Isabel Rock says she is lucky to be alive.
The fiancee of former Little People, Big World star has provided Instagram followers with an update on her life…
… and it’s a doozy!
“Today I got in my third car accident,” Rock wrote on social media Monday, prior to delving into further troubling detail as follows:
“Somebody pulled out to turn and went into the furthest lane instead of the lane closest to them. Of course, I tried my best to avoid them but they hit my driver door anyway and threw me into the ditch.”
Thankfully, Isabel sounds like she’s alright. Physically, at least.
“I am okay, a little sore; my car is not, but my little car potentially saved my life. My entire door ended up coming off and the car is likely totaled,” she added.
Rock and Roloff will be getting married on September 7, 2019.
They got engaged last December following many years of dating.
The two basically spend all of their time traveling around the Pacific Northwest.
They constantly share photos of themselve enjoying nature, each other and their two adorable dogs.
“It’s really hard not to wonder why these things happen to you in the moment, but part of my growth is trying to find the lesson in everything,” Rock added in her upsetting update.
Isabel, over whom Jacob is constantly gushing, also expressed gratitude for the situation.
It really could have been so much worse.
“I am grateful I was alone in my car, that I didn’t have Jacob with me orr Moose with me like I usually do,” she noted of her fiance and her dog, adding:
““I am grateful that the other person was okay. I am grateful that I’ve walked away from all my car accidents without anything more than a concussion and sore muscles.
“I am grateful that it happened close to home so that both my dad and Jacob could be at my side within minutes of the accident.”
What a great attitude, right?
Neither Rock nor Roloff appears on Little People, Big World.
The latter quit the show over a year ago, dedicating his life far less to television and far more to trying to answer some profound life questions.
He and Isabel seem like a perfect match.
“Counting my blessings today,” she concluded in her post, joking:
“Also kind of convinced the universe doesn’t want me to drive anymore because the odds are stacked against me now.”
We’re just glad Rock walked away from this frightening accident in one, perspective-filled piece.
Now, Isabel can’t help but gush about the former Little People, Big World star.
Isabel is telling fans how supportive Jacob is — and revealing how he helps her with her art.
“The man behind the resin pieces,” Isabel Rock gushed on social media alongside a glimpse of Jacob helping with her art.
“I couldn’t have done it without his help,” she admits.
Isabel explains: “If you are not familiar with resin, there are so many steps and tricks and measuring.”
“And,” she continues. “You can’t mess any of it up or you’ll ruin the entire piece.”
Isabel then announces: “Jacob always comes through!”
Isabel wasn’t done praising the love of her life.
“He really is the most helpful and supportive fiance,” she gushes.
Her post ends: “I really love him so much!”
Awww, they’re so cute.
And he has been supportive of her in other ways that do not have to do with her art.
Alongside this tender photo, Isabel recently gushed about how Jacob helped her self-image.
“When I first saw this photo,” Isabel writes. “I was horrified at how chubby my cheeks looked.”
“This beautiful picture, with all of its complexities that make it what it is,” she describes.
“And of course,” Isabel laments. “I zeroed in on the most negative thing I could find.”
“My cheeks are one of Jacob’s favorite things about me,” she reveals.
“I’ve had them since birth,” Isabel says of her cheeks. “And apparently, they’re never going away.”
She explains how Jacob’s feedback helped her to appreciate the image.
“Now, with some perspective, I see this photograph as one I will cherish for life,” Isabel writes.
“The way he is looking at me,” she admires. “That perfect Iowa sunset.”
She mentions: “The fact that there were so many deer in a meadow behind us and our dogs were in that same meadow playing ball.”
“Life is a lot like this,” Isabel notes.
A huge part of being a celebrity who posts lowkey thinkpieces to Instagram is drawing larger life lessons from individual photos.
“We tend to hone in on the negatives,” Isabel acknowledges. “It is the way we have trained our brains to work since the beginning.”
“We focus on what we don’t like, what we don’t have, what we wish were different,” Isabel explains.
Isabel continues: “Instead of looking at the whole picture and admiring it for all that it is.”
“I’d like you to join me in training our minds to see things differently,” Isabel invites her followers.
When looking at the world, she says, “we don’t have to see it negatively.”
She suggests that they join her in “Practicing gratitude, daily affirmations, changing our thought patterns,”
“All of these things,” Isabel says. “Can shift our perspective.”
She is absolutely right. Sometimes, the key to changing the way that you think is just daily practice.
Isabel points out that rejecting the natural instinct to focus on the negative can make people’s lives better.
She suggests focusing on this “so that when something bad comes along we can still find the good in it.”
“We can still find the light,” Isabel concludes.
She then follows that post with a couple of tags.
“#worldmentalhealthday,” she writes. “#ilovehimsomuch”
Jacob has been publicly supportive of Isabel’s art, but it’s great to see that he gets involved in the process.
