This comes after Radar reported her mother, Fran Wyles, took to Facebook yesterday to share an update about her daughter's current status saying, "Kate is stable. She still isn't lucid for more than a moment at a time. We are optimistic that she will recover (tho it won't be quick)."

Last weekend, the tragic event occurred when police received a report of a suspected overdose just after midnight on Friday at a residence in the Venice neighborhood in Los Angeles. Upon responding to the call, police had found 4 people who appeared to be unresponsive, including Kate and fellow comedian friend Fuquan.
