Rosie O’Donnell Suffers Heart Attack

It turns out TV can save your life. Well, in the case of 50-year-old Rosie O’Donnell, it did. The actress-comedian was suffering a heart attack last week and said on her blog, “Thank god/saved by a tv commercial.literally.” A quick Internet search on her symptoms as well as an ad for Bayer aspirin helped the star when she was suffering with a heart attack.

After doctors found that O’Donnell’s coronary artery was 99 per cent blocked, they inserted a stent. Her rep Cindi Berger told People, “She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky.”
