Marisleysis Gonzalez, 21, the cousin of 6-year-old Cuban refugee Elian Gonzalez (and his surrogate mother in Miami), was hospitalized yesterday after becoming faint during a round of morning TV interviews. The pressure of being in the media spotlight is said to be the cause of her problem. She is listed in stable condition and is expected to recover fully.
