LOS ANGELES (AP) _ ``Ally McBeal″ star Calista Flockhart recovered this week from dehydration and exhaustion after fainting on the set of the hit television show.

A publicist for the actress said Flockhart’s ultra-thin physique had nothing to do with her collapse.

``It was dehydration and exhaustion _ one thing had nothing to do with the other,″ Melissa Kates said.

Flockhart was treated at a hospital for about six hours Wednesday, then spent Thursday recuperating at home, Kates said.

The actress returned to work Friday for the last taping of the Fox show before a two-week holiday break. ``Life is back to normal,″ Kates said.
