News on the celebrity front:
According to the Associated Press, Doctors in Los Angeles say they have successfully amputated most of Zsa Zsa Gabor’s right leg. They say Friday’s surgery at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center was successful and the 93-year-old “Moulin Rouge” and “Queen of Outer Space” star is recovering. Gabor turns 94 on Feb 6.
Gabor had an infection in her leg for several months and doctors tried using antibiotics to save the leg. She was hospitalized Jan. 2.
Publicist John Blanchette says the wound wouldn’t heal, making the surgery necessary.
Our thoughts go out to one of the original Diva’s of our time.
According to her Dr. and husband, R&B singer Etta James is gravely ill, and suffering from Leukemia and Dementia. Her husband of 41 years is seeking a California court order to control more than $1 million of her money. Beverly Hills Dr. Elaine James, who isn’t related, says in court documents that the singer cannot sign her name and she needs help with feeding, dressing and hygiene.
The 72-year-old singer is best known for the 1961 hit “At Last.”
She earlier gave power of attorney to sons Donto James and Sametto James, and Donto’s wife Christy, in February 2008. Mills is challenging the power of attorney.
Again, we send our thoughts and prayers to the famed singer.
According to the Associated Press, “Martha Stewart isn’t likely to whisper sweet nothings into her dozing dog’s ear anytime again soon.
The 69-year-old lifestyle guru wrote on her blog Thursday that she needed stitches after startling her dog Francesca while leaning down to “whisper goodbye.” The dog jumped up and rammed into Stewart.
She writes that she “felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed” from her split lip Tuesday night.
She initially called police to ask for a ride to the hospital but realized her driver was waiting to drive her from her home in the suburbs to New York City for a “Today” show appearance.
Stewart landed in the Northern Westchester Hospital emergency room and received stitches in her upper lip.
She posted photos of the mishap on her blog.”
