Olivia Nova: Porn Star’s Cause of Death Revealed as Family Launches Fundraiser

On Tuesday, the world of adult film was shaken by news that up-and-coming performer Olivia Nova had passed away at the age of 20.

Nova’s body was discovered by Las Vegas police over the weekend, but news of her death did not go public until two days later, when authorities could be certain that her family had been notified.

Sadly, Nova’s is the latest in a succession of adult film actresses to pass away prematurely in recent months.

In December, well-known star August Ames took her own life after being bullied online for her allegedly homophobic views.

In the weeks prior to Ames’ death, performers Shyla Styles and Yurizan Beltran passed away due to 

Given her youth and the recent rash of deaths it’s been widely assumed that Nova’s death was related to addiction or mental illness.

Now, several sources are reporting that there was no sign of foul play, and Nova’s death does not appear to be the result of natural causes.

Not surprisingly, fans have concluded that Nova (real name Lexi Rose Forte) either took her own life or accidentally overdosed.

However, it may be quite some time toxicology results can begin to offer a more complete picture of the actress and model’s final hours.

“Test results usually take about 6-8 weeks,” an investigator involved with the case tells Radar Online.

Nova had reportedly struggled with depression throughout her life, a condition that was exacerbated in recent months by a series of personal setbacks.

In early 2017, Nova revealed on Twitter that her boyfriend had fatally overdosed on heroin (she tweeted that he’d “killed himself,” leading some fans to the conclusion that she believes he intentionally took his own life).

“Rest In Peace love…. it seems like we were cuddling in bed all day with the puppy eating pizza and watching movies yesterday. Im not ready to say goodbye to you yet….” she captioned the above photo.

The death came not long after a car crash that left Nova with serious facial injuries that left the future of her modeling career in question.

It could be months before police have any definitive answers with regard to what substances were in Nova’s body at the time of her death and what may have motivated her to ingest them.

In the meantime, her family is asking for the support of Olivia’s many fans, as they cope with the financial burden of planning a funeral and getting her affairs in order.

Olivia’s mother, Leslie Forte, has set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the cost of planning a funeral and traveling from Minnesota to Las Vegas to retrieve Olivia’s beloved dog and gather her belongings.

“We are asking that friends and loved ones of Lexi rally together to support her family during this time of need, whether it be by prayer, good vibes or a monetary donation,” the page reads.

“Leslie must now travel to Las Vegas to sort through and pack Lexi’s belongings, retrieve Lexi’s beloved dog, Rocko, and finally, bring Lexi back home to Minnesota.”

The family hopes to raise $ 8,000 to cover expenses.

Olivia had more than 20,000 Twitter followers, whom they hope will show their support for the beloved performer one final time.

We’ll have further updates on this developing story as more information becomes available.

Elizabeth Gilbert Mourns Death of Partner Rayya Elias

Elizabeth Gilbert – the author best known for the book Eat, Pray, Love – has shared a moving message on Instagram in memory of her partner, Rayya Ellis.

The 57-year old tragically passed away this week.

Along with the following photo of Ellis playing guitar, Gilbert wrote the following.

(We’ll just quote her word for word, in its entirety, out of respect.)

She was my love, my heart, my best friend, my teacher, my rebel, my angel, my protector, my challenger, my partner, my muse, my wizard, my surprise, my gift, my comet, my liberator, my rock star, my completely impossible non-cooperator, my otherworldly visitor, my spiritual portal, and my baby.

I loved you so much, Rayya. Thank you for letting me walk with you right to the edge of the river.

It has been the greatest honor of my life. I would tell you to rest in peace, but I know that you always found peace boring. May you rest in excitement.

I will always love you.

rayya

Gilbert went public with her relationship with Elias in September of 2016 … after Elias was diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer, the latter of which is an incurable disease.

The happy and sad news came a few months after Gilbert split from her husband, Jose Nunes, whom she famously wrote about in her bestselling book, Eat Pray Love.

