(Newser) – Martha Stewart's lip was split by her French bulldog Francesca when she bent down to "whisper goodbye"—and she ended up in a hospital where she criticized the "dated" wallpaper. "I must have startled her, because she bolted upright with such force that she hit me in the face like a boxing glove," Stewart notes in her blog. "Blood gushed from my split lip. Frannie was as upset as I was and cowered in her bed."

The queen of all things domestic received three stitches at Northern Westchester Hospital, where Martha took the time to snap a photo of the faux ceiling borders, and wondered if the "little patient room could use some updating."
