Kate Beckinsale is one of the more active celebs on social media, but it’s normally about her lifting shit in the gym or showing off her perky chichis in pretty places. Alas, over the weekend, the posts were a bit more grim. Kate was in the hospital getting treated for a ruptured ovarian cyst and, obvi, wasn’t looking to thrilled about it. Naturally, someone was an asshole in the comments section.
HuffPost says Kate posted on Sunday about her ordeal and that even the morphine wasn’t helping. In fact, it was making her cry. While I could understand happy tears over being that tranquilized, it doesn’t seem like Kate was jumping for joy:
A ruptured cyst can cause abdominal and pelvic pain, require immediate medical attention, AND you have to put up with hospital food on top of that. I’d cry, too! Someone (and clearly not a Serendipity fan) commented on Kate’s photo, “But first let me take a selfie.” A- I mean, LOL. But B- Kate was having none of this person’s sarcasm because she says the only reason she went so #natural with the upload is because she and her mom saw the paparazzi outside the hospital when they left and wanted to beat them to the punch:
“It’s actually not a selfie. My mum took it. In fact I would not have posted it if we had not noticed someone in a car taking a photo of me leaving the hospital in a wheelchair.I have Instagram largely to have my own honest narrative and not have to always be ambushed by stories that come out that are invented, I’d prefer to say what happened than endure speculation and so I chose to share.I agree, it’s not a normal impulse. But it’s not normal to be photographed in vulnerable situations by people you don’t know either. (If you were interested in knowing the provenance of this, which, you probably are not.).”
I’m pretty sure Kate uses less rage in some of her scenes in Underworld. Also, I’m pretty sure I spent less energy and fewer words on my high school term paper than she did in her novella of a response to that troll. That morphine may make you cry, Kate, but please share – 9000 espressos each day aren’t cutting it for me like they used to.
