Beth Chapman Worries Fans After Sharing Cryptic Post

Ever since her cancer diagnosis, Beth and her husband Duane “Dog” Chapman, have been sharing regular updates about her health with their fans.

At some point the Dog the Bounty Hunter star appeared to be on the path to recovery, but unfortunately, her cancer wasn’t fully cured.

In December 2018, Beth was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for an emergency surgery to remove a mass in her throat twice the size of last time. The cancer had spread to her lungs as well.

Despite the grim prognosis and rounds of chemotherapy, Beth has remained positive and strong, occasionally sharing positive memes and wisdom with her fans on social media. However, things took a turn recently when the reality star shared a post that left many of her devoted fans worrying about her condition.  

The 51-year-old shared a heartbreaking post on Instagram that read “Watching someone you love die is an image you’ll never forget.” The photo was not accompanied by a caption, which left fans trying to guess if this post is about herself or someone else in her life. The post inspired many fans to take to the comments to share their own stories of loss.

Neither Dog nor any other member of the Chapman family have commented on Beth’s brow-raising post.

Beth has since posted more photos on her Instagram page and they’re all much more positive. Her latest post is a photo of her sleeping husband. In the caption, she wrote that while Dog tries not to show that he is worried and stressed, she can make it out from his face when he’s asleep. She added that she gets her strength from her husband, who has been by her side throughout the entire cancer ordeal.

“HE SLEEPS! When he finally does sleep you can still see the worry and stress on his face,” Beth wrote. “He has been by my side non stop since this happened strong and encouraging me every day ! There is no doubt we’re my strength comes from . Being with him is the most important thing to me .Ours is one of the greatest love story’s never told. ❤️It’s a love worth fighting 🥊 4! Ty for loving me sooo much.”

Beth and Dog’s lives took a turn in late 2017 when she received the devastating cancer diagnosis. At the time, she revealed the news to her fans in an open letter.

“I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, ‘You have cancer,'” Beth wrote.

While Beth did opt for chemotherapy the first time around, she made the decision to forgo the treatment this time around.

“Chemotherapy is not my bag people. That is not for me,” Beth said in a live stream. “For me, this is the ultimate test of faith. This is my ultimate lesson. And it’ll either be taught to you or to me.”

We’re keeping Beth in our prayers as she goes through this trying time. Cancer is an awful disease, but we’re confident Beth can beat it again.

Tyler Baltierra Posts Tribute To Daughter He Gave Up

Anyone who watched 16 & Pregnant will remember the emotional episode where Catelynn and Tyler decided to give up their daughter for adoption. The little girl, Carly, was adopted by a couple named Brandon and Teresa, who agreed to an open adoption with the young couple.

MTV

However, as Carly began to grow older, her adoptive parents requested that she not be featured on Teen Mom, or really mentioned that much at all. They also suggested that Catelynn and Tyler not come to visit for their yearly reunion, saying it wasn’t a good time. The birth parents were clearly distraught, as they had hoped to see Carly at least once a year as part of their open adoption.

MTV

“But basically, she was like, ‘Don’t make plans to come here,’” Catelynn said of Teresa’s talk with her. “Right now I guess they’re working through some things with Carly,” Lowell added, still reading from Teresa’s text message. “‘She’s at an age where she’s trying to figure out her place in life. She’s a nine-year-old girl with a different story. She just has to get confident in who she is, and we want her to be able to do that in the least confusing way possible. She just needs to mature some.’”

Some people went after Brandon and Teresa, saying it was unfair to change the terms of their adoption after nine years. However, Tyler defended the adoptive parents.

“Regardless of anyone’s opinions, Brandon & Teresa are Carly’s parents & if they decide not having a visit is what’s best for her right now, then we have to trust the parental decisions that we gave them the rights to make in the first place,” Baltierra wrote Twitter. “It’s not always easy, but necessary.”

Despite not being able to see Carly as often as they’d like, there is still an immense love that Catelynn and Tyler have for the little girl. This past week, on her 10th birthday, Tyler posted a sweet message to his biological daughter, accompanied by a picture of their daughter Nova playing with Carly.

10 years ago yesterday, we were only 17.

10 years ago, we brought you into the world. 10 years ago, we only got to hold you by ourselves for a half hour in the hospital as we just cried & stared at you, remembering every little detail of how absolutely perfect you were, since we knew that even though we just met, we had to say goodbye.

