VH1's Ahmad 'Real' Givens Dead at 33

Real Dead

After a lengthy battle with colon cancer, VH1 staple Ahmad Givens (aka “Real”) has died, TMZ reports.

The reality star passed away Friday, hours after experiencing blurred vision and difficulty speaking during a family visit.

Originally diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer in 2013, Givens’ prospects improved following his initial surgery, but he was forced to begin chemotherapy upon the cancer’s return.

Givens rose to prominence in 2007 as a contestant on VH1’s I Love New York, which he parlayed into a spinoff titled Real Chance of Love, co-starring his brother Kamal “Chance” Givens, a fellow New York competitor. He also appeared on VH1’s I Love Money in 2008.

    Real loved life and lived it to the fullest. He was never afraid to follow his heart no matter the consequence. I can remember when he proposed to hoops on the show. He enjoyed the small moments in life. People can take a real lesson from him.

    Kolejnym ważnym podatkiem, szczególnie jeśli będziemy

  18. Oh no! Terribly sad news. His genuineness came across very clearly on his shows. You could see he had feelings and he made sure he respected and held precious others’ feelings as well.
    He touched many lives in a positive way, and after all is said and done, that is a wonderful thing.
    Condolences to his family and friends.

    Its a shame that almost a year ago Ahmad paased away from colon cancer. It shows just how serious getting a colonoscopy is for men. My heart goes out to everyone in his family and his circle of friends!!
