Bell's Palsy is a type of facial paralysis that stems from damage to a facial nerve.

It is typically temporary and it results in weakness/drooping of one's facial muscles, usually concentrated on one side, as is the case with Wilson.

It's unclear how the mother of two, 44, contracted the disorder, but she thinks she has found something that helps: Acupuncture.

Tweeted Wilson prior to this diagnosis: "I'm having such challenges right now - I'm praying for peace, health , order and serenity. Love everyone's tweets back to me. Luv u allxxxx."

We send Carnie our very best.

Poor Carnie. This happened to a family member of mine for two weeks. The left side of his faced drooped and he could not move it. He had problems eating because he could not close his mouth and problems sleeping b/c he could not close him eye. It was awful! The good news is that is does go away on it's own! He never had it again, and hopefully Carnie won't either. The doctors couldn't say what cursed it, but it has nothing to do with wrinkles or plastic surgery. Really wish Abe would just stfu and go away already.
