Daisy Lewellyn Dead

Daisy Lewellyn, Star of Bravo Reality Series Blood, Sweat & Heels, Dead at 36

Daisy Lewellyn, a former magazine editor and star of the Bravo reality series Blood, Sweat & Heels, died Friday after a multi-year battle with bile duct cancer. She was 36.

Lewellyn shared her diagnosis with the rare form of cancer during the show’s second season premiere, which aired in March 2015.

“It was kind of shocking,” she told Madame Noir that month. “But also, when I was diagnosed, I remember some of my immediate thoughts being like, ‘Well, you know what? I’m not afraid to die,'” she told the site. “It wasn’t like I wanted to die, and it wasn’t like I didn’t want to live — because I absolutely love my life, and I’ve always loved my life — but they told me it was stage three cancer. I was like, ‘Well, if it’s my time to go, I’m OK with it.'”

Prior to appearing on the show, Lewellyn had a successful career in magazines. She served as Essence‘s accessories editor from 2006 to 2007 — the magazine posted a touching tribute to the “Queen of Effortless Chic,” confirming the news of her passing — and also worked at InStyle and Glamour.

Andy Cohen, who hosted the Blood, Sweat & Heels reunions and regularly interviewed the cast, tweeted his thoughts on Lewellyn’s passing:

      I was thinking the same thing. Especially during the reunion, she made it sound like things were getting better. This is really sad. She was always so positive and I thought this would help her get through it.

  2. I didn’t see the show but it is so sad that a person that young and beautiful was lost to this $#$ing disease!!

  3. Renee C says:

    Awww Daisy! I was so hoping for a good ending to your cancer story. You were truly the brightest light of that show. Now you are shinning for the best audience a girl could ask for! RIP Daisy!

    Seriously! Those other “girlfriends” of hers should be feeling really bad/sad right now. They totally made her look like she was exaggerating her illness. Shame on them!!!!

    I had been sitting on pins and needles waiting for the shows return. Daisy’s presence will truly be missed. What a strong, smart and beautiful women she is. Her growth, srenghth and grace was evidence as she shared her journey with the world. Could not have been more graceful. Maybe the very reason God wanted her with him watching over her family and friends.

    Gone too soon!

  23. Karen Best says:

    I didn’t watch the show but I am really SO over seeing bright, talented people dying so young from various cancers. WHY can’t we find cures? Is is because the drug co. will lose billions if cures are found? What a waste of a beautiful life. Very sad.

    My heartfelt feelings for Daisy was very positive, I can see her smiling just thinking about the show. What a warm spirit she had on the show I will miss her friendly smile especially. So sad.
    It’s very rare that you hear young people say they are not afraid to die and accept their fate. That takes faith and a lot of courage.

  35. Dasey, I watch your reality show on Bravo. I loved Blood Sweat and Heels. I’m so sorry that you went through so much pain and sickness, from what I could tell you are a beautiful peace loving young lady on TV. I’m sad for your parents, to be losing their child. And I’m sad that you couldn’t get the piece here on Earth, that you so richly deserve. I hope you get the piece that you so richly deserve now that you’re no longer on Earth, RIH Young Lady. IN JESUS NAME, (AMEN :
