Giada De Laurentiis slices finger during Thanksgiving special -- PHOTO

Posted on

Saturday’s Thanksgiving Live special on the Food Network ended up serving as a public service announcement: Try not to cut your finger while cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Giada De Laurentiis accidentally sliced her finger during the live special, and she posted the gnarly evidence on Instagram:


When a viewer tweeted well-wishes, De Laurentiis responded that she might need to get stitches. Just a few hours earlier, the Food Network host posted a photo of her festive manicure, unscathed:


Alton Brown, who hosted the third annual special, started the hashtag #savegiadasfinger following the incident and even joked about the damage on Twitter:


Just to wipe all the bloody imagery out of your head, check out the Instagram video Giada posted of all the Turkey Day food porn:


Thanksgiving Live aired, of course, live on Saturday, but it will replay leading up to Thanksgiving, including on Thanksgiving Day.
