Former Wrestler Chyna Hospitalised
Professional wrestler-turned-reality-TV star Chyna was rushed to hospital after allegedly indulging in a dangerous birthday binge drinking session.
The star - real name Joan Marie Laurer - was admitted to a California hospital early Saturday (27Dec08) after paramedics were called to her Burbank home just before 5am.
According to TMZ.com, the star - who publicly battled her addictions on U.S. reality show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew in 2008 - was celebrating her 36th birthday with friends, but the festivities reached a halt when the star's alcoholic drinks reacted badly with her prescription medication.
She was reportedly found by her pals, passed out with cuts on her arms before being whisked away by medics.
Doctors were reportedly forced to wait for the star's blood alcohol level to lower before carrying out an assessment.
But Laurer has brushed off the incident. She tells the website, "All I really want right now is a hamburger and fries right now."
