Broadway Star Nick Cordero’s Leg Will Be Amputated Amid His Fight with Coronavirus

Celebrities News | Coronavirus | Nick Cordero Comments Off on Broadway Star Nick Cordero’s Leg Will Be Amputated Amid His Fight with Coronavirus


Nick Cordero‘s wife Amanda Kloots has an upsetting update amid his battle with coronavirus.

The 41-year-old Broadway actor has been in the hospital for two and a half weeks while battling the virus and there have been issues with blood flow in his right leg. Earlier in the week, Amanda said that Nick may never walk again and now she has revealed that his leg is being amputated.

“We are on day 18 of Nick being sedated in the ICU. It is April 18. We got some difficult news yesterday. Basically, we had issues with his right leg with clotting and getting blood down to his toes. And it just isn’t happening with surgery and everything,” Amanda shared in the new update on Saturday.

“So, they had him on blood thinners for the clotting and unfortunately the blood thinners were causing other issues: blood pressure and some internal bleeding in his intestines. So we took him off the blood thinners, but that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg. So the right leg will be amputated today,” Amanda added in the Instagram Stories video.

Amanda has not been able to see Nick while he’s been in the hospital.

“A plead… I know this isn’t possible but today is miracle day so what not ask? I just wish I could see him. Hold his hand. Touch his face. I do believe this would help him WAKE UP,” she wrote on her stories.

We’re sending lots of love and strength to Nick, Amanda, and their loved ones during this time. Make sure sing and dance along with Amanda every day at 6pm EST/3pm PST.

Major League Baseball Players & Employees To Take Part in Coronavirus Antibody Study

Baseball | Celebrities News | Coronavirus | Sports Comments Off on Major League Baseball Players & Employees To Take Part in Coronavirus Antibody Study


Major League Baseball stars, stadium workers and executives are set to be part of the first antibody study aimed at understanding the COVID-19 novel coronavirus.

According to People, the study will include over 10,000 people and will help to provide an answer on just how many people have been infected in the United States.

The MLB players, and employees will have their fingers pricked for a blood sample, which will then be tested to see if they have any COVID-19 antibodies. If they do indeed have them, that indicates that they had COVID-19 at one point, even if they never showed symptoms.

Researchers say that the antibody test can also provide a better understanding of if having the virus will give people an immunity to ever having it again.

Almost all of the MLB’s 30 teams agreed to take part in the study run by Stanford University, the University of Southern California and an antidoping lab in Salt Lake City, and most participants will receive the testing kits by mail to their homes.

Unlike members of the NBA and NHL, the MLB has had no reported cases of players having the coronavirus.

However, the MLB has still postponed their season.

Kathy Griffin Hospitalized for Coronavirus-Like Symptoms, But Can’t Get Tested

Celebrities News | Coronavirus | Kathy Griffin Comments Off on Kathy Griffin Hospitalized for Coronavirus-Like Symptoms, But Can’t Get Tested


Kathy Griffin has been hospitalized for coronavirus-like symptoms.

The 59-year-old comedian took to Twitter on Wednesday (March 25) to reveal that she is in isolation at the hospital and to slam President Trump‘s response to the virus. She also revealed that she can’t get tested.

“He’s lying. I was sent to the #COVID19 isolation ward room in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms,” Kathy wrote. “The hospital couldn’t test me for #coronavirus because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions. #TESTTESTTEST”

Kathy shared the photos while reposting Trump‘s tweet where he writes, “Just reported that the United States has done far more ‘testing’ than any other nation, by far! In fact, over an eight day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight week span. Great job!”

Kathy‘s hospitalization comes just a week after she sadly shared that her mom Maggie had passed away.

New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton Has Coronavirus

Celebrities News | Coronavirus | Football | Sean Payton Comments Off on New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton Has Coronavirus


New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton, whose name is always in contention for NFL’s coach of the year, has been diagnosed with Coronavirus.

He wanted to come forward with his diagnosis to warn everyone about the importance of shutting down activity during this time.

“This is not just about social distancing,” the 56-year-old coach told ESPN. “It’s shutting down here for a week to two weeks. If people understand the curve, and understand the bump, we can easily work together as a country to reduce it. Take a minute to understand what the experts are saying. It’s not complicated to do what they’re asking of us. Just that type of small investment by every one of us will have a dramatic impact.

“I was fortunate to be in the minority, without the serious side effects that some have. I’m lucky. Younger people feel like they can handle this, but they can be a carrier to someone who can’t handle it. So we all need to do our part. It’s important for every one of us to do our part,” he added. “There are hundreds of people right now in tough predicaments, fighting for their lives. Let’s be part of the solution, not the problem. We can easily help reduce the numbers of those impacted. We have to do our best to beat this and I know we can.”

He revealed he did not feel well this past Sunday, took the test on Monday, and was diagnosed today (March 19). He is resting at home and fatigued.

Sean Payton and the Saints have come extremely close to getting into the Super Bowl the past few years with Drew Brees, their star quarterback, at the helm.

We’re wishing everyone with Coronavirus a speedy recovery. See which other celebrities have been diagnosed.

Coachella & Coronavirus: Festival Might Move to October 2020

2020 Coachella Music Festival | Celebrities News | Coachella | Coronavirus Comments Off on Coachella & Coronavirus: Festival Might Move to October 2020


The 2020 Coachella Music Festival is likely going to be pushed back from April to October due to the Coronavirus outbreak.

The festival promoter Goldenvoice is working with officials on a plan to move the festival to the weekends of October 9 and October 16, according to Billboard.

The Stagecoach Music Festival, which always happens the weekend after Coachella’s second weekend, will possibly be moved to the weekend of October 23.

There have already been several cases of Coronavirus in Riverside County, which is where the Coachella fairgrounds are located in California.

Billboard reports that it is unlikely that every artist currently on the lineup will be able to fit the postponed Coachella into their schedules, but if the headliners are able to make it work, the festival will probably be postponed. The outlet says that if the festival is not postponed, it likely will be canceled.

WILL YOU STILL attend Coachella if it takes place in October?

Will Coachella Be Canceled Because of Coronavirus? Industry Insiders Speak Out

2020 Coachella Music Festival | Celebrities News | Coachella | Coronavirus Comments Off on Will Coachella Be Canceled Because of Coronavirus? Industry Insiders Speak Out


The 2020 Coachella Music Festival is just one month away and fans are wondering if the annual festival is going to get canceled amid Coronavirus concerns.

It was just announced that the Ultra Music Festival in Miami will no longer take place in late March due to concerns about the virus and industry experts expect more festival cancellations to happen.

“I wasn’t worried about the virus until about 10 minutes ago when I saw that Ultra was postponed,” one source told Billboard.

Van’s Warped Tour founder Kevin Lyman told the outlet, “I wouldn’t doubt over the next 20 days if we see a festival a day canceled… There’s no one managing it at the federal level, which means this is going to be decided by local officials who wield a ton of power.”

Coachella happens across two weekends in April and the country music festival Stagecoach happens at the same venue one week later.

“They still have a little more time before pulling the cancellation trigger, but unless the situation improves soon, the momentum might be too much for Goldenvoice to stop,” another source said. “If this is going to work out, things need to start going right very soon.”

Amid all of the Coronavirus fears, the U.S. Surgeon General has made a plea for the public to stop buying this one item.
