World Knows About Tori Spelling’s Surgery, Despite Dean McDermott’s Desire To “Keep It Private”

Tori Spelling Undergoes Emergency Surgery

Private isn’t a word most people associate with Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott.  For example, remember when Dean accidentally tweeted a photo of Tori topless? Of course, we completely understand why the couple want to keep information about an emergency surgery on lock. On the other hand, when fans get accustomed to you tweeting every aspect of your lives and then you don’t tweet about a widely-reported medical emergency…yeah, you can understand why some people might have assumed something was drastically wrong.

Luckily for everyone, the Home Sweet Hollywood star and her hubbie are doing just fine. “Tori underwent emergency surgery over the weekend due to complications from her c-section,” Spelling’s rep told People. “She remains in the hospital and is resting comfortably.” Tori has had a total of four c-sections during just as many pregnancies, two falling within a single year. Tori’s last c-section was on August 30 when she delivered son Finn Davey and now we are losing consciousness due to how many times we’ve had to type “c-section.” Meanwhile, Dean responded this afternoon to frantic followers worried that something more dire was going on with his spouse. “She’s good. Just testing,” Dean finally reported on Twitter, “I didn’t want to alert the world. No TMZ knows. Was trying to keep it private.” Sorry guys! Meanwhile we’re going to give all the credit for Tori’s recovery to their baby…Dr. CoolBaby.

Nick Cannon Quits Radio Show Due To All These Blood Clots

Man, what is going on with Nick Cannon these days? Mariah Carey‘s man just announced that he’s apparently leaving his New York 92.3 radio show Rollin due to a pretty heinous sounding aliment. “A bitter sweet morning. I have to stop my radio show. Doctors orders,” Cannon tweeted mournfully. “The Doctors found blood clots in my lungs and said if I don’t slow down and stop working so hard then it’s a wrap!” Jeez, where does Nick record this radio show from, inside an asbestos mine? The basement of a burning building? A mace factory?

We really hope Cannon is okay, though, seeing as how this is only the latest in a series of recent medical problems for him. The singer was initially hospitalized in Aspen on January 3 due to kidney failure. Sure, it gave us a chance to see pics of him and Mariah Carey getting goofy in a hospital bed, but that just does not seem worth it. “I’ve been in the hospital since Friday,” Nick explained on his show this Wednesday. “I was having a lot of pain in my back. … I learned that I had blood clots in my lung … an enlarged ventricle in the right side of my heart.” As Cannon cheerfully tweeted following his announcement today, “‘Even Super Man had to sleep!’” Hopefully rest, clear fluids and the pudginess of dem babies will get Nick back on his feet soon. In the meantime, maybe Mariah should stop spritzing that diamond dust everywhere? Sure, it looks amazing, but it cannot be easy on the pulmonary system.

George Clooney Defends Demi Moore, Slams Release Of 911 Call

George Clooney, what’s it like it be so handsome and so gallant? It’s exhausting, right? George may have hit up the SAG Awards yesterday to represent for The Descendants, but he still made a point to stick up for friend Demi Moore  while he was at it. “It’s always troubling when people you know and people who you care about end up going through a difficult time,” Clooney told The Insider on the red carpet. before lambasting the decision to release Demi Moore’s 911 call to the public. “I think it’s a stupid thing,” he explained. “I think it’s stupid for anyone, whether they’re celebrated or not, I don’t believe their 911 call should be broadcast around the world, but that’s my opinion.” Man, we want George Clooney to defend us to the press; he does it with such class.

Moore’s call, placed by a friend from the star’s L.A. home last Monday, was stripped of any references to drugs; some allege, however, that the call indicates Demi’s daughter Rumer Willis was present at the time of the crisis. Said Clooney, “What’s happening and what people have to remember is that people are getting famous from Facebook and Twitter, so it’s not just about people here, it’s about everybody. There won’t be any version of privacy. So it’s going to be a tricky thing.” It is a chilling thought that anyone’s 911 call could be made public. Celebrity emergencies aside, do you know many people get things stuck in their butts and have to be rushed in for a humiliating E.R. visit? Or, um, so we’ve heard.

Demi Moore Released From Hospital, 911 Call To Be Edited For Drug References

Demi Moore: now is the time to just do you. And only do you. According to E! Online, Moore has allegedly left Sherman Oaks Hospital in L.A. after being admitted on Monday; the Margin Call actress reportedly received treatment after suffering seizure-like symptoms, a crisis which prompted a late night 911 call. The site also confirms that Ashton Kutcher will be returning to the city from his trip to Brazil today, which begs the question: would you be helped or hindered by a visit from Ashton Kutcher after having a seizure? Think about it. You don’t have to answer right away.