10 years ago, we had to make the hardest decision of our lives & give you everything your innocent life deserved that we just couldn’t provide at the time.

10 years ago, we held each other & wept as we watched you drive away in the back of the car with the only parents that were worthy to be yours.

10 years ago…your life changed so many others for the better & has blessed more lives than I can count. We love you so much & hopefully get to see you soon baby girl. Happy Birthday Carly! #Adoption#BirthparentStrong

Kailyn Lowry, another Teen Mom cast member, commented on the post, saying “I have the chills!!! So so proud of y’all & happy birthday to Carly! ♥️”

As for Catelynn, she didn’t post anything about Carly’s birthday on social media, but she’s been open in the past about how the decision to give up her daughter has been a trigger for her mental health issues. Plus, with a 4 year old and newborn baby at home, she’s already got a lot on her mind.

I think it’s sweet that Tyler still loves and supports Carly in such a public way, and I do feel for them that the relationship they thought they’d have with her isn’t what they’re getting.

Do you think Catelynn and Tyler should be upset that Brandon and Teresa changed the agreement?

Kendall Jenner Thinks Life Is Harder For Her Because Of Her Name

Kendall Jenner, the second-youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner klan may be the only one without kids, but she’s definitely not without opinions. Jenner, who is an international supermodel and spokesperson for Proactiv, gave an interview with Vogue Australia that opened a few eyes into the world of a superstar.

The interview addressed Jenner’s relationship with NBA player Ben Simmons, as well as how she thinks her family name has affected her path to stardom. Jenner is the only one of her siblings that is either not married or without kids, and she says it’s not necessarily in the cards for her right now. If it is, though, she has people to look up to.

“Maybe. Definitely not now, but maybe one day,” Jenner said. “I got a glimpse of how my sisters dealt with [the attention] and it’s cool to learn from that.”

Jenner has been seeing Simmons for at least a year, even though it’s been on and off. You may not have heard too much about it, or even seem them together for that matter, but that’s on purpose.

“For me, a lot of things are very special and very sacred, like my friends and relationships, and I personally think that bringing things into the public makes everything so much messier,” Jenner admitted. “I’m very young and right now I feel like relationships aren’t always super-certain and I don’t want to bring too much attention to something if you don’t really know long term [what it’s going to be].”

It’s interesting to hear Jenner’s opinion on public relationships, considering how public everything in her family’s life is, but she’s made it very clear that it’s not fair to have it all aired out in the open.

“A relationship is only meant to be between two people, and the second you make it the world’s business is when it starts messing with the two people mentally. Like once everyone is let in, you’re letting all these opinions into your relationships, and I don’t think that’s fair,” she said.

Being the last one in the family to get married can lead to a bit of pressure, but Jenner isn’t worried about self-imposing deadlines on herself. If things are meant to happen, they will, but there’s no use forcing anything.

“I feel like once you do [that], it’s just completely ingenuine, and you think that you have to be in a certain place when you don’t have to be,” she noted. “Everyone has their own path and their own way of letting the cards fall. Your 20s are for messing up and figuring it out.”

While many people assume that Jenner’s link to the Kardashian name is the reason she got where she is, the model doesn’t agree. She credits her parents for raising her right.

“I’ve always been the person to prove [critics] wrong, even when I was younger,” she said. “I’ve always been a hard worker: that’s in my blood. My parents raised me and my little sister to be that way and the rest of my sisters, too. A lot of people assumed that because I came from a ‘name’ that it was a lot easier for me to get to where I got, but actually it’s the completely opposite.”

Of course, modelling doesn’t always last forever. Even though Jenner is only 23 years old, it might make sense for her to consider a backup plan should her modelling days come to an end. To her, however, that’s not necessary.

“I don’t think I necessarily needed to have [a backup plan.] Anything I do, I always want to be 100% in it and know I want to be doing it,” she said. “Most of the time [in this business] it’s all about new faces and it happens really fast.”

According to Jenner, the industry is all about being the “it” person, which can often require a lot of work. She’s got lofty goals to be around for a while, though.

“They kind of grab onto that person and then all of a sudden you take off and you’re doing a bunch of shows and you’re getting a bunch of jobs,” she adds. “But my goal with everything is always longevity. In this industry specifically, it can be really challenging to maintain, so it’s always a work in progress.”

The interview was interesting to me, especially Jenner’s take on how her relationship is just for her and her boyfriend. That being said, I don’t agree that she’s got it harder because of her name. People will work for years to try and make it as far as Jenner has just by the time they’re 30, but for her to be walking international runways at just 23 years old, there’s no way her famous family didn’t expedite that process.

