The “America’s Got Talent” judge, 65, came with his daughter, Jackelyn Schulz, on the podcast “Howie Mandel Does Stuff” and took for the first time a strange surprise with the fact that he could not “go out” in peace.
“First, what came this world where you can no longer go private in a Starbucks?” The almond sticks straight out the door.
“I was dehydrated. I had a colonoscopy a few days ago,” he told Shultz. “They empty you out. You take a drink, and you run out – I had consensual diarrhea for, you know, an entire night essentially.”
The “Deal or No Deal” host claimed that the procedure had dehydrated him and “from the moment I awoke from the colonoscopy, I went and I worked.”

“It’s like a really cool, young, cool firefighter — a healthy man — and they said it was you. I was like, well I’m not so worried because that guy looks good!” she awoke the moment to which Mandel added, “I did not know it until you called! That is the fireman with the red arrow. He is sitting up with his sunglasses on, ready to go to the hospital!”
A Wednesday, Almond tweeted that he was “ok” after the horrific incident and thanked the doctors as well as those who came out in his name.
“I am at home and doing better. I was dehydrated and had low blood sugar,” he wrote. “I appreciate the great doctors and nurses who took such good care of me. Thanks to everyone who reached out, but I’m doing it ok!”
