Kate Quigley responds to tweets saying she is ‘healing physically and mentally’

Comedian Kate Quigley told her fans early Thursday that she is still “healing physically & mentally” from her near-deadly drug overdose — and left in tears at all the messages of love and support.

“Hi love bugs. – Ive stayed off my phone a couple days & prolly will for a while,” the 39-year-old stand-up said in an early hours tweet, her first since overdosing on cocaine laced with fentanyl at an L.A. house party last Friday.

“I’m still healing physically & mentally,” she wrote. 

“But reading all the positive messages from u guys is makin me cry tnight. Thank u. So grateful for the support & love. U have no idea how much it’s helping,” she said.

The comedian’s message was shared with a photo of a quote seemingly addressing her future plans after her overdose from a batch of fentanyl-laced cocaine being blamed for three deaths, including comedy writer Fuquan Johnson.

 “It’s okay that you don’t know how to move on. Start with something easier … like not going back,” the shared quote by an unknown author said.

Quigley’s mother, Fran Wyles, had earlier told fans that her daughter “isn’t lucid for more than a moment at a time.”

But The funnywoman, who has appeared on “The Office” and “Star Trek: Hidden Frontier,” on Wednesday started tweeting replies to friends sending her messages of support.

“Working hard to get back to life!!!!” she replied to a message from producer Fred Wreck, also telling Jamie Kennedy, “Im on the mend.”

When one podcaster tweeted that it would be open-season to make jokes if the comedian died, Quigley replied, “Yes, but you’re out of luck. I’m not dying.”

The bad batch of coke was reportedly to blame for the deaths of fellow comedians Fuquan Johnson, a writer for “Comedy Parlour Live,” along with Ricky Angeli and Natalie Williamson at a party in the Venice section of Los Angeles over the weekend. 

Police are investigating whether fentanyl may have played a role in the death of Michael K. Williams, the beloved actor from “The Wire,” who was found dead from an apparent drug overdose Monday in New York City. The Post also revealed this week that it was to blame for the April 2020 death of 16-year-old “The Flash” star Logan Williams.

The synthetic opioid is up to 100 times more potent than heroin and is linked to the deaths of stars including Prince, Mac Miller and Tom Petty.
