‘First Wives’ writer critical
Sunday, January 11th, 2004
Author Olivia Goldsmith, who wrote “The First Wives Club,” is in critical condition at Lenox Hill Hospital after a dangerous reaction to anesthesia for plastic surgery, her lawyer said yesterday.
Goldsmith suffered the setback Wednesday morning, said the lawyer, Steven Mintz. He described her condition as unconscious and “not able to speak.”
Officials of the hospital denied that anyone named Olivia Goldsmith was a patient, but also said hospital policy prohibited releasing any information about patients.
Mintz insisted that Goldsmith was at Lenox Hill.
“The First Wives Club” was made into a movie starring Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler and Diane Keaton.
Mister D: On behalf of all the BetteHeads, we wish you a speedy recovery, Ms. Goldsmith!
