Nick Cordero’s wife says he may need a double lung transplant to recover from coronavirus

Nick Cordero’s wife says he may need a double lung transplant to recover from coronavirus

Nick Cordero would likely need a double lung transplant to heal the damage he’s suffered from complications of Covid-19.

On Thursday, the Broadway star’s wife Amanda Kloots told “CBS This Morning” host Gayle King that “a lot of things would have to line up” in order for a transplant to take place.

“That is most likely the possibility,” Kloots said of the transplant. “A 99 percent chance that he would be needing that in order to live the kind of life that I know my husband would want to live.”

She said Cordero is still “extremely weak” after being in the intensive care unit of the hospital for three months.

She visits him in the hospital every day, she told King, calling it “vicious circle or the ICU dance because you just feel like you’re in this momentum of going around, around, around like a hamster wheel.”

But, still, Kloots said she is trying to remain positive.

“They told me four times that he won’t survive. Sometimes even he won’t survive through the night, but he has,” she told King. “He’s fighting. I see it every day. Nick’s doctor sees it. And as long as he’s in there and fighting, I’ll continue to fight with him.”

She continued: “I tell him every day before I leave, I say, ‘Okay, here’s what you have to focus on. The two of us sitting in our new house, Elvis is in bed and we’re listening to ‘Our House’ in our, you know, home in Laurel Canyon.”

Cordero and Kloots are parents to 1-year-old son, Elvis.

Cordero, who was admitted to the hospital in late March, is out of a coma and is Covid-negative, according to his wife. He had his right leg amputated and had received a temporary pacemaker for his heart that has since been removed. He is now “stable,” Kloots added.

“He is doing okay. He’s stable,” she said. “He can still open his eyes, and when he is alert and awake, he’ll answer commands by looking up or down, yes or no questions. When I’m asking him, he will even try to smile or move his jaw. The nurses have all said that he answers my questions the best.”

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s new video stuns fans with a surprise appearance by Kylie Jenner

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s new video stuns fans with a surprise appearance by Kylie Jenner

When the music video for Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s first collab dropped Friday, one revelation left fans stunned: Kylie Jenner.

The music video for “WAP” features the two rappers luxuriating in a huge, pastel-toned mansion — strutting down hallways and dancing with cheetahs.

About halfway in, the music stops and is replaced by the sound of clicking heels. The camera zooms in on the edge of a cheetah-print gown and slowly moves up. Anticipation is built. Then, it is revealed: Jenner, who says nothing in the video yet warrants a 25-second pause.

Many fans, it seems, were not exactly thrilled — so much so that a petition to remove Jenner from the video has already received more than 33,000 signatures in less than 24 hours.

The description of the petition gets right to the point: “The video was perfect until we saw K and I wanted to throw my phone.”

On person took matters into her own hands, editing Jenner’s part out of the video and uploading it onto Twitter, where it has almost 300,000 views.

Jenner isn’t the only cameo in the “WAP” video. Artists like Normani, Mulatto, Sukihana and Rubi Rose are given cameos toward the end, in an effort to uplift fellow female musicians.

The problem many have with Jenner’s appearance is rooted in her history of what’s been coined as “blackfishing,” an attempt at mimicking the look and style of Black women. Just this year, Jenner posted a photo of herself on Twitter in a long, curly blonde wig with noticeably darker skin.

“When will your family be done cosplaying Black women?” one user bluntly asked.

Her appearance has become so denounced that Betty White began trending on Twitter in an effort to have White replace Jenner in the video.

But regardless of some fans’ opinion of Jenner, the video has been a hit, garnering 21 million views on YouTube in less than 24 hours.
