Martha Stewart Gets Stitches

Martha Stewart got an unpleasant welcome home after her trip to South America when, leaning down to whisper to her dog, Francesca, Francesca “bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove hitting an opponent’s face.” “I was entirely startled and my neck snapped back,” Stewart wrote on her blog. “I felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from my split lip.” Stewart called to arrange for a plastic surgeon to meet her at the emergency room. She then called the police to ask for a ride to the hospital, but remembered her driver was waiting to take her into the city and had him take her there instead. She got nine stitches to her upper lip.
