Real life crisis.

Updated February 6, 2012: just stumbled upon this interview from 2011 that Sharon Wyatt did with "Inside Edition," updating her condition. When she met with the show, Wyatt revealed ear-to-ear stitches and a drainage tube protruding from her neck. As a result of developing osteonecrosis, a.k.a. dead bone disease, she had to have a titanium plate screwed into where her jaw used to be. Watch the video for more.

The NY Daily News is reporting that former Tiffany Hill Donely, Sharon Wyatt, has osteonecrosis, or bone death, in her jawline. The actress told the outlet she is undergoing surgery for her condition that she feels she got from the drug Fosamax, which was prescribed to treat osteoporosis in her back. In the article, Wyatt expressed her concerns that her condition will affect her speaking, which as she pointed out is, "death for an actor." She undergoes surgery on April 1.

Watch this classic clip of Sean (John Reilly) and Tiffany's wedding from 1988.
