    Wow such un sympathetic just people. She is not doing this for sympathy or money. Her husband did not hear her. She had a fall. I am sure it was scary for her. It h ad to have been bad for her to need surgery. She also broke her arm and needed surgery. Have some sympathy and stop man by this about money or some hidden agenda

    Not center of attention kind of person? Bull, this fall that happens to tons of people was not life threatening, isnt a cronic illness, or cancer and she has milked this for pr for her new song. Geesh.

    Did the “freak accident” happen after the baby

  • Autumn Wilkins

    Everyone is saying it's abuse. Honestly it's anyone's guess. But the things that seem strange are her choice of words. Things like "random" and "freak accident". Also "this could have happened to anyone". Those are obvious statements. It honestly seemed like she was trying to hard to explain away a simple accident.

    Yea ok. Plastic surgery and too much botox gone wrong so let me blame an accidental fall. Good grief!!!! Get over yourself!!!

    Plastic surgery gone wrong? Then needed time to reconstruct and recover? No one is buying the fall thing!

    Everybody saying she's "high maintenance" or "too worried about her looks" she probably is worried about her looks especially being a famous person. I'm not famous and I would feel insecure about that. If I had a barely anything like she has I would probably think it looks really bad too. We are all super critical on ourselves so I'm sure if it happened to anyone else they would think it looks horrible too even if it doesn't!

    I'm sick of everyone saying this was caused by abuse 🙄 of course we don't see what all goes on behind closed doors, but I also know that not every guy is abusive, and sometimes random things like a fall cause a bad injury.

    The media is the one who over exaggerated the fall not Carrie herself.
    The media over exaggerates everything for more clicks.

  • Laila Prolifone

    Yeah I'm not buying it Carrie. There a lot of women that are victims of domestic abuse and are afraid to speak up. I can understand her reasons for not saying it because of certain factors, but it's more detrimental to stay quite than it is to speak up. And her being a huge celebrity would empower many women/men to come forward and speak and/or have the courage to leave their abusive partners. CARRIE, IT IS NOT YOUR FAULT THAT YOU ARE A MEGA SUPERSTAR. IF YOUR HUSBAND IS TO INSECURE TO DEAL WITH YOU MAKING MORE MONEY AND BEING MORE FAMOUS THAN HE IS THAT HE FEELS SELF INADEQUATE ENOUGH TO PUT HIS HANDS ON YOU THEN THAT IS HIS PROBLEM, NOT YOURS! I could always tell from this guy's body language that he is very controlling and he's more than likely jealous of her. It's very obvious if people would just pay attention and not be fooled by the act he puts on.
    Get Out, and get away from this guy before things get out of hand again. If not for yourself, do it for your children.

    People hurt themselves, they fall, they break bones, they have accidents....this seems to be something more like abuse and she made sure that story preceded any questions.

    my take is she just wanted to justify taking plastic surgery.

  • OurCrazyBeautifulSparkly Life

    No one cares...this is NOT a tragedy! I dont beleive she fell at all. Plastic surgery...her lips are definitely different.

    Sorry but for months i’ve been hearing about carrie underwood’s accident and the whole freaking time i thought it was a major car accident and now i’m finding out that she fell from the stairs????? Soo????? I do that on a daily basis i’m not assuming she’s lying but there is something more to the story trust me

  • SuperBigblue19
    SuperBigblue19 8 months ago

    I don't blame her. When you have people throwing awards at you & constantly telling you your poop doesn't stink you slowly develop EINS or entertainment industry narcissism syndrome.

    She’s a liar. If it was that severe, then there would be marks. Why not show what happened if it was really just a fall?

    the injury was either she stumbled after drinking Jack Daniels or the plastic surgery went bad she's Plastic Fantastic I think she could even be a man male-to-female transgender although it's hard to tell from this video

    As a healthcare worker. She does have alittle change in her lip. If u really were a fan of carrie u can see the difference in her smile and the way she is talking.

    Wowow so inspiring thanks for showing us ur injured face it gives us so much strength!!! I have lost all respect for her, its an insult to the actual victims and even girls with acne / girls struggling with skin conditions on a daily basis. I hope they see the backlash over this.

  • Shelia Rudesill

    I fell on my face once and had to get stitches in my upper lip and nose. But that wasn't the worst part. My whole face was black and blue and swollen. I looked like I'd been beaten when in reality I stepped off an 18-inch "step" and went flying onto the asphalt. Believe me, I didn't want anyone to see me for weeks and I'm just a regular person. I think if she had allowed photos of herself people would think she was trying to gain sympathy. It was a traumatic fall and she's obviously a sensitive person. Let her be!

  • M_ Christine

    Prior to reading about her injury; I knew next to absolutely NOTHING about CU,other than that she is a former A.I. winner who is now a popular country singer and is vegan. Being vegan myself: I had a positive impression of her.
    When I read about her story that she had fallen and I jured her face and wrist;...something immediately set off my "Spidey senses";something is fishy.
    My first rx; "wow is she so preoccupied w her looks;that she wants a bunch of attention?...I was thinking;"I never thought she's that self absorbed;but it seems that she is".
    For some reason I felt compelled to reread the article. Then my mind went to;i"I think she was hit by her husband".
    At this point; the only thing I feel strongly about,in terms of her story;is that it doesn't ring true.

    I love her voice & she seems like a genuinely great person. But I definitely get the impression that the media has blow her fall out of proportion. Yes she fell I'm sure there are scars thank goodness she's ok but I think she looks the same

    If she had 40 stitches, she must have fallen near the top of some high stairs so how did she get up and get to the phone or even to get her baby? I'm so happy she is okay; but, I worry this same crap is gonna happen to me and I won't be able to get up.

    Unbelievable! What is this saying about our society that she was afraid her career might be over?

  • Regi Milan
    Regi Milan 11 months ago

    I think she's amazing, but I have to say, I think she and the world missed out on an incredible opportunity to share a message of "it's about your heart, not your looks, that matter." With her faith in God and no-fear attitude about that, she could have used this journey to touch so many more people-especially those who don't have millions to spend on top-of-their-field plastic surgeons or to stay away from work and daily responsibilities and, as a result, must live with the more permanent reality of their injury. When I heard about her accident, I thought, wow, just think of who she'll be able to lift those people by sharing her own personal journey and testimony about it all. If anyone could have really done that, it would be here with her loving and faith-filled heart and supportive family behind her. But sadly, that didn't happen. Instead, she went into hiding and didn't emerge until she was almost completely back to her old self. I can understand why as it would have been asking more than a lot to be so public about it all from the beginning. It's just sad to think about how many could have been helped by her experience and weren't. Glad she's okay.

  • Grace Becomesher
    Grace Becomesher 11 months ago

    A woman with maximum talent! In all our accolades, awards, and recognition, there is only One in whom we find satisfaction in pleasing and that is our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. May Carrie find her way out of all the glitz and glam of Solomon's palace and back into the arms of her meek and humble Shepherd Lover. No amount of fame, money, or success can give us the contentment and peace we are looking for, that can only be found in the still quiet moments with our awesome God. Don't let Carrie fool you, money and fame cannot add to or replace the power of seeking out the presence of God. This, and this alone is the source of all our peace, love, and joy. I pray that she will truly surrender her wheel to Jesus and let Him lead her to the green pastures and still waters and restore her soul!!!! In Jesus' name!
