Brigitte Nielsen hospitalized after car accident




Surreal Life and Celebrity Rehab alum Brigitte Nielsen was injured in an alcohol-related car accident Wednesday night, but believe it or not, she wasn't the cause. Dr. Drew Pinsky is probably sad to hear that, because he's having a hard time getting people to do new seasons of his show.

TMZ reports Nielsen was the passenger in a Porsche Cayenne that was hit from behind by a Toyota Matrix around 10:20 p.m. The SUV then was pushed forward into a third car. Sources tell the site the woman driving the Matrix had a BAC much higher than the .08 legal driving limit.

Nielsen suffered neck and back injuries and had x-rays at a nearby hospital. "She is back home. She's sore and resting," a rep for the actress says. Wait until Flavor Flav hears about this.
