“She seemed to go pale and got very quiet putting pressure on it and whispering to Ina that it was bad,” an eyewitness told Radar Online. “She looked like she was about to faint.”
The special has yet to re-air, but witnesses said that De Laurentiis calmly left the table for treatment and returned 15 minutes later.
She later shared a before and after photo of the cut and bandaging.
Her cohost Brown reassured viewers that De Laurentiis would survive.
