By now, we've all heard the painful news that Carrie Underwood had to get 50 stitches to her face after her nasty fall last November.
She was so nervous about it that she waited a long time to tell the world about her injuries, which she had feared might be life-changing.
Now we can see a photo taken only weeks after her fall. How does she look?
Carrie Underwood is one of those rare Country singers whose name recognition and adoration extends beyond the Country subculture and into many pockets of mainstream America.
So people in every walk of life were stunned and saddened to hear that her wrist needed surgery after she took a nasty fall, just a week after her moving tribute to the Las Vegas shooting victims.
Only now do we all know that Carrie's face was also badly injured during that same fall on her stairs.
In fact, as she only recently revealed, her injuries were so extensive that she had to receive "40-50" stitches to her face alone.
Obviously, this entire experience must have been very frightening for Carrie.
Not only because she's, you know, a human being, but because she's a public figure. Oh, and one of the most beautiful women on the planet.
Any injury is scary, but an injury to her face could potentially transform her life for the worst.
So we were understandably eager -- yet apprehensive -- to see how Carrie (and her face) are recovering.
And now we have a photograph to examine:
Adrienne Gang was the Chief Stewardess on the first season of Bravo's series, Below Deck.
On December 12th, she tweeted this photo, providing context:
"Just worked out next to @carrieunderwood NBD... she is adorable and so gracious... LOVE HER!
Now, Adrienne has revealed that she had no idea that Carrie was injured at the time. This photo was the first taken of Carrie after her nasty encounter with the stairs -- at least, the first that the public has seen.
Some fans think that they can see signs of injury. Other fans seem to have vague suspicions.
"But how'd she have 40-50 stitches on her face like 3 weeks before this??" one fan asked.
Another pointed out that there were signs of recent injury.
"i can kinda see it?? like on the far side her face looks pretty beat up, but it also looks to be recovering okay."
We can "see" it, too -- but would we have ever noticed it as anything other than "workout makeup" if Carrie hadn't told the world?
"Why is she being cryptic about looking different? Confused."
Like most people, Carrie -- yes, shockingly beautiful Carrie -- is probably much more critical of her face's appearance than anyone else.
Some fans sounded almost disappointed that Carrie looks so good.
"She sounds like she's prepping us for deformity and she looks just fine."
Others say that maybe Carrie's face is worse off than we can see.
"There's no way you can tell from this pic when you can't even see a whole side of her face."
And others, well, are peddling conspiracy theories that we won't try to make heads or tails of.
"I smell either a lie in this tweet or plastic surgery."
We hope that Carrie makes a full recovery. She's beautiful, and even if she has some scarring or some other perceived "flaw," she'll remain shockingly gorgeous.

Teen Mom: OG and Teen Mom 2 are among the most popular series in MTV's storied history.
The stars may not enjoy the same universal name recognition as Snooki or The Situation, but their fans are an intensely devoted bunch with appetitse for every detail of the women's personal lives.
So it should come as no surprise that there's considerable interest in just how much the Teen Moms get paid.
Of course, given their many side projects and business ventures, the amount that each cast member pulls in varies wildly from one to the next ... but suffice it to say, they're all doing very well.
Here's a breakdown of just how much each mom is earning these days:
1. Catelynn Lowell: $25,000 per episode
2. Clothing By Cate
3. Amber Portwood: $25,000 per episode
4. Hard Times For Haute
5. Maci Bookout: $25,000 per episode
6. Off the Bookout

Celina Powell is the latest woman to claim that Offset, Cardi B's fiance, is her baby daddy.
Cardi B and Offset both say that the woman is lying ... but now we have to wonder if Offset, at least, is afraid that she's telling the truth.
Because, to hear Celina tell it, Offset is ducking and dodging her attempts at a paternity test. If he's not the baby daddy, why not go ahead and prove it?
Cardi B and Offset made a "sex tape" -- after a fashion -- and released it to the public. They're engaged.
it's safe to say that they have a pretty good relationship, right? But they're facing their first real test, as a woman is claiming that Offset is the father of her baby girl.
Celina Powell doesn't seem like she's willing to back down, either.
After Offset sent her a cease & desist, she publicly called him out.
