Howie Mandel found wife in pool of blood after drunken fall

Howie Mandel feared he was going to be accused of a violent crime when he found his wife bleeding profusely in their Las Vegas hotel room, not realizing she’d just taken a drunken fall.

The “America’s Got Talent” judge, 68, told “Live with Kelly and Mark” on Monday that the incident occurred after he and his wife of 44 years, Terry, “partied … too much” and he was unaware of how tipsy she was.

“In the middle of the night, she got up and I don’t know where she was headed. But she headed into the wall. She fell and hit the wainscoting,” he revealed. “She slipped, went down, hit that on her eye then fell on the floor and broke her cheek.”

Sharing a graphic photo of Terry with a dark purple bruise around her eye and a gash on her forehead, the “Deal or No Deal” host went on to say he found his wife “in the corner, face down … blood is pooling out and I just freaked out.”

After grabbing all the towels in the room, which became “covered with blood,” Mandel said he could “actually see her skull. It opened up.”

Mandel then asked the front desk to call 911, but instead they sent up security personnel, who were immediately skeptical of the scene.

“My wife’s lying on the bed, there’s blood everywhere,” Mandel said. “I don’t know what happened. They ask her [what happened]. I said, ‘Please, just call 911. I love this lady. Please let’s take care of her.’”

Terry was eventually taken to the hospital and has since made a full recovery without a single scar.

When asked now what happened, Terry simply tells people: “Vegas!”
