Hargitay's Lung

Collapses Again

1/12/2009 8:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Mariska Hargitay's suffered a partially collapsed lung over the Xmas holiday and it collapsed again today.

Her rep only would confirm that a partially collapsed lung has sidelined the actress.

We're told she has been readmitted to the hospital but will not miss any episodes. We do not know her condition.

Hargitay was sledding in the Hamptons around New Year's Eve but we're now told the cause of the lung problem is unknown.

Although not a true decapitation (head being completely separated from the neck), Jayne Mansfield's death certificate stated cause of death as being:

"crushed skull with avulsion (forcible separation or detachment) of cranium and brain".

Although not an official decapitation, I'm still fairly certain that a collapsed lung will not result in a death similar to her mother's as one person stated earlier.

Mariska is MY IDOL    

I wish the best of luck for a speedy recovery, Mariska. You're in my prayers always!
As for those haters.
This is truly sad, all you idiots say you don't care yet why take time out of your pathetic life to READ the story and then COMMENT it? You all have absolutely no life whatsoever. I don't know what God would do to you but you all need Him. Badly because the way you live your life just isn't going to cut it.
Do everyone a favor and shut up if you truly dont care. No one obviously cares about what you think otherwise we'd be tuning in to listen to the updates on your LiFE. (which you dont have)
Good bye. And hope you learned something. Idiots.

Mariska, you are in my prayers for a quick recovery. To everyone who has something negative to say about her, you obviously don't know what you're saying! Mariska is an amazing actress, wife, mother, and woman. She deserves nothing but the best, and encouragement. I love you Mariska!!
