 Hollywood legend, "Smokey" but never poke-y, Burt Reynolds is expected to be out of intensive care Saturday and out of the West Palm Beach Hospital next week.He is being treated for dehydration caused by the worsening of his flu symptoms.

How many fans Burt, 79, has amassed since his move to Tequesta, just north of Jupiter in Florida, no one knows. He has a publicity agent, Erik Kritzer, who informed the major media, especially CNN.
Remember the star of "Boogie Nights", "Smokey and the Bandit"and "The Longest Yard" has had several health emergencies over the past few years.
Being admitted under a phony name, his usually beamy smile got a chance to go in hiding."I saw him Tuesday night at a show we were doing," said Palm Beach realtor Doug Rill, chairman of the Burt Reynolds Institute for Film & Theater, a local acting school.

"He looked great. He gave me a big hug and went on his way."
