At 66 it's called being old.

I (and everyone I know) treat exhaustion by turning off the phone and going to bed.
I wonder why they have to go to the hospital instead?

how dumb    

I know plenty of people who work REAL JOBS for a living.. hard lifting, heavy physical labor..... they also have families and other responsibilities. NOT ONE of these people ever was hospitalized for EXHAUSTION.

Hey rich people - exhaustion is what a normal person feels after doing real work. You don't need a hospital to treat it. Usually, getting a little sleep will do it.... Come on!

Funny how when non-celebrities have surgery, they're thrown out of the hospital before they can stand up, but celebrities get to be in the hospital because they're "tired". WTF?

There is NO SUCH THING AS BEING ADMITTED TO A HOSPITAL FOR EXHAUSTION!!! Nobody believes that. Ask ANY doctor or nurse if there is such a diagnosis, they will tell you there isn't. Obviously, she had been doing too much coke and had to go in. When will publicists realize that nobody has EVER believed the "Exhaustion" lie?
