One of our all-time favorite wowlebrities, superstar astrologer Walter Mercado (who, in 2010 changed his name to Shanti Ananda, or “peace happiness” in Sanskrit) has been transferred from a Puerto Rican hospital to one in Ohio after having chest pains and bronchitis, reportedly brought on by stress related to legal matters. “Although he had gotten better from the pneumonia, Shanti Ananda’s blood pressure had been fluctuating during his hospitalization,” a spokesperson from Mercado’s public relations team told El Nuevo Herald. “They have taken him more as a precaution than as a necessity,” the spokesperson added. “Doctors feel more comfortable with him in the Cleveland hospital, which specializes in heart disease.” Mercado’s niece, Ivonne Benet Mercado, told the publication that her uncle is quickly recovering. “His positivity and good mood help him,” she said, adding that the astrologer has not lost his sense of humor and has managed to stay made up even while being in bed in the hospital. We would expect nothing less. (via The Miami Herald)
