Star Jones Reynolds' most recent view has been from a hospital bed.

The cohost of ABC's The View confirmed Tuesday that she is recovering from a breast lift she had in Los Angeles last week.

Her publicist, Brad Zeifman, told E! News that "Star is recovering wonderfully" from the elective surgery.

What Zeifman didn't comment on were two reports that indicated there was more to the story. In Touch said Jones Reynolds, who turns 44 this Friday, also had a tummy tuck to remove excess skin and both In Touch and the National Enquirer claimed the daytime chat maven was treated for complications following the Mar. 17 procedure.

The Enquirer claimed that Jones Reynolds suffered post-op internal bleeding and had to be rushed to St. John's Health Center in Santa Monica. After reportedly receiving a blood transfusion, she spent the night at the hospital. The tabloid reported that Jones Reynolds was recovering Monday at an exclusive Santa Monica care facility for plastic surgery patients, the Enquirer is saying.

She is apparently convalescing alone, as her husband of 16 months, Al Reynolds, wrote his own ER script on the East Coast. The same day she was going under the knife, Reynolds took a spill at a New York gym, suffering two cuts that required several stitches.

"The doctors kept Mr. Reynolds overnight for observation," Zeifman said Tuesday. "He is recovering and in good spirits."

Jones Reynolds has undergone a highly publicized weight loss over the past couple years, dropping more than 150 pounds and going from a size 26 to a more fashion-friendly 10, according to an interview with the attorney-turned-TV personality in the Palm Beach Post earlier this month. She has since sashayed down the red carpet as an awards show correspondent for E! and penned a book, Shine: A Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Journey to Finding Love.

She and Reynolds wed in November 2004, with Jones' newly slimmed frame sporting a designer gown that boasted a 27 foot-long train.

Her relationship success has led to a new gig as a "Love Coach" for AOL's Coaches site, which offers advice in areas such as wellness and money.

The View is in repeats this week and will resume taping live next week, with Jones Reynolds expected to be back on board.
