Giada De Laurentiis accidentally sliced her finger during Saturday’s Thanksgiving Live special on the Food Network, which teaches everyone the dangers of knives. Laurentiis couldn’t believe what happened on live TV, but she’s doing fine.

When a viewer tweeted well-wishes, De Laurentiis responded that she might need to get stitches. Just a few hours earlier, the Food Network host posted a photo of her festive manicure, unscathed.

The Giada finger story has gained a lot of attention. Alton Brown, who hosted the third annual special, started the hashtag #savegiadasfinger following the incident and even joked about the damage on Twitter.

The Italian-American chef’s knife slipped while she was trying to cut some turkey she had just prepared.

“She seemed to go pale and got very quiet putting pressure on it and whispering to Ina that it was bad,” an eyewitness told Radar Online. “She looked like she was about to faint.”

The 43-year-old immediately left the show to receive medical attention for her deep cut.

Thanksgiving Live aired, of course, live on Saturday, but it will replay leading up to Thanksgiving, including on Thanksgiving Day.

Some people joked that they fainted when they heard about the Giada finger incident.
