Cloris Leachman is back home and resting after being hospitalized for a "bad cold," her rep confirmed on Monday.

“She went to seek some medical attention,” her rep said today in a statement. “She’s totally fine. She was at a family event on Saturday. She’s at home now.”

According to Entertainment Tonight,  the 82-year-old Oscar winner was headed home in the car with her son George, late last week, when she told him she was having trouble breathing and should go to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with pneumonia and was treated accordingly.


Leachman, who was the sixth contestant ousted from Dancing with the Stars, is also set to tape a surprise segment for the show later this week, her rep confirms.
