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 Beyoncé 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 Beyoncé 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.
