Wilson Phillips singer Carnie Wilson has gone public with a disorder affecting the muscles on the left side of her face: Bell's palsy. But by Tuesday, she was already celebrating progress in recovering from the condition.
"A beautiful day to you all," Wilson said on Twitter. "My smile is 70% back!! Except when kids make me belly laugh! Lol they keep me laughing !! Luv to you all."
She'd revealed her situation on Wednesday of last week: "Just wanted you all 2 know that I have Bell's Palsy on lf side of face right now. Scary, unfortunate, but it goes away. A challenge! Love u," she tweeted.
The condition is caused when the nerve that controls the facial muscles and more becomes inflamed — often because of a virus — and is in most cases temporary, according to the Mayo Clinic.
