Martha Stewart

Hospitalized

After Dog Headbutt

1/13/2011 7:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Martha Stewart needed 9 stitches to close up a bloody gash on her upper lip this week after her dog accidentally headbutted the domestic goddess in the face.

Martha was getting ready to leave her NY home Tuesday when she leaned over to "whisper goodbye" to her dozing french bulldog, Francesca. But Martha says she must have "startled" the dog, because Franny shot upwards and hit Martha in the face ... busting her lip open.

Martha says she "felt a bit of whiplash as blood gushed forth from [her] split lip."

Unable to stop the bleeding herself, Martha first called police to ask for a ride ... before remembering that she had a driver on standby.

Martha eventually made it to the emergency room -- where she was promptly sewn back up.

Not nice at all? BUT! Did Martha alert the media or does she have a photographer on standby 24/7? Stewart never misses a photo op and it is my bet these pics will appear on her show. Queen of Capitalization is Martha Stewart! Even if they were taken by a friend, who is really interested in her split lip!
She will now have an entire program about not waking sleeping dogs - has she never heard of the addage, let sleeping dogs lie!

dog bites leaves puncture holes not a gash. No way is that a bite/ She should of driven her ass to the hospital instead of calling 911
Rich always feel entitled.
Its obvious HER people took the pictures.

Who takes pics of their hospital visit that wind up on TMZ? Is Martha hard up for money? That said her skin looks great for a woman her age.

How did TMZ get those pictures? And why would anyone want them released. Oh wait, it's Martha, nevermind.

i hope they check franny and make sure she's ok. i guess martha is up-to-date on all her shots and didn't transfer any rabies or something to franny.

Looks like a bite and not a head butt. Covering for her dog will most likely happen again.

Dogs don't like people getting close to their faces or their heads, and they don't like to be started. Biting or headbutting will happen. For someone like her to have been a dog owner for many years, she should know better.
