Personal finance adviser Suze Orman is resting at a Chicago hotel after having an emergency appendectomy over the weekend.

Spokeswoman Kristin Bouton says the surgery was performed on Orman on Saturday night at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.

A hospital spokeswoman says Orman's name is not listed on a patient database and could not confirm Bouton's information.

Bouton told the Chicago Sun-Times on Wednesday that Orman was released from the hospital Tuesday and will rest at the hotel for several days before returning to her home in Florida.

Orman did manage to send out a message on Twitter while she was hospitalized on Tuesday.

"I am better but still in the hospital so I will not be at [an upcoming event at] the Y," she tweeted. "Sorry about that. This entire event is unreal."

Orman, a Chicago native, hosts a show on the cable financial channel CNBC, and is a regular contributor to Oprah Winfrey's magazine and TV show.
