Celebrity Interviews


By Carol Crenna

I have conducted dozens of interviews with celebrities about their health and lifestyle. These Q & A profiles offer an intimate look into the personal struggles and health successes of celebrities. Learn how Olympic athletes get motivated to train when they’re feeling lazy, and work through their fear of injuries; learn how celebrities who have had cancer and other serious diseases not only survived, but thrived; learn how those in the public eye deal with weight gain, emotional issues, lack of sleep, and travel fatigue; learn why and how some have become vegetarian and raw food enthusiasts.

Celebrities have included:

  • Musician Bryan Adams, with a rare disclosure about his acne, and the food issues that relate to it;
  • Musician Randy Bachman, who admitted that his gastric bypass surgery was a desperate attempt to lose 100 pounds that he gained after his traumatic experience while in New York on 911;
  • Producer David Foster, who stated that his heart trouble may  be due to his  former heart (love-life) trouble before he met his current wife, that he is extremely claustrophobic, and that he lost weight by forgoing foods that make him “bloat”;
  • Artist Robert Bateman, who disclosed that he recently had cancer on his painting finger, and that his decision to move to a remote area was due to his fear of electromagnetic frequencies as much as a longing to be near nature;
  • Home design icon Debbie Travis, who said “I have cried myself to sleep; I have told my children I loathe them; and I have thrown things at my husband during a fight and even wrecked the paint on a new kitchen wall after a mug missed him. And that’s normal”;
  • Singer Olivia Newton John, who believes that her breast cancer was partly caused by the stress of “not weaning those from her life that drained her,” words of wisdom given to her by a naturopathic doctor.
