Hey, can I ask you about
the accident you had?
Yeah.
Because I don’t know about it.
All I know is that you had an
accident because I don’t read
magazines and all that stuff.
So all I know is
you had an accident,
and that you had
to get stitches.
Yes.
And that’s all I know.
How many stitches
did you have to get?
40 to 50 in this region here.
Wow.
Well, that region
looks beautiful.
Thank you.
Yeah, you look amazing.
Thank you.
[APPLAUSE]
40-50.
They’re good.
Thank you.
So you fell down steps.
I kind of fell up
steps a little bit.
That’s even more embarrassing.
Yeah.
[LAUGHTER]
So you tripped on the lip
of a step or something?
I kind of tripped
before I got there.
And then the step was
kind of the problem.
If it had been flat ground,
I would have been fine.
So you hit like
without protecting?
You went right face first into–
I went to catch myself, and
I barely missed the step,
and then kind of jammed my
hand in there and hit my face.
Wow.
So were you– and your teeth
are OK and everything, right?
I had to get a little
something done.
Like it knocked your teeth, too?
No, just chipped the bottom.
But it was an easy little thing.
Yeah.
I was glad.
Yeah.
Were you alone when it happened?
My son was asleep upstairs.
So you were by yourself.
Yeah.
And so what did– you just
called 911 right away?
Did you look in the mirror?
Did you see like–
Yeah.
I just kind of went inside and
I didn’t realize how bad it was.
I feel like anytime
anything happens,
it’s adrenaline or something.
You just don’t
really know until you
like take a second to assess.
And I just have great
people around me.
So I had somebody come
pick me up and take me.
And of course somebody came
over to look at my kid.
Right.
To watch him sleep.
Yes, that’s important.
But, yeah.
And everybody just kind
of sprung into action.
Man, oh man.
Well, you look fantastic.
And I’m so sorry.
That must have
been so scary too,
because when you have
blood, you don’t really
know what the extent is.
Yeah, I mean it was one of
those random things, you know.
And in life, I feel
like we all kind of
have some unexplainable
randomness that
happens sometimes.
And I feel good now.
But I heard you say that you
were going to look different.
But do you think
you look different?
Because you don’t
look different.
I feel like I do a little bit.
My biggest worry kind of at the
time was that if I say nothing,
then later on I feel
like people are going
to– because people pick apart.
I mean, you know what
that’s like, just kind
of being under a microscope.
And I was like, I
feel like people
are kind of going to
say, like what has she
done to herself electively?
And it definitely
was not a choice.
Right.
But I feel close to myself.
I feel pretty close to normal.
Well, I think you look great.
Thank you.
