Nick Cannon, who is suffering from what wife Mariah Carey called “minor kidney failure,” has been moved to a hospital bed closer to home. So much for being “straaaaaanded in Aspen.”

“Currently being transfered to a hospital in LA. Thank you all for all your love, prayers and concern. You know me. … I will be a’ight,” Cannon wrote late Wednesday on Twitter.

The stranded reference came from Carey on her blog, where she put a “dramatic diva” spin on what she acknowledged was a “serious situation.” The couple and their 6-month-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, had been celebrating the holidays in fine style in the Colorado enclave.

In the medical community, there is no such term as “mild kidney failure,” Dr. Bryan Becker, the immediate past president of the National Kidney Foundation, told the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday. However, Becker speculated that Cannon might have been hospitalized for some decrease in kidney function.

The kidneys flush extra fluids, waste material and salts from the blood, so if they slack off for whatever reason — Becker mentioned illness, dehydration or taking an over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication — those things may build up in the body.

Cannon’s “America’s Got Talent” cohorts expressed sympathy, with Howie Mandel tweeting “Get well buddy” and Sharon Osbourne saying on “The Talk” that “he’s young, he’s strong and he’s going to be fine.”

Carey told People magazine that Cannon was stable but “in a lot of pain.” As always, Carey said, “he’s in good spirits considering the situation.”

Actress Deschanel asks court to formalize split

LOS ANGELES – Zooey Deschanel has filed for divorce from her rocker husband of two years.

The actress cited irreconcilable differences with husband Ben Gibbard in the Dec. 27 filing in Los Angeles. They had announced their break-up in November.

The 31-year-old actress stars in the Fox sitcom “New Girl” and was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for her performance. Gibbard is the lead singer of the rock band Death Cab for Cutie, which released the album “Codes and Keys” in May.

Deschanel and Gibbard were married in September 2009 and have no children together.

Deschanel’s publicist has said their split was “amicable.”

Olbermann’s in spat with bosses again

LOS ANGELES – Keith Olbermann, the TV personality famed for giving his employers at least as many headaches as ratings points, seems poised for one of his biggest fights.

The irascible host of “Countdown” is locked in a quickly escalating battle with his bosses at tiny Current TV, which he joined last year and where he reportedly makes $10 million a year.

Olbermann was conspicuously absent from the airwaves during Current’s reporting on the Iowa caucuses Tuesday night. Current has maintained that he was invited to host the network’s caucus coverage, but declined for reasons he did not explain.

“I was not given a legitimate opportunity to host under acceptable conditions,” Olbermann wrote in a statement Wednesday. “They know it and I know it.”
