Chevy Chase recently returned home from a lengthy hospitalization due to a "heart issue." The comedy icon told Page Six on March 22 that he was laid up for over a month but kept his condition private. "These are my first few days home. I can only say how happy I am to now be back with my family. I'm feeling good," Chevy said. "I was in the hospital five weeks. A heart issue. So, for now, I'm around the house. Not going anywhere." Unfortunately for the actor, he's not loving his television experience while sitting at home, so he reads a lot. Current TV is "all dreck," he said. "I see actors, comedians, producers, screenwriters working and, God bless them, but I don't see anything great on television."

Tail of the week
The story was everywhere. A man was recently digging into his box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch when he suddenly found some, well, what appeared to be sugary shrimp tails. That man is actually a well-known comedian named Jensen Karp. He's also the husband of "Boy Meets World" star Danielle Fishel. "I usually wait for lunch to eat shrimp," she tweeted after her husband shared pictures of his Cinnamon Toast Crustaceans with his Twitter followers. Many in Hollywood, like Danielle, reacted with shock and jokes. Seth Rogen quipped that Jensen "won." Holly Madison said, "This is the most engaging saga I've seen on Twitter in a while." Chance The Rapper spoke of previously meeting the "Cinnamon Toast Crunch shrimp guy." It is quite a tail!
On March 21, Queen Elizabeth II got a new great-grandson after her eldest granddaughter, Zara Tindall, gave birth. The details are very un-royal, as her husband, retired rugby star Mike Tindall, shared on his sports podcast a few days later: It happened at home on the bathroom floor! "A little baby boy arrived at my house!" Mike said, noting that the birth happened so "quickly" that they didn't have time to go to the hospital. "So, it was run into the gym, get a mat, get into the bathroom, get a mat on the floor, towels down, 'brace-brace-brace,'" Mike explained. "Fortunately, the midwife, who was going to meet us at the hospital, wasn't that far away, so she drove up, got there just as we'd assumed the pos-ish," or the position, he continued, "and then the second midwife arrived just after the head had arrived," he said. The couple named the newborn — their third child and first boy — Lucas Philip.

On March 23, the "High School Musical" star posted videos from Cole's spring training game in Florida (and yes, she wore a Pittsburgh Pirates jersey — presumably Cole's — to the game). "Do u like sports?" she captioned a photo from the game alongside pal GG Magree. "Cause we do." Just a few weeks ago, Cole told reporters that the actress would make it to some games. "She's awesome — I love her," he said. These two have caught some love!
Kylie Jenner faced backlash this week after encouraging her social media followers to donate to an acquaintance's GoFundMe page. The man in question, makeup artist Samuel Rauda, was recently involved in a car accident. It appeared that Kylie donated $5,000. Many fans were livid as they perceived this as Kylie asking fans for money, despite the fact she's a billionaire. On Instagram, Kylie defended herself, saying Samuel "isn't my makeup artist and unfortunately we don't have a personal relationship anymore." She shared the fundraising post on Instagram, she said, to "gain more awareness if anyone also felt compelled to share or donate." The reality TV star said she does "things from the heart and I try to be helpful whenever I can be." She added, "I don't know how all of this got so twisted but his family has reached out … and are very appreciative."
Jessica Walter — the actress who famously starred as Lucille Bluth on "Arrested Development" and voiced Malory Archer on "Archer" for more than a decade — passed away at her home in New York City on March 24. She was 80. "It is with a heavy heart that I confirm the passing of my beloved mom Jessica. A working actor for over six decades, her greatest pleasure was bringing joy to others through her storytelling both on screen and off. While her legacy will live on through her body of work, she will also be remembered by many for her wit, class and overall joie de vivre," her daughter, Brooke Bowman, said in a statement to Deadline. Following her death, Hollywood stars took to social media to mourn the actress, with on-screen son Jason Bateman tweeting, "I will forever remember my time with her, watching her bring Lucille Bluth to life.
