LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The jungle forced another celeb to exit NBC’s “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!,” but Janice Dickinson’s departure from the Costa Rican wilderness was only temporary.
On Monday’s episode, Janice temporarily exited the jungle to receive medical treatment for a viral infection. The former supermodel, who started the show with bronchitis, began experiencing discomfort due to hunger and also felt “backed up.”
Fellow contestant Sanjaya attempted to ease Janice’s pain by massaging her stomach after a series of yoga poses and eating a variety of fruits failed to help with her discomfort.
When Janice’s pain ceased to subside, she exited the jungle and spent the night at a hospital. She returned the following day refreshed and chanting, “Family! Family!” as she walked back into camp.
The often-abrasive Janice told her fellow competitors that she was glad to be back and that she especially missed Holly Montag, sister of Heidi Pratt who as forced to leave the NBC series after being admitted to a Costa Rican hospital for a stomach ailment earlier in the season.
