NASHVILLE, Tenn. – She's known as the "Biscuit Lady" and is the face of Nashville's iconic Loveless Cafe.
Over the weekend, Carol Fay Ellison was taken to a local hospital in serious condition.
Her family and co-workers are asking for prayers.
"Carol Fay is a super person, everyone loves her," said Tom Morales, owner of the Loveless Cafe. "She's the only person I know who [has] bossed Martha Stewart around. When you think about it, all the late night programs she's been on, that's a tribute to her spirit and who she is as a person."
No word on what Ellison is being treated for, but Morales said she has a very serious illness that is life-threatening.
