HEIDI KLUM: Leaves *AGT* After Falling Ill

Let the coronavirus speculation begin!

On the same day Howie Mandel showed up to the America’s Got Talent set in a hazmat suit, fellow judge Heidi Klum had to leave after falling ill. The audience was told she had a case of suspected food poisoning, but TMZ says that wasn’t true — “she just felt like crap.”

The Tuesday taping in Pasadena featured a full audience  — despite Jeopardy!Wheel of Fortune and Dr Phil taping in empty studios. And now talk shows in New York City, including Good Morning AmericaThe View and Live With Kelly and Ryan say they will also tape without studio audiences because of the coronavirus.

Hot Takes:

  • Not everyone who gets sick has coronavirus. But for now everyone will think you have it.
  • You can’t cough now without people running away.
  • Sooner or later a celeb will get it.
  • Howie’s a well-known germaphobe, so he probably wasn’t kidding about the hazmat suit.
