Aretha Franklin Opens up to Wendy Williams
Tuesday March 1, 2011
ARETHA Franklin has opened up to Wendy Williams about her recent health struggles.
The music legend said a pain that started out in her side was so bad it “nearly brought [her] to her knees.”
“That discomfort was my first inkling that something was wrong, that something wasn’t what it should be,” Franklin told Williams.
“The pain was so hard it nearly brought me to my knees. So I said, ‘The concerts are over. I have to go and find out what is wrong.’”
Franklin also discussed the star-studded tribute paid her at last month’s Grammy, her dramatic weight loss and the disappointment of having to cancel her anticipated tour.
“In December we all found out that you were having abdominal surgery,” Williams presses.
“Hmm … Is that what you heard?” Franklin replied.
