Comedienne Joan Rivers is recovering after undergoing minor eye surgery.
The ageing TV personality had an operation on her cornea last week (begs23Jul12) after developing a cataract, which obscured the vision in her right eye.
But, the health crisis fell right in the middle of her American book tour for new novel, I Hate Everyone... Starting With Me, forcing the 80 year old to don an eye patch for protection while completing her promotional duties.
Making a reference to Chris Brown's violent 2009 altercation with former girlfriend Rihanna during an interview with U.S. chat show The View on Monday (30Jul12), she said, "It's all bruised, I look like I'm dating Chris Brown under here (the eye patch)."
