Danny Bonaduce has been honest about his problems with alcohol and other things. Now, after a serious health scare, he is telling more of his story.
The star of “The Partridge Family” talked to “Good Morning America” about his battle with a mysterious illness that started in April when his wife Amy noticed something was wrong with his speech and quickly called for help.
“I couldn’t walk at all. I couldn’t balance. I couldn’t do anything like that,” Bonaduce said. “She looked really nervous. And she said, ‘You’re not saying words, you’re not speaking English,’ which of course is preposterous to me.”
He went on to say, “We call an ambulance and it took me to the hospital where I remained for the first five days and remember very little of it.”
Because he was sick, the star had to take a break from his radio show in Seattle. In a post on social media, he told his fans, “I’m still working towards receiving a diagnosis. What I do know is, I need some time to focus on my health.”

Bonaduce said that even after ruling out a stroke and keeping him in the hospital for tests, the doctors never found a clear reason.
“I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t keep my balance. I slurred really badly,” he said. “I was afraid of everything. I was afraid of my stairs for God’s sake — I was hoping for a diagnosis but did not get one.”
This is not the first time the star has been sick. In the reality show “Breaking Bonaduce,” which the star made, he and his ex-wife talked about his drug use.
“I’ve lived kind of a hard and fast life. And that’s how I think the people think of me: ‘Danny Bonaduce, nothing good can ever come of him,'” he said.

Bonaduce has been clean for two months and has finally gone back to work. He hopes to persuade his fans to take better care of their own health.
“There was nothing that said this was gonna happen. Take time to consider your health and what you’re doing. Pay attention,” he said. Bonaduce also said that he is thankful for all the love he has gotten.
