After two unplanned surgeries, Marino returned to the Divas Las Vegas stage at Imperial Palace. Originally festivities had been planned for the previous Thursday, but Frank was admitted to the hospital. After the regular show, executives from SPI Entertainment presented Marino with a divalicious cake that included edible lipsticks and mini TVs with rotating images of Marino through the years. Kind words and warm congratulations were offered but the most heartfelt came from Marino’s idol herself – Joan Rivers. Rivers, via video, congratulated Marino for making a career off of hers and even threw in that he looks better in her leftover couture gowns.
