    Default Steve Cojocaru gets a kidney from his mother

    LOS ANGELES - Steven Cojocaru received a second kidney transplant _ this one donated by his mother _ after the first one in January had to be removed due to infection.

    Cojocaru, a correspondent for the syndicated TV shows "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider," had the transplant Tuesday and was resting comfortably, according to a joint statement released by the television shows.

    "I'm immensely grateful for the precious gift my mother has given me," said the 40-something fashion commentator. "Thank you to all for your prayers and good wishes _ it gave me the strength to persevere and warmed my heart."

    Cojocaru suffers from polycystic kidney disease, a hereditary disorder that causes the growth of cysts on the kidney. He received a kidney from a friend in January, but it was removed in June after it became infected with a virus that can afflict transplant recipients and lead to eventual loss of the organ.

    "Both operations went smoothly and the doctors are very pleased with their progress," said Janet Annino, co-executive producer of "Entertainment Tonight" and "The Insider." "We are thankful they're both doing well and we look forward to seeing Cojo back on the red carpet soon."

    Cojocaru also is the author of "Red Carpet Diaries: Confessions of a Glamour Boy."

    I was feeling sorry for his friend, now she only has one kidney and he didn't get any benefit from her donation. If her own remaining kidney goes bad she is screwed
