Luke Perry, Kenny Anderson

Actor Luke Perry, pictured left, suffered a massive stroke and is hospitalized, according to TMZ. Former NBA star Kenny Anderson is also hospitalized after he suffered a stroke.

Perry, who is best known for his starring roles on Beverly Hills 90210 and Riverdale, suffered a massive stroke at his Sherman Oaks, CA home. Paramedics responded to the actor's home around 9:40am on Wednesday.

The 52-year-old was recently seen filming episodes of Riverdale on the Warner Bros. lot, according to Hollywoodlife.com.

Anderson, 48, is recovering from a stroke he suffered at his Pembroke Pines, Florida home. Sources tell the NY Post Anderson was diagnosed with high blood pressure and high cholesterol but he wasn't taking his anti-hypertension medication enough.

Natasha Anderson, Kenny's wife, issued a statement Tuesday thanking those who expressed concern for her husband.

"Our family is extremely grateful for all the prayers and love that we have received over the last few days. We appreciate you continuing to respect our privacy as Kenny heals," the statement read, according to the New York Post.

Anderson, who played for 9 NBA teams over the course of his 14-year career, currently coaches the mens basketball team at Fisk University in Nashville, Tenn.

A stroke is a medical condition caused by lack of blood flow to the brain or bleeding in the brain resulting in cell death. Women have a higher risk of strokes than men.

    Jesus, Mary, and Joseph! I can't! Just this past weekend a co worker of mine had a stroke and is currently in the hospital. My momma is on blood pressure meds and I'm constantly begging her to "remain calm" b/c she still has the little!! my blood pressure has been high since I was a teen, but my doctor always told me it's b/c I'm "high strung" and/or always nervous when I'm at his office, but I'm at the point where I want to be on them meds!!

  • Phillybruh

    They are serious my aunt is recovering from one, wish them well.

  • oshh16

    I thought "Dylan" was so cute on 90210....
    But yeah strokes are not a game, it is important to know the signs and get help immediately, to lessen the damage they can cause.

  • Whiplash(lacejagger)

    Not Dylan? Omggggg I wanted him to be my boyfriend and I was only in the 4th grade back when 90210 first started.

  • bemetoo

    Why I thought they had a stroke together ??????????

  • SpiceGirl

    Speedy recovery guys...................

  • justlooking

    Because that's the way I read it. Lord forgive me, I thought that was ine helluva party.

    Hope they both have a successful recovery.

  • justlooking

    Please seek out another doctor. Please.

    Luke was my skinny white boy crush back in the day.
    He looks like a meth head/opioid addict in that pic though.
    I have no idea who the black dude is, but a full and speedy recovery to both of them.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Crazy. I just called up one of my customers this morning.. we'd spoken last Thursday and he asked me to follow up with him today. He told me he had just checked out of the hospital after suffering a stroke on Friday, and he just feels lucky to be alive. Makes you realize how short life can be.

  • Yoni7

    I was like "What were THEY smokin' on at the same time?" THIS was a write-up I read before posting. LOL

  • Yoni7

    Blessings to her on her recovery.
    How old is she, if you don't mind me asking.

  • LYRICS

    I know, I should've done that already, tbh. IDK how/y I haven't b/c I'm a borderline hypochondriac, but I more than need a 2nd opinion!

  • Yoni7

    Is this Anderson guy, Tami Roman's baby daddy?

  • bemetoo

    ???????????????????

  • Crazy tee

    He got the two daughter with Tammy from Basketball wives and I believe a child with DJ Spinderella

  • Yoni7

    Ok. I thought he seemed familiar.

  • DeJeri

    YESS. Dylan on 90210....

  • WinterIsComing

    Whew! Has that 90201 guy been having health issues for awhile because he is aging like milk. Hypertension is no joke, it’ll take you out this world or leave you as a shell of yourself with the quickness

  • Rayne

    Wow!!

  • WinterIsComing

    ?????? You hit the nail right on the head!

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Autie was trying to finish the post before lunch.

