Amor Vittone collapses on flight to CT

2012-03-20 16:40
Cape Town - Joost van der Westhuizen's estranged wife, Amor Vittone, collapsed on a flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town on Tuesday.

Nathan Adams of Eyewitness News told Channel24: "Amor collapsed on board a flight from Johannesburg to Cape Town. Her mother said she was struggling to breathe."

The flight landed in Cape Town earlier on Tuesday.

Vittone's mother reportedly told Eyewitness News that she would be spending the night in a hospital in Cape Town.

"Her mother didn't sound too panicked. She just said she [Amor's mother] has the kids with her," said Adams.

It is thought that Vittone possibly suffered a panic attack.

    Tedious waste of news space.

      Jason - 2012-03-20 17:25

      Warmonger - 2012-03-22 13:53

      And if it's Amor then all the more ZERO's....

  • Cecil - 2012-03-20 17:04

    WOW - some of these comments are a poor reflection of the authors themselves.

      Fred - 2012-03-20 18:28

      Yes I agree totally.

      Theresa - 2012-03-23 14:15

      Couldn't agree more Cecil.

  • MandyDbn - 2012-03-20 17:09

    Does she seriously think we give a rats arse!

  • Andrew Worrall - 2012-03-20 17:24

    And the Oscar goes to...the Blue bulls rugby team for best supporting actress and costume design. Morne looked dashing in pink and Barry Ronge scooped him up and took him home

      Carol - 2012-03-22 12:46

      This is hilarious.

  • Piet - 2012-03-20 17:31

      raegan.mcreed - 2012-03-22 09:57

  • Sulette Behnke - 2012-03-20 17:32

    Bad news hits : Amore Vittone collapses on flight , unfortunately she's ok

      margaret.mead1 - 2012-03-22 09:16

      You are disgusting. I can't believe it. Have you ever experienced a panic attack? It is horrible. No matter who you are, and how popular and high celebrity you are, it is a horrible experience, caused by very high STRESS. Do you know the word Stress? If you don't you are one lucky woman.

      Smoke.ZN - 2012-03-22 11:28

      Sulette.... honestly, what does she have to panic about? "OMG ... I might break a nail!!!"

      Theresa - 2012-03-22 14:52

      Smoke.ZN- I suggest you stop commenting about issues you have no knowledge of. You have no idea what's going on in her private life. I'm not an Amor fan by the way.

      Johnny - 2012-03-23 11:23

      My panic attacks does not make headlines to irritate everybody !

      Theresa - 2012-03-23 14:17

      No, but it seems that your comments are.

  • Grovè - 2012-03-20 17:38

    Shame really????!!!!!!!!!

  • rudie.stoltz - 2012-03-20 17:52

    Drama QUEEN. Get A life and F... back to Italy. Yes that part of the world which face financial ruin.

  • Shirley - 2012-03-20 18:07

    Is there no end to her attention seeking antics?

  • sean.looney - 2012-03-20 18:41

    i used to have panic attacks all the time... don't remember ever having to spend a night in hospital??

  • Nicky - 2012-03-20 19:26

    Or perhaps she panicked that she might have to eat some food!!!

  • charmaine.rowlands - 2012-03-20 23:47

    sorry, who?

  • Se-a Spencer Ikeremm - 2012-03-21 00:25

    I'm sorry but I couldn't help but laugh when I saw this article heading, even as I'm writing this I didn't read the story. The drama of these two!

  • TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-03-21 01:41

    It's very simple. If she has done you no direct harm, which I doubt - ignore the article. Compounded bad "chi" can kill people. Let's not go there. We will never know the truth - as in all personal relationships. Stop villifying Amore because you read the same signs as judged by your own miseries. Give the woman a break. She probably had a panic attack after all the hateful glares and some snide comments. My five cents. (pretty obsolete). SA's are unkind and vengeful these days.

      kabir.ramdew - 2012-03-21 23:05

      The red blooded rugby lovers backing their favourite son, you would swear Amore was caught on camera in cocaine laced adultery...She is a celeb so everything she does will get attention, the thing i cant get my around is why S.A cant see that they love to hate her. Everyone jus denies that they care when they obviously do, it hits a spot in them all.....yes tackiness attracts tackiness, i guess many ppl can relate to cheap tricks, thats why they so vehemently speak out against, they judging from their own projected misery with NO facts really.....poor sods

      Theresa - 2012-03-22 14:54

      Tania, thank you. Seems that we have too many a-holes lurking around on the internet.

