Nicollette Sheridan Rushed to Hospital

Former 'Desperate Housewife' actress Nicollette Sheridan had to be rushed to the hospital after a horse riding accident.

Nicollette wasn't wearing a riding helmet and was "bucked off" her horse so had to get emergency medical treatment.

According to National Enquirer writer Mike Walker: “Nicolette galloped bareback near her San Fernando Valley estate in pouring rain – and suddenly got bucked off by her not-so-gallant steed, slamming head-first into the top rail of a fence. Instantly knocked silly because she wasn’t wearing a riding helmet… and barely able to move as she lay in thick mud about 100 feet from her stable.”

Luckily Nicollette's boyfriend, businessman Steve Pate, found her and rushed her to the hospital.

The magazine added added: “Steve was shocked to discover Nicollette bleeding from a nasty head wound. Picking her up, he ran to his car and rushed her to hospital. After tests for possible internal injuries, docs stapled up the gash and sent Nicolette home.”

Fortunately, she's back at home recovering now and didn't face any serious injuries. Who rides without a helmet? Come on Nicollette, you know better than that!