It was the story of a woman at a crossroads in her life, who went off in search of answers.

Each chapter was divided into sections; about food, about religion and, at last, about romance.

The memoir was turned into a hit movie that starred Julia Roberts as Gilbert.

On New Year’s Day, Gilbert posted a pictre of the couple embracing in front of a fireplace.

“Happy New Year, everyone. You made it. We made it. Blessed be. #2018,” she wrote as a caption.

In June, meanwhile, Gilbert and Elias shared a “ceremony of love,” which Gilbert explained wasn’t legally binding, but which she described as “just a private celebration of what we have long known to be true: We belong to each other.”

She added this past summer:

More difficult days are to come. It doesn’t get easier from here. Her illness is grave. But our love is strong. We will walk together as far as we can go together.

After that, it all gets turned over to God. Create beauty with every day you are given.

May Elias rest in peace.

Barbara Walters: On Her Death Bed?!?

According to a new report, the end may be near for one of journalism’s most respected voices.

Barbara Walters may not have a lot of time left.

The long-time reporter and former co-host on The View has not been seen in public for about a year and a half.

The last recorded sighting of Walters took place in July of 2016, after two months after she left The View.

At 88 years old, Walters is allegedly confined to a wheelchair and almost never leaves her apartment in New York City, a friend tells Radar Online.

This isn’t stunning news for someone of her advanced age, but the insider is reportedly distressed because Walters is living such an isolated existence.

“No one is allowed access into her apartment,” this unnamed person tells Radar Online, adding:

“Friends have been trying to see Barbara since the summer, but the doormen keep turning everyone away.”

This same celebrity gossip website has claimed in the past that Walters is suffering from a touch of hearing loss and heart disease; she’s supposedly been showing signs of serious dementia for months.

This is very sad if it’s true.

In 1976, Walters became the first woman to host a national news program, doing so for ABC and earning a then-unprecedented paycheck of $ 1 million annually for her work.

From 1979 to 2004, she worked as co-host and a producer for the ABC news magazine 20/20.

She still serves as an executive producer on The View.

But Walters no longer goes into work, which is understandable for an 88-year old.

The problem here is that she doesn’t appear to be enjoying a well-earned retirement at all.

“Barbara broke her hip a few months ago, and she’s in a wheelchair now 24/7,” writes Radar, quoting its source on the story.

“She sits propped up in it in her library overlooking Central Park all day. She stares at the same page of a newspaper for hours.”

Continues the source:

“All she does is go from the bed to her wheelchair and back again.

“She hasn’t seen her beloved hairdresser or makeup artist, Lori, in over a year. Her house staff washes her hair and pulls it back in a ponytail.”

Someone close to the situation thinks Walters has Alzheimer’s Disease, Radar reports.

What does bring her joy on a daily basis?

Tuning in to watch her friends and former colleagues on The View, according to the website.

It’s unclear for how much longer she’ll be able to do this, however.

“Friends just want to say goodbye,” this source eerily says. “They simply want to see that she’s well taken care of.”

Floribama Shore Season 1 Episode 7 Recap: A Death Rocks the House

The boys and girls of the Floribama Shore cannot seem to play nice with one another, and it’s growing rather tiresome. 

When Floribama Shore Season 1 Episode 7 got underway, it was time to deal with the aftermath of the possible fight between Gus and Jeremiah. 

The lack of fight was somewhat disheartening when you consider the way MTV ramped up the excitement for the episode, but maybe it helped prove that some of the people in the house had a brain. 

Who wants to get drunk and go on reality TV to fight with people? Yes, you make a name for yourself, but it’s for all the wrong reasons. 

The housemates wanted to find out the cause of the argument, and if you watch Floribama Shore online, you will know it was Codi. 

He, however, continued to try and throw the blame on someone else and acted like he had no idea what was going on. Codi reiterated several times that the word “bet” did not escape his mouth. 