So it looks like she intends to hound him until he can prove in court that he's not the father of her child.
We should mention that there's a credibility issue.
Despite being only 22, Celina Powell has identified famous "baby daddies" in the past who turned out to not be the fathers of her children.
She acknowledged her dubious history when she shared with the world her claim that Offset is this child's father ... while assuring her fans that she's not crying wolf this time, she promises.
Honestly, Celina's background makes you wonder if she's a terrible schemer -- like, if she watched fake paternity scams on soap operas and wondered if they were that easy in real life.
Or if she might have other issues. Anybody else remember that girl who's not pregnant who went on Dr. Phil claiming that she is pregnant with God's child? Claiming random rappers as your baby daddy isn't much more grounded than that.
But ... if Offset is just another falsely accused man, then why has he allegedly balked at taking a DNA test?
At least, that's what Celina has claimed that he's done, after responding to a tweet inquiring about a paternity test.
"No her father didn't accept the dna papers."
But that doesn't mean that she's given up.
"But lawyers will do their job and he will take it…one day"
So ... you'd think that Offset would be the one insisting on a paternity test.
Even if he didn't want to bring one up -- maybe putting on a show of absolute confidence that it's not his for Cardi B -- you'd think that he'd go along with a request, right?
Unless he's worried about what the results might be.
That said ... we have to acknowledge that we don't know, for sure, whether or not any "DNA papers," as Celina calls them, were actually sent to him and then rejected.
It's a weird situation, folks.
We know that Cardi B and Offset are making a show of not believing Celina Powell's claims about her daughter, Karma, being Offset's.
But what if she is?
If so -- and that's admittedly a big if -- what does that mean for Offset and Cardi B?
Would that make Celina just another baby mama receiving support, or might it spell doom for Cardi B and Offset's million dollar wedding?
We'll all have to wait before we know more. Offset included.

Eric Trump is totally on to Ellen DeGeneres.
She may play all calm and cool and funny and happy and peaceful and loving on television, but the President's son knows what's really going on here.
And he's finally come out and revealing his truth to the world...
... Ellen DeGeneres is a key member of The Deep State!
This is a term often thrown around by Sean Hannity and other like-minded conservatives.
It gained momentum during the 2016 Presidential campaign after being trumpeted by ex-White House strategist Steve Bannon and it refers to an alleged shadowy entity of civil servants.
This shadowy entity of civil servants purportedly coordinates efforts and policies behind-the-scenes to delegitimize the Donald Trump administration.
Many members of the mainstream press, someone like Eric Trump would argue, are working with The Deep State to bring down the commander-in-chief.
How does Ellen fit in?
What has she done to earn this reputation?
But consider the following Tweet by Eric Trump, which has gone viral for its hilarious accusation:
"Shocking... once again, here are the @Twitter "suggestions" of who I should follow. #DeepState," wrote Eric as a caption to the screen capture of who Twitter thinks he may want to follow.
One person listed there is the previous President of the United States.
Another person listed there is the candidate Donald Trump defeated to become President.
(If either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton are members of the supposed Deep State, well, they aren't very deep undercover.)
And the third person is beloved talk show host, comedian and former American Idol judge, Ellen DeGeneres.
Ellen is very likely a Democrat, but she actually isn't very outspoken when it comes to politics.
Yes, she once sent a message to Donald Trump that was based around Finding Dory.
But she mostly talks on her show about love and respect and hope, which... okay, nevermind. We get it now.
These aren't exactly Donald Trump-espoused values, are they?
As you might expect, Eric Trump's Tweet has become quite a source of ridicule on social media.
Some folks are trying to teach him how Twitter works ("I know you're not the smart one, but Twitter's algorithm looks at who you searched for most recently when making suggestions. It looks like you might have recently searched for a Democrat, buddy.") ...
... while others are just openly mocking him.
Said another user, pretty much summing up Eric's statement:
This is the most unintentionally hilarious tweet of the very very new year!
Fast forward 362 days and we have a feeling it may remain the most unintentionally hilarious Tweet of the year.
Good luck, trying to top it, everyone else on the planet.
This is gonna be a challenge.

