A statement issued by CBS Television Studios revealed that the star was initially treated on the scene and was later taken to the hospital after being hit by a piece of lighting equipment. "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 rep for Chenoweth told ET on Thursday that the star had been released from the hospital and is at home recovering. "She thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes," the rep added.
The 43-year-old singer/actress joined The Good Wife cast recently, taking on the recurring role of a "top-of-her-game political reporter who wants to know more about the Florrick campaign and marriage" for the series' fourth season.
