Given the ominous and cryptic nature of the reports on comedian Bernie Mac’s ailing health a couple days ago, no news is probably good news.
That’s the current scenario regarding the 50-year-old’s condition.
It came a day after Mac’s beleaguered publicist Danica Smith issued the following, rather vague statement that shot down a then-smattering of death reports: “Bernie Mac is still alive and being treated in a Chicago hospital for pneumonia and is expected to make a full recovery. (He is) responding well to treatment and will be released soon.”
Smith went on to say that Mac’s hospitalization for pneumonia was unrelated to his decades-long battle with immune-system disorder sarcoidosis, which has been in remission since 2005.
