Candice BergenHere's a story that got lost amidst all of the other new fall season hoopla. . .

Candice Bergen, presently a cast member on the ABC drama Boston Legal, suffered an apparent stroke last week. After falling ill, the 60-year-old actress was promptly treated and released from the hospital, and was expected to make a full recovery. According to news reports, nurses say Bergen was in good spirits during her short stay.

Known for her Emmy award winning work on CBS's Murphy Brown, Bergen was hired to play Shirley Schmidt on Boston Legal, where she trades barbs with co-stars James Spader and William Shatner. Whether or not the stroke will have any implications for Bergen's role on the show is unknown at this time.

Whatever caused the trip to the hospital, I hope she is okay--somebody needs to keep Spader and Shatner on their toes. And I cannot believe she is 60 years old.

According to Nosy Snoop:

Movie star Candice Bergen has hit back at reports she suffered a stroke, insisting her hospitalisation was the result of high blood pressure.

Reports yesterday (28Sep06) suggested the Soldier Blue star, 60, had been admitted to hospital after suffering heart problems.

But Bergen's publicist, Heidi Schaeffer, claims the legendary actress was only there for tests.

Schaeffer says, "She was hospitalised for a few days" for "observation," and her client is now "fine". . . . . .
