Judge Judy was rushed to the hospital this morning after becoming incoherent while taping in Los Angeles, Radar Online reports. It's apparently related to oral surgery she had yesterday. After speaking a few sentences unrelated to the case at hand, she told the audience she had “to stop” because she wasn’t feeling well. “She was just sitting on the stand during her show taping and she started saying things that didn't make any sense,” says an insider. A rep for Judy Sheindlin confirmed the hospitalization.

“The judge was feeling nauseous and had some intestinal discomfort and decided to go to the hospital to get it checked out,” he said. “They are keeping her overnight for tests." Judge Judy reportedly had oral surgery yesterday and was on pain medication. "She was told to take the day off but she said, 'No, No I'll work,'" says another source.
