49-year old actress Demi Moore, mother of 3 daughters from former husband Bruce Willis, suffered convulsions after smoking an undisclosed substance, according to an emergency 911 recorded call from last Monday in which she was described as being “barely semi-conscious.” The recording was released by Los Angeles fire officials and captures the few minutes it took paramedics to arrive as friends surrounded the actress who had collapsed. In the recording, an unidentified female is asked by the emergency operator “is she breathing normal?” The female responded and stated “No, not so normal. More kind of shaking, convulsing, burning up.”
When the operator asked if Moore had ingested or smoked anything, the female replied: “She smoked something. It’s not marijuana but it is similar to incense,” according to a BBC News report, although the complete reply was redacted on the advice of the city attorney’s office citing federal medical privacy rules. “She’s been having some issues lately with some other stuff,” said the female.
Asked by the operator if this had happened before, the female voice said: “There’s been some stuff recently that we’re all just finding out.”
Apparently, as the call was about to end, Moore began to improve when a man got on the telephone and told the operator that Demi Moore had calmed down and began speaking.
Demi Moore’s publicist had previously declared that Moore was suffering from exhaustion post her divorce from Ashton Kutcher, 16 years her junior at 33, last November.

Sajack said that he and Vanna White, who he commented smelled “great,” would take 2 ½ dinner breaks at Los Arcos (now Acapulco Restaurant) in Burbank across from NBC and usually have around 4 margaritas, or more, only to return to the studio and have difficulty recognizing letters of the alphabet.
“I had a great time,” Sajak continued. “I have no idea if the shows were any good, but no one said anything, so I guess I did OK.”
