Mandy Moore has had a heck of a week, and she has the wounds to prove it! Yesterday on Instagram, the This Is Us star revealed a massive black eye and a wicked set of stitches just above her peepers. Lest you think that she was the victim of some stunt-gone-wrong or simply showing off some killer makeup skills, she’s here to tell you that her new look is actually the result of an unfortunate battle with a shower door.
“Shower door handle – 1, Mandy – 0,” the 33-year-old wrote of her shiner. After asking for recommendations on how to “get rid of a black eye pronto,” the singer shared that plastic surgeon Dr. David Stoker was called in at 9am to stitch her up. “Never had stitches or a black eye before… what a day!”
As it turns out, she had plenty of support to fall back on from her fellow This Is Us castmates and crew.
Sharing a text from Ventimiglia, the songstress revealed that her TV husband, along with hairstylist Michael Preitz and makeup artist Zoe Hay, had all given themselves faux shiners to match her own. “Solidarity,” Ventimiglia wrote in his message to Moore.
Moore was clearly touched, captioning the screenshot, “Don’t mean to blow up their spot, but I have the best work family ever, ever, ever. Come on! Love you @zoehaymakeup, @michaelpreitzhair, and @miloanthonyventimiglia.”
What a sweet gesture. Feel better soon, Mandy!