His mother, Amy Roloff, has also shown her support by giving Isabel’s gallery showings a boost on social media.
It is heartwarming to see that Jacob also lends emotional support to Isabel when it comes to loving herself.
Heartwarming, but not surprising — they are, after all, engaged.
Julie Chen returned to CBS Thursday night, and got ready to evict two houseguests, but what did she say about Les Moonves?
Double eviction episodes of the reality series are generally the most dramatic, but the biggest source of drama came from the final few moments when the host paid a stunning tribute to her embattled husband, Les Moonves.
“I’m Julie Chen Moonves. Goodnight,” she said to audiences as the second evictee of the night sat next to her.
Julie does not typically say “Moonves” on the series, usually referring to herself simply as “Julie Chen,” so it was immediately evident it was a message of support for her husband, who was fired by the network earlier this week.
As for what went down in the world of Big Brother, let’s get to it.
Sam and Haleigh were still on the block to be evicted from the house. Everyone at home knew fine well that Haleigh was going out.
But how did the votes pan out?
Tyler votes to evict: Haleigh
JC votes to evict: Haleigh Brett votes to evict: Haleigh
Angela votes to evict: Haleigh
Haleigh was evicted!
We then moved on to the HOH competition. It was the booth-style one with the houseguests answering questions based on video clips shown to the house.
Round 1: Sam & Tyler get a point
Round 2: JC gets a point
Round 3: Tyler & Brett get a point
Round 4: JC, Sam, Tyler, & Brett get a point
Round 5: Sam, Tyler, Angela, & Brett get a point
Round 6: Everyone gets a point
Round 7: Sam, Tyler, & Angela get a point
Tyler won the HOH competition and immediately got to work to pick who he was evicting. He held one-on-one meetings and told Brett to throw the POV because he was going to make a big move.
He moved on to nominate Sam and JC for eviction. Neither was impressed, but Tyler had a much bigger plan to play.
Angela won the power of veto, and she immediately met the others one by one. Tyler told her to use the veto on JC and that he would nominate Brett to be sent home.
It’s not often a plan comes together in Big Brother, but it Angela, Tyler, and Kaycee got their wish and Brett was put on the block in JC’s place.
JC votes to evict: Brett
Kaycee votes to evict: Brett
Angela votes to evict: Brett
Brett was sent out of the door by a vote of 3-0!
He was blindsided but admitted to Julie that he respected that it was a game move. Now he has to go to the jury house and explain to Haleigh why Angela and Kaycee’s exit speeches threw him under the bus.
With less than two weeks left, Julie dished that there will be evictions on Wednesday and Thursday next week.

Jill Janus, the frontwoman for popular heavy metal band Huntress, was found dead on Tuesday, others in this group have confirmed.
She was 43 years old.
While details are still coming in regarding her passing, this is what band members wrote on Facebook last night as tragic confirmation of the news:
“It is with crushed hearts that we announce that Jill Janus – frontwoman for the California heavy metal band Huntress – passed away on Tuesday, August. 14.
“A long-time sufferer of mental illness, she took her own life outside of Portland, Oregon.”
Continued this post:
“Janus spoke publicly about these challenges in hopes of guiding others to address and overcome their mental illness.”
Huntress were formed in 2009 and released its first album, Spell Eater, in 2012.
The band went on to release a further a pair of orther records as well, while supporting and opening at times for rock bands Motörhead and Lamb of God.
Best known for the singing gig described above with Huntress, Janus also sang for a handful of female metal cover bands over the years, including The Starbreakers and Chelsea Girls.
“Beyond her accomplishments in the music world and her advocacy for mental health issues, she was a beautiful person passionate about her family, animal rescue and the world of natural medicine,” the Facebook message reads, concluding
“She will be missed more than she could have ever known.”
It is unclear at the moment just how Janus took her own life.
The artist was diagnosed with bipolar disease aged 20, telling Revolver magazine in 2015 that she struggled in high school after starting to show signs of this illness at 13 years old.
In response to this awful news, partner and Huntress member Blake Meahl paid tribute to Janus as follows yesterday:
“[We] spent 9 years together creating a home, having a family and building our passion project Huntress.
“The devastation of knowing I will never see her again is the most gutting emotion I have ever experienced. I hope you have found the peace that you couldn’t find on this planet.”
Added Lizzy Hale of Halestorm:
“I’d like to take a moment to state again how important it is to talk about mental health, and remind all of you out there battling demons that you are not alone.
I have to navigate my own dark labyrinth and I turn to music and writing for my lifeline. I want to encourage you to keep searching for Your lifeline, something that makes You happy.
To Jill, My sister of scream, I hope wherever you are you have found the peace that you couldn’t here.
My deepest sympathy’s go out to Jill’s Family and her band Huntress during this time.
