It seems that the heart attack Tommy suffered was in fact, very serious, and if not for early intervention, it would likely have been fatal. He has by-pass surgery scheduled for later in the week. When reached by phone, Tommy first lamented that he would be missing a bunch of great news events in the coming week, but was quickly given a new assignment by his editor: a thorough investigation into convalescing and repairing from a major heart attack. Christopher did insist that Mediaite report on the live-tweeting of his heart attack, adding “dude, just make it funny.”
