The photo was posted by Adrienne Gang, who stars in the Bravo show Below Deck. Gang says she was working out next to Underwood approximately one month after the accident.
“I didn’t notice anything amiss on her face,” Gang told People Magazine. “Simply, she looked lovely. She was extremely friendly and gracious.”
In light of Underwood's news that she had gotten 40–50 stitches in her face, some people were incredulous at her appearance.
Obviously, it’s up to Underwood to decide when (or if) she wants to share what she looks like on social media. That being said, we’re glad to see that she felt confident enough in the moment to take the picture.
Of course, plenty of people are speculating about Underwood's injuries.
With the knowledge that Underwood dealt with such severe injuries, the sleuths of the Internet couldn’t help but try to suss out exactly what had changed in her appearance.
Some even hinted at a deeper conspiracy.
And sure, it’s a natural compulsion to wonder about these things — after all, you clicked this article to see Underwood’s face, right?
But conspiracy theories are not helpful, nor do they make the world a better place.
What really matters is the fact that, thankfully, Carrie Underwood seems to be recovering well from a horrible accident.
We’re thrilled that she’s been able to take such strides in her recovery and look forward to watching her perform again.
We all wish her the best!
