Very sad news for Shayne Lamas -- the former “Bachelor” reality TV star miscarried after she was rushed to the hospital on Sunday night. It was first reported that she was in a coma, but her father told People.com she is awake, aware of what happened and distraught.
"Shayne is not in a coma. She is conscious and stable. She knows what happened to her and she is upset," Lorenzo Lamas's rep told People after reports broke that the former “Couples Therapy” star, 28, was in a coma. "She was very ill last night. The ER doctors saved her life."
Lamas and husband Nik Richie, who sought marriage counseling on the hit VH1 show in season 4, already have one child together -- Press, 2. They were expecting a second, until she reportedly collapsed in her Orange County, Calif., home and was rushed to the hospital. Doctors said she was bleeding internally.
Lamas was sent into surgery, but lost the baby. She was 16 weeks pregnant.
Her husband, Richie, infamous runs the raunchy NSFW site The Dirty. Although he didn’t directly address Lamas’ miscarriage, he told his readers he would be taking the day off.
"I'm going to take some personal days off from the blogging world. Unfortunate things happen to good people," he wrote. "I'm not the best person in the world, but I love my wife and my family. Shayne is my good person. She is my support and my smile. I found you and I never want to let you go. We will overcome."
Last month Richie said in a blog post, according to Us Weekly, that he and his wife were getting ready for another child. "Both Shayne and I are super excited for our second child," the 32-year-old co-founder of The Dirty said. "I've grown so much as a father and Shayne is an amazing mother. Together we are a great team and love each other very much."
