Debbie Reynolds hospitalized after bad reaction to medication

Debbie Reynolds arrives at the TCM Classic Film Festival opening night premiere of the 40th anniversary restoration of "Cabaret" at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on April 12, 2012, in Hollywood, Calif. Getty

Debbie Reynolds has been hospitalized and is canceling upcoming appearances after suffering an adverse reaction to medication.

Reynolds' publicist Kevin Sasaki says the singer-actress was hospitalized in Los Angeles after having the bad reaction. She is canceling shows and appearances through the end of the year.

Her manager Milt Suchin said in an email to Reuters on Wednesday that Reynolds "had an adverse reaction to some medicine and is on the mend and hopefully will be released today." He did not provide other details.

Reynolds is best known for her role in the 1952 film "Singin' in the Rain" and earned an Oscar nomination for her gutsy character in "The Unsinkable Molly Brown."

The 80-year-old performs numerous shows and makes appearances each year. She is scheduled to appear on a float promoting pet adoption in the upcoming Rose Parade.

Last year, Reynolds sold her collection of film memorabilia, including dresses worn by Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn, for nearly $23 million.