  • GodsGirlC

    yes

  • Topic Influencer

    Get well fellas. Didnt like the way Kenny did Tami, but he is ACC fam. And used to crush on Luke HARDT from 90210 days.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    My sorority sister suffered two strokes in one month because she would not take her meds. It was a low dosage & she thought it would not matter & she did not change her lifestyle.

  • Topic Influencer

  • DroneRivers

    Hope they both get well soon. Hypertension and high cholesterol are nothing to take lightly. Gotta change your diet and take those meds!

  • Yoni7

    Oh no! I don't like when the elderly hurt.

  • Alextra Ballard

    Smh...when I went to the ER, and was awaiting tew be admitted,every ten to fifteen minits,the ER operator would come over the loud speaker and give out some kinda code tawkin about possible ‘stroke victim’. I stayed in ER for quite sometime until a bed was ready on a reg floor. I must’ve heard about ten or more loud speaker calls about folks having a stroke.

  • Alextra Ballard

    When you’re having a stroke time is of the essence

  • NewNew

    Jesus

  • dru and neil

    I noticed that Luke Perry is not aging well when I started watching Riverdale, and wondered if something was wrong with him.

  • WinterIsComing

    ?????

  • dru and neil

    He does look like he does a ton of yard work and construction instead of acting...

  • NewNew

    I love this. It takes a real one to admit when they were mistaken. I hope she can see it too.

  • WinterIsComing

    But that bad that quick?

  • Alextra Ballard

    I truly hope they have no lasting affects from their stroke. The main culprit is paralysis

  • dru and neil

    But he’s the same age as Brad Pitt, who still looks good even for a stomp down alcoholic. Poor Luke is aging off a cliff.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    ??

  • dru and neil

    Yeah a couple folks on here owe me an apology and they should come forward as well.

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    Anderson 48? Perry 52? Oh my gawd, what is hollyweird feeding these guys? Maybe some of the real nasty ones can get in on it!

  • ?? Kari ?????????

    I agree!

    Aint that Tammy baby daddy?

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com Ms.Devereaux

    I see this EVERYDAY! The main excuse is I don’t want to be on medication my reply have you tried to change your lifestyle? Answer no! So how you expect your situation to change plus some ppl are in great shape work out eat healthy and still have to be in blood pressure meds. I try to explain to ppl that the medication will keep you alive until you change your lifestyle some folks will sit in my face with a BP of 198/110 and I’m low are you ok how you feeling they have my never store up!!

  • MISSMEWITDATBULL

    LOL!
    He was - like 25, 26 playing a 17 year-old.

  • Brooklyn23

    Get out of my head, indeed he is

  • oshh16

    Brad does look good for a yt 52.

  • leapyearpisces

    women MUST take heed to the birth control warnings. When they say DO NOT SMOKE while on birth control, that's what they MEAN! Almost most of the women (young ones at that) I know that had strokes were because they were smoking while on birth control.

  • Brooklyn23

    Haha

  • E-VannaRootsAllEvil

    This the Kenny Anderson that tapped Evelyn which resulted in a good ass whopping from Tami

  • NewNew

    Yikes! ?

  • oshh16

    Yep my trainer and good friend Dre was in excellent shape, he had started bp meds in like Sept of 2014 and had heart attack in Dec of the same year. God bless his soul. He was a good friend that became like family during a period of my life when I trusted really no dudes. I loved Dre and miss him.

  • Brooklyn23

    Him and the other guy what him name (?) that were on beverly hills 901234 were so fine. I saw the other dude Jason doe on some other show. Considering how Caucasians dont age well, he didnt look too bad especially if he's in his 50s like Luke.

  • Topic Influencer

    Im sorry Dru and Neil. This is a public apology for ragging on your comments from time to time previously. I will strive to be better.

  • Topic Influencer

    Him and that damn Gabrielle Carteris (Andea). Fukkas out here 28+ acting like they students at West Beverly HS. FOH

  • NewNew

    Gabrielle was a good actress but didn't fit the role. She could have been teaching at the damñ HS.

