Miami Beach restaurateur Barton G. admits he was paralyzed in a fall


Famed Miami Beach restaurateur Barton G. admitted Wednesday he was paralyzed as a result of a freak fall three months ago — but, he says, he’s feeling well enough to return to work Nov. 29.

"I was paralyzed," he told Gossip Extra in an exclusive interview from a physical rehab facility near Atlanta. "It was a very upsetting, traumatic experience to be lying there.

"But the good news is I’m responding well to therapy and I’ll be home on time for Thanksgiving, then back to work the day after."