Season 2 of Mama June: From Hot to Not premieres on January 12th.
As you know, June Shannon is going to be a beauty queen. The first season documented the steps that she took to lose weight. so the second season will show her trying to make the most of it.
But how, exactly, does she keep the weight off? June Shannon shared how ... and she's getting roasted over it.
Mama June Shannon spoke to People about how she's retained her significantly trimmer figure since she first underwent her body transformation.
"It's all about portion control for me."
That's a common, if not fun, answer. Nobody wants to hear that their fondness for eating a "family size" meal themselves might be what's keeping them back from attaining their dream body.
"It's not easy to eat like you're 'supposed to' and hit the gym all the time, but I'm just trying to maintain it the best I can."
Mama June also shares that she sleeps until 1pm and, in the process, skips breakfast -- cutting out an entire meal's calories while also relishing in the comfort of her bed.
"This sounds bad. But I'm more of a snacker."
Snacking can be fine -- or even, for some metabolisms, ideal -- depending on what the snack is.
June says that a normal snack for her is grapes and cheese.
For dinner, she prefers "baked chicken and quinoa" or "baked pork chops, corn and beans."
"If I'm craving something sweet, Little Debbie jelly cakes are my favorite cheat snack."
Those do sound good.
Just as when news broke of a June Shannon workout video, people were quick to point out that June's "advice" seemed ... less than helpful.
And possibly inherently dishonest.
"Her secret to weight loss?" One commenter replied. "I'm pretty sure it was the gastric sleeve which physically prevented her from eating."
Another took even harsher aim at Mama June, writing:
"I hate when people say they have lost all that weight. No you had it surgically removed. There is a difference between someone busting their ass to lose weight and having the fat sucked out."
(Honestly, that seems silly to us -- weight loss is weight loss)
Another comment, however, cut right to the point:
"I'm pretty sure if someone paid for all my expenses for weight loss surgery, excess skin removal, a personal trainer, and chef that I'd be able to lose weight and keep it off too!"
That's a fair point -- there's much more at work for Mama June than "portion control" and sleeping in.
That same commenter went a little overboard with their next jab, however, writing:
"She's still a hillbilly skank no matter what her weight!"
"Breakfast is the most important meal of the day," another commenter wrote. "And I'm pretty sure she had surgery to lose all that weight."
She sure did have surgery. (Honestly, though, who has time to eat breakfast? Do people really still do that?)
"What a horrible woman! So into herself. How about getting up at a normal time and teaching your kids to eat properly."
If you don't have a job or pets or young children to get you up, 1pm is a perfectly normal time to get up. (Why get up before noon if you don't have to?)
"If we could all be lazy pieces of [excrement] and sleep until 1pm," laments another judgmental commenter. "Kids have school, have a job, and why waste half a good day being worthless?"
So, some of the backlash seems unwarranted -- why do some people get so worked up over when someone else gets out of bed? (Especially since, you know, someone who gets up late was probably up late also)
But some of these seemed to have a point. Mama June's "secrets" to success seemed to have a lot to do with some massively expensive procedures and luxuries that few can afford.

According to a new report, the end may be near for one of journalism's most respected voices.
Barbara Walters may not have a lot of time left.
The long-time reporter and former co-host on The View has not been seen in public for about a year and a half.
The last recorded sighting of Walters took place in July of 2016, after two months after she left The View.
At 88 years old, Walters is allegedly confined to a wheelchair and almost never leaves her apartment in New York City, a friend tells Radar Online.
This isn't stunning news for someone of her advanced age, but the insider is reportedly distressed because Walters is living such an isolated existence.
"No one is allowed access into her apartment," this unnamed person tells Radar Online, adding:
"Friends have been trying to see Barbara since the summer, but the doormen keep turning everyone away."
This same celebrity gossip website has claimed in the past that Walters is suffering from a touch of hearing loss and heart disease; she's supposedly been showing signs of serious dementia for months.
This is very sad if it's true.
In 1976, Walters became the first woman to host a national news program, doing so for ABC and earning a then-unprecedented paycheck of $1 million annually for her work.
From 1979 to 2004, she worked as co-host and a producer for the ABC news magazine 20/20.
