On Friday, the Boston Herald reported that Massachusetts senator Ted Kennedy's health has taken a turn for the worse and that his wife, Vicki Kennedy, will be taking over for him in the U.S. Senate.
'Friends' of the family supposedly confirmed that the senior senator's brain cancer has worsened and that he is resting at an undisclosed location in Florida.
However, a Kennedy family spokesman has disputed these claims and said Sen. Kennedy is NOT on his death bed.
The mouthpiece added that the report that Vicki Kennedy is in line to succeed her husband couldn't be farther from the truth.
We hope the Kennedy spokesperson is right and that Sen. Kennedy is recovering okay!
