Judge Judy Hospitalized with Intestinal Discomfort

Jesse Grant/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Judge Judy stepped down from the bench and into an ambulance Wednesday morning.

According to, Judge Judy Sheindlin was brought from the set of her TV show to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles with what her rep described as "intestinal discomfort." The website said the 68-year-old's condition stemmed from oral surgery she underwent the previous day.

Sheindlin tells she's doing fine now, saying, "I'm just exhausted, and my body was telling me it needed a day to chill."

She says she expects to return home Thursday.
