Howie Mandel says he’s “home and doing better” after collapsing at a local Starbucks. The 65-year-old television personality updated fans on social media, after being hospitalized for a health scare. Mandel told fans on Twitter that he experienced low blood sugar, writing: “I am home and doing better. I was dehydrated and had low blood sugar. I appreciate the great doctors and nurses that took such good care of me. Thank you to everyone who reached out but I am doing ok!”
Mandel was with his wife and friends at a Starbucks in the Woodland Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles on Wednesday when he suddenly passed out.
