A well-known Salt Lake City woman has been in a car accident. Her most notable injury: broken fingernails.
For most people that would be no big deal. For Lee Redmond, who has not cut her fingernails since 1979 and who holds the World Record for longest fingernails, it's the end of her notoriety. No more television appearances, no more mall openings: she's now just one more grandmother with immobile hair.
The one thing you can be sure of is this: somewhere, lawyers are imagining ways to monetize the damages. Now that Redmond doesn't have those long nails, she'll be able to reach into some deep pockets.
Here she is on Ellen explaining how she uses the bathroom.