  • Neil - 2012-03-21 04:51

    Amore who? Seriously..who cares? Probably farted the whole plane into a panic....

      Louise - 2012-03-22 10:27

      Well done! You hit the nail on the head. I feel sorry for the fellow passengers! That's most probably why she couldn't find a paper bag - fellow passengers used it to block of the pungent aroma around her!

  • braamc - 2012-03-21 06:11

    Was it the beef or the chicken?

  • lisa.evansdominick - 2012-03-21 06:49

    For goodness sake, the most attention seeking individual... any for a bit of media attention. I can alo fake a panic attack...

  • Silvana - 2012-03-21 07:41

    LOL All the comments here make me chuckle. What if it had been Joost who collapsed on the flight? Would he also be looking for attention? You are all so partisan. They're both adulterers. Leave them to sort out the mess that THEY created. The only victims are the kids, and all you're venomous comments only fuel the pain that these kids have to go through. How would you like to read about people calling your mother a tramp, a b1tch. It's bad enough that there are pics of their father in his broken underpants, snorting coke with a "hooker".

      Brian - 2012-03-21 18:28

      They are both not newsworthy, keep the children out of their bagabliotos and duramgigliato confesiolarios

      jtkuther - 2012-03-22 00:01

      Hookers are good, they perform a vital service for the likes of Joost. If you aint getting it at home you will seek it elsewhere . . .AND Yes I am being facetious here. . .

      Lourens - 2012-03-23 02:35

      Is Joost still dying? Saw him with Shabir at Humewood the other day......

  • Monica - 2012-03-21 08:29

    Gotta say it is so funny that the media always use this very unflattering photo

      jtkuther - 2012-03-22 00:02

      Hey Monica, thats the best of the lot . . .

  • Irene - 2012-03-21 09:07

    Probably a publicity stunt if her mother did not sound too panicked. Do they get paid for these stories?

  • Nicole - 2012-03-21 09:44

    stay down -

  • Arthur - 2012-03-21 09:54

    Amor the drama queen...anything and anyplace to get attention and boring

  • Flavi - 2012-03-21 09:57

    Self inflicted.

  • Se-Anne - 2012-03-21 10:46

    One thing though, she is a good actress... She gets nowhere with slandering his name and that of his dr's... So she chooses to be dramatic to gain more attention. Wow. At least she didn't throw herself into a bush ... like someone I know...

  • yvonnethiebaut - 2012-03-21 11:37

  • Stuart - 2012-03-21 14:38

  • Robert E Meise Esq - 2012-03-21 14:38

    Amor, when will you grow up, another stunt for attention?

  • desmond.joshua2 - 2012-03-22 08:49

    another public stunt

  • Susan - 2012-03-22 08:49

    I said so last week, she'll find a way to be in the news this week.

  • margaret.mead1 - 2012-03-22 09:13

    I am a wife and a mother. I know the stresses of life, and I sympathise with Amor. I've also had more than one panic attack, and believe me, it is not funny at all. It is terrifying, although thankfully you usually recover quickly. Amor may not be perfect, but her life is even more stressed because she lives in the limelight, and is busy divorcing one of South Africa's favourite sons, who also has a life threatening disease. This is HUGE pressure on anybody. My sympathies to Amor and her family. I can't believe the ugly comments on this site. I don't take sides, but I'm shocked at the no care attitude of people who take the time to make comments with such vitriolic words. Where is your compassion? Have you ever had your heart racing and your breathing impaired? Sies man.

      David - 2012-03-22 10:45

      @margaret.mead1. I would hate to burst your bubble but at the end of the day she is getting what she deserves. They say karme is a b^tch and it is now coming back to haunt her. Remember she did it to his first wife and now it has been done to her. You say you are a mother and a wife, I bet my last R1000-00 that you dont carry on like this in public (falling down, passing out) and trying to hug the spotlight. I think you will agree with me that the children should come first and leave your dirty laundery at home and stop selling stories for money, as her career is now in the toilet.

      Theresa - 2012-03-23 10:59

      David- who are you to judge on what she 'deserves'?

  • brionyl.french - 2012-03-22 09:26

    maybe she should eat...... and is this the only picture News 24 has of this woman

      Susan - 2012-03-22 12:54

      I agree, she is hell ugly upclose.

  • Lowis - 2012-03-22 09:45

    WHO CARES! I cannot fathom how this can be the most read article on News24 this morning - the woman is as common as they come.
