Mezzo-soprano Wendy White has been hospitalized after falling about eight feet from a platform to the stage during a performance of Charles Gounod’s Faust at New York’s Metropolitan Opera. The Met Opera says White is in stable condition and undergoing further tests. Her injuries do not appear to be serious.
White was performing the role of Marthe in Saturday’s performance. Met spokesman Peter Clark said in a statement that White fell as she entered backstage during Act III onto a platform that is connected to the scenery. The opera did not say how she fell.
A black curtain was brought down and intermission announced. White was seen by the house doctor and taken by ambulance to the hospital. The performance resumed with Theodora Hanslowe substituting in the role of Marthe.
EW has confirmed that iconic soul singer Etta James’s health has taken a turn for the worst. It’s been a year of medical hardship for 73-year-old James. According to Lupe De Leon, her manager of 30 years, “Etta has a terminal illness. She’s in the final stages of leukemia. She has also been diagnosed with dementia and Hepatitis C. She’s in a home right now and mostly sleeps. She is under the care of a live-in doctor from Riverside Community Hospital and two others who have placed her on oxygen. Her husband is with her 24 hours a day, and her sons visit regularly. We’re all very sad. We’re just waiting.”
De Leon mentioned James’s most recent release, The Dreamer, saying, “It’s ironic because she sounded so vibrant and powerful on it. It was only recorded two and a half years ago.” James will forever be remembered for her legendary 1961 recording of “At Last,” the song President Barack Obama chose for his first dance with wife Michelle at the 2009 inauguration festivities.
E! News and Fashion Police correspondent Giuliana Rancic’s double mastectomy was a success — and she is “already cracking jokes,” her husband Bill Rancic told E! Online today. “Her surgery lasted about four hours and the doctors were very pleased with the result,” Bill said.
Giuliana and Bill announced her surgery on the Today show Dec. 5, explaining that after initially opting for a double lumpectomy coupled with radiation, the conservative treatment hadn’t been as effective as they’d hoped.
Reality star and mom-of-19 Michelle Duggar has suffered a miscarriage. EW has confirmed that the star of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting was at a routine physical to find out her 20th baby’s gender when she learned that she had miscarried. “Earlier today at a routine doctor’s appointment, Michelle and I received the sad news that we lost the baby,” said Duggar’s husband, Jim Bob, in a statement. “Michelle is resting comfortably at home with the support of the entire family. We are grateful for all the thoughts and prayers, but ask for privacy during this difficult time.”
The 45-year-old ignited a fair amount of controversy when she announced her pregnancy last month, as she has experienced complications before. Baby no. 19, Josie, was born premature and spent four months in neonatal intensive care early in 2010.
One-time Teen Mom star Amber Portwood, 21, says she has been diagnosed with both bipolar and dissociative disorder, E! News reports. The reality TV celeb — who was hospitalized earlier this year for an alleged suicide attempt, as well as faced charges last year of domestic battery against her ex-fiancé — says her bipolar diagnosis came three years ago. “When I went to rehab for two months,” she continued, “they diagnosed me with disassociative disorder too, which makes me black out. People don’t understand what it’s like.”
Kim Richards of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has entered rehab for a second time for undisclosed reasons, reports People. The former child star — aunt of Paris Hilton and sister of fellow former child star and Housewives castmate Kyle Richards — previously spent a short stint in rehab after allegations of alcoholism on last January’s Beverly Hills finale. This season, she has abstained from alcohol on air, but did admit that she is taking several different prescription medications for anxiety and depression, plus an anti-seizure medication which can be used to treat alcoholism.
Zsa Zsa Gabor has been rushed to a Los Angeles hospital after another health scare. Publicist John Blanchette says the 94-year-old actress was taken by ambulance to Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center on Wednesday after her feeding tube became loose. Blanchette says Gabor’s husband Frederic von Anhalt noticed bleeding in her stomach where the tube came unattached
Gabor has been hospitalized repeatedly since falling out of bed and breaking her hip in July 2010. She had a leg amputated in January.
The Obama administration has announced $60 million in additional funding to fight AIDS transmission in sub-Saharan Africa, and a new special envoy to raise global awareness about the deadly disease: Ellen DeGeneres. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says the actress will “bring her sharp wit and big heart, and her impressive TV audience and 8 million followers on Twitter” to support U.S. efforts to save the lives of those suffering from HIV/AIDS.
Clinton says the money will help scale up and assess new prevention strategies. She said Tuesday that more effective prevention methods were driving infections down, making it possible to treat more people. She said that is allowing health campaigners for the first time to “get ahead of the pandemic,” and make progress toward establishing an AIDS-free generation.
