Mayim Bialik worked the red carpet on Monday - just five days after a car accident left her with a “very impaired right hand."
But the actress appeared to be in good spirits at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Performers Peer Group Cocktail Reception, accessorizing her gray dress with black pumps and a splint.
“[It] took a lot of people to get me here but we did it,” Bialik told Access Hollywood, adding that once the bandages and the splint come off there will likely be a scar “running through my whole hand.”
So how will the nominee for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series, for her role as Amy Farrah Fowler on “The Big Bang Theory,” dress her wound at the Emmy Awards on September 23?
“We had already planned on a long sleeve dress. I'm a modest dresser anyway. There are not many dresses that cover your fingertips though so it might take a little of expanding the fabric, trying to get this contraption in a sleek black,” she told People of her splint. “I don't think my stylist would let me bedazzle my splint.”
Bialik said her life off the red carpet is slowly getting back to normal, as well.
The morning of the reception, Bialik tweeted that she “trimmed my boys' nails successfully using only my left hand. Feeling like a capable mom again after my accident: priceless.”
TMZ was the first to report that the white Volvo Bialik was driving collided with another vehicle on Hollywood Boulevard and La Brea Avenue Wednesday.
Los Angeles Police Lt. Andrew Neiman originally reported that Bialik suffered “severe lacerations to her left hand and thumb.”
Mayim you look beautiful because you are beautiful. My 18-year old daughter admires you, your intelligence, your genuine way of communicating with others not to mention your phenomenal talent. I say this because it makes me feel proud of who she has chosen to admire and see as a role model.
Much love to you and your family Mayim. Praying you'll heal quickly! Hoping you bring home that Emmy!!
CNN – stop citing TMZ. That company is absolute trash.
Woah this blog is wonderful i really like studying your articles. Stay up the good work! You know, many people are hunting round for this info, you could aid them greatly.
She really does look wonderful. Did any of you see her on "What Not to Wear"? I guess the show helped...because this is a turn around! Back then she just wore any cloth sack lying around, as long as it had an opening for easy breast feeding!
mayim's makeup and hair look fabulous...
watch that back problem ya hear
Woot – Sheldon is getting visited by "the stranger"
Unless the picture is backwards it looks to me like she has the problem with her right hand not her left hand...
Forgot to post the quote from the police...
"Los Angeles Police Lt. Andrew Neiman originally reported that Bialik suffered “severe lacerations to her left hand and thumb.”
Glad to see the police know their right from their left...
Cops and journalists never get the story straight.
I truly think Howard is under-appreciated- he's nomination material also.
i like her in big bang theory.. she is a character.. get well soon mayim
accident claim accidents direct
she is very funny on big bang!
she has class, does not sit on her fat ass and do nothing. she is a go getter.
Next time on a very special Blossom: the dangers of driving
outfit looks awsome and so does the hair and makeup
I like her as an actress and a good person, but why did the media frenzy surrounding her injured thumb grow to such exponential proportions?? They barely reported anything on Wynona Judd and hubby's motorcycle accident in which he lost a LEG! Come on now, fair is fair in reporting!
She is a Professional and will continue to be a performer for years to come.
Greetings folks. Everyone is cordially invited to visit – thestarofkaduri.com

I hope she wins. Not fooling.
