Reality star, Daisy Lewellyn, best known as star of Bravo’s “Blood, Sweat & Heels” and former editor at Essence magazine has died. She died yesterday morning April 8th after a long battle with liver cancer. She was only 36 years old.
Daisy was diagnosed two years ago with stage three cancer of the bile ducts, a very rare form of liver cancer, which she shared with fans last season on the show.
She later told entertainer website Madame Noire about the illness, saying…
“It was kind of shocking. But also when I was diagnosed, I remember some of my immediate thoughts being like, ‘Well, you know what? I’m not afraid to die. It wasn’t like I wanted to die and it wasn’t like I didn’t want to live because I absolutely love my life and I’ve always loved my life, but they told me it was stage three cancer. I was like, ‘Well, if it’s my time to go, I’m okay with it.’”
Before landing at Bravo, she was an editor for various magazines including Essence, InStyle and Glamour. She also wrote a book in 2010 titled “Never Pay Retail Again: Shop Smart, Spend Less, & Look Your Best Ever.”
