Kevin Smith had no idea he was on the verge of a widow-maker heart attack -- even as the ambulance was coming for him -- and instead thought he'd had some spoiled milk.

The director's recovered enough from the Sunday night heart attack to post video from his hospital room ... and revealed he had no clue what was happening to him. Kevin admits he was slow on the uptake, especially because his father died of a heart attack, and his mother is also battling heart issues.

He says he was never in much pain, but just had trouble catching his breath. In the middle of all this, he actually had a pretty funny interaction with paramedics. Even in crisis, Kevin says he wasn't down to show off his belly.

Once he got to the hospital ... Kevin says he realized this could be the end, and tried to come to peace with that as he thought about all his loved ones.

Really emotional stuff, and great to see him on the mend.

Omarosa 'Big Brother' Hospital Scare Was a Dizzy Doozy

2/11/2018 5:54 PM PST

Omarosa went to the hospital last week after a dizzying bowling competition on "Celebrity Big Brother" ... and the game seemed pretty intense on TV.

The former White House staffer was among the first guests to partake in the game -- aptly called Bowlerina -- in which players have to spin around to lower a gate guarding some pins ... and then try bowling them over from afar. 

Omarosa went up against Marissa Jaret Winokur, and kinda got her ass handed to her in the process. More importantly, though, she had to spin around twice to lower her gate ... and appeared to suffer an asthma attack as a result. 

As we reported ... Omarosa was sent to the hospital after the game, which left some house guests speculating she faked the attack to get some rest outside the house.

O was out of the house for nearly 19 hours ... we'll let you be the judge as to the seriousness of her attack.
