Howie Mandel Hospitalized; Mariska Hargitay Suffers Collapsed Lung

It's been a rough week for the health of some of television's best known stars.

Comedian and host of the hit game show "Deal or No Deal" Howie Mandel, 53, has been hospitalized in Canada with an irregular heartbeat, his publicist said Tuesday.

And according to actress Mariska Hargitay's rep, the "Law and Order: SVU" star has been sidelined with a partially collapsed lung!

But fear not, both stars seem to be doing just fine, despite their compromised positions.

"Howie is in the hospital being monitored for an irregular heartbeat but doctors expect him to be released and back to work tomorrow," Kay said in a statement.

"He did not have a heart attack," he added, correcting several published reports.

And as for Ms. Hargitay?

Despite missing her Globes appearance (she was nominated for best actress in a television drama) it looks like the star will not be missing any work. According to her rep, she will "appear in all episodes for the rest of the season of 'Law and Order.'"
