Rachel's wife has COVID, was in grave danger, according to Rachel

Just watched Rachel give an impassioned speech to others to "move heaven and earth to avoid getting Covid". "It may not be you who gets it; it may be the person you love most in the world". And "if you get sick, there's no hospital that can take you"

Apparently there was a point that they thought Rachel's SO (Susan) wouldn't survive. Sounds like she's now recovering, but they've been separated during Rachel's absence from her show while in quarantine. It's heartbreaking how much this has clearly affected her.

Powerful message.

That's why I assume they're married.

to get married.

I remember her talking about same sex marriage on her program one time as a legal issue, and I'm surprised not to find confirmation of a ceremony.

Maybe they didn't tie the knot, and they're just partners.

That may not be the right quote but they both appear to be very special people.

Rachel is a national treasure. Didn't know anything about her personal life. Best wishes to them both.
