Blood, Sweat & Heels star Daisy Lewellyn has died, Bravo confirms to Us Weekly. The TV personality lost her battle with a rare form of liver cancer at age 36 on Friday, April 8.
“We are devastated to learn that Daisy Lewellyn from Bravo’s Blood, Sweat & Heels has passed away this morning after a battle with a rare form of cancer,” Bravo tells Us in a statement. “Daisy passed on in peace and filled with joy, surrounded by her family and friends. We are all saddened to lose this wonderful woman. Our thoughts and deepest sympathy is expressed.”
Before making her mark on reality television, the New York City-based Lewellyn made a name for herself in the fashion industry. She was an accomplished magazine editor, having held positions at Essence, Glamour and InStyle, served as a style expert and published her own book in 2010, titled Never Pay Retail Again: Shop Smart, Spend Less & Look Your Best Ever.
In a March 2015 interview with Madame Noire, the mutli-hyphenate candidly spoke about being diagnosed with stage III cancer in her bile ducts at age 34.
“It was kind of shocking. 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.’”
Several of Lewellyn’s Blood, Sweat & Heels costars have taken to social media to pay their respects.
“I literally dreamed of her last nite… perhaps it was as she was saying goodbye to all of us. The shock is wearing off and full blown grief is setting in. I cannot believe Daisy is gone,” Melyssa Ford wrote alongside a touching Instagram post. “My heart breaks for her family. Her light and spirit will be sorely missed. ❤🙏”
