Rosie O'Donnell has suffered a heart attack. The talk show host and comedian experienced the health problem last week and is now recovering at home. The 50-year-old star credited her survival to quick Internet research on her painful symptoms and a Bayer aspirin she had seen recommended in ads. She wrote on Monday (20.08.12) in her usual poetical verse form on her blog: ''Thank god/saved by a tv commercial/literally.'' Rosie said she had a stent inserted after doctors found that her coronary artery was 99 percent blocked. In a statement her representative Cindi Berger told website People.com: ''She is now home and resting comfortably. She is very, very lucky.'' Rosie added online: ''They call this type of heart attack/the Widow Maker/i am lucky to be here.'' Earlier this month she shared the news that her fiancée Michelle Rounds was diagnosed with desmoid tumors, a very rare affliction. »
