While filming the Food Network's live holiday special alongside Alton Brown, Bobby Flay and Ina Garten, the celebrity chef, 43, sliced her finger.
But even a few stitches couldn't keep Laurentiis's holiday spirit down.
The chef joked on Twitter that her turkey-carving fowl was "an adjustment to my normal mani!"
And even Brown had a sense of humor.
