Nov. 1, 2012 Update
Lilian spoke exclusively to WWE.com for the first time since her accident in Los Angeles. While resting at home, she wanted to clear up rumors about what happened last week.
The SmackDown ring announcer and singer was hit by an SUV while she was working out. She was not in her vehicle. She called it "the most frightening thing" she ever went through.
"I'm suffering from head, neck and back trauma," she explained. "I have lacerations and wounds on the left side of my body."
The Diva remains under close medical care since being released from the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center.
"Thanks to the UCLA medical team who took great care of me," she said.
Lilian is feeling better, but remains on pain medication. She'll undergo further testing next week when the swelling of her injuries goes down. She is still unsure when she'll return to WWE.
"Hopefully I'm on the road to recovery," she said. "I can’t stand sitting here and doing nothing. I miss being on the road for WWE and the fans. I just can’t wait to get back."
Finally, Lilian wanted to tell the WWE Universe that their love and support has kept her going through this difficult time.
"Thank you. The most amazing fans in the world are WWE fans," Lilian said. "Thank you for the outpouring of love, well wishes and the support."
