Shayne revealed in a statement today that the child she was carrying was a boy. "In loving memory of my son, Rex Jagger Lamas-Richie," and urged fans to donate blood, "To everyone out there, please donate blood. You can save a life like mine."
The formerCouples Therapy star also thanked fans for their love and support and reassured them that despite a Valentine's Day setback, she is on the path to recovery. "Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers. I've cried reading the expression of generosity and warmth from everyone," Shayneshared with Us Weekly. "I'm out of ICU at Mission Viejo Hospital. I cannot thank the medical staff here enough for not giving up on me."
The former Couples Therapy star was rushed to the hospital after she collapsed where an emergency surgery was performed to save her life.
"I'm still working from the ICU. This has been the toughest week of my life, but my love for Shayne Lamas has grown tremendously," husband Nik Richie shared of Shayne's condition. "My wife is a true fighter. Her heart gave out on Valentine's Day and we had to start the rehabilitation process all over again."
On Sunday at 7:35 pm the paramedics were called to Shayne's Orange County home after she collapsed. She was rushed to the hospital, with Nik by her side, where doctors discovered internal bleeding around her uterus and determined emergency surgery was needed to discover the cause of the bleeding.
Unfortunately during the surgery Shayne's unborn baby was lost in the process, however doctors are "optimistic about her recovery" says TMZ.
Courtney stepped out last week with producer and manager David Weintraub, just after announcing that she's working on her own reality show, as well as her singing career. She's wearing more clothes than usual and you can't see it, but she's wearing a pair of shoes that aren't her beige ones!
Most sites report that the two were on a blind date after David requested to be set up on the date with Courtney. I'm wondering if it's more of a business dinner, though. Courtney is working on several projects and David is responsible for producing the type of shows she'll wind up on. David's producer resume includes assisting with shows like Sober House, Celebrity Rehab, Sex Rehab, Living with Kimberly Stewart, and Sons of Hollywood.
David also manages (or did manage) celebrities like Danielle Staub, Shayne Lamas and husband Nik Richie, Angelina Pivarnick, Tareq Salahi and Levi Johnston. My guess is Courtney's his latest client, but maybe they're keeping it quiet for Doug's sake right now? Just a hunch.
Right from the get-go these two couples clashed with each other and expended just as much energy butting heads as they did dealing with their own marital issues.
Last night Courtney's pimpmomager KristaKeller returned and the unorthodox mother-daughter duo sat down with Dr. Jenn to discuss their relationship and the handling of Courtney's premature sexual expression.
Krista, who previously insisted she adored Doug and was thrilled Courtney married him, continued to maintain that Courtney's provocative behavior wasn't influenced by her and is just a reflection of Courtney's natural desires. Dr. Jenn wasn't buying it and neither is anyone but the clearly besotted and duped Doug.
Shayne and Nik haven't seen eye-to-eye with Doug and Courtney since day one and have openly expressed their disgust for both their marriage and Courtney's inappropriate clothing. Nik even went so far as to call Doug a child molester. And apparently the worst is yet to come!
I guess it's par for the course. If you go on a Housewives franchise, chances are people will dig up dirt on your past. Even better? If you don't have a juicy past, they'll make up some stories! Just ask Real Housewives of Miami'sJoanna Krupa. She was recently accused by The Dirty (because that's a legit site) of being a high priced call girl. As you know, the story was quickly retracted (or taken down…I doubt anyone at The Dirty knows the meaning of the word "retracted") when the supermodel threatened legal action.
So, what have we learned? The Polish beauty never accepted money in exchange for boring, rich, socially awkward men's attention. Color me shocked…not. However, the reason her name (and picture) was brought into this crazy gossip has finally come to light. It's basically the ol' bait and switch…some millionaire Madame shared Joanna's pictures on her website, and when men would request the leggy blonde, said madame would do her best to hook him up with a lookalike. That is not shady at all…said no one EVER.
