NEW YORK, NY - UPDATE: Comedian Joan Rivers was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in New York on Thursday, according to a statement released by the hospital. Her daughter, Melissa, said Thursday night that the TV legend was "resting comfortably."

"I want to thank everyone for the overwhelming love and support for my mother," Melissa Rivers said in a statement. "She is resting comfortably and is with our family. We ask that you continue to keep her in your thoughts and prayers."

Mount Sinai earlier confirmed that Rivers was taken to the hospital and said in a statement: "We will provide an update on her condition as it becomes available."

PREVIOUS STORY:

A spokesman at The Mount Sinai Hospital says there will be an update on her condition "as soon as it becomes available." He says Rivers' family "wants to thank everybody for their outpouring of love and support."

Rivers has spent a half-century in show business. She was a pioneer of red-carpet commentary -- and the snarky criticism that often accompanies it. Her signature question has been, "Who are you wearing?" She continues to maintain a busy schedule, and was supposed to perform a show tomorrow night in New Jersey. It has now been postponed.

Just last night, she spoke at an employee event at Time Inc. in New York. An employee there says Rivers "seemed totally healthy," and was "very energetic."

Rivers is host of "Fashion Police" on E! Network, and co-stars with her daughter, Melissa, on a WEtv reality show. She also presides over an online talk show.

After proving herself in comedy clubs in the 1960s, Rivers was a smash on her first booking on "The Tonight Show" in 1965, and went on to become a regular guest and then a guest-host before getting her own talk show.
