Penelope Ann Miller learned a painful traveling lesson
August 7th, 2019 under Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]

When some people travel, they start packing a week beforehand. While that is them, it is not Penelope Ann Miller nor me. We wait until the last minute and that can be dangerous.

So much of a risk, Miller shared her painful lesson with us. She wrote, “Rule #1 don’t pack last minute Rule #2 don’t rush to the airport. #fracturedfoot 😪”

The moral of the story, pack way beforehand or you will need an ice pack on one of your body parts.

Get well soon. A fractured foot sucks. Broke mine when I was 20 and it still hurts me until this day.

John Davidson and Sting are on the road this summer and both singers are forced to take a break from performing for their next few gigs per doctor’s orders.

The Hollywood Squares’ host, wrote today, “Some bad news: due to a gallbladder that’s gone rogue, I will be having emergency surgery to have it removed, and my next 3 gigs have to be canceled. I feel terrible about this, but I’m in the hospital until it’s out. I hope you’ll come out to another show after this month, and my sincere apologies to the venues and attendees of The Guthrie Center, The Farmstand and Surflight Theatre.”

While we know what is wrong with the 77-year-old, the Police singer has not revealed what is ailing him. All the 67-year-old’s people said is, “It is with great regret that Sting’s concerts previously scheduled for Thursday, July 11 at jazzopen in Stuttgart, Germany and Friday, July 12 at the Castle Garden in Slavkov u Brna, Czech Republic will be canceled. As reported earlier this week, Sting is under the weather and under doctor’s orders, and was forced to also cancel concerts in Ghent, Belgium (Monday, July 8) and Munich, Germany (Wednesday, July 10). Sting sincerely regrets disappointing or causing any inconvenience to the fans.”

Hopefully, both of them will be better very soon and back on tour soon delighting their fans. Although, personally I have never seen a good Sting concert and I have seen him 3 times, two-times solo and once with The Police. All three were huge disappointments to me.


Brian Wilson postpones his tour because he is ‘mentally insecure’
June 7th, 2019 under Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]

Brian Wilson was set to go on tour this month, but he announced yesterday that he has to postpone the dates. The 76-year-old singer has been very open with his mental illness struggles throughout his life. He has been able to control it with the right doctors and medicines, but he had a recent setback.

Over the last year, he has had three surgeries on his back and the third one left him feeling “strange” and it has been scary. Then he elaborated, “I was not feeling like myself. Mentally insecure is how I’d describe it. We’re not sure what is causing it but i do know that it’s not good for me to be on the road right now so I’m heading back to Los Angeles.”

Even though physically he feels great, mentally he does not. Therefore, he says, “I’m going to rest, recover and work with my doctors on this.” He promises his fans, “I know this will be something I can AGAIN overcome.”

Recently I saw the movie Love & Mercy with John Cusack on Tubi TV that is about Wilson’s struggles with mental illness and the doctor who took advantage of him. If the Beach Boys singer can overcome that, then he can overcome this. This time his wife Melinda is by his side and that doctor is not doing everything to keep them apart.


Greatest Showman’s Keala Settle suffered a stroke a week before the Oscars
November 28th, 2018 under Sick Bay. [ Comments: none ]

Keala Settle gave a show-stopping performance at the Oscars singing This Is Me from The Greatest Showman, but almost did not happen. A week before the big moment, she suffered a mini-stroke brought on by Moyamoya disease.

The weeks leading up to that night, she was busy promoting the movie all over the world, got food poisoning in Japan and was just worn down. When she stepped into the rehearsal studio, she broke down and cried. Then she felt a pain in her head and the right side of her body went numb. All she could do was scream for help. Within a half hour, she had feeling again, but something was seriously wrong with her.

When she got help, she found out she had a mini-stroke that required surgery. But that did not stop her from rehearsing that Wednesday and eventually performing flawlessly on Hollywood’s biggest night.

On April 27th, she got the surgery. Now seven months later, she tells People, “The universe had its chance to take me and I’m still here.” Then she added, “I’m just so grateful to be alive and I’m not giving that up.”

The show must go on and it is going on for her. She will next be heard on the reimagined The Greatest Showman soundtrack singing that song with Missy Elliott. Then in January, she will be seen in Fox’s live version of Rent.

Jamie King shared a photo of her arm bandaged up because of a lot “broken and torn things” and said that she was hospitalized for three days. What happened and why is she in “casts, slings, braces- oh, my!”?

She wrote, “I would do anything for my character and for my cast and crew. Including getting busted the f*ck up. Though, I prefer my body to be in one piece.” She did not explain what happened on the set of Netflix, but it better be good.

Get well soon! And hopefully, you will be able to use your hands again soon.
