News Of Nora Ephrons’ Health Leaked By Friend Liz Smith
OOPS. Interesting that this all was revealed on twitter. I had my story up before any MSM because I watched it happen. I follow lotsa authors. I shall not eulogize her yet. Awful this has become public as she is dying. Reminds me of Jackie O all over. The whole ‘death watch’ aspect. Have enjoyed much of her work. So leaving her now to die in public. Gods.
Director and writer Nora Ephron — best known for films such as You’ve Got Mail, Sleepless in Seattle and Julie & Julia, is ailing, TMZ reports.
Premature reports of her death circulated after longtime friend Liz Smith posted a eulogy on The Women on the Web, but according to TMZ, she is still alive and the nature of her illness has not yet been confirmed.
