SALT LAKE CITY — A Utah woman listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for her long fingernails has lost them in a car crash. Lee Redmond of Salt Lake City sustained serious but non-life-threatening injuries in the accident Tuesday.

Redmond's nails, which hadn't been cut since 1979, were broken in the crash. According to the Guinness Web site, her nails measured a total of more than 28 feet long in 2008, with the longest nail on her right thumb at 2 feet, 11 inches.

Salt Lake County Sheriff's Lt. Don Hutson says Redmond was ejected from an SUV in the crash and taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Redmond has been featured on TV in episodes of "Guinness Book of World Records" and "Ripley's Believe It or Not."

How does she wipe herself after she potties? I guess a lot easier now, but I mean before!!

I have decided that she wears the same outfit for a long time and just showers in it everyday to clean everything all at once so she doesn't have to keep asking for help to get dressed. She also is so tiny because she can't eat with her fingers and eating by putting her face in her plate gets tiresome. And now that she's sans nails she is going to gain A LOT of weight and she'll be changing her outfits at least 4 times a day just 'cause she can.

Does anybody else think it's strange that Joyce is talking about this lady like it's not actually her? Joyce, we all know that's you. It's okay - we accept you just as you are.
