Wynonna Judd on 'Larry King Live': 'I Almost Died Twice This Year' (VIDEO)

Wynonna Judd on 'Larry King Live': 'I Almost Died Twice This Year'Singer Wynonna Judd has had a tough year. But she's a survivor. And she's never been shy about discussing her personal difficulties on the air -- including her arrest for drunk driving, her struggles with her weight, her divorce, and the arrest of her ex-husband ... Wynonna has revealed a lot about herself -- always with the goal of sharing her mistakes in order to help others.

Tonight, on 'Larry King Live' (weeknights, 9PM ET on CNN), Wynonna did it again. Accompanied by her mom, Naomi Judd, Wynonna said that she had nearly died twice this year -- once during a collision with another car. " ... What do you mean, you almost died?" King asked.

Wynonna first discussed how she had near-fatal blood clots in her heart, lungs and legs. This took place after she underwent stomach surgery this past March. Then, in July, Wynonna's rental car was hit head-on by another driver. The man had fallen asleep, and the force of the crash equaled a hundred-mile-an-hour impact. Wynonna's daughter Grace and her tour manager Tammy were also in the car.

She survived, as did her daughter and manager. Wynonna thinks they lived through the crash because her manager turned the car at the last possible second -- and also because the rental car company had upgraded her to an SUV, a random decision that they made because they "loved her music."

"[It was] a "God wink," she told Larry King, referring to her miraculous survival. "You just kinda go, 'Wow.'" Wynonna didn't let either crisis interfere with her love of singing. She returned to the studio with blood clots still in her lungs. The car crash took place while she was on tour, and Wynonna Judd performed in front of an audience the very next night.

Oh, come on now, haven't we had enough of the Judd's dramas? I know them, and they are just a bunch of hypocrits, always was, always will be. I believe, and had some troopers verify this, she is the only one charged with DUI that didn't have to do the manditory 48hours in jail. Notice how soon they shut that up, Naomi (disease of the week) is one of the biggest phonies I have ever known. They are a couple of "over the top" DIVA'S. I am sick to death of them. They lord it over everyone and everyone in the music business knows them for exactly what they are. After her divorce from Arch, she had a "Yard sale" for which she charged admission, then she hid out in the house, peeking out the window. If you bought something you wanted autographed, you paid EXTRA for the autograph, and her assistant would take it to the house to get the autograph. And one thing she did that I actually hate, is, she had the vocal cords of her dogs cut so they couldn't bark and disturb her. Then she ended up giving them away because she was just too lazy to care for them, and didn't want to pay anyone else to do it for her. Some humane person she is. If I NEVER heard anything of, or by them again, it would be too soon.
Doesn't Naomi look good for a dead person? She told the world she was dying, then did a tour for a year!
Great family values. I dislike the people and companies who pander to them too, they are as sick as the Judds. And who is really going to believe that Wy nearly died twice this year? More drama. She is a really BIG healthy girl. All the books about the Judds have been works of fiction.

She had the vocal cords of her dogs cut so they couldn't bark and disturb her??? She claims to "LOVE" animals. Wish I could find the proof and send it to Oprah who did an interview where animals are "her life" my a**!!! Sickening!!!

There are many celebrities who who used exaggerated health claims to promote their careers, but none more effectively than Naomi Judd who pimped her chronic active hepatitis for years. What complete phonies. I suggest someone check Montel Williams credentials as well--anyone who looks as good as Montel and claims that he has had M.S. for 11 years and is in pain 24/7 might just be full of it also.

Wynonna is one ugly piece of crap and will say or do anything for publicity just like her mother.

In many ways Wynonna's life is like a country song. When I saw her on Oprah recently, her facial expression looked very mean. What surprised me is that she hasn't been more generous to two other young country singers, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, and that she's badmouthed both of them. Looks like she also struggles with the Green Monster.

I agree with you, John. They really think they are special to the world. I believe Winona has problems that will never be solved. And her mother is a self-admiring screwball. They inflate everything in their lives to get attention. I did, however, enjoy their old recordings.

The Judds have serious creditability problems. They over dramatize every event that happens in their life. They'll do anything to create sympathy in the public eye. Like the 1990 Farewell Tour. When Naomi Judd held a press conference. She told the world about her contacting hepatits. She made people believe she was dying to create sympathy. The Judds career was falling. So Naomi knew this would help their careers and concerts would sell out.

She did have hepatits but was not life threatening. People who worked with Naomi knew the truth. It's a well known fact. Did she ever look sick during that tour? She conned the public to believing she was dying.

The Judds are two self righteous hypocrites. They're has beens. Have to dream up another publicity stunt to revive a dead career
