Howie may have been overdoing it.

E! News confirms that Howie Mandel was hospitalized Monday in his hometown of Toronto after experiencing an irregular heartbeat—not after suffering a minor heart attack, as some Canadian outlets were reporting.

"Howie is in the hospital being monitored for an irregular heartbeat but doctors expect him to be released and back to work tomorrow," a rep for the 53-year-old Deal or No Deal host said in a statement. "He did not have a heart attack."

Mandel was reportedly in Toronto shooting scenes for his second foray into real-deal TV, the Candid Camera-inspired Howie Do It, which premiered last week.
