The star revealed on Loose Women on Wednesday that she had been rushed to her parents’ home this week to care for her ailing father after he “ fell a bit. ”
Denise told Entertainment Daily of his recovery on Thursday, “I think they are going to remove his gallbladder, but we’re just trying to keep his strength until then, but it’s hard because he doesn’t have an appetite.”
Despite not being well and unable to eat, Denise said he was not in pain.
“The weird thing is, he doesn’t have the pain. It’s a weird thing going on, but the fact is, he can’t eat anything. Dad is 84 and that’s why I don’t want him to lose any more weight, ”the mother of two added.
The media personality also spoke fondly of her dad’s’ party animal ‘nature, continuing,’ It’s a real shame, everyone who knows my dad knows he’s a party animal – he’s outsmarting me at every stage, although that is not difficult now, for it is clear I am sober. ‘
