Reality TV star Daisy Lewellyn, known for the hit Bravo reality series “Blood, Sweat & Heels,” died Friday morning. She was 36.

According to E! Online, Lewellyn — a well-known TV style expert and author of “Never Pay Retail Again: Shop Smart, Spend Less, & Look Your Best Ever” — had been battling a rare form of liver cancer for just over a year. She was diagnosed in February 2015. The early stages of her struggle were captured by Bravo’s cameras. The network released a statement saying they were “devastated” by her death.

“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. 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.” 

Lewellyn’s death was confirmed by Essence magazine, where she worked as an accessories editor from 2006 to 2007. Since the news broke, those who co-starred alongside her, as well as several other notable names in Hollywood, have spoken out. Geneva Thomas, a close friend and cast member, as well as Andy Cohen, Holly Robinson Peete, Tanisha Thomas and more, have expressed their deepest condolences on Twitter and Instagram.


Lewellyn first opened up about her cancer diagnosis in March 2015. She told OK! magazine (via the Daily Dish by Bravo) that she was doing press for “Blood, Sweat & Heels” when a makeup artist noticed something strange in her eyes. At the time, she chalked the “crazy green” discoloration up to her being “tired.” As it turned out, Lewellyn’s doctors later found that she had a “super rare” tumor in her bile duct. She later shared the news with her co-stars during a Season 2 episode of the series.
