Howie Mandel says his wife wasn’t drunk in bloody fall at Vegas hotel — but here’s what she did take

The gummies were the problem.

Howie Mandel is speaking out to clarify his wife’s recent accident that left her in a pool of blood.

“First of all, she wasn’t drunk,” Mandel, 68, told TMZ on Tuesday.

“I’m going to tell you the truth: she took gummies. So it’s not an alcohol problem, she was on pot.”

The “America’s Got Talent” judge added that she got out of bed in the middle of the night and “fell,” and it was “really scary.”

He added, “I put her on the bed and tried to give her ice. And I didn’t have ice so I gave her cans of soda to put on her head…then she threw them across the room. I didn’t know it was cut so bad, and I wanted it to stop swelling.”

He said that finally he could see the “bone” so he called the front desk and asked him to call 911. When they asked Mandel what happened, he said, “I don’t know, but there’s blood everywhere.”

They proceeded to send security up, and he described the scene as “there’s blood everywhere, there’s Coke cans that have been thrown across the room. They’re taking pictures.”

He said because the hotel thought he attacked his wife, “They had me leave the room and asked her what happened. She kept saying, ‘I don’t know.’ Then she started laughing, because she realized how this was going.”

Mandel has been married to his wife, Terry Mandel (nee Soil) for over 40 years, since 1980, and together they have three children.

Mandel had initially attributed his wife’s accident to being “tipsy.”

Appearing on “Live with Kelly and Mark” on Monday, the “America’s Got Talent” judge explained that he and Terry recently took a trip to Sin City that went horribly awry.

“We partied,” Mandel recalled. “It was too much. And [Terry] was tipsy. I did not know that, and in the middle of the night she got up and, I don’t know where she was headed, but she headed into the wall.”

He added, “And she fell and hit the wainscoting. She hit that as she went down. She slipped, went down, hit that on her eye, then fell on the floor, and broke her cheek.”

In a photo shared by the former “Deal or No Deal” host, Terry’s face suffered severe bruising and lacerations to her forehead and left eye.

“I turn on the light, I look, I look around the bed. She’s in the corner, face down, and I didn’t know she’d cut her head. But blood is pooling,” he shared.

After that, Terry was rushed to the hospital and treated for her injuries.

She’s made a full recovery, and Mandel said “She is absolutely perfect. There is not a scar. She is beautiful.”

He told TMZ that on their way home from the hospital, they ran into another couple at their hotel, and his wife jokingly promised him that she would be a “good girl” from now on.

“That’s not funny!” Mandel said.
