When I heard that the wonderful Kristin Chenoweth was joining CBS' The Good Wife as a guest star, I was very excited to see what she would bring to one of my favorite shows. My joy turned to sorrow when I heard she'd been injured on the set and wouldn't be able to complete her role. Well it looks like that has changed. 
"I couldn't really form a sentence well after it happened."

USA Today reports that Chenoweth made an appearance on Live with Kelly & Michael, her first since the accident that sent her to the hospital in July. The actress reported that she's "doing much better than I was" and also discussed the incident itself, saying: "Basically a big lighting thing ... fell and hit me. Knocked me out, knocked my face and slammed me down to the ground. ... The back of my head got hit on the curb. ...I had a skull fracture, rib issue and neck issue and a hip issue. I'm issue-ridden, but I'm getting better."

When talking about her injuries, Chenoweth commented that she still wears her neck brace "on and off" and that her memory and speech are improving. She said that after the accident, "I couldn't really form a sentence really well after it happened. I'm the queen of multi-tasking. I'm not so good at that right now. I'll be like, 'Mom, are you talking on the thing that you push, the phone.'"

Chenoweth said that she's been feeling so well that she's even gained a few pounds, thanks to the many gifts and goodies she's received from fans. In response to the outpouring of support, she said "It made me feel so loved."

Returning to the set of The Good Wife

I'm very happy to hear that Chenoweth is on the mend and feeling better. The best news of all came from the actress' twitter feed where she reported: "I was able to go back a shoot a short scene with Alan Cumming on The Good Wife. #blessing!"

There's probably not much that would be quite as scary for an actor than being seriously injured while doing the job that you love. I'm sure Chenoweth must be excited to get back to work, judging by her tweets. I hope that she continues to do well and that she can keep doing her role on The Good Wife this season. So far she's only listed in one episode, but it looks like that may turn into at least two at this point. All around, this is very good news.
