  1. Pauley, you’re as beautiful as ever. Stay safe, be strong and keep your love going. I love you.

  2. I really don’t like it when the tabloids say things like deadly stroke. It wasn’t a deadly stroke because she’s still alive. I’m glad that she’s alive. However, it was a nearly deadly stroke. Please post things correctly

    1. “Fatal stroke” means it killed her. “Deadly stroke” means it nearly killed her or could have killed her. Deadly is defined as something that could kill. If you are going to correct me, look up the definition of the word and make sure you are right in suggesting the correction first 🙂

  3. Hey Pauley, glad your doing well, I loved the video of you singing what was supposed to be the theme song for NCIS, I was so sad when you left, I actually cried during that whole episode, I love the character Casey but she isn’t Abbie! I had a stroke a month ago luckily it was a small one and I am doing good. I have also been thru a few of the things that happened to you

    Love and Miss you!!
