Conchata's husband, Arnie, tells TMZ, the actress -- best known for her role as Berta -- was recently transferred to a long-term care facility following more than 4 weeks in ICU.

The actress, who once tipped the scales at 300 pounds, was not diagnosed with coronavirus.

Conchata suffered a cardiac arrest and renal failure while in ICU, according to her husband. She was transferred to a treatment center Arnie describes as a respiratory unit where she is on a respirator and dialysis.

Her condition is stable and she is "somewhat aware of her surroundings, but can't talk or communicate," according to Arnie.

Arnie tells TMZ he speaks with Conchata's nurse daily but he can't visit her due to COVID-19.

"It's going to be a while before there's any recovery," Arnie said. "It's all neurological. There's nothing we can do to speed up the process. We are hoping for the best."

The news comes 2 days after comedian DL Hughley collapsed onstage during a comedy routine in Nashville, Tennessee.

Hughley, 57, took to social media to explain he was diagnosed with COVID-19 but he was asymptomatic. Hughley postponed his tour to quarantine at his home for 14 days.

California is experiencing an all-time high in coronavirus cases following much-publicized public gatherings and protests in that state.

On Saturday, Gov. Gavin Newsom reported a spike of 4,515 new cases -- a record for most new cases of coronavirus in a single day.

Comedian and radio host DL Hughley suffered what appeared to be a syncope spell and passed out during his standup comedy routine in Nashville, Tennessee on Friday, Jun 19.

Syncope is the medical term for fainting or a loss of consciousness. Syncope can be heart (cardiac) or neurological. It can also be caused by dehydration, orthostatic hypotension and a stroke.

The first hint of trouble came when the 57-year-old comic began slurring his words. The audience thought his slurred speech was part of the act and laughed.

Seconds later, DL slumped backwards and slid off his stool to the stage as a friend rushed to him.

It was obvious that DL lost consciousness as several people carried the limp comedian off the stage.

According to The Hollywood reporter, DL was hospitalized in stable condition with what his rep said was "exhaustion".

"He was suffering from exhaustion after all the week's work and travel, and was kept overnight at the hospital for tests under doctor's orders. He is awake and feeling better, and wishes to thank everyone for the very kind prayers and thoughts," Hughley's representative told The Hollywood Reporter.

My loyal readers know that there is no such medical diagnosis as "exhaustion". That is typically a faux condition used by celebrities when they don’t want to disclose the real ailment.

Sandrarose.com send prayers to DL for a speedy recovery.

Harvey Weinstein is "likely" to remain under his doctor's care at Manhattan's Bellevue Hospital until his sentencing on March 11, his attorney confirmed.

The disgraced movie mogul was rushed to the medical center on February, 24, while en route to Rikers Island prison after being found guilty of sexual assault and rape.

Weinstein, 67, complained of chest pain and shortness of breath shortly after hearing the split verdicts in a Manhattan courtroom.

Upon his arrival at the hospital, Weinstein was treated for heart palpitations and high blood pressure.

Weinstein's wife Georgina Chapman (pictured with Weinstein in 2014) has not been to the hospital to visit him with his 2 youngest children. But he speaks to all of his children by phone.

In response to numerous media inquiries about Weinstein's discharge date from the hospital, Arthur Aidala, an attorney on Weinstein's legal team, told Variety that Weinstein will "likely" stay there until his court date next week.

Aidala denies reports that Weinstein is malingering or faking his illness to avoid being transferred to jail.

"(He's) likely there 'til sentencing on March 11. The treating doctors think that's where he should be - it's that simple," he said.

"It's no secret he was under several doctors' care over the course of the last couple of months. The doctors at Bellevue, up until today, at least, have determined that he's not ready to go to a non-medical facility. It's totally up to the medical team to make that determination. Obviously, nobody wants anything to happen to Mr. Weinstein because of his health."

Aidala added that the Department of Corrections is "making their own determinations" about Weinstein.

Meanwhile, Weinstein is getting the VIP treatment on the hospital's prison ward. There are no guards posted outside his room, and he has free run of the ward.

Recently, photos surfaced showing Weinstein in a media room watching television while relaxing on a sofa. His wheelchair was next to him. A source said Weinstein is ambulatory and he pushes his wheelchair like a walker.

Convicted felon Harvey Weinstein is confined to a wheelchair at Bellevue Hospital, where he was taken after suffering chest pains in a Manhattan courtroom on Monday.

A jury found Weinstein guilty of 2 out of 5 sex assault charges. He faces 25 years in prison when sentenced.

Soon after the guilty verdicts were announced, Weinstein, 67, suffered chest pains and was rushed to Bellevue Hospital's emergency room.

The government took away the walker Weinstein used throughout the trial. He is now confined to a wheelchair after suffering from high blood pressure and heart palpitations.

Weinten's attorney says the disgraced movie mogul is worried that his health will suffer behind bars on Riker's Island, where the judge ordered him taken after he is released from the hospital.

"He's doing as well as he can. He is a little grumpy and proclaiming his innocence and saying that he wants everyone to keep fighting for him," spokesman Juda Engelmayer said.

"Harvey is always worried about his health and worries what prison time will do to him. His physical health is not strong enough to survive prison," Engelmayer said.

Weinstein is also worried about his two children who ned their father.

Weinstein was convicted on the 2 lesser charges of rape and forced oral sex involving two women who never reported him to police.

He was acquitted on the more serious charges, which would have landed him in prison for life.

It's the day after Thanksgiving - traditionally Black Friday in America - when most Americans hit the malls to take advantage of after Thanksgiving sales.

Rapper French Montana is thankful to be out of intensive care and in a regular hospital room for the holidays. He posted an image on Instagram.com that shows his fresh haircut after spending 2 weeks in ICU in a San Fernando Valley hospital.

Montana captioned the photo:

"Thank you Everyone for all of the prayers, love and support. I’m finally out of ICU and am getting better one day at a time !!!"

The rapper was hospitalized on Nov. 21, after he collapsed at home and complained of abdominal/chest pain, nausea and shortness of breath. Medics who responded to his home reported he had an elevated heart rate (palpitations).

Some of Montana's fans were worried that the EKG monitor in his room shows his heart rate is still high at 127. But that heart rate is Ok if he's moving around. What doctors want to see is how quickly his heart rate returns to normal (60-100) while he's at rest.

Montana's hospitalization comes a few weeks after the Moroccan rapper celebrated his 35th birthday in Africa. Rumors are swirling that Montana picked up a nasty infection that weakened his heart. This type of cardiac infection is potentially deadly. Montana's signs and symptoms can also be caused by narcotic abuse.

Online sources say Montana's worried ex-girlfriend Khloe Kardashian checks up on him daily.

Kevin Hart is on a long road to recovery after injuring his spine in a serious single car crash in Calabasas, California.

A surgeon fused the 40-year-old comedian's back after his spine was fractured in three places, and now Hart will be transferred to a rehabilitation facility where he will remain for 4 months.

Hart's camp originally said he did not injure his spinal cord, but sources say Hart did suffer an injury to his spinal cord that affects his mobility from the waist down.

Sources close to the situation tell The Blast Hart needs intensive physical therapy at a rehab facility where he can be monitored closely.

The Jumanji star is reportedly in extreme pain and is still dependent on potent painkillers.

According to The Blast, as soon as doctors and physical therapists determine Hart is stable enough to do the physical therapy in an outpatient environment, he will be released from the rehab facility.

Hart routinely updated his social media with photos and videos that showed him working out or running in marathons.

"It helps that he was physically in such great shape," one source told The Blast.