She still serves as an executive producer on The View.
But Walters no longer goes into work, which is understandable for an 88-year old.
The problem here is that she doesn't appear to be enjoying a well-earned retirement at all.
"Barbara broke her hip a few months ago, and she's in a wheelchair now 24/7," writes Radar, quoting its source on the story.
"She sits propped up in it in her library overlooking Central Park all day. She stares at the same page of a newspaper for hours."
Continues the source:
"All she does is go from the bed to her wheelchair and back again.
"She hasn't seen her beloved hairdresser or makeup artist, Lori, in over a year. Her house staff washes her hair and pulls it back in a ponytail."
Someone close to the situation thinks Walters has Alzheimer's Disease, Radar reports.
What does bring her joy on a daily basis?
Tuning in to watch her friends and former colleagues on The View, according to the website.
It's unclear for how much longer she'll be able to do this, however.
"Friends just want to say goodbye," this source eerily says. "They simply want to see that she's well taken care of."

Let's give Florida Man credit in the following story:
At least this time he didn't throw an alligator through a Wendy's drive-thru window.
But he did cause a different sort of stink at a different kind of restaurant.
As documented by The New York Post, Nelson Agosto ordered a seafood meal at Crabby's Seafood Shack in Stuart, Florida a few days ago... only to create a major raucous when the food arrived.
According to the incident report of what transpired, an employee warned Agosto about the size of the clams before he placed his order, yet he still insisted on including them in his dinner.
A man is certainly entitled to eat some small clams if he so desires.
After the 51-year-old received his food, however, he whined to the manager about the exact issue the waiter had discussed: the less-than-ideal size of the clams in his meal.
"He was complaining that the clams he was eating were so small, he didn't want to pay for them," police spokesman Sgt. Brian Bossio said last week, per local news outlets.
The establishment responded to Agosto's complaints by giving him another order of clams, free of charge, but this still did not satisfy the patron.
So he called 911.
In the emergency call transcript released by the police department, Agosto tells the dispatcher: "I ordered something, and it was extremely so small."
The operator calmly replied that this wasn't an appropriate reason to dial 911 and gave him the number for the non-emergency line.
Shortly afterward, Agosto called 911 twice more to complain about the clams, claiming he "couldn't get through" to the alternative line given to him by the dispatcher.
When police responded to Agosto's calls, he explained he called 911 because he forgot the non-emergency phone number after the first call, according to King 5.
Eventually, police officers arrested Agosto via summons on a misdemeanor charge of misusing 911.
"It was an arrest, but the officer did not take the guy to jail," Bossio told a reporter.
We suppose he didn't really deserve to spend time behind bars for this act.
But he definitely should be banned from ever eating seafood, like, ever again.
In Agosto's' defense, too, this wasn't the dumbest act ever committed by a Florida resident.

If you've been watching Vanderpump Rules recently, you know that in its sixth season, the show shows no signs of slowing down in terms of delivering an endless stream of drama that's by turns appalling and wildly entertaining.
Things got off to a wild start thanks to the not-all-that-surprising revelation that Jax Taylor's been cheating on Brittany Cartwright.
But it's a testament to just how bonkers the entire cast is that the show's not building its entire season around that storyline.
Aside from the inevitable boring-ass Lisa-centric storylines (If we have to listen to one more conversation about Tom-Tom investor relations...) Vanderpump has maintained a pretty lively pace this year with plenty of infidelity to keep fans engaged.
Monday's episode saw yet another cheating scandal--one that wasn't terribly shocking, but which made for compelling entertainment, nonetheless.
All summer, rumors that Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz were headed for divorce circulated non-stop on social media.
And the couple didn't do much to dispel that notion, what with taking separate vacations and seldom appearing on one another's social media.
So it didn't come as much of a surprise when Lala Kent accused Tom of cheating on Katie on this week's installment of Vanderpump.
But Tom's puzzling response to the allegation has fans confused about what exactly transpired.
"Katie and Stassi and Kristen all went to New York," Lala explained to Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix in the episode.
"I get a phone call from my friend Allie, and she's like, 'La, oh my God, Tom Schwartz is here. And she goes, 'Dude, he can't keep his hands off of me. They made out. He was like touchy-feely."
