Argentine actress and television host Susana Gimenez has been hospitalized in this capital due to a "complicated" hiatus hernia, her representatives said.

The variety show host is receiving treatment at the Los Arcos clinic in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo, where she spent the night, TV producer and host Alejandro Wiebe, nicknamed "Marley," said.

Wiebe, who has been hosting Gimenez's show since Tuesday, said in a message to "the people who love her" that she would spend only one night in the hospital and that her condition "is nothing serious."

He had initially said she was suffering from acute gastritis.