While we’re glad to hear Demi is almost certainly recuperating on the couch in her Forever Lazy, TMZ alleges that the 911 call made on her behalf must be edited to remove drug references before being released to the public. The L.A. City Attorney allegedly recommended that the clip be redacted to protect Moore’s patient confidentiality. Sounds like a reasonable, ethical decision…that implies all sorts of bummer scenarios about Demi’s hospitalization. If true, the City Attorney’s decision could lend credence to the claim that Moore was using nitrous oxide (or some other recreational substance) prior to her medical emergency. So…maybe hold off on that visit for a little while, Ashton. Everyone loves a Edible Arrangement, is all we’re saying.

Did Nitrous Oxide Use Land Demi Moore In The Hospital?

Demi Moore’s hospitalization earlier this week is sad news no matter what the cause. We can all agree on that, right? While allegations of exhaustion, drug use and/or anorexia have been flying fast and furious, TMZ is now alleging that it was nitrous oxide inhalation that brought on the Margin Call star’s medical emergency Monday night. The site’s sources allege Demi was doing whip-its (i.e. inhaling nitrous oxide recreationally) when she experienced “the symptoms of a seizure.” Call us a gaggle of prudes (it’s already our band name), but whip-its do not seem like the drug of choice for 50-year-old millionaire moms. Then again….what does?

According to TMZ, a friend of Demi informed paramedics of the situation, having called 911 after Moore “lapsed into semi-consciousness.” Wow, we are really hoping this is just a weird, dirty rumor and that the cause of Demi’s crisis turns out to be something more benign, like too much dancing. Please let it be too much dancing.

Demi Moore Rushed To Hospital For “Exhaustion,” Rep Says

Hoo boy. In news that gives us a terrible sinking feeling inside, Demi Moore was rushed to the hospital last night after paramedics were summoned to the actress’ home around 10:45 p.m. After a half-hour evaluation, Moore was brought in for treatment. TMZ claims that Demi’s crisis was brought on by alleged substance abuse, but Demi’s spokesperson offers a more benign, though equally sad, explanation. “Because of the stresses in her life right now, Demi has chosen to seek professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health. She looks forward to getting well and is grateful for the support of her family and friends,” Moore’s rep explained. Here’s hoping Demi has a swift recovery and receives the gift of no more late-night hospital rides in the foreseeable future. Or ever.

Rick Ross Is Okay Following Seizure, Still Giving Concert Tonight

We knew Rick Ross would be back on his feet soon. Or in his case, back on a private plane immediately. Hours after TMZ reported about Rick Ross’s seizure, which left the Teflon Don unconscious on a plane flying from Ft. Lauderdale to Memphis, Ross has posted a video to his Twitter account in which he looks as healthy as ever. Personally we demand a full-body cast whenever we feel strep throat coming on, so we have no idea how this guy is already upright.

Even more impressive (and baffling!) than the quick turn around time on Rick Ross’s recovery is the fact that rapper is still planning to perform at his concert in Memphis tonight, writing with the video, “#Memphis here I come….” We don’t know how concerts work, so maybe Rick and his people would lose so much money it would bring on another seizure, but still! How can anyone be all business so soon after a medical emergency? Take a long bath and watch some Breaking Bad, man! No need to be a hero.

Rick Ross Suffers Mid-Flight Seizure, Falls Unconscious

Not the Teflon Don! TMZ reports that paramedics found Rick Ross unconscious after he suffered a seizure mid-flight earlier today. An eyewitness says that Ross blacked out shortly after takeoff while traveling from Ft. Lauderdale to Memphis. The plane reportedly made an emergency landing in order to get the rapper help; EMTs performed CPR before hustling him off to a hospital.

While there’s been no official confirmation or statement from the rapper, we consider the fact that the Boss’ Twitter account has been updated to be a great sign! “never dat homie..we outchea #mmg powercirle!!!!,” Ross’ account reads, after a fan tweeted his concern. Rapper Wale also tweeted that Rick was doing well, writing, “I just talked to Ross … he’s 100 pct ok..” We hope Rick Ross continues to do well, though we can’t say we’re surprised to hear he’s feeling better. Have you seen this guy? You’d need a tank to take him down.

Ellen DeGeneres Has A Heart Scare, Calls 911!

We’re so glad she’s okay! Ellen DeGeneres had chest pains yesterday and 911 had to be called! The emergency occurred during a producers meeting at the Warner Bros compound, resulting in one of Ellen’s staff members calling for help. The Burbank Fire Department sent a team a little before noon. Ellen explained on her show that the pains started the night before saying, “… What happened was last night I was having chest pains so this morning paramedics came to look at me …”

Luckily, she’s fine and was seen walking without any assistance after the Fire Department left. The whole explanation she gave on her show was truly hilarious with her continuing with, “… The paramedics were strippers that I had called!…” Ellen tweeted a thankful message reassuring everyone she was okay, writing, “Thank you all for your concern. I wasn’t feeling great so I called the paramedics, but I’m fine. The mouth to mouth was totally unnecessary.” Humor really is the best medicine! We’re so happy to see her in top form after that scare.
