The Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star explained that after MRI, doctors discovered she had “a broken knee, a hairline fracture in [her] ankle and a torn ligament.” She did not explain how got injured, but did reveal a silver lining: She does not need surgery.
Her friend and fans wishes her and flooded the comments section with concerns. Strength and nutrition coach Adam Rosante wrote, “Apparently HSS actually stands for Hair & Shining Skin. Dude! You’re the only person I know who can walk out of that hospital looking like they just stepped out of a commercial.” One fan summed it up neatly on behalf of others, writing, “GIRL WHAT ON EARTH DID U DO!????!”
