Good news for those following the health drama involving Ellen Turner, one of the founders of Knoxville’s Love Kitchen featured on “Secret Millionaire.” The 83-year-old Turner had been hospitalized after complaining of chest pains – and that was after she’d spent three weeks battling pneumonia. But the news is upbeat now. “Ellen Turner was released from UT Medical Center Friday evening, March 11,” said a statement on the Love Kitchen website. “Her sister, Helen Ashe, never left her side and will continue to keep a close eye on her twin at home. Helen would love to get back into The Love Kitchen this Wednesday, but will have to play it by ear. Ellen is not quite ready to start cooking again, but is hopeful that she’ll be back on her feet in just a few weeks. Helen and Ellen are so grateful for the outpouring of prayers, cards, letters and support.”
