It seems like the illness listened as she checked out of the hospital today.
"So I stepped off the plane after a month out of the country, and basically went straight to the hospital for a week," Joel Madden, Richie's boyfriend, wrote on his band's Web site. "But don't worry all is well and we are home with no problems."
