CNN Star Injured by Horse ... Of Course, Of Course

Soledad O'Brien is getting ready to undergo a pretty gnarly surgery on her knee -- after she was thrown from a horse in New York on Sunday.

O'Brien tells BV Buzz she was horseback riding with her 2 daughters when her horse "got spooked by another horse and ditched me."

Soledad explained, "I tore absolutely everything in my knee. I am on crutches now and doing physical therapy. I'll have surgery in two weeks when the swelling goes down."

Hey Soledad..Two requests: Get Well Soon! And come back to morning television on a regular basis a.s.a.p. Stay away from Fox though..they're all blonde bimbo robots with a far right handed script. Boring! I've heard rumors that there could be an opening at NBC with Matt Lauer.

I'm sorry to hear about her injury. I like horses too but they can be unpredictable at times. I really enjoy her professionalism. I pray that her surgery goes well and she makes a swift recovery.

Things could have been worse, it's good she is ok. She is one of the VERY best news people CNN has. Good Luck to her.

I wonder if the horse was white , If so it will be called a racist horse . I have never seen this women talk about anything but race ,as soon as I see her face I change the channel. Every story she has ever done always in the end she spins it to blame whites.She is a joke .but I hope she is ok from a white man .
