Bettie Page Is In The Hospital

December 6, 2008 / Posted by:

Well, this fucking sucks. Icon Bettie Page is in the intensive care unit of a Los Angeles hospital after she suffered a heart attack on Tuesday. Bettie’s agent said she was hospitalized three weeks ago with pneumonia and she was about to be released when she had a heart attack. 85-year-old Bettie was transferred to another hospital on Friday. She’s listed as “critically ill.

A friend of Bettie’s family told AP that she’s currently in a coma. Her agent wouldn’t confirm it, but said, “I would not deny that.”

I have the urge to call my rockabilly chola cousin to see how she’s coping with this. I don’t want to bother her though, because I’m sure she’s holding a candle vigil in front of her Bettie Page shrine. I’m not joking. She really has a Bettie Page mini-shrine.

Good thoughts to Bettie.
