The Empress is all right

Posted By on Wed, Feb 13, 2008 at 2:33 AM

A pall was cast over Mardi Gras morning in the Treme when Antoinette K-Doe, widow of the legendary R&B character Ernie-K-Doe, was taken to Tulane University hospital early in the day complaining of chest pain. After surgical procedures to address heart and renal problems, the Empress of the Universe spent the weekend resting, and returned home yesterday to convalesce. Friends of K-Doe emphasize that the Mother-in-Law Lounge is not open until further notice, and that she is not receiving visitors. Supporters, fans, and well-wishers are encouraged to send correspondence to her at 1500 N. Claiborne Ave., New Orleans, LA 70116.
