alyssa milano says shes brokenhearted after her best friends uncle dies of coronavirus

Alyssa Milano said she’s brokenhearted Sunday after her best friend’s uncle died of coronavirus, then criticized President Donald Trump for subjecting Secret Service agents to potential infection amid a ride around the medical facility he’s staying at.

‘My best friend’s uncle just passed away from covid 19,’ the actress-activist, 47, tweeted, receiving a number of sympathetic replies amid the bad news.

Media personality Dr. Dena Grayson wrote, ‘OMG….this is so sad. Much love to your best friend and family,’ while Cheri Jacobus wrote, ‘So sad. We don’t know how many more…’

Nancy Sinatra wrote, ‘I’m so sorry’ to the alum of shows including Who’s the Boss?, Melrose Place and Charmed.

Milano, who has recovered from a previous bout of COVID-19, had fierce criticism of Trump (who is currently battling the virus) after he took a ride around Walter Reed Hospital in a black SUV to greet to his supporters Sunday.

Milano quoted a tweet from Walter Reed attending physician Dr. James P. Phillips, MD, illustrating the medical risks for Secret Service agents sharing close quarters with the president while he is trying to stave off the virus.

‘That Presidential SUV is not only bulletproof, but hermetically sealed against chemical attack,’ the doctor said. ‘The risk of COVID19 transmission inside is as high as it gets outside of medical procedures. The irresponsibility is astounding. My thoughts are with the Secret Service forced to play.’

Milano made clear she was astounded by president’s willingness to put the health of others in jeopardy for the ride.

‘I haven’t said an ill word about him since I heard about his diagnosis. But what the f*** is he doing?’ she wrote. ‘Is he trying to kill people? He’s locked in a sealed SUV with members of secret service. No one told him this was a dangerous idea? A bad idea? A selfish idea?’

Phillips, who also serves as Chief of Disaster Medicine at George Washington University Emergency Medicine, said that all occupants of the SUV will need to sequester for at least two weeks after riding in the vehicle with the president, (who revealed he and First Lady Melania Trump had been diagnosed last Thursday).

Phillips said that ‘every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential “drive-by” just now has to be quarantined for 14 days.

‘They might get sick. They may die. For political theater. Commanded by Trump to put their lives at risk for theater. This is insanity.’

Judd Deere, a spokesman for the White House, said to USA TODAY that ‘appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect the President and all those supporting it, including PPE;’ and that ‘the movement was cleared by the medical team as safe to do.’

Trump earlier Sunday said in a video clip on Twitter that he has a new insight into the coronavirus after his diagnosis.

‘It’s been a very interesting journey, I learned a lot about COVID,’ he said. ‘I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn’t the let’s-read-the-book school, and I get it, and I understand it.’

Milano, who battled COVID-19 beginning in March, said last month that she continues to suffer from symptoms, including hair loss, shortness of breath and heart palpitations.

‘It doesn’t feel like you’re only physically sick,’ she told Yahoo. It feels like there’s hallucinations because of fevers, there’s weird dreams. I think it’s because the brain is affected. That’s why people lose their sense of smell.’

She called coronavirus ‘a really rough, rough illness.’

Eva Mendes offers a brutal response to The Morning Show host Larry Emdur

eva mendes offers a brutal response to the morning show host larry emdur

He may be a pin-up for middle-aged women across Australia, but did The Morning Show host Larry Emdur once catch the eye of Hollywood siren Eva Mendes?

According to his telling, the pair once ‘had a moment’ while crossing paths in a hotel foyer in Sydney in 2007, but his co-host Kylie Gillies has never believed him.

Fortunately, they had the opportunity to set the record straight on Friday when they interviewed Eva, 46, in her capacity as a McHappy Day ambassador.

