Blake Lively Stung By Bees on the Eve of Her Birthday


Blake Lively had a miserable 27th birthday last week as she recovered from a bee attack.

The former Gossip Girl star was being photographed for her lifestyle website, Preserve, on Sunday when she felt a sudden “electric shock of energy” and realized she had been stung.

In a post on the blog, she writes, “(It was) the final day of the shoot, I felt an electric shock of energy – was it excitement that I was about to turn another year older? Was it nerves? Why did it feel like agony? I like getting older… I think.

“But this felt terrible. Does your butt quite suddenly (and painfully) deflate when you turn 27? Because mine hurt like hell… then my neck, back, legs and forehead. And oh my hands! They were shriveling (sic). It felt like I was being shot by dozens of tiny invisible darts. I felt like the Wicked Witch, melting, melting, burning, melting.”

She adds, “I don’t know enough about insects to say if they were wasps, honeybees or Mother Nature’s miniature flying tasers. What I DO know, is that just moments before we were in the midst of a gorgeous fall fashion shoot. Now, I was a Monty Python sketch; running at top speed in no particular direction, whipping my arms and hands around like I’d just discovered they were growing out of my shoulders without my previous knowledge.”

Lively admits she was left shaken after the bee attack, but the swelling didn’t completely ruin her birthday – she threw an impromptu party, where guests enjoyed slices of a vanilla cake the actress baked.
