Ami Brown: Out of the Hospital, Still in Grave Condition

We have some relatively good news, Alaskan Bush People fans:

Ami Brown is out of the hospital.

The matriarch of the family at the center of this Discovery Channel reality show, Brown was diagnosed several months ago with lung cancer.

And it’s very serious.

The disease has reached Stage 4 and the prognosis is grim. That’s the bad news here:

Even with Brown out of the hospital and free from doctor supervision for a bit, the Facebook page “Alaskan Bush People Exposed” writes that the star remains weak and frail.

“Ami update: She is not in the hospital, however chemotherapy / radiation has taken its toll on her, and she is not well enough to start filming yet,” the account wrote on Monday, adding:

“Filming has been delayed. They are still in CA except for Noah and Rhain/Ruth. They were spotted in Idaho of all places!”

ab update

In order to find Ami the best medical care possible, her husband and most of her children relocated from their famous remote enclave in Alaska to southern California, at least for a few weeks.

There’s been talk that Alaskan Bush People Season 8 will find the Browns in Colorado, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.

Not even whether or not there even will be an Alaskan Bush People Season 8.

A lot will depend on Ami, of course, who is tragically not expected to live for very much longer.

An earlier report, for example, claimed Brown was on her death bed.

But she’s still here. That has to mean something. And we’re like to remain as hopeful as Ami herself has been throughout this ordeal.

“Worrying about it only makes it worse,” Ami told People Magazine this summer of her condition, adding at the time:

“There is hope and that hope is having faith in God. You can’t give up. I tell people be happy. Just be happy. It’s a choice.

“Things can be hard and you just want to curl up but you have to shine.”

What an admirable attitude, right?

It’s one her family members are trying to emulate, but it’s difficult under these circumstances.

“She’s the strongest person I know, so if she’s saying it hurts, it really hurts,” Billy Brown also told People several weeks back.

He continued in his interview as follows:

“She tries to hide it from everybody but four or five times a day she bends over like a baby and cries.”

We really can’t imagine what this family is going through.

Forget Season 8 of their show and forget what the future may or may not hold for them in front of the camera.

We’re simply sending our thoughts and prayers to Ami as she does battle with this awful illness. We wish her nothing but the best.


Young Dolph Shot in Hollywood; Rapper in Critical Condition

Young Dolph, a rapper from Tennessee who was the victim of a shooting in North Carolina just six months ago, was involved in a scuffle outside the Loews Hollywood Hotel last night.

According to The Los Angeles Times, one of the men beefing with Young Dolph took out a gun and shot the artist multiple times.

The incident took place along Hollywood Boulevard and prompted police officers and paramedics to swarm this busy tourist area.

Los Angeles Police Officer Mike Lopez tells the aforementioned newspaper that Young Dolph was actually shot several times while he lay on the ground.

He had fallen during the argument and that was one the shooter took action.

Despite being wounded, the rapper managed to stand up and run into Shoe Palace, near the famous TCL Chinese Theatre, while two of the men also involved in the fracas ran away.

The third individual jumped into a gold Cadillac Escalade and drove it to a gas station next door.

He then hopped out and ran, leaving this vehicle behind.

Police have searched the SUV and come away empty-handed: no weapons were discovered inside and it remains unclear just who owns it.

Detectives are apparently investigating whether the shooting was related to a rivalry with another artist.

Back in February, Young Dolph – whose real name is Adolph Thornton Jr. – was in an SUV in Charlotte, North Carolina when the car came under gunfire.

Three people were arrested in May in connection with this shooting.

The rapper survived that incident, of course, and authorities say he was placed in critical condition following the latest shooting… but is expected to survive this one as well.


One man was detained for questioning on Tuesday morning, but it’s unknown at this time whether he was one of the three involved in the fight.

Younh Dolph released an album in April titled, “Bulletproof,” which was a reference to the shooting in Charlotte.

It ranked number-36 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.

He was scheduled to perform at the Marke in South Los Angeles on Thursday before traveling to Georgia to open for hip-hop star 2 Chainz next week. 

We have to assume at this point that he will not be making either of those appearances.


Ric Flair in Critical Condition, Facing “Multiple Organ Problems”

We have an update on the status of wrestling legend Ric Flair.

We just wish it were a more positive update.

As previously reported, Flair was admitted to a hospital near Atlanta last week and then placed in a medically-induced coma as his condition worsened.

He underwent significant surgery, which sources initially connected to past heart problems the former WCW and WWE champion had admitted were a result of heavy drinking over the years.

But Melinda Morris Zanoni, the CEO of Legacy Talent LLC and a close friend of Flair’s, later went on record as saying the issue was NOT heart related.

Either way, Flair came out of the procedure on Monday and has been resting under doctor’s supervision ever since.

This doesn’t mean he’s out of the woods, however.

Wendy Barlow released a statement on Facebook on Wednesday afternoon addressing her fiancee’s ongoing condition and rumors that have circulated online since news of his health surfaced.

“Just want to give an update to my friends and family as I have been unable to talk on the phone without crying and just feel shocked over events,” Barlow wrote, adding;’

“I took Ric to the hospital Friday night with severe abdominal pain. From that moment on it all seems like a nightmare … multiple organ problems.”

Barlow did not specify just what caused these organ problems.

“I want everyone to know he still needs prayers as he is still in critical condition,” she added.

“No, he did not have colon surgery… I don’t know how the media comes up with their stories.

“I have been by his side since Friday and will continue to make sure he is getting the best care possible. Thanks for all of the support and love.”

wendy statement

It’s unclear at the moment whether or not Flair is still in a coma.

He’s one of the most respected wrestlers of all time, having worked in every major organization over a career than spanned over five decades.

In total, the “Nature Boy” has held 31 championship belts.

A two-time WWE Hall-of-Famer, Flair had been in the news prior to this health scare because ESPN will air a documentary about him in November.

He spoke to reporters about the project just days before he was admitted to the hospital.

We will continue to send our thoughts to Flair’s family and hope he makes a full recovery from whatever ails him.
