The current issue (which came out last Friday) of The National Enquirer has a story titled WILLIAM SHATNER SURGERY TURNS INTO LIFE-OR-DEATH DRAMA which would be pretty big news if it were true. The story states that Mr. Shatner suffered heart complications during hip surgery. After being sent tips to the story, TrekMovie.com checked in at Shatner HQ and was told that Bill was fine, that he has had no surgeries and the whole thing was made up.
Bill has now put out a statement on his official site forums:
I’m in absolute perfect health. I’ve never felt better in my life.Somebody made up an absolutely foolish story.My Best, Bill
By the way….here is a ShatnerVision from last week of Bill making his Superbowl pick and talking about his plans for a party.
Apparently when Bill first heard of the report he thought the whole thing was kind of funny and he was even thinking calling up the reporter and having some fun with it.
Anyway…nothing to see here…so just move along. Just another tabloid flare-up.
