Famed TV arbiter Judge Judy Sheindlin was taken to the hospital by ambulance on Wednesday but says she's fine, and just needed a day to take care of herself... and to see what she's got a "case" of.
Judge Judy called TMZ's Harvey Levin from her hospital bed, saying, "I'm just exhausted, and my body was telling me it needed a day to chill. I was feeling funky this morning... funky enough that I knew someone should give a gander over what I got."
The 68-year-old judge is resting comfortably at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in L.A., where she just had an MRI. Doctors are doing a few more tests, and the TV Solomon says she'll be out tomorrow.
Her Honor continued, "I'm really fine. I wanted to go back to work this afternoon," adding, "I'm exhausted. A lot of things just zoned together, including the bad news of the world."
