Giada De Laurentiis suffered a gory accident and sliced her finger during the Food Network’s annual Thanksgiving Live special on Saturday, Nov. 23.
The Italian-American chef’s knife slipped while she was trying to cut some turkey she had just prepared.
“She seemed to go pale and got very quiet putting pressure on it and whispering to Ina that it was bad,” “She looked like she was about to faint.”
The 43-year-old immediately left the show to receive medical attention for her deep cut.
De Laurentiis was a trooper and returned back to the kitchen with her bandaged pointer finger.