'He's been dining out on this story for years!' Eva Mendes (right) offered a brutal response on Friday after The Morning Show host Larry Emdur (left, with Kylie Gillies) claimed they'd 'locked eyes' and 'had a moment' while crossing paths in a hotel foyer in Sydney 13 years ago

As they wrapped up their interview, Kylie, 53, said: ‘Eva, as we say goodbye, I just want to clear something up, if I could, if you can indulge me for just one moment.

‘Larry, my co-host here, says that he was in LA about 13 years ago, he was in a hotel foyer…’

Larry, 55, then interrupted: ‘No, Sydney!’

Kylie continued: ‘Sydney, it was? I thought it was LA. It was in Sydney. And he saw you in the foyer and that you locked eyes – this is what he’s telling me – and that you had a moment.

‘Now, he’s been dining out on that story for such a long time. Have you ever seen this face before?’

Before Eva got a chance to respond, Larry jumped in: ‘The story was – that’s not the story – the story was that I locked eyes on you while you were looking the other way. That’s the story I’ve been telling!’

'Now I remember!' The 46-year-old actress played along with the joke by pretending she remembered the 'look' she gave Larry at the time, and pulled a disgusted expression

Humouring the hosts, the Hitch star replied: ‘That makes more sense. That I recall!’

She then played along with the joke by pretending she remembered the ‘look’ she gave Larry at the time, and pulled a disgusted expression.

‘That’s it! Just before you called the police,’ replied Larry with a laugh. ‘That’s exactly… now I remember!’

Of course, if the ‘moment’ did indeed happen, it wouldn’t have led to anything.

Larry has been happily married to wife Sylvie since 1995, and the couple share two adult children, daughter Tia and son Jye.

Eva was also in a long-term relationship with filmmaker George Augusto at the time, but they would split three years later, in 2010.

She began dating Canadian actor Ryan Gosling, whom she met on set of The Place Beyond the Pines, in 2011. 

They share two daughters, Esmeralda, six, and Amada, four.

Sarah Paulson plays the gaslighting mother from hell in first trailer for Hulu horror movie Run

sarah paulson plays the gaslighting mother from hell in first trailer for hulu horror movie run

Golden Globe winner Sarah Paulson plays the mother from hell in the first trailer for Hulu horror movie Run, which premieres November 20.

The Tampa-born 45-year-old portrays overbearing single mom Diane Sherman – who isolates, homeschools, and cares for her 17-year-old daughter Chloe played by newcomer Kiera Allen.

Chloe is a paralyzed, wheelchair-bound straight-A student who’s told by Diane that she suffers from serious medical conditions including asthma, diabetes, arrhythmia, and hemochromatosis.

However, Chloe is horrified to discover that the label on one of her many prescription bottles peels away to reveal the drugs were actually dispensed under Diane’s name.

The brave teenager then embarks on a journey to uncover why her overprotective mother has been gaslighting her and keeping a ‘dark, sinister secret from her.’

The camera then cuts to action shots of Chloe on the streets solo, crawling with her hands past a staircase, and eventually hospitalized on a ventilator.

‘You may not understand this right now. But I am doing what I know is best for you,’ said Diane ominously.

‘I know that I scared you. But I will spend every minute of our lives making sure you never feel that way again.’

Filmmaker Aneesh Chaganty made history casting Kiera, who’s the first disabled actress to lead a thriller for an American studio since Susan Peters starred in John Sturges’ 1948 film The Sign of the Ram.

‘To see a character in a wheelchair who is, not to give too much away, but who is really kind of a hero and is her own person, and has her own mind and her own journey independent of her disability, and to see a character whose journey is really not defined by her disability – it’s defined by who she is as a person is a really cool thing,’ Allen told Collider of her big-screen debut back in 2018.

The Columbia University creative writing student and the Ratched producer-star officially wrapped Run in December 2018, but Lionsgate has delayed the January 24, 2020 release date twice – partially due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Run is eerily similar to Hulu’s hit 2019 series The Act based upon the real-life story of a mother suffering from Munchausen syndrome by proxy, who convinced her daughter she had ‘leukemia, asthma, muscular dystrophy, and brain damage.’
