Rosie O'Donnell Suffers a Heart Attack

Calling it a "miracle" she's still alive, Rosie O'Donnell suffered a heart attack last week and is now recovering at home.

O'Donnell, 50, credited her survival to quick Internet research on her painful symptoms and a Bayer aspirin she had seen recommended in ads.

"Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally," she wrote Monday in her usual verse form on her blog.

O'Donnell said she had a stent inserted after doctors found that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked. In a statement on Monday, her rep Cindi Berger tells PEOPLE, "She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky."

"They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here," she wrote.

Earlier this month, O'Donnell, 50, shared the news that her fiancée Michelle Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a very rare affliction.

O'Donnell said her own health problems started on Aug. 14 after she helped "an enormous woman" struggling to get out of her car in a parking lot in Nyack, N.Y.

A few hours later, her chest ached, both arms felt sore as if they were bruised, she became nauseous, and had clammy skin.

"maybe this is a heart attack," she wrote. "i googled womens heart attack symptoms/i had many of them/but really? – i thought – naaaa."

She took the aspirin recommended for people who think they are suffering a heart attack but didn't call 911. She said that hundreds of thousands of women die each year of heart attacks and that many never dial the emergency number.

"by some miracle i was not one of them," she wrote, adding: "know the symptoms ladies/listen to the voice inside/the one we all so easily ignore/CALL 911/save urself."

Wynonna Judd’s Husband Loses Left Leg After Motorcycle Accident

Wynonna Judd‘s husband, Cactus Moser, suffered serious, but not life-threatening, injuries in a motorcycle accident on Saturday night (August 18). Now, it’s becoming clear just how serious those injuries are. TMZ reports that Moser has had his left leg amputated at the Rapid City Regional Hospital as a result of the crash.

A rep for the singer says that the 55-year-old Moser — who is also Judd’s drummer — “severed” his leg in the wreck along U.S. Highway 16 in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Doctors were forced to amputate the leg above the knee, in addition to performing surgery on the recently-married musicians hand.

“Judd and Moser appreciate all of the quick medical and police responders as well as the hospital staff and well-wishes from family, friends and fans,” the unnamed rep tells TMZ.

Taste of Country has also reached out to a representative for Judd for further comment, but had not received a response at press time. Check back often for more details as things develop with this story. Judd has canceled all of her shows planned for this week.

Wynonna Judd’s Husband Seriously Injured in Motorcycle Crash

The husband of country legend Wynonna Judd was involved in a serious motorcycle accident on Saturday night, shortly before the singer was set to begin performing in Deadwood, S.D. Michael “Cactus” Moser is also Judd’s drummer. The two were riding separate motorcycles when he crossed the center line and hit a car.

The Associated Press reports that Moser was air-lifted to the Rapid City Regional Hospital with serious, but non-life threatening, injuries. He was cited for not having a license to operate a motorcycle and for crossing the center line. Judd was riding ahead of the 55-year-old on U.S. Highway 16 in the Black Hills. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.

“The outpouring of prayer and support from friends, family and fans has been a blessing to both Cactus and I,” Judd said in a statement. “Cactus is a champion. I love him deeply and I will not leave his side.”
The two were married in June. According to a statement at her website, Judd has also cancelled four shows scheduled for next week in Canada. The couple lives together in Nashville.

Review of the book Men of Sunday by Curtis Eichelberger

This book was a bit hard to get through because I am not really into football, I only got the book because I was interested to see how faith plays a part in football. It took me about 2 days to read this book and I liked a few things about it.

I like the quote on page 2 "Prayer is not a rabbit's foot or superstition. We are talking to a GOD who cares of every facet of our lives. If it is important to them, it is important to GOD." I like this because GOD is our friend and we can pray to him at any time, he is never busy and as long as we ask for something in his will or in his son's name Jesus he will answer it for us. He is a loving GOD. It also mentions in the next couple paragraphs about how the football players speak to GOD striaght from their heart, and that's what GOD wants, not some prayer you recited, saying it over and over again. He wants us to be honest and pray about something real.

I also like what a football coach said on page 12, " They decided to focus on Paul's letter to the Philippians, which we wrote during his imprisonment in Rome, encouraging Christians to be united in one another and to think of themselves not as individuals, but as being united in the body of Christ and belonging to each other."

I like the quote on page 28 as well which says, " When I go to bed at night, did I comprise today? Did I cheat anybody? Did I lie? Did I manipulate? It's like David said, "Lord, search my heart and see if there is anything hidden in me, expose it, because I want to be right with you." That was said by football player Singletary. I like that quote because we have to be honest with ourselves and with GOD to be his friend and we really have to do some soul searching to be honset.

The rest of the book was just ok and I didn't really see anything that stood out to be mentioned in my review. Overall it was a good book and distracted me from my life and I will be probably keep it for later on when I want to re-read it at some point.

Taylor Swift Buys Home Near the Kennedys on Cape Cod

After getting a taste of the Kennedy lifestyle this summer, Taylor Swift apparently feels she could get used to it.

The Nashville-based singer, 22, who is dating Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s son Conor, 18, has bought a house in Hyannis Port, Mass., across the street from Conor's grandmother Ethel, according to several reports.

A realtor in Hyannis, Mass., confirmed the purchase to PEOPLE, saying Swift bought the property last week.

"It's in a beautiful location and right across the street from Conor and the Kennedys," the realtor says. "It's a beautiful home. She got a nice home, paid fair price. The house was on the market for two to four years."

The realtor said the property – said to be a 13-room home overlooking Nantucket Sound with seven bedrooms and five bathrooms – was originally listed for $14 million but was "way overpriced." Local reports say Swift scooped it up for $4.9 million.

Swift, who is said to be "swept off her feet" by Conor, has many admirers in the Kennedy clan, with Ethel's daughter Rory calling her "a great friend of all of ours."