  • T Willis

    I didn’t know that was so common

  • Brooklyn23

    Oh no. Brad no bueno anymore. After hooking up with Angelina and pre-existing kids (the adopted ones) then havin his own that put like 20 yrs on him, I swear between him and Johnny depp me use to think both of them were fly as hell. But age and other factors(life) just well... did what it did to them. Them no bueno anymore. I tell you that guy Charlie hunam from 'sons of anarchy' he can get it. Him fly

  • Brooklyn23

    I didnt know about him and spinderella

  • Branch Davidian

    Damn Dylan....9021Old

  • oshh16

    I still loves Johnny.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Actually Brad turned 55 in December.

  • SoulfulLove

    He looked like he was in his 40s back then

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    We're not talking cracking we're talking shattering.

  • Chocolate

    Yep- my cousin had a massive one at 27 from bc...and while learning to walk again, got pregnant with twins when her husband just had a vasectomy smh! It was a mess

  • NewNew

    ?

  • R in NYC

    This is why I stay taking my pressure pills. Get well soon to both Luke and Kenny.

  • oshh16

    Thank you I think he look good for 55.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Luke Perry(whom I worked with on 90210) was a LOT older than his high school character on the show. That show was full of drama behind the scenes with the original bad girl Shannen Doherty.

  • The Chosen 1.

    yes, caucasians do age like milk.

  • Trace da Ace

    yup!! sho is!!! remember when her licence plate said "his cash" or something like that when they was going through the divorce?? that was funny as hell....

  • Trace da Ace

    WOW....well wishes sent to both of them.....it comes a time when you need to make serious life changes choices for better health!!!! #message

  • KcoolMuziq

    I first met Tami before she married Kenny and it wasn't a good experience it was while she was filming Real World LA,

  • leapyearpisces

    That sounds like a mess, but as long as both babies came out healthy (did they?), we will consider it a win. :-).

  • leapyearpisces

    Very, and sometimes it's not even smoking. My Co worker said she had a stroke at age 20 because of bc, and she has never been a smoker.

  • bemetoo

    Or that they stroke each other?????

  • Yoni7

    She shole did always look older than her cast mates.

  • Li-Wright

    You never know what they're taking outside of work (cocaine?). Cocaine is known to cause strokes.
    But they're too young for sure. Not taking meds, not exercising, eating right, it all adds up.

  • NewNew

    I see what you did there

  • Li-Wright

    There are a LOT and I mean a LOT of drug users out there: Meth, Coke, fentanyl....you name it. Something is wrong with Americans that we feel we have to be high to cope. Go meditate!

  • Vegas1989

    So true

  • Vegas1989

    A old co-worker had a heart attack and I heard it was real bad. But he didn't change his diet when he found out back in 2008 that he was a diabetic. He was still drinking coke cola, and eating top ramen with cheese for lunch. French Fries and get a special made breakfast burrito errry morning.... He only ate good for one week...SMH....

  • Yui

    I’m sorry ?

    (Though I’ve never ragg’d on ya)

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Damn that sounds bizarre.

  • Trace da Ace

    dang...that was more than 20 years ago!! I remember her on that show....it was like one of the first Real World shows!! you took me back with that one.... :)

  • NewNew

    I hope I'm not one of them ?

  • justlooking

    It's best to go and get another diagnosis.

  • justlooking

    Same here I read it twice, to be fa sure

  • stav

    Absolutely...the last part!

  • LYRICS

    RIGHT! We know they were old! Especially that Andrea! LMAO! She kinda end up being like the "mom" of the group!

  • D. Curl

    Yeah I think it has somethingsomething to do with the hormones

  • Sushi

    I'm not sure if I did, but if I offended you in anyway please forgive me.

  • Logan Roberts

    Get well guys. A stroke is nothing to play around with.

  • Reenaface

    I always thought that Luke Perry was a handsome man, I still do. He and Skeet Ulrich(Scream movie) are some handsome men, one of the few reasons why I watch Riverdale.

  • Reenaface

    Gabrielle Carter's was older than Shannen, Tori, and Jennie. Brenda, Donna, and Kelly.

