The Missouri Woman Recounted The Shooting & Her Recovery Process On ‘The Jennifer Hudson Show’
According to PEOPLE, Angelina Wiley appeared as a recent guest on ‘The Jennifer Hudson Show’ for an episode that premiered Wednesday. During the appearance, the woman explained that she was bringing in the new year at a club with her friends. However, when they decided to leave early in the morning, they had to wait extensively for their Lyft.
During their wait, Wiley and the “group” decided to order food from a nearby truck. However, when she and one of the friends went to later check on their food, the shooting “started.”
Wiley explained to Hudson that she was struck by gunfire on her torso’s left and right sides. Additionally, Wiley said she was also hit in the “middle” of her spine and one of her legs.
“And I still have a bullet in my in me — right in my stomach,” Wiley explained while rubbing the left side of her body. “It’s the one that ruptured my bladder — the full thing [is] just right here.”
The woman explained that her recovery has not been “fun,” and she’s had “a lot of physical therapy.”
“It’s been interesting — going from being a regular 22-year-old girl and then one day you wake up, and it’s like, you can’t use the bathroom, you can’t walk, everything is so different. And it was really overwhelming,” Wiley explained. “Especially because the first few months, I’m still focused on physically recovering. It wasn’t until so many months later that I could even think about recovering my mental.”
Angelina Wiley Shares How The SKIMS Bodysuit Saved Her Life
As the interview continued, Hudson asked Wiley how she believes the SKIMS bodysuit helped save her life. Wiley explained that she thinks she “got a size too small.”
“So not only did it help with compression when I did get shot, but it completely changed where the bullet even landed in me,” Wiley continued. “…because the doctors were saying how… the bullets could have really killed me. People die from getting shot once; I got shot four times.”
Wiley explained that “so much could have gone wrong.” However, the SKIMS bodysuit “played such a huge part” in keeping her “alive.”
“Especially because the ambulance took so long to get to me, and doctors will tell you that the first thing they do is apply pressure, and I already had it on lock,” Wiley said.

Hudson then informed Wiley that she had a special surprise to unveil. The woman was then greeted with a video of Kim Kardashian. Kardashian explained to Wiley that she “loved hearing” her story and is “thinking” of Wiley as she recovers.
