Abby Lee Miller Undergoes Emergency Surgery, Narrowly Avoids Death

As we’ve made clear on numerous occasions in the past, we don’t like Abby Lee Miller.

We think she’s a narcissistic bully.

That said, we’d like to make one thing clear:

We do not wish death on Abby Lee Miller.

Heck, we don’t wish any sort of physical harm on the former Dance Moms host at all, that’s not what we’re all about.

Therefore, we truly do send nothing but well wishes to Miller, following the news that she nearly died this week.

It’s true: Multiple outlets have confirmed that Miller underwent emergeny surgery around 1 a.m.on Tuesday due to an infection in her spine.

She is now recovering in a Marina del Ray, California hospital.

According to a rep for Dr. Hooman Melamed, Miller was actually paralyzed prior to the procedure.

She had been suffering extreme pain in her back, arms and neck and, as a result, underwent a CT scan on Monday night.

This is when the mass was discovered and Miller was taken into the operating room.

“She could have died,” Melamed tells Entertainment Tonight, adding:

“Forget paralysis – if she waited much longer she would’ve died from this. Yesterday, Abby couldn’t move her toes or hands. Now she can slightly. She is in recovery now.”


Melamed added further details in an interview with People Magazine:

“Her condition started deteriorating [over two days]. Not just her pain, but her weakness started getting worse. In the span of 24 hours, which was something that I have not seen, her condition rapidly deteriorated.

“She was completely paralyzed from the neck down.”

The surgeon explained that Miller’s blood pressure was bottoming out, hence the emergent situation.

On March 27, Miller was transferred from the FCI Victorville prison in California to a halfway house in Long Beach, following an eight-plus month stint in federal prison.

The reality star had pleaded guilty in 2016 to bankruptcy and financial fraud, admitting that she lied to the government about her assets.

She is expected to serve the remaining two months of her term at the halfway house.

Dr. Melamed does say, however, that Miller may require another surgery.

For now, though, she will stick around at the hospital for at least another night and possibly for the rest of the week.

The ex-Dance Moms choreographer underwent gastric sleeve surgery in the past and it’s conceivable that her back pain and subsequent infection was related to this procedure and/or the medication she took afterward.

In May of last year, Miller received a sentence of one year and one day in federal jail, followed by two years of supervised release for bankruptcy fraud.

She was also fined $ 40,000 and ordered to pay the $ 120,000 judgment, as well as give a DNA sample relating to her felony charge.

Back in January, she actually released a statement from behind bars, saying at the time:

Sometimes in life you make mistakes. I trusted the wrong people and didn’t pay any attention to things I should of. I’m more than sorry for the mistakes I have made.

My world flipped upside down when I had to enter prison. I did so with grace, the stories you read about me been a princess are untrue.

I have made friends with both inmates and staff, I’ve tried to better myself, participated in anything offered to me and I am a better person for this experience.

We weren’t huge fans of this self-serving nonsense.

But we’re still glad she’s alive.

We don’t wish death on a single celebrity.

Britney Spears: Exercising Herself to Death to Please Sam Asghari?

As you will see in the steamy video below, Britney Spears is keeping fit with the help of her boyfriend, Sam Asghari.

But … has she become too preoccupied with health and fitness?

A new report claims that Britney is keeping her body in perfect condition because she's afraid of losing her young, hot boyfriend.

Britney spears works out

RadarOnline reports that Britney is consumed with a fitness addiction in an effort to maintain her relationship with Sam Asghari.

The source acknowledges that Britney "looks amazing and she’s got her best body ever."

She sure does and she sure does, respectively. So … what's the problem?

"But she’s letting her obsession with diet and fitness rule her life to an unhealthy degree."

Sometimes, there can be a slippery slope between healthy habits and a destructive perseveration.

"She’s so self-conscious and can’t go five seconds without talking about cleanses or weight training."

The source continues to express concern, saying:

"Even though she looks incredible, she still Photoshops her selfies all the time."

Lots of people touch up their selfies, but it looks like this person is suggesting that it's an obsession.

