Former DALLAS star Victoria Principal was rushed to hospital on Saturday (05JUN05) where she was diagnosed with a rare blood disease.

The 59-year-old actress is a victim of intravascular hypercoagulation and has "suffered in silence for years with this debilitating disease" according to a friend.

Principal, who has a successful multimillion-dollar skin-care range, has since been discharged from Malibu Urgent Care Clinic and is now "at home under doctor's care," reports website PAGESIX.COM.
