Cloris Leachman is back home after seeking treatment for a “bad cold” on Thursday, her rep confirms to PEOPLE.

Leachman’s rep says the 82-year-old Oscar winner — and recent Dancing with the Stars contestant — wasn’t feeling well after attending the Best Friends Animal Society’s 15th Annual Lint Roller Party in Los Angeles on Nov. 13.

“She went to seek some medical attention,” her rep says. “She’s totally fine. She was at a family event on Saturday. She’s at home now.”

Leachman, who was the sixth contestant ousted from Dancing with the Stars, is also set to tape a surprise segment for the show later this week, her rep confirms.

In December, Leachman is scheduled to begin shooting Quentin Tarantino‘s latest film, Inglourious Basterds, which also stars Brad Pitt. — Brian Orloff and Monica Rizzo
