Tony Curtis Is In “Stable” Condition

85-year-old actor Tony Curtis – who was hospitalised earlier this week after a suspected asthma attack while at an event to unveil his latest artwork in Nevada – is expected to be allowed home to convalesce at the beginning of next week.

The star’s manager Michael Einfeld told “Tony is in the hospital and is going home after the weekend.”   The ‘Spartacus’ actor – who has been married five times and had an affair with tragic actress Marilyn Monroe – suffers from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and was admitted to a local hospital for tests after having breathing difficulties.

A friend of the screen legend says his loved ones are delighted with his progress.   The pal said: “Tony was looking good on Tuesday (13.07.10). He had regained some of his colour and the family was hopeful of a full recovery.”   It has been revealed that Tony’s daughter Jamie Lee Curtis has not visited her father in hospital.   Tony – who now uses a wheelchair and can only walk short distances – nearly died when he contracted pneumonia in December 2006 and was in a coma for several days.