Abby Lee Miller Opens Up About Cancer Recovery

In April of 2018, Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller was hit with life-changing news. After she left prison, she was living in a halfway house with the intention of restarting her life. Instead, she ended up fighting for it.

Miller had excruciating neck pain and weakness in her arm, which lead to an emergency surgery.

“In the span of 24 hours, which was something that I have not seen, her condition rapidly deteriorated,” her doctor Hooman Melamaed of the Cedar Sinai Marina de Rey Hospital said. “She was completely paralyzed from the neck down.”

Miller was diagnosed with a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, called Burkitt lymphoma, which is known for killing its patients in a matter of weeks. However, chemotherapy and surgeries all helped Miller stay alive, even though it was a treacherous process.

“I had 52 staples perfectly aligned and now a bunch of crazy stitches are holding my neck & lumbar region together!” she wrote after one of her surgeries.

Now, after 10 rounds of chemotherapy, Miller has some big news to share.

“The cancer’s gone,” she revealed to Us. “Burkitt lymphoma’s gone. I had a PET scan, and it was cleared. Not one cell of cancer after three rounds of chemo. But I still had seven more just for safety, which was stupid. I should have just worked on therapy.”

The chemotherapy might be over, but Miller will have to do extensive rehabilitation to learn how to walk again. She believes that if an MRI would have been done sooner, that could have been prevented.

“If the ER doctor wouldn’t have said, ‘Oh, go home and take it easy for 10 days. You’ll be fine,’ then they would have actually tested me and done an MRI and looked further at the blood labs. Then they would have known there was something really dramatically wrong,” she noted. “They could have done something, and they would have started the chemo immediately and … the mass of the infection would have never gotten strong enough to choke my spinal cord, and I wouldn’t be in a wheelchair and I’d be walking.”

It’s not the first time Miller has called out her doctors, either. One the one-year anniversary of her surgery, Miller asked the doctors who ignored her to stop practicing.

One year ago today ~ I underwent emergency surgery for an infection in my spine. This mass/tumor choking my spinal cord turned out to be Burkitt Lymphoma. I endured ten rounds of chemo therapy (each lasting 6 days with 4/ 24hr bags pumping poison into my body ending with a spinal tap in 3 spots, plus another shot of Chemo into my tailbone area up the spinal cord around my brain cavity) Ten times!

Another spine surgery was needed & I have one more still to go. I struggled thru months of physical therapy to learn to sit up again, to crawl and maybe with a miracle someday I’ll walk. Why didn’t the ER Doctors on duty do their jobs? I came in twice with the same symptoms? Why didn’t somebody listen to me, the patient?

I finally found the right team that’s why I lived to tell my story, I have a lot to say! Thank you to all wonderful top notch professionals who continue to help me heal. For those who missed it, misdiagnosed me, and the so called Federal “Doctor” who took me off medication cold turkey and the other ER “Doctor Hollywood” who told me to go home and take it easy for 10 days – STOP practicing! Please 🙏🏻

Miller admitted that the cancer battle was lonely, and that at some points she didn’t care if she was going to die.

“You definitely feel alone,” she said. “My three friends were there [at the hospital but] I’m an only child, my mom and dad are both deceased and I’m not married, I don’t have siblings to lean on. That’s why, for me, if I died, it didn’t really matter. There were people who care about me, but there wasn’t anybody dependent upon me.”

Both her parents died of cancer, so Miller assumed that’s how she would go as well.

“I always thought I would die of cancer because my mom and my dad both died of cancer. My dad died of osteocancer, and my mom died of colon cancer,” she told Us. “But I just never thought it would happen this soon and this fast and this ugly.”

As for whether or not her cancer will appear again, the reality star doesn’t want to ask.

“I haven’t asked that. I would be afraid to ask that, but I don’t think it’s that kind of a cancer,” she told Us. “It’s a lymphoma, but it’s not … It’s like this weird, strange, bizarre thing that happens, and it’s gone and we need to move on.”

In true working-woman fashion Miller is ready to get back to work and back on TV.

“I feel OK,” she said. “I want to go back to the weight I was when I got out of prison. I want to get back on track and get back to my life in Los Angeles. And I want to sell these TV shows.”

Even if you didn’t like Miller on Dance Moms, you have to admire her fight against such an awful disease.
