Demi Moore - Demi Moore Is 'Doing Great'

Demi Moore is "doing great".

The actress was rushed to Sherman Oaks Hospital on Monday evening (23.01.12), after suffering a seizure at a birthday party she was hosting at her home and although she was reportedly treated for anorexia and substance abuse, her director pal Patty Jenkins says she is recovering.

Patty told E! Online: "I just saw her and she's doing great. I think she's doing much better than it's made out to be.

"Demi is awesome and so strong. I also hate when people make it a bigger drama than what is going on. She's great."

Despite Patty's claims that reports of Demi's condition have been exaggerated, a frantic 911 call made by her panicked friends revealed the actress had "smoked something" and was suffering from "convulsions" on the night she was taken to hospital.

The star's friend can be heard on the tape of the call saying: "We need an ambulance here as soon as possible. Why is an ambulance not on its way right now? She smoked something. It's not marijuana, but it's similar to, it's similar to incense, and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort."

The dispatcher then asked the terrified pal if Demi, 49, was conscious and breathing.

The friend replied: "Yes, well semi-conscious, barely ... And she's convulsing. She smoked something, but the reaction was accidental. It's accidental."

Another friend, a woman, then takes the phone and reveals Demi had taken another substance before the smoking incident.

The operator asks: "Is she breathing normally?"

To which the second person responds: "No, um, not so normal, but more sort of shaking, convulsing. But burning up ... She's been having some issues lately with some other stuff, so I don't know what she's been taking."

The name of the first substance was wiped from the recording that was released on Friday (27.01.12) because of federal patient privacy regulations.
