Debbie Reynolds Hospitalized After Bad Reaction, Cancels Shows

Debbie Reynolds, the famous 80-year-old actress and singer, was hospitalized last weekend after a bad reaction to a medication and remained hospitalized Wednesday, but reports suggested she could be released later in the day.

TMZ reports that Debbie Reynolds has canceled all appearances for the next three months, but other sources, including Reuters, cited her manager Milt Suchin who said the star was taking a “wait-and-see approach” concerning upcoming events.

“Ms. Reynolds had an adverse reaction to some medicine and is on the mend and hopefully will be released today,” Suchin said. “It’s too soon to make a decision right now. But the prognosis is excellent.”

The type of medicine that caused the reaction, and the underlying reason she was on said medication, was not released. In fact, the exact nature of the negative reaction and its severity were also not released, but her condition does appear to have improved.

Reynolds starred in the hit film Singin’ in the Rain in 1952 and later on the small screen in The Debbie Reynolds Show in 1969 and 1970 and has been a recurring figure in television and film in the years since. Reynolds also did voice work as recurring character Nana Possible, grandmother of the show’s eponymous main character, on the hit Disney Channel cartoon Kim Possible from 2003 to 2007.

WonderWall reports that Debbie Reynolds, who still maintains a fairly active schedule of concerts and appearances, was scheduled to appear in the annual Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day on board a float promoting pet adoption.
