Abby Lee Miller Faces New Health Crisis, Asks Fans for Prayers

Abby Lee Miller is battling cancer, and receiving visits and comfort from Dance Moms alumni. Now, she’s asking for something else.

If you are one of her fans or followers, she would like your prayers.

On top of her cancer, Miller has a high fever — and her white blood cell count is worryingly low.

“It’s Friday,” Abby Lee Miller writes in the captions of her latest Instagram photo, posted on Friday, August 17.

Curiously, she follows that announcement with the words: “Yay & Pray.”

The yay is to celebrate the end of the workweek. The pray is the beginning of her request.

Miller asks fans and followers to pray that “my white blood cell count goes up and my 103 fever goes down!”

Though she’s clearly not trying to be too dramatic, she follows that up with an understatement: “Yikes!”

She paired her captions with this photo.

Clearly, the once and future Dance Moms star is trying to keep things positive — even chipper.

A 103 fever is no joke. Even a degree or two higher can lead to brain damage.

And while one normally looks for an elevated white blood cell count when a body is fighting certain types of infections, it looks like hers is too low.

Why? She doesn’t say, but we can infer that her chemotherapy and radiation treatments are taking their toll on her immune system.

Earlier this year, Miller was released from prison and sent to a halfway house. It looked like she was on track to getting her old life back.

Then, she was sent to the hospital for an emergency surgery after a fast-creeping paralysis began to spread through her body.

Doctors performed an agonizing spinal surgery on her to take care of what they believed would be just an infection.

Instead, they discovered that she has a kind of cancer — Burkitt lymphoma, which is most often found in children.

That was not what they expected, and it is definitely worse than the infection that they had expected to find.

Miller then underwent a second emergency spinal surgery to relieve pressure, even as she goes through chemo and radiation to deal with the cancer.

Burkitt is a fast-spreading cancer.

The positive side of that is that Burkitt also responds more quickly to treatment than a slow-spreading cancer might.

Burkitt lymphoma has a 90% recovery rate in children, among whom it is the most common.

That figure is said to be somewhat lower among adults, but it sounds like Miller’s odds — statistically speaking — are good.

Still, this is a frightening experience for Miller and for her loved ones and her countless fans.

Though she has been criticized for her antagonistic attitude toward children, no one wants to see her be another victim of cancer.

This fever is, we hope, just a minor speedbump on her road to making a full recovery.

If any fans of hers want to send her their prayers or well-wishes that her fever goes down and her white blood cell count goes up, we are sure that she will appreciate it.

Tim Allen Defends Roseanne Barr, Asks Very Dumb Question About Comedian’s Firing

Tim Allen just doesn’t understand.

Speaking Thursday at the Television Critics Association’s press tour, the veteran actor basically asked those in attendance was simple question:

Can’t someone just be overtly racist in public without suffering consequences in this country?!?

Allen spoke on the topic of Roseanne Barr’s firing by ABC with journalists at the aforementioned gathering, with his remarks generating both headlines and many raised eyebrows.

(Barr, of course, was let go by the network and had her revived sitcom canceled after she referred to an African-American political advisor as an “ape.”)

“I go away back with Rosie and that’s not the Rosie I know,” Allen said, expounding about his friend and her situation as follows:

“She was the most diverse and tolerant woman I’ve ever known for a long time. Whatever got in her head, isn’t the Roseanne I know.”

Allen then expressed sympathy and shock for the ways of the world, especially when it comes to supposedly funny people who dare to utter controversial statements.

“It’s a very icy time. I’m a veteran comedian for 38 years and I’ve never seen it, like Lenny Bruce said at the Purple Onion, ‘We’ve gone backwards.’ There are things you can’t say. There are things you shouldn’t say.

“Who makes up these rules? And as a stand-up comic, it’s a dangerous position to be in because I like pushing buttons. It’s unfortunate.”

Who makes up these rules?

We can answer that ridiculous inquiry, Tim.

In Roseanne’s case, ABC executies made up the so-called “rules.”

Roseanne was an employee who was fired by her employer for actions the latter deemed inappropriate and/or actions it felt no longer made her a worthwhile employee.

It’s that simple.

People get fired from their jobs everday. Roseanne is just one of those people.

Allen is one of the few outspoken Republicans in Hollywood.

In May of 2017, he said he was “stunned” by the cancelation of the sitcom on which he starred, Last Man Standing, hinting strongly that he thinks it was yanked off the air due to his Conservative views.

(It has ran for six seasons at the time and ratings had been falling for years.)

Allen also once compared life in Hollywood for a Republican to life in Nazi Germany for Jewish people.

He’s back in the news now because FOX has actually brought back Last Man Standing, hoping it finds a similarly impressive audience to the one Roseanne enjoyed before the network axed that show’s comeback.

As for Barr?

She has oscillated between being regretful for her actions and blaming others for taking them out of context.

She recently swore to Sean Hannity that she is not racist and she has received support from non-Tim Allen celebrities as well.

“Roseanne Barr is my sister in comedy and she is my universal sister and what I won’t do… is throw her away for making a mistake,” Mo’Nique told KTLA last Friday, July 27, adding at the time:

“We’ve all said and done things, baby, that we wish we could take back… but when you’re in the public eye, you can’t.

Said Barr to Fox News the day before that:

“I’ve apologized a lot. It’s been two months. I’ve apologized and explained and asked for forgiveness.”

Oh, well, if it’s been two months… nevermind then!

All automatically gets forgiven after 60 days, right?

IS SHE WORTHY OF FORGIVENESS?
