Taylor, 78, was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles earlier this week for symptoms of “an ongoing condition,” caused by congestive heart failure.

Taylor’s reps released a statement saying, “This issue is being addressed. She is currently being kept in the hospital for monitoring.”

“Her family and close friends are appreciative of the warm support and interest of her loyal fans but have asked that people respect her privacy and allow her medical team the time and space to focus on restoring her back to health,” the statement continued.

Taylor, best known for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1966) and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1958), has a long history of health problems. She underwent heart surgery in October 2009.

A committed soap opera freak--err, fan, Rolla Bahsous was thrilled to begin her professional writing career writing about everything soaps. But her love for television did not stop at daytime! Rolla is excited to be using her guilty pleasure, following celebrity gossip, at FabulousBuzz.com. Rolla's had a few encounters with her favorite celebs, including a fingertip brush and a "Take care, sweetheart" from Michael Buble, as well as a flying kiss from Nick Carter - in both incidents Rolla forgot how to breathe. Rolla's University of Toronto degree in communications, political science, and theater is evidence of her diverse interests. When she is not writing, Rolla enjoys her obsession with fairies, coffee shops, and working out, (while watching television, of course!).
