Kristin Chenoweth has been released from hospital after being injured on the set of The Good Wife.
The 43-year-old actress - who plays a political reporter in the fourth season of the CBS drama - is now recovering at home after being treated at Bellevue Hospital after being hit by a piece of lighting equipment that the wind had blown out of place while shooting a scene. Kristin received treatment at the scene yesterday before being rushed to hospital after she was struck by the lighting silk on Kent Avenue in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, and she was thought to have hit her head on the ground when she fell.
"Kristin has been released from the hospital and is home recovering. She thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes," her representative said in a statement.
Following the incident, Will and Grace actor Sean Hayes - who starred opposite the blonde beauty in Broadway production Promises, Promises in 2010 - took to his Twitter account to wish the 43-year-old star a speedy recovery: "Sending out my love and wishes for a speedy recovery to my former leading lady, @KChenoweth."
Kristin Chenoweth was rushed to hospital on Wednesday after being injured on the set of The Good Wife.
The 43-year-old actress - who has joined season four of the CBS drama, playing a political reporter - was hit by a piece of the lighting equipment while shooting a scene on Kent Avenue in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn and taken to Bellevue Hospital for treatment.
"This afternoon, while filming a scene for The Good Wife in Brooklyn, a gust of wind blew a lighting silk out of place striking actress Kristin Chenoweth. She received treatment on the scene by the show's medic until a New York Fire Department emergency medical team arrived and transported her to the hospital. All of us at the studio and the show are thinking about Kristin and wishing her a quick recovery," a statement from CBS read.
It is believed the injuries are minor although Kristin is thought to have hit her head on the ground when she fell. According to TV Line, the actress was forced to postpone a magazine photo shoot she had booked for today.
Sharon Osbourne broke down in tears on The Talk yesterday morning. The showbiz matriarch couldn't keep her emotions in check when she spoke to thank fans for their messages of support following the news that her 26-year-old son Jack has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
"He's great - he's doing really, really good and I want to thank everyone for all their texts and goodwill and love they send to us. Thank you to everyone for all their good wishes. It's been amazing - but for Jack because I really believe that vibes of prayer help. And what I'm doing right now is not helping because I'm just feeling sorry for myself, and that is no good. So we just have to think positively and get on with this show that we love," she said in between sobs.
