Jeff Lewis appeared solo during the February 3 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, but it wasn't originally supposed to be that way. Host Andy Cohen revealed that the Flipping Out designer was meant to be joined by a fellow guest that night.
"By the way, Jeff was originally supposed to be on with Lisa Barlow tonight, but Lisa had to cancel because she accidentally got glue in her eye," Andy explained at the top of the show. "So, Lisa, we hope you get well soon."
Lisa recently opened up to Page Six about her WWHL absence, explaining that it was due to a medical emergency. “It was awful,” she told the publication earlier this week. “I was on the phone with my girlfriend and I literally went to put my eyedrops in and it was the nail glue.”
The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City cast member said that nail glue was accidentally put in the place her eyedrops normally go when her house was cleaned. The bottles are also a similar size.
Lisa immediately went to the hospital where a doctor told her that she "damaged a cornea" but she was "not going to be blind." “It scratched up my whole eye and they had to use surgical tweezers to pull out the eyelashes on the corner," Lisa shared.
She added that the doctors put “stem cell over my whole cornea with a soft contact lens to do rapid healing.” However, when it came time to appear on WWHL, Lisa said that she still needed time to recover. “It’s just an awful pain and it looked so swollen,” she told Page Six. “It looked terrible, and I’m, like, I can’t go on Watch What Happens Live.”
Luckily, Lisa said that she felt "so much better" and hoped to be "100 percent" by the end of the week.
In a video in her Instagram Story on Friday, February 5, Lisa updated followers on her condition while sharing a look at her injured eye. "Look it. It's swollen. I can barely open it," Lisa said in the clip. "So sad!"
Here's hoping Lisa gets well soon!
