Phew, that was a close call. Today 36-year-old Mayim Bialik, who currently stars on the TV show Big Bang Theory, was in a serious car accident. Earlier reports said that she was in danger of actually losing at least one of her fingers after it was severed in the crash.
According to People it happened earlier today in Los Angeles. She was driving down Hollywood Boulevard in a white Volvo when some tourists drove into her vehicle. LAPD Sgt. Monte Houze told the magazine, "From what I was told there was a lot of blood at the scene." A source told TMZ, "her finger was almost completely severed ... it was just hanging there."
Woah!, as her former Blossom co-star Joey Lawrence would say. (Yes, for those of you who don't watch Big Bang, this is BLOSSOM we're talking about!) Fortunately, later today from the hospital she let everyone know she's going to be okay and that her fingers, in fact, will remain intact.
At the risk of sounding like my 9-year-old son ... if you HAD to lose a body part, which do you think would be the easiest with which to part?
