Judge Judy on hospitalization: “I just needed a day to chill!”

Yesterday morning in Los Angeles, TV’s Judge Judy Sheindlin was rushed to the hospital.

However, Judge Judy’s no-nonsense approach extends to herself and she brushed off the incident when describing it to TMZ’s Harvey Levin. Judy said:

“I’m just exhausted, and my body was telling me it needed a day to chill.”

She added:

“I was feeling funky this morning … funky enough that I knew someone should give a gander over what I got… I’m really fine. I wanted to go back to work this afternoon,” adding, “I’m exhausted. I’m just tired. A lot of things just zoned together, including the bad news of the world.”

Her Honor also said, “At my age, I know my body. My body is fine.”

Judy, you’d better not be spitting on our cupcakes and saying it’s icing. Sheindlin’s rep commented on the specific reasons she was treated:

“The judge was feeling nauseous and had some intestinal discomfort and decided to go to the hospital to get it checked out.”

Judge Judy also said she was disappointed to have missed her meeting to plan Judge Judy slot machines, but plans to reschedule it. She is expected to be released today.
