She is due in court on October 23 and is expected to enter a plea on the DUI.While under her parents' conservatorship, the actress reportedly entered treatment, which she left in December of 2013, and enrolled in a fashion school from which she reportedly parted ways amid reports of increasingly erratic behavior.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio

Director Addresses Stephen Collins’ Role in Film

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The director of a short film starring Stephen Collins has released a statement saying he made the project well before the child molestation allegations against the actor came to light.Collins plays a pedophile priest in Penance, which has recently played at various film festivals but which director Jeff Wolfe notes was made in 2013. In a statement to People magazine, Wolfe says, "When I cast Stephen Collins, I had no idea there might be a connection between his real life and the part I asked him to play."He adds, "I found the recent allegations particularly shocking, as my film is meant to speak to victims of abuse and the idea that the effects of abuse never really go away."Wolfe had also worked with Collins on the since-cancelled NBC show Revolution.

Police are investigating claims that Collins molested three girls years ago.

Bill Murray Vows He Won’t Catch Oscar ‘Virus’

Weinstein Company(NEW YORK) -- Bill Murray's performance in the upcoming movie St. Vincent is being called Oscar-worthy, but in a new interview with Variety, Murray reveals that unlike other awards-season hopefuls, he won't be campaigning for the coveted trophy.“I’ve never done that,” he tells the magazine. “I know that’s something Harvey [Weinstein, head of The Weinstein Company, the studio backing the film] does -- he forces you to do these things. I’m not that way. If you want an award so much, it’s like a virus. It’s an illness.”The 64-year-old actor, who earned an Academy Award nomination for Lost in Translation back in 2004, admits he convinced himself that he would win.  He didn't.

“Six months later, I realized I had taken the virus. I had been infected," he confesses.Murray notes that winning the Oscar has been a curse for some of his Hollywood peers. “People have this post-Oscar blowback,” he explains. “They start thinking, ‘I can’t do a movie unless it’s Oscar-worthy.’ It just seems people have difficulty making the right choices after that.”Weinstein tells Billboard he thinks it's too early to discuss St. Vincent’s Oscar odds, "until something happens, like a Golden Globe or a critic’s award."If that happens, Weinstein adds, Murray will "have to get a restraining order against us. We’ll disregard what he told us.”St. Vincent stars Murray as a crabby neighbor who develops an unlikely friendship with the son of a recent divorcee, played by Melissa McCarthy. Naomi Watts also stars.St. Vincent is now out in limited release. It opens nationwide Oct. 24.
