Demi Moore was rushed to the hospital a week ago after suffering a seizure at a birthday party she was hosting in her home and although the actress was reportedly treated for anorexia and substance abuse, Patty Jenkins, a close friend, says she is recovering.
“I just saw her and she’s doing great. I think she’s doing much better than it’s made out to be,” Jenkins told E! Online. Demi Moore is currently in Sherman Oaks Hospital.
“Demi is awesome and so strong. I also hate when people make it a bigger drama than what is going on. She’s great.”
Despite Jenkins’s claims that reports of Moore’s condition have been exaggerated, a frantic 911 call made by her panicked friends revealed the actress had “smoked something” and was suffering from “convulsions” on the night she was taken to hospital.
The star’s friend can be heard on the tape of the call saying: “We need an ambulance here as soon as possible. Why is an ambulance not on its way right now? She smoked something. It’s not marijuana, but it’s similar to, it’s similar to incense, and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort.”
The dispatcher then asked the terrified pal if Demi, 49, was conscious and breathing.
The friend replied: “Yes, well semi-conscious, barely … And she’s convulsing. She smoked something, but the reaction was accidental. It’s accidental.”
Another friend, a woman, then takes the phone and reveals Demi had taken another substance before the smoking incident.
The operator asks: “Is she breathing normally?”
To which the second person responds: “No, um, not so normal, but more sort of shaking, convulsing. But burning up … She’s been having some issues lately with some other stuff, so I don’t know what she’s been taking.”
There have been conflicting reports on what Moore was doing, doing “whip-its,” inhaling gas, smoking “something,” prior to the 911 call.
