Nate Berkus Hospitalized

After feeling pain during his Today show appearance, the talk show host was rushed to the hospital to treat his appendicitis

Talk show host Nate Berkus was rushed to the hospital Tuesday and is expected to undergo surgery for appendicitis.

"He was on the Today show this morning and he wasn't feeling well," a rep for the actor told "He powered through and then went straight to the hospital after that and they learned he had appendicitis."

Berkus, 39, had been vocal about his symptoms but refused to cancel his appearance on the morning show.

"He was in a lot of pain," adds the rep. "I don't think people realized how ill he was."

The unfortunate ailment will set back a few episodes of The Nate Berkus Show, which debuted this past September.

"He had to postpone tapings for now. He would have taped two shows today," the rep says. "It's anticipated that he will be back next week."

As of now, the Oprah protege is "resting and he's expected to have an appendectomy," says the rep. "Doctors expect a quick recovery."