Naturally, it didn't take long for word to get back to Katie, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, she flipped the eff out.
Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this mystery will be resolved in the same satisfactory fashion as the Jax-Brittany-Faith debacle.
Tom reacted to the allegation the same way he reacts to everything--by playing with his hair, acting charmingly befuddled, and claiming his boozy brain held no memories of the incident in question.
As with the last time he was accused of making out with some rando while blackout hammered, the truth will likely remain a mystery, and Katie will eventually move on.
(And by "move on," we mean angrily bring it up every time she's in close proximity to a bottle of tequila for the rest of her natural life.)
What's really weird about all of this is Lala's motivation for spilling the tea:
"I was down for her. I was never gonna say anything. She is not safe anymore," Lala fumed after learning that Katie had pointed out that Kent is banging a married guy in exchange for private jet flights.
"You f-ck with my relationship, I am coming for you full force. Dude, what a dumb ass bitch. Well, her marriage is gonna end, so that's her karma."
So wait, you weren't gonna tell her that her husband is cheating, and you considered that to be some sort of favor?!
Yeesh. We were actually pretty down with Lala until this season, but she's proving herself to be the malicious, shady-ass female equivalent of James Kennedy more and more with each episode.
Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up on what's thus far been an insanely drama-packed season.

If you're following The Bachelor Spoilers, you already have a pretty good idea of how this season will end.
Well, Jef Holm -- former winner of The Bachelorette and former friend of Arie Luyendyk Jr. -- thinks that he knows how the off-camera relationship between Arie and the winner will end. Or, at least, when it will win.
His prediction isn't exactly flattering towards his former buddy. But Jef is willing to bed $5,000 that he's right.
Jef Holm won season 8 of The Bachelorette, but that doesn't exactly make him an expert on love.
As Arie's former friend, though, he might be something of an expert on this season of The Bachelor's leading man.
Jef Holm doesn't seem to believe that Arie and the woman Arie chooses will last very long.
And he's putting his money where his mouth is, tweeting:
"Doesn't matter who gets out of the limo...I'll give 5k to the charity of @chrisbharrison's choice if @ariejr lasts 1 year with anyone"
That does not paint a flattering picture. But is Jef Holm taking aim more at The Bachelor as a franchise, or targeting Arie?
Our impression is that this is about Arie -- and that it's personal.
Jef and Arie were great buds, but, as you may recall, Jef says that he broke off his friendship with Arie, claiming that the other man was "disgusting."
It's easy for most men to hide their worst aspects and habits during courtship -- especially when money and fame are involved.
But it sounds like Jef Holm believes that Arie won't be able to hide his true, "disgusting" self for long once the cameras go away.
Jeff Holm shared this tweet during the season premiere of The Bachelor.
Probably so that more members of the Bachelor Nation would see it.
By the end of the episode, Arie had already said goodbye to eight women.
But a whopping 21 remain, still vying for Arie's heart. Or, at least, for his ring.
Do you agree with Jef Holm? Or might Arie find a relationship that could really last?
Here's the thing about shows like The Bachelor:
You definitely do get some bubbly idealists who are absolutely hopeless romantics and want to find true love.
But ... you also get some contestants who are just there to be on camera and grow their brands and, possibly, launch other reality opportunities.
Since it's widely believed that Arie Luyendyk Jr. might be there for just such reasons ... what happens if he and an equally fame-hungry contestant end up together?
They might not break up for normal relationship reasons. Not if they have more to gain remaining a couple and, potentially, getting their own show together.
Now, that's admittedly a lot of speculation.
If Arie's here for fame purposes and not because he wants to find love. If he ends up with a like-minded, branding-oriented woman who doesn't care how "disgusting" he is off camera.
Perhaps Arie will land a love-struck contestant who wears her heart on her sleeve, and they'll grow apart over time as reality sets in.
Not for nothing, but Arie Luyendyk Jr. is reportedly "the best" at sex. Sometimes, that can keep a relationship together for months after it should have ended.
Regardless, Jef Holm is taking a bit of a risk. He must really, really have a low opinion of Arie, huh?
