Beloved U.S. TV star Judge Judy has been hospitalized for exhaustion.
The former family court judge, real name Judith Sheindlin, was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Wednesday after experiencing intestinal discomfort.

She underwent an MRI scan and a number of tests, but the 68 year old, who will be discharged on Thursday, insists she just needs some rest.

She tells TMZ.com, “I was feeling funky this morning … funky enough that I knew someone should give a gander over what I got.

“I’m just exhausted, and my body was telling me it needed a day to chill. At my age, I know my body. My body is fine.”