  • justlooking

    Opinion

  • justlooking

    That's sweet of you, a new blessing is coming your way.

  • justlooking

    This is tickling me.

    Many moons ago, there was poster that use to complain about folks being "friends" offline and gang gang relations.

    This got me busting a gut.

    I'm standing in the gap for those who will not coming forward.

  • justlooking

    Well here's a virtual bouquet of flowers, cause me and you HAVE not seen eye to eye.

    I remember one time you changed your name and it took me a MONTHS to get it. HAWT Tears

    I olivejus sis

  • shauna

    That's the first thing I thought with them being so young, were they somewhere partying because cokeheads are often walking strokes waiting to happen.

    People just don't realize that they have a little more control over the ailments and diseases they invite into their lives with their bad and unhealthy habits.

  • Nina Ross

    Prayers

  • currvalicious

    Damn, she was learning to walk again & recovering from a massive stroke AND was still getting laid. Wow.

  • Chocolate

    Yep- we still tease then abt that lol.

    But since she is my 1st cousin, I can no longer get prescribed bc.

  • Chocolate

    Yes, they did thx! Thank God

  • Chocolate

    Her mom just passed of thrombosis...had multiple strokes over the years.
    High blood pressure is a silent killer, especially in the black community.

  • Chocolate

    Have you seen the obesity rate? It would be bizarre if all these morbidly obese ppl in the US DIDNT have health issues...it’s bizarre to me when I see fat ppl still smoking cigarettes and drinking soda

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    No, I was just thinking about the confluence of events.
    What are the odds of all that happening to one person.

  • dru and neil

    Awww happy to make you laugh!

  • dru and neil

    OMG you are so sweet! I was actually thinking of a couple folks on here who seem to run hot and cold all the time, but I’ll take this apology too! Y’all are the best on this board. ?

  • dru and neil

    Thank ya! ????

  • dru and neil

    No, I got a feeling they know who they are LOL!

  • dru and neil

    Look at all this lovin’ I’m getting! ???

  • dru and neil

    Charlie Hunnam is very handsome, loved him on that show, his character had the biggest heart. And Johnny Depo just started looking like stir fry sh*t practically overnight!

  • dru and neil

    Jason Priestly...yes I loved Brandon Walsh!

  • dru and neil

    People complaines about a lot of the characters looking too old to be teens. I think the only one that was actually young was Brian Austin Green. Luke did always look a lot older than everyone else.

  • Chocolate

    The chances are high when risks and protocols are ignored. She is genetically pre-disposed to thrombosis, over-weight and smoked while on bc. A massive stroke leads to lost faculties, and having unprotected sex during the waiting period of a vasectomy makes it lose its efficacy.

    But she was like you, in disbelief that all that well researched and pre-warned crap, could ever happen to her.

  • Alicia.Ashe

    Prayers I take high blood pressure meds now. I went two years without any medication. When I tell you those high blood pressure headaches are horrible. Take care of yourselves folks, take your medication and eat properly.

  • NewNew

    Phew! ?

  • Ghost

    ?????? For both! Take care of yourself folks...

  • SmellyMel

    My prayers to these two men and their families. May God grant them strength to overcome any obstacles. Wishing them a speedy recovery.

  • CaramelDrop

    Healing from a ruptured aneurysm that caused me to have a seizure and stroke I had this past 12/12. By all medical accounts I shouldn’t be here and/or should be very disabled. You would have to know me, to know something is wrong. I’ll be having the 2nd aneurysm coiled soon, all of this is a complete Wake Up call! Taking the BP medication isn’t enough- all this visceral fat has to be burned off. We as black women have to get serious about our health. Fine doesn’t equate to healthy.

  • Ebony Starr

    Prayers to you. You are so right about getting serious about our health.

  • Missy

    I remember whn the yt dude tried to expose her body & dragged her dwn the hall. Or smethng like that.

    I love "Charmed" and still watch the reruns. I read that the reboot is terrible. It was so funny. Commenters started repeating spells from the original Charmed against the new show.

    Prayers to both I was just watching Luke in a Hallmark NOW movie the day before.
