    Looks like we can stand down on that prayer alert—former Playmate and Baywatch star Donna D'Errico is not as gravely ill as reports may suggest.

    "She's doing fine," her rep exclusively tells E! News. "She'll be out [of the hospital] tomorrow. She's just staying for now as a precautionary measure."

    D'Errico wound up in an L.A.-area hospital after contracting a drug-resistant staph infection from an ailing family member.

    Friends and fans grew concerned after she updated her Facebook status with the line: "Prayer request—this time for me—a serious medical issue has arisen. Thank you for any and all prayers."

    But her rep says she is now responding to treatment and on the mend: "It is an unfortunate situation but she's recuperating well and looks great."

    That's good news for D'Errico, who's had a rough few days. She made headlines last week when she claimed she was improperly leered at by LAX security during a full-body scan.
