AceShowbiz - Apple Watts is slowly "coming back" after a car accident that left her seriously injured. Her sister Dominique has given a positive update on the reality TV star's recovery, more than two months after she got into the terrifying crash with a diesel truck.
Sharing the good news to The Shade Room on Thursday, June 16, Dominique said Apple is alert and speaking. "She's coming back every day, she remembers me and my mom, she remembers family members that visit. Now she's starting to ask what happened to her car, her apartment, she talks to her kids every day," said Dominique.
Apple, however, does have a trachea which can sometimes make it hard to understand what she is saying. She is now waiting to get transferred to California from Las Vegas, but she cannot be transferred if she has restraints. Her sister said that doctors want to remove the trachea, and make sure she can swallow and eat on her own before they transfer her.
Apple has so far undergone a plastic surgery to help repair her right arm. She also had surgery on her spine, which is currently healing along with her neck and fracture.
Apple got into the fiery car accident on March 23. The season 5 star of "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" was traveling Northbound on her way from Los Angeles to Las Vegas when her black Mercedes and a Ford F250 pickup truck collided. Her car reportedly burst into flames after flipping over multiple times.
Police said that one of the passengers from the Ford pickup truck pulled Apple out of her burning car. She was then air-lifted to University Medical Center in Las Vegas. She suffered a fractured skull, a broken spine and a shattered arm. As the result of her injuries, Apple will have to learn how to walk and eat again.
