Rosie O'Donnell had a heart attack last week, she revealed in a blog post on Monday.

O'Donnell said that, after she helped a heavy woman get out of her car, she began developing chest pains:


i became nauseous my skin was clammy i was very very hot i threw up
maybe this is a heart attack
i googled womens heart attack symptoms