Katrina struggled to process the fact that two of the men were making bets about her, and decided it was time to call it a night. 

Drunk Codi could be likened to Single Ronnie from Jersey Shore, and it’s not a bad thing. The sheer entertainment this dude brings to the show is excellent. 

The housemates chatted about how much Codi likes to stir the pot, but they were shocked the next morning when a phone call changed everything. 

Codi’s grandfather passed away through the night, and everyone who was mad at him changed their tune. This brought out the family aspect of the shore house, and it helped us connect with these wannabes. 

Codi made his exit from the shore house, but not before the group said a prayer with him and gave him one of those awkward hugs a distant family member gives you. 

Jeremiah, who has proven to be all muscle and little brain, did something that made us change our perception of him. He urged the others to invite their families over. 

It’s incredible how such a selfless act can change things up. For Nilsa, this meant Jeremiah’s brother, Josh, was headed back to the house, and she was a little too excited about it. 

For Nilsa, her potential relationship with Josh represents the most feels she’s had for a man ever since her divorce, and while that creeps some people out, it’s kind of cute. 

“I really probably don’t want to go on this date,” Josh tells Nilsa citing the fact that she was talking about her ex, and that was enough for Nilsa to end the potential romance. 

Nilsa declared that she was headed home, but Aimee was not prepared to let her pal go home over one man. 

“You’ve know this dude for a week,” Aimee yelled. “Fuck him.”

To help Nilsa get back to being the fun-loving gal we all know she is, Aimee called up her ex and demanded he delivered two pizzas to the house. 

Before long, she even said: “I’m gonna shit on your porch, bitch!”

Yes, we have no idea where these people get it, but they’re hilarious.

Carrie Fisher: Mourned, Remembed One Year After Death

It’s been one year since Hollywood was shaken to its core by the most tragic of news:

Carrie Fisher had passed away.

The beloved actress had fallen unconscious a couple days prior to Christmas after suffering a heart attack and finally succumbed to the after-effects on December 28, 2017.

Exactly 365 days ago today.

Immediately following her death, tributes and words of mourning poured forth from all who knew the legendary actress well.

And even from those who were just familiar with her work, such was the profound impact Fisher had on so many individuals.

Now, on the anniversary of her death, two of the most important people in Carrie’s life have spoken out once again.

First, her daughter, Billie Lourd.

“My momby had an otherworldly obsession with the northern lights, but I never got to see them with her,” Lourd wrote on social media on Wednesday.

She added:

“We journeyed to northern Norway to see if we might ‘see the heavens lift up her dark skirts and flash her dazzling privates across [our] unworthy irises.’ And she did.”

In a beautiful and simple conclusion, the young actress wrote:

“I love you times infinity.”

“In just an hour, the post reached close to 50,000 Likes, with many users expressing their love and support in the Comments section.

Then there was Mark Hamill.

The actor, who co-starred in a number of Star Wars films with Fisher and who had a special bond with the late star, took to Twitter this afternoon and wrote the following:

“No one’s ever really gone…”

He penned this caption along with the hashtags “#AlwaysWithUs” and “#CarrieOnForever” and a photo of the stars together.

This photo was itself alongside a drawing of Fisher and her beloved dog, Gary, which is … well… totally awesome.

See for yourself:

As many movie fans also know, director Rian Johnson recently paid tribute himself to Fisher in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Shortly after the credits, a dedication appears onscreen that reads: “In Loving Memory of Our Princess, Carrie Fisher.”

“I want to dedicate tonight to Carrie, who is up there right now flipping me the bird, saying, ‘Damn it, Rian, don’t you dare make this night a solemn tribute,'” the director joked at the film’s premiere earlier this month, adding simply:

“So let’s all have a blast tonight for Carrie.”

The veteran star’s cause of death was eventually revealed to be from sleep apnea and “other undetermined factors.”

May she continue to rest in peace.
