Britain's Prince Philip dies at age 99
DMX DEAD AT 50
4/9/2021 9:27 AM PT
DMX has died -- a week after suffering an overdose ... TMZ has learned.
TMZ broke the story ... X had virtually no brain function after he was deprived of oxygen for nearly 30 minutes following his OD. Brain function never returned, and by Thursday his organs began failing while he remained on life support in a New York hospital.
Many people in X's family were at the hospital over the last week, including his mom, fiancee and many of his kids.
A rep for his family tells TMZ, "We are deeply saddened to announce today that our loved one, DMX, birth name of Earl Simmons, passed away at 50-years-old at White Plains Hospital with his family by his side after being placed on life support for the past few days. Earl was a warrior who fought till the very end."
WTF! I was just a moment ago looking at something on Youtube (old BB footage) which had her in it.Former Big Brother Contestant Nikki Grahame
She had been 'battling anorexia' for some time.
I seem to recall that her favourite phrase was 'oh my God', which she said a LOT.
I'm pretty sure that a lot of it was her schtick though and she played up to that image.
I remember she had her own series for a little while and when she didn't have other people to bounce off she seemed much more 'normal'.
Yeah, she was an eccentric in a way that reality TV loves. I think we know now that eccentricity can often mean some serious problems, which has made me more of a RTV sceptic than I was when I was watching BB. It's very troubling.
If she was from the upper classes she'd just be classed as eccentric. The way RTV molds vulnerable people is pretty shocking and when that is withdrawn you get the crash.
I always thought that when RTV became a thing it was like the Roman games.
Yes, me and all - just last week, watching clips of the season with her and Pete in because Pete was my favourite ever contestant.WTF! I was just a moment ago looking at something on Youtube (old BB footage) which had her in it.
A bit sad, she was still young.
Saw this fabulous picture of her as Education Minister, this morning:Baroness Shirley Williams dies.
originally a Labour MP she became disillusioned and was one of the gang of 4 who formed the SDP, later to become a Liberal Peer.
A great Lady of Parliament who earned respect throughout both houses.
