Lucci told the host that she recently had a scary incident: “I was having kind of a shortness of breath,” she relayed. She added that she felt ache around her ribcage area and her back, which reminded her of similar symptoms she first had years ago. She said, “This is crazy. These are the same kind of symptoms that I had three years ago but they can’t be. But when I lay down, I started to feel a sharp coming-and-going pain in my jaw.” The symptoms Lucci had were like those she experienced during her first heart health issue.

Lucci wisely went to see her doctor who performed several tests. Based on the results, her doctor told her that she had an 80% blockage! She then underwent cardiac catheterization in which a stent was put in place. According to her doctor, Lucci did not have a heart attack and she soon was in stable condition.
It goes without saying that Lucci is a strong advocate for women paying attention to adverse symptoms and acting upon them. She added that because she sought help promptly, a second cardiac emergency was averted.

Earlier this month Lucci shared information on the proposed AMC spinoff, Pine Valley. She told People magazine that the project has been held back by, what else, the coronavirus pandemic. According to Lucci, “There has been movement. I wish it was a quicker movement, but yes, everything in terms of being in the right hands, as far as I know, would be in place.”
Her AMC co-stars Kelly Ripa (Hayley Vaughn) and Mark Consuelos (Mateo Santos) announced the project initially, stating that they were producing the series along with Andrew Stearn.