"It’s as if she’s on a weird mission to constantly look picture perfect."

That also ties in with rumors that Britney got a boob job recently.

"She’s always scrutinizing her reflection in the mirror and sometimes takes 50 photos before she’ll post one to Instagram."

Is that an unhealthy preoccupation or just careful use of social media?

Britney spears is a boss

The source also claims that Britney is projecting her alleged fixation with fitness onto others.

This has reportedly taken the form of her discouraging others from partying and indulging themselves on tour.

More to the point, it sounds like some of her loved ones are concerned that she's denying herself.

"People are happy that Britney is taking care of herself, but now it’s getting in the way of her having fun."

That is a somewhat troubling report.

Sam asghari lifts weights

Is it possible that the source is jumping to conclusions, though?

Britney has always been dedicated to her personal fitness. Her body is part of her brand, and has been since she rose to fame as a teen sex symbol.

It's true that she's older than Sam Asghari, who is 24 years old.

But while he's definitely young and hot, she is not only intensely attractive, but she's Britney Freaking Spears. Despite rumors to the contrary, she has a good head on her shoulders and knows her worth.

Most people take multiple photos before choosing which picture to post on social media.

The fact that Britney posts makeup-free selfies should be enough to show that fears that she's obsessed with looking more perfect than she actually is are probably unfounded.

As for her relationship with Sam Asghari, whom she began dating about a year ago, things are looking good for the two of them.

Just last week, Britney brought Sam as her date to the GLAAD Awards.

Social media shows that the two of them share a love of fitness activities, but that doesn't mean that she's depriving herself of joy.

Playing tennis with your boyfriend isn't exactly wallowing in misery.

And neither is dancing, which is what the two of them are doing in this steamy video.

Watch and decide for yourself how Britney is faring:

Prince Toxicology Report: New Death Details Emerge

We’re coming up on the two-year anniversary of Prince passing away.

It still seems impossible to believe, but the legendary musician died at the age of 57 in April of 2016.

Music fans around the world are still mourning his demise.

We learned several weeks after Prince left us that he died of an opiod overdose.

Following a few days in the hospital due to flu-like symptoms at the time, the singer was released to his home in Minnesota that spring…

… where he was eventually found unconscious in the elevator of his famous Paisley Park mansion.

The DEA found prescription bottles in Prince’s possession shortly after his death, with information later coming out that revealed Prince was prescribed heavy doses of Oxycodone just six days before he died.

In addition to the medication found in a suitcase of the artist’s, investigators also discovered opioids in various parts of Paisley Park; and also stored in containers other than pill vials, including vitamin bottles.

Simply put, there were drugs EVERYwhere inside of Prince’s home.

And now we actually have new information about the drug that most likely, most directly led to Prince passing away.

The Associated Press has made public a toxicology report that details the levels of fentanyl flowing through the star’s body on the day he died.

According to this report, the concentration of fentanyl in Prince’s blood was 67.8 micrograms per liter.

What does this mean, exactly? Just how far above the norm is this figure?

The document notes others have died from as little as three micrograms per liter; and as high as 58.

So you don’t need to be a medical expert in order to understand that this was an extreme overdose.

However, the Associated Press did talk to a medical expert – Dr. Lewis Nelson of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School – who referred to the level of fentanyl in Prince’s blood “exceedingly high.”

This would be true even a patient in chronic pain.

Indeed, it is not believed that Prince committed suicide.

It is believed that he simply took far too much medication to deal with whatever health issues had been plaguing him at the time.

(For the record: Fentanyl is an opioid that is used as a pain medication, typically together with other medications, for anesthesia. It has a rapid onset and effects generally last less than an hour or two.

It is 50 times more powerful than heroin.)

No one has been charged in Prince’s death just yet, not the doctor(s) who prescribed the drug or anyone who may have worked for the singer who helped him obtain the medication.

Last week, the lead prosecutor in the county where Prince died said in a statement that he was reviewing law enforcement reports and would make a decision on whether to charge anyone “in the near future.”

May the artist continue to rest in peace.
