The domestic doyenne wrote on her blog Wednesday that she returned home Tuesday night and was planning to head into New York that evening since she had an early call for “Today” and “The Martha Show.”
“As I leaned down to whisper goodbye to a dozing Francesca, 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,” Stewart wrote. “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.”
After realizing she had a “pretty serious gash,” Stewart said she called her daughter and asked her to make sure a plastic surgeon would be waiting for her at the emergency room.
I’ve never experienced the full Martha, but here at the world headquarters of the Scottish Terrier and Dog News, we do joke about Bridget’s “concrete head,” which does leave bruises on my shins fairly regularly.
