Home Celebrity Cindy Adams: Where in the World Is The Famed Gossip?

Only in New York, kids: a famous gossip columnist disappears and no one is asking questions.

Cindy Adams last filed a column for the New York Post on May 20th. A few days later, Page Six said she was in the hospital for anemia.

Well, it’s June 10th, and there’s no sign of Cindy. Her assistant, in fact, says she’s still in the hospital. “She was very run down” is the explanation.

The assistant also claims that no one knows which hospital Adams is in. Hello? If a publicist told Cindy that about a star, Adams would have the whole town turned upside down. We’re not going to do that, although we did check a few places to be sure. She’s not at Lenox Hill.

Cindy, if you’re reading this, we miss you! Tell us where you are, we’ll send flowers! And candy!

One thing: Cindy’s planned one woman show for Broadway is sure to be delayed. Since it’s written, and sure to be funny, I think her producers should hire a gifted comic actress and put it on anyway. Did I hear anyone say Bette Midler?

Is there a mystery here, aside from Cindy’s age? (I know it, but I’m not saying.) There’s one: I didn’t realize that many years ago Cindy and her late husband, the great comic Joey Adams, embraced Christian Science. They were both born Jewish. Also, Cindy took amazing care of both her mother and Joey in their later years. So I doubt Cindy Adams is eschewing proper doctors’ care. Even Mary Baker Eddy must have liked a cough drop.

So the search teams are on their way. The Tony Awards are on Sunday and it’s hard to imagine Cindy, in a brightly colored designer jacket with her hair piled high, not standing in the Number 1 position on the red carpet, asking questions, taking notes, getting a bunch of quotes to sprinkle through the next several columns. Cindy, if you don’t get back here in a hurry, I’m going to start telling your real story! And it’s a doozy.

  4. Every morning when the NY POST is delivered to my apartment door, I look for the return of Cindy Adams. She is so much an integral part of the fabric of where I was born and grew up. I know – perhaps she is keeping Barbara Walters company and the grand ladies are cooking up some Hot Topics to dish about – Barbara will write a guest spot in the NY POST and Cindy will guest host on THE VIEW. Great idea, come to think of it :)

  5. Please delete/correct my previous post and substitute this one.

    If the news about Cindy Adams were encouraging, the New York Post would not be silent. And, if it were better, Cindy would not be silent.

    At 81, Cindy had not shown any signs of slowing down until recently. I hope she’ll get back to work and tell her readers why the woman who claims to be the mother of Eddy Arnold’s lovechild is not writing the book she says she was scared to write while Eddy was still alive.

    The paternity suit is under seal so it will take Cindy to get to the bottom of it, even though the lovechild revelation did not originate with Cindy. As I have written, it dates back several decades to one of the “Gossip, Gossip, Gossip” segments of the syndicated Joan River Show.

  6. I agree with you all. I just cannot understand why they will not just say she is sice,she is on vacation or whatever. We are not asking for personal info just general info would make us all feel a litle better.
    I hope she is doing okay and I wish the best for her.

  7. As far as I’m concerned, Miss Cindy is the only reason to read the Post. Something is really amiss and the secrecy is alarming. We need to know what is happening with Miss Cindy…not the details just a general and truthful phrase or two. Do we readers have to threaten to write her column to get an update or what??

    Really really really missing you and praying for you too!

  8. EVERY DAY I OPEN THE POST TO SEE IF CINDY HAS RETURNED. AS FAR AS I WAS CONCERNED I THOUGHT HER INDESTRUCTIBLE. WHAT IS THE BIG SECRET.

  10. I’ll put my two cents in as well. I had an Post email for her and it was returned “undeliverable”. I truly miss my New York “Mama” every morning in the Post. Please keep trying Roger.

  11. I miss Cindy so much ! I have written to the Post and have posted on other websites looking for Miss Adams. Not 1 reply. This sure is a mystery.

  12. I am really concerned about this lady. I tried to leave a comment at NY Post, but there seems to be a glitch in their comment system. They need to let us know what is going on with Cindy. What about poor Jazzy and Juicy! I hope Cindy reads your column because she needs to know that we miss her and are worried about her.

  13. I’m so glad you are on this! I read Cindy daily and thought she might be on an endless vacation — although she usually lets readers know when she’s going to be out. I miss her! Come back soon, Cindy!

  14. So glad you’re on this…! I’ve been checking for Cindy’s column every day, and totally miss her. Get some answers, Roger!

What do you think?
