I guess not even glamour and fame can protect your health. It’s true that sometimes even the big Hollywood celebs get sick. Here are the stars that have been recently battling some sort of sickness. Some serious, some not so serious and some that I can’t even believe made it to the headlines.
Nicole Richie’s fiance and baby daddy, Joel Madden is thought to have cataracts. These make him more sensitive to bright lights and so he usually will be seen wearing sunglasses.
Salma Hayek is currently over her health issues, at least until she decides to have another baby. The Hayek suffered from gestational diabetes when she was pregnant with her baby girl. Although she appears to be back in full health, this type of diabetes is not only known to recur with a subsequent pregnancy, it can also place the person at risk for Type 2 diabetes.
Valerie Bertinelli who has been busy promoting her new book that goes into great detail about her marriage to Eddie Van Halen won’t give up any information about his illness. The details of what he’s suffering from are unknown but he is undergoing tests and he has beaten cancer before.
And moving on to mental health issues, although Britney Spears has been showing signs of improvement, it’s still not enough for the courts who is keeping her father as conservator for the troubled star until July 31.
And lastly, it came out this past week that Patrick Swayze is suffering from pancreatic cancer. No scandal involved here, but heartbreaking nonetheless. We can only hope that his treatments are going as well as his reps are saying they are. He is currently travelling to Stanford University’s cancer centre every day, with his wife Lisa Niemi.
