Her partner on the show Monte Durham wrote in a text at about 8:10 p.m. that "she is home and resting... Thank God she will be ok."
A text to Allen’s phone was not answered.
Her daughter Mollie Surratt at 8:40 p.m. said her mom “tripped on the train of a bridal gown today while filming an opening scene for” the show and fell on her face. She broke her right wrist. Her right arm and left wrist may also be fractured but it’s hard to ascertain until the swelling goes down, Surratt said.
“A CT scan confirmed that her neck was thankfully not broken,” Surratt wrote. “She will follow up with a specialist Monday to confirm her next steps. She is resting now and in so much pain. It’s been a very scary day but we are so thankful it’s not worse!”
“Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta” is currently shooting its 11th season. It debuted in 2010 as an offshoot of the original version based out of New York and outside a brief hiatus a couple of years ago has been a steady performer for TLC.
Allen, who has been in the bridal business for 40 years, recovered from breast cancer after treatment in 2012.
