Eye Injury

Teri Hatcher was injured on the Desperate Housewives set Tuesday when a light bulb exploded and shards lodged in the actress’ eye, People reports. “Glass lodged in my right eye and proceeded to scratch my cornea,” she told the magazine. “I was taken to a wonderful eye doctor, and now am wearing a most glamorous eye patch over the right half of my face. “I’m in some pain, but trying to see the humor in the oddity of it all. No one was at fault,” she said. Hatcher said she expects to be away from the set for just two days, resuming production on Thursday. “I like to look at the positive,” she said, “and the good news is, the cornea is the fastest healing tissue in the body.” Still, there was a downside to the injury–other than the obvious, that is. Hatcher was forced to cancel an appearance at the AmberWatch Foundation launch party in Los Angeles after being temporarily taken out of commission. The actress, who herself recently disclosed a history of childhood abuse, is the new spokesperson for the organization, dedicated to prevent child abduction and molestation. Hatcher better heal fast. In addition to wrapping up the second season of Desperate Housewives, the actress is prepping to jump on the promotional trail for her upcoming book that’s one part memoir, one part practical advice. In Burnt Toast and Other Philosophies of Life, the 41-year-old actress talks candidly about her personal life, in particular her difficulty in finding a man. “People expect that if you’re pretty, successful, the boyfriend mission should be easy,” she writes in her book. “I never though I’d be [over] 40 and have no one to go to dinner with, nor someone who loves me and whom I trust, but here I am. Sad but true.” The book hits stores May 2.
