Sarah Silverman Has Been Off The Grid Because Of This LIFE-THREATENING CONDITION…

Whew, that sounds SCARY.

On Wednesday, Sarah Silverman revealed that she’s been “off the grid” recently because she was in the hospital battling a dangerous case of epiglottitis.

The comedian took to Facebook to reveal she was at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center thinking she only had a sore throat, when in actuality she had to be immediately treated for a condition that made her epiglottis swell and block the flow of air through her windpipe.

The Wreck-It Ralph alum thanked the medical professionals who treated her, and opened up about the near-death experience, saying:

“There’s something that happens when three people you’re so close to die within a year and then YOU almost die but don’t. (That was me. I’m the one that didn’t die.) It’s a strange dichotomy between, ‘Why me?’ and the other, ‘Why me?'”

She also recounted her time at Cedars, saying:

“They couldn’t put me fully to sleep for the recovery process because my blood pressure’s too low. I was drugged just enough to not feel the pain and have no idea what was happening or where I was. They had to have my hands restrained to keep me from pulling out my breathing tube. My friend Stephanie said I kept writing ‘was I in an accident?'”

And then she went home and things normalized…kinda.

“When I woke up 5 days later I didn’t remember anything. I thanked everyone at the ICU for my life, went home, and then slowly as the opiates faded away, remembered the trauma of the surgery & spent the first two days home kind of free-falling from the meds / lack of meds and the paralyzing realization that nothing matters. Luckily that was followed by the motivating revelation that nothing matters.”

And it wouldn’t be a Sarah Silverman post without some observational humor:

“I couldn’t speak for a while and I don’t remember a lot of my ‘lucid’ time, but Amy (the Zvi) told me I stopped a nurse – like it was an emergency – furiously wrote down a note and gave it to her. When she looked at it, it just said, ‘Do you live with your mother?’ next to a drawing of a penis.
Also, when I first woke up and the breathing tube came out, I still couldn’t talk and they gave me a board of letters to communicate. My loved ones stood there, so curious what was going to be the first thing I had to say. They followed my finger, rapt, as I pointed from letter to letter until I finally spelled out, ‘Did you see Hello My Name is Doris.'”

Lol. Also, good thing she’s okay. GEEZ! Take care of yourself, lady!

Sarah Silverman talks Michael Sheen: ‘He classes me up’

Sarah Silverman talks Michael Sheen: 'He classes me up'

Sarah Silverman is currently dating “Masters Of Sex” star Michael Sheen and has been since 2014, but she can’t stop gushing about the actor. She revealed, “He really classes me up and I just pull him right down to my level unfortunately for him. I could go on and on.”

When asked who played the role of Bill Masters, she joked, “Bill Masters is played by the sexy, gorgeous, astoundingly brilliant – I’m just stalling because I can’t remember his name. Michael Sheen, who is also my real-life lover.”

When speaking about her depression issues to “Glamour” magazine, she said that she has learned to control it. She revealed, “I’ve lived with depression and learned to control it, or at least to ride the waves as best I can. I’m on a small dose of Zoloft, which, combined with therapy, keeps me healthy but still lets me feel highs and lows.”

She added, “I still have downward spirals, days when I have to drag myself onstage to do stand-up or I’m just tweeting Morrissey lyrics from my bed. But there’s one thing I know that I used to not know: It will pass.”

Sarah Silverman Is About to Get Schooled in ‘Sex!’

Sarah Silverman & Michael Sheen Out For A Romantic Stroll In New York City

Well talk about convenient!  The hilarious Sarah Silverman has signed on to appear in the second season of Showtime’s Masters of Sexwhich happens to star her boyfriend, Michael Sheen.  Did they meet on set?  

Silverman will recur as Helen, the former lover of Annaleigh Ashford’s Betty. As Ask Ausiello previously dished, Helen is a palm reader who really believes she’s psychic. She’s also a closeted lesbian who is still in love with Betty — who, you’ll remember, was planning to wed Greg Grunberg’s Gene. From what we hear, Betty is likely the brassy blonde’s soul mate.

I love this news.  I’m obsessed with Masters of Sex and find the acting and writing amazing.  I think Silverman will make a great addition to the cast – and think she can pull off the 50’s/60’s look really well.  If her role is really to be the brassy ex- lover of Betty- I feel like she can make for some very funny and AWKWARD scenes.  I can’t wait for the show to come back on this summer!

Silverman will also be seen in Seth MacFarlane’s A Million Ways to Die in the West, out later this month.

‘Wreck-It Ralph’ Sequel in the Works?!

The 2013 National Board Of Review Awards Gala

I clearly have young kids, because I get really excited about animated sequel news.  Not that I don’t love and usually prefer original projects – but when your kids love characters – and you watch the movie no less than a million times – a new story line is always welcome.  One of our recent favorite is Disney’s Wreck-It Ralph with voices from John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman.  And rumor has it that they are working on a sequel!  Variety reports:

Composer Henry Jackman, who created the music for the 2012 original, told Collider in an interview about “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” that Disney is in the early stages of development on a “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel. He remained tight lipped beyond that, however, as he believed the film is a sure thing.

“I can’t tell you more, not because I’m being coy, but I believe that it is officially on the cards,” he said. “I don’t know any more other than a story is indeed being written. I’d be very surprised not to. I’m not blowing my own trumpet. Forget about the music. Just the movie itself I thought was a fantastically imaginative and creative piece of work.”

It really is a cute movie and fun for both boys and girls.  Sarah Silverman’s character is adorable and she’s hilarious in real life.
