Actress Kristin Chenoweth released from hospital

Kristin Chenoweth has been released from hospital after being injured on the set of “The Good Wife”.
The 43-year-old actress – who plays a political reporter in the fourth season of the CBS drama – is now recovering at home after being treated at Bellevue Hospital after being hit by a piece of lighting equipment that the wind had blown out of place while shooting a scene.
Kristin received treatment at the scene before being rushed to hospital after she was struck by the lighting silk on Kent Avenue in the Williamsburg area of Brooklyn, and she was thought to have hit her head on the ground when she fell.
Her representative said in a statement: “Kristin has been released from the hospital and is home recovering. She thanks everyone for their prayers and well wishes.”
Following the incident, “Will and Grace” actor Sean Hayes (who starred opposite the blonde beauty in Broadway production “Promises, Promises” in 2010) took to his twitter account to wish the 43-year-old star a “speedy recovery”.
He tweeted – “Sending out my love and wishes for a speedy recovery to my former leading lady, @KChenoweth.”
Kristin has previously starred in “The West Wing”, “Glee”, “Four Christmases”, “The Pink Panther” and “Pushing Daisies”.

Chenoweth was injured Wednesday when a gust of wind knocked over lighting equipment, which hit her and knocked her down. She’d been filming an episode of “The Good Wife,” which stars Julianna Margulies and will feature Broadway babe Chenoweth in a recurring role this season.
“That area is a vortex for wind … and a big gust of wind blew the lighting off the scaffolding” – a witness told TMZ. The actress was hit “square in the head” – the witness said. A 911 call was placed shortly after 5 p.m. EDT.
While New York Fire Department representative said a woman injured at the address in question had suffered “minor injuries,” scary photos posted by TMZ showed Chenoweth strapped to a backboard and wearing a neck brace as she was being loaded into an ambulance.
Chenoweth’s usually peppy Twitter account was silent Thursday, with this plaintive plea her most recent tweet, sent the previous afternoon – “Where is a 7/11 when i need one?”
The actress wasn’t calling 7/11 instead of 911, however – On Wednesday, July 11, 7-Eleven stores were giving away free Slurpees. And who doesn’t love a Slurpee?
Best wishes, Kristin!

Following the accident, Chenoweth was treated by medics at the Brooklyn filming location before being taken to the hospital.
A family friend said Chenoweth’s parents were flying to New York to be with their daughter during her recovery.
Chenoweth won a Tony Award for her role as Sally Brown in the 1999 Broadway revival of “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown,” and an Emmy Award for her work on the television comedy/drama “Pushing Daisies.”
This fall, Chenoweth will have a recurring role in “The Good Wife.”
“Chenoweth will match wits with both Alicia, played by Julianna Margulies, and Peter, Chris Noth, in her role as a top-of-her-game political reporter who wants to know more about the Florrick campaign and marriage” – according to CBS.
The Broken Arrow native earned two Emmy nominations for her role as April Rhodes on the popular television series “Glee.” Chenoweth made her Broadway debut in 1997 in the Kander and Ebb musical “Steel Pier.” She has since appeared in the Broadway productions of “Epic Proportions,” “Wicked,” “The Apple Tree” and “Promises, Promises.”
