Hep, Hep, Hooray

Hollywood is reeling in the wake of news that high-profile guests at a recent Sports Illustrated party may have been exposed to Hepatitis A by an employee of celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.

The guests, which included such luminaries as BeyoncĂ© Knowles, former Guns ‘N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan, and a bevy of swimsuit models, have been asked to seek treatment to avoid contracting the disease:

Hepatitis A is caused by a virus spread by ingesting something contaminated with the feces of an infected person. Symptoms can include fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, nausea, abdominal pain and jaundice.

When reached for comment, Jennifer Hudson said, “I know I told BeyoncĂ© to ‘eat shit and die,’ but I didn’t think she’d take it literally.”

Duff McKagan, however, told reporters he doesn’t consider that a party has really even begun until he’s been exposed to at least one infectious disease.

    Duff must be geeked. “A” was the only hepatitis he needed to complete his collection.

    Why is Wolfgang Puck so obsessed with diseased LIVER? He thumbs his nose at people who protest his foie gras made from the diseased livers of tortured geese and then he feeds his guests food that may cause disease in their livers. Very unappetizing to hear a chef involved in such things! He should be called Wolfgang Yuck!

    As both a Hepatitis sufferer and a foie gras lover, I take exception to that comment.
