Lot of famous deaths in last couple of days. I believe she said she got info from internet. I use internet all the time for info.

Log in to Reply J Bernard Jones August 21, 2012 Bayer saved my life when I had a minor, but potentially deadly, heart attack in 2009. Now I’m on one 82mg per day dose. It really makes a hell of a difference. Log in to Reply Miry August 21, 2012 Amen! Log in to Reply pjc722 August 21, 2012 I am very happy she survived and that she is now using her personal experience to hopefully get women to pay attention to what they think is nothing more than joint pain, half the time. Now, just take care of yourself, Rosie. We need a funny foul mouth know it all lesbian comedian/actress to tell us how it is a lot more than we need a quiet one. ;^) LOVE U Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
