Martha Stewart had a bad homecoming after returning from trips to Colombia and Orlando, her dog split her lip open.
She was getting ready to leave again Tuesday when she leaned down for a goodbye to her sleeping pet. “I must have startled her, because she bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove hitting an opponent’s face,” Martha said.
“I was entirely startled and my neck snapped back. I felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from my split lip. Frannie was as upset as I was and cowered in her bed.”
She had a “pretty serious gash” and was rushed to Northern Westchester Hospital’s emergency room in Mt. Kisco, New York where the on-call plastic surgeon, stitched up her busted lip.
Martha was released in time to appear on her show and was able to tell the story.
