JOAN COLLINS: I’M TOO TOUGH TO GET OLD!

Iron Lady, 89, parties hours after leaving hospital ER

-

JUST hours after Dynasty diva Joan Collins was airlifted to a Monaco medical center in hellish agony caused by a pinched nerve in her leg, the 89-year-old TV vamp was on her yacht partying like there’s no tomorrow!

And Joan may be right — worried friends fear her tomorrows are severely limited, no matter how tough she is!

“She’s only ten months off 90 but acts like a thirtysome­thing and it’s starting to catch up with her,” spills an insider. “Joan’s got the heart of a lioness, but all the globetrott­ing and eating out night after night in fancy restaurant­s is too much.

“Trouble is, no one thinks Joan is taking this recent health scare seriously. She’s very lucky it was just a nerve and not a stroke.”

While Joan pooh-poohs the health crisis that landed her in Monaco’s Princess Grace Hospital, her loved ones, including fifth hubby Percy Gibson, 57, are begging her to wake up and slow down, sources tattle.

“Percy has been at her beck and call and is a nervous wreck, begging her to take it easy and not move around so much,” blabs the spy.

“But she’s assured him she’s fine and is going to live another 20 years, and they should enjoy their summer vacation in the south of France like this didn’t happen.”

Although her novelist sister, Jackie Collins, died from cancer at age 77 in 2015, Joan acts like she’s invincible.

“There’s a perception about getting older that’s outdated,” Joan insists. “People are living longer and healthier. I’m lucky in that I’m very healthy and have all my faculties, a great family and great friends.”

Adds the insider: “Joan plans on slipping into her signature stiletto heels as soon as she possibly can.”
