'Big Bang Theory' star Kaley Cuoco on temporary medical leave following weekend fall

Posted on

The Big Bang Theory has been rendered Penny-less in the wake of Kaley Cuoco’s weekend horseback-riding mishap.

A rep for Cuoco confirms that the actress suffered a broken leg and is currently recuperating in a Los Angeles hospital. “She’s scheduled to make a full recovery,” says the spokesperson.

Big Bang rep, meanwhile, says Cuoco will be written out of the episode that is taping tonight. The show will then take a previously scheduled weeklong hiatus.

Cuoco’s accident was first reported by TMZ.

Get well soon, Kaley!
