Viewers of Little Women: LA know that this cast of ladies has been through the wringer in terms of health challenges and surgeries over the years. But last year, what should have been a straightforward (albeit high risk) spinal cord surgery turned into a protracted nightmare for Christy McGinity Gibel when her surgeon nicked her artery and, according to the reality star, “misled her despite worsening symptoms.”
Now Christy is suing a handful of doctors from the Beverly Hills 90210 Surgery Medical Center. She is also naming Cedars Sinai and a select group of other private practices in the suit.
The reality stars have been out and about a lot over the past few days already! We have an all new reality star sighting roundup for you tonight! Above: former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville attended the 12th Annual Denim, Diamonds And Stars at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village.
Little Women: LA viewers have been watching Todd Gibel battle with obesity and other health issues, as wife Christy McGinty tried to get him help for the past few seasons. Todd underwent weight loss surgery almost three months ago and is now feeling very inspired by the fast results. He shared in a new post-vacation photo that he’s amazed at the way the pounds are falling off – even while on vacation!
Todd and Christy just returned from a getaway together and Todd shared his excitement over the scale. “What’s better than vacation? Going on vacation and coming home weighing less than you did when you left!”
He shares that he’s down over 60 pounds already in less than three months since his weight loss surgery! “Two and a half months since surgery and I’m down almost 70lbs! Plus I’ve added muscle and most importantly I’m doing things I would have only watched on TV before my surgery.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
But wonder no more! Later yesterday, People Magazine revealed that 4-season cast mate and producer of LWLA, Terra Jole, was the other main party involved. According to a source on the scene, Christy and Terra (among others) went to the bar to whoop it up with a little line dancing, but ultimately “got into a screaming match,” which led to a physical altercation.
Today I was just thinking about how I hope season 4 of Little Women: LA (premiering January 27 on Lifetime) pans out to be a kinder, gentler season than last year’s. Alas, this troubling news item popped up today and crushed those dreams in one fell swoop.
TMZ is reporting that 4-season LWLA cast member, Christy McGinity Gibel was hospitalized with a brain injury after being attacked by two cast mates over the weekend. What the WHAT!? Which cast mates injured Christy is anyone’s guess at this point, and I will refrain from conjecture…for now. But whoever it was did some major damage, apparently, as Christy left the brawl with not one, but TWO brain contusions.
