The Word: Health scares of the stars
The Australians must be desperate.
They’ve flown Kevin Federline, 33, all the way to their country to star in their weight-loss reality show, “Excess Baggage” (because, apparently, “Celebrity Fit Club” worked out so well for him). But their workouts were too much for the former dancer/chronic egg fertilizer, and, according to local reports, his heart went “PopoZão” and he was rushed to a hospital with chest pains. It was so severe that according to local reports, Federline suffered a “mini heart-attack” (which sounds like an oxymoron if there ever was one).
Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, Tracy Morgan was also rushed to the hospital in Park City, Utah, on Monday after he collapsed at the Creative Coalition Spotlight Awards. A source told the Hollywood Reporter that, “Morgan seemed inebriated, yelling and falling onto the ground.”
I know what you are thinking and no, it was not booze. It was the altitude at the Sundance Film Festival that felled the “30 Rock” star. Per his rep: “From a combination of exhaustion and altitude, Tracy is seeking medical attention. He is with his fiancee and grateful to the Park City Medical Center for their care. Any reports of Tracy consuming alcohol are 100 percent false.”
This is one of those rare occasions that a PR statement is true: The hospital reports that Morgan did not have alcohol or drugs in his system when he was admitted.
Klum and Seal: Yup, it’s over
Heidi Klum and Seal have confirmed that they are separating after seven years together, according to People magazine. “While we have enjoyed seven very loving, loyal and happy years of marriage, after much soul-searching we have decided to separate,” Klum says in a statement. “We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other very much, but we have grown apart. This is an amicable process, and protecting the well-being of our children remains our top priority, especially during this time of transition.” Seal and Klum are parents to Leni, 7, Henry, 6, Johan, 5, and Lou, 2. No zinger of a remark here — just sadness.
