Paul Rodriguez rushed to hospital

...but then again, who hasn't lately?

TMZ

TMZ has learned comedian Paul Rodriguez was taken by ambulance to a hospital in Washington, D.C. today ... after complaining of severe abdominal pain.

Rodriguez, the Chairman of the California Latino Water Coalition, was in D.C. for congressional meetings. Mario Santoya, an official with the Coalition, tells TMZ he was with Rodriguez last night at a restaurant and he seemed fine.

But this morning, Rodriguez called Santoya and said he was in severe pain and needed a doctor. Rodriguez said he had been throwing up all night and running back and forth to the bathroom.

Santoya went to Rodriguez's hotel room and found the comedian laying immobile and in great pain.

Santoya called an ambulance and Paul was rushed to George Washington University Hospital, where he is currently in the emergency room. The hospital says Rodriguez will be admitted and spend the night, at the very least.

We do not know specifically what caused the medical emergency.

UPDATE: Sources close to Paul tell us he's being treated for an abdominal infection and is expected to make a full recovery. We're told it's not too serious.
I do hope he'll be okay, he is A Million to Juan

If they try to deny him health coverage as an illegal immigrant he can just explain that he was Born in East L.A..

I am beginning to think this is an early warning sign of an imminent zombie apocalypse.

Seriously, what the hell is going on? Did all these celebs eat the same bad batch of shrimp or party with some seriously mess up drugs?

Or it could be a big hoax into pushing Obamas Health Care Reform.

Re: Paul Rodriguez rushed to hospital

This is getting a bit crazy. Are Paul, Dennis, and Tori getting a reality show or something?

Let's hope Paul's Balls of Fury keep him away from going to Tortilla Heaven (although that depends more on whether he's Naughty or Nice). Did this happen in Beverly Hills? Chihuahua is often substituted for tofu there... maybe he got sick. Let's send some Bread and Roses to the hospital.

Re: Paul Rodriguez rushed to hospital

Well hopefully his Blood Work will come Back by Midnight; that's when The Shipment of Made In America H1N1 vaccines come in. Either way, he shouldn't have eaten that Tortilla Soup from the Melting Pot down on Lonely Street. That's the Price of Glory when you're betting on Miracles.

Attention whores with their "bad tummies" and their Rock and Roll music.


It's GAS BITCHES. Fart in the ER, pay your bill, and go home.

Hopefully he doesn't need surgery for the abdominal area. Anytime you get work down there, it can interfere with The Whoopee, Boys.

Paul Rodriguez wasn't in Balls of Fury. Now you're just being silly and mixing up Mexicans.

Re: Paul Rodriguez rushed to hospital

Did someone hail a D.C. Cab to the hospital?

(Really? No one mentioned this yet?)

I get those pains whenever I eat a burrito. He'll be alright.
Have a bowl of Cheerios with bananas and drink a glass of cranberrie juice.
And some WhiteCastles.
