Michelle Hurst, who plays the hardened Miss Claudette on the hit Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black, has emerged from a 16-day medically-induced coma following a car accident before the holidays. The news comes as the series launched a Kickstarter-like fundraising campaign on YouCaring.com to help Hurst’s family to pay for medical expenses and time off. Hurst will need the expenses and time off to recover from injuries close to her spine. She’s currently in the ICU at the UNC Chapel Hill Hospital in North Carolina.

It’s unclear when the campaign officially launched but in a matter of hours the site raised over $3,000 surpassing the $5,000 goal. Piper Kerman, author of the memoir on which the series is based, led the rallying cry on Twitter.

Several cast members, including Natasha Lyonne, retweeted and shared the link.

Celebrity Baby Scoop also attended and chatted with stars in attendance. Mom-of-three Candace Cameron Bure shared her thoughts on 2014, the awards and what’s keeping her busy right now.

What was the actress looking forward to the most for the big awards night?

“I want to see the ladies hosting! That’s what I am looking forward to the most,” she shared.

Does she have anything that she wants to change in Year 2014?

“I haven’t thought about any resolutions….I’m not a resolution kind of girl, to be honest. I just try to live my life in the way I want to every day of the year and be committed to it always.”

She went on to share what she’s been working on.

“My book just released this week,” Candace shared. “It’s called Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose.” It sounds like a must-read for all parents!

Amidst checking out the GUARDaHEART Foundation that raises awareness of heart disease prevention, Celebrity Baby Scoop caught up with Scandal star Joshua Malina. The father-of-two, who was attending with his son, opened up about his kids.

“I have two kids,” Joshua said. “My daughter, Isabel, is about to turn sixteen, and my boy here, Avi, is about to turn twelve. My son is the athlete of the family. He’s a scholar, skater, soccer player, and currently a football player. He hasn’t caught the acting bug!”

He also shared what he loves about being a dad.

“Favorite part about being a dad? That’s hard. Being a daddy is the thing that defines me more than anything. I love all of it. I would say, as I’m here with my boy, I love just being with my kids and seeing them grow and change, and be crazy.” [laughs]

And what are his upcoming projects?

“Upcoming projects? More Scandal,” Joshua shared. ”I go back to work on Monday, as we’re halfway through season three. I also just finished a film called The Young Kieslowski, where I’ve aged into the ‘dad’ role. In this one, I’m on the verge of grandparenthood. In addition, I am about to film a pilot for TVGN—TV Guide Network, which I’m producing. It’s called Celebrity Celebrity, and it’s kind of game show-ish.”

Agents of Shield star Ming-Na Wen also stopped by to chat while checking out Sir Ike Audio’s luxury Bluetooth headphones. She shares how she balances her busy schedule while raising two kids, daughter Michaela, 13, and son Cooper, 8.

“I am a mom of two kids. I am lucky to have an amazing husband and you just have to prioritize,” the actress shared. ”Even though I’ll work fifteen hour days, even on the weekends, you just have to find the balance as best as you can. We are not alone; every working mom has to deal with it. It doesn’t matter if you are working a 9-5 job or a 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. job like I do. You just do your best and it’s really nice when you have a great partner.”
