Rep says Leachman is ‘totally fine’

Cloris Leachman is at home recovering from a bad cold, says a publicist for the U.S. actress and recent Dancing with the Stars castoff.

A representative for the 82-year-old entertainer told She went to seek some medical attention. She's totally fine. She was at a family event on Saturday. She's at home now.

The publicist added that Leachman plans to later this week tape a surprise segment for the dance competition series, which wraps its seventh season next Tuesday.

The Oscar-winning actress is to begin work on Quentin Tarantino's World War II epic, Inglourious Basterds, next month.
