Buddy Valastro will do whatever it takes to bake again.
On Wednesday, Dec. 23, TLC will air a two-hour special titled Buddy Valastro: Road to Recovery. And in an exclusive sneak peek obtained by E! News, viewers quickly learn just how fast the entire family mobilized to support the world famous baker.
In the clip, Buddy arrived back home nearly 12 hours after surgery where extended family was hoping for any and all updates. After Lisa Valastro described the rod that went through her husband’s hand, she couldn’t help but realize how much Buddy’s life had changed in a matter of minutes.
“Is this a dream?” she asked. “It’s a nightmare. Never mind a dream.” As for Buddy, he appeared noticeably weak as he expressed his disappointment over the accident. “I’m so so mad at myself,” he recalled. “My hand is everything to me.”
