Howie Mandel told a story of how his wife suffered a bloody fall in Las Vegas.

"We partied. It was too much. She was tipsy. I did not know that, and in the middle of the night she got up, and I don't know where she was headed, but she headed into the wall. She fell and hit the wainscoting," the America's Got Talent judge, 68, shared. "She hit that as she went down. She slipped, went down, hit that on her eye, fell on the floor, and broke her cheek."

Howie woke up and turned on the light to find his spouse "face down" on the floor.

"I didn’t know she cut her head. Blood is pooling," the Deal or No Deal host recalled. "Blood is pooling out and I freaked out. I picked her up, I put her on the bed. There’s blood everywhere. I saw her head, and you could actually see her skull. It opened up. I freaked."

The dad-of-three called down to the hotel staff, who were shocked at the scene and swiftly called an ambulance.

Howie showed a photo of Terry with some of her injuries but noted she had no lingering side effects as she healed.

"She is absolutely perfect. There's not a scar," he said. "She's beautiful."

Even better, his spouse has a good sense of humor about the accident, as he revealed that when people asked her what happened, she simply told them, "Vegas."

The spouses have been there for each other through thick and thin, with Howie revealing last year that it was Terry's persistence that led to him getting help for his OCD.

"I'd have my children and my wife spray everything down and not touch things," he recalled of being a germaphobe. "I wouldn't take things that they were handed. I would remove some of their toys that I saw touch the ground. I was making their life miserable."

Terry grew so frustrated with his behavior that she "gave me an ultimatum," he admitted. "She goes, 'I can't do this anymore, and I can't have the children do it anymore. And if you don't get help, that's it.'"

"So it was an ultimatum that made me ultimately go to therapy, and I got diagnosed," Howie continued. "I was embarrassed that I had this problem, and when you have a mental health problem, there is a stigma."
