  1. This article illustrates the worthlessness of a Stanford diploma. Anybody with enough cash can buy one.

    1. Ridiculous statement. Standford remains a very good and top tier University. Yes, it has some of the leftwing nutty professors problem, but it retains a solid core of educational quality.

  2. “Reality star” is not only a joke, it’s an oxymoron. People are getting numb to the trashy scum and how they off themselves or get help doing it … nobody cares any more.

  3. She was a drug addict, without a husband, and comes from a rich family with a Stanford degree. She shouldn’t have gotten knocked up, she shouldn’t have been using drugs, and def NOT out on the street at 5 am.

    1. she pretty much was abusing the child in the womb by her lifestyle to.

      The only thing lost is 1 soul didn’t repent, while the other gets a pass into heaven.

  4. Setting the bar pretty low as to who’s considered a “star” aren’t we? I’ve never heard of this person or the show.

  5. There can be nothing worse than losing your child.
    Except,perhaps,having to be the parent that reads the
    the comments above.
    Rest in peace.

    1. Welcome to the internet…the MECCA of freedom of speech. You want pandering in a stupid death? Go to the memorial service…oh I forgot, religious institutions are bad, well I guess this is as good as it gets for leftist bottomfeeders. Sucks for you folks.

  6. It’s sad for those who knew her… but as far as being a reality TV star? She was a producer, who also appeared on camera, on an unscripted (just so they don’t have to pay union writers) failed TV show that nobody has ever heard of. That’s not a star.

  7. “Reality STAR,” is that right? A “STAR”…? Or do you mean “star” in the sense that she was not and never would be a “star”?

  8. She’s still a human being and has a family and friends god test her soul peace to her family and friends sad such a loss a loss is a loss rip

    1. Not really, if it was such a loss they wouldnt have let her live such an empty, vapid life….and she wouldnt have ended up half naked dying on a NY SIDEWALK. The more liberal/leftist a society/city/country the WORSE the human condition is. It took me most of my life to figure this out, but no win the information age it is public domain for every man woman and child to see for themselves.

  9. Another Hollywood drug junkie. Hey…..maybe we can get her opinion on Foreign Policy and Tax Structures and such!

  10. These people are truly empty broken human beings. I have never considered myself a religious person, but I am seeing the rationale behind why people of faith have ACTUAL faith.

  11. Sad, really. Some people seem to have it all, yet they’re still not satisfied and think drugs are the answer to whatever is missing in their lives. The real truth is that a relationship with God is what’s missing.

    1. The bible teaches us Heathens (Gentiles) to be meek and subservient to the Chosen people! Just turn the other cheek, while the jew hits you again!

      Has anyone else read the Old Testament? Nothing has changed, the jews are still attacking their neighbors, killing men women and children, and stealing their land!

  12. John 8:1-11 – The story of the woman caught in adultery comes to mind when reading the comments above. I recommend reading this short story. I will say that as our society loses value in life, we lose heart to care. This young woman needed Jesus. It may not be politically correct and I’m sure haters will disagree but I can say for a fact that if this woman knew Jesus, accepted him as her savior and repented of her sins she would be alive today and would be a better person. She would most likely be an outcast in her circle of friends though. Sounds like a fair trade to me. Accept Jesus and live a fulfilling life or keep friends that push drugs and die. Too bad God is taboo.

  13. When the drug dealer says this stuff will make you really high what he really means is that it’s strong enough to kill an elephant and will send you to heaven, forever.

  14. drugs are awesome I dont know what’s wrong with all of you, the only people thst hsve something “missing from their lives are those who believe in an invisible man in the clouds forever watching all and all knowing, and he put the dinosaur bones there to test us lol read a science book and take a hit of heroin ..dare to live on the edge and not die and we’ll see who needs a God

  15. Since nobody else seems interested, the child she was carrying is most likely better off dead, since she very likely would have been born a drug addict with who knows how many birth defects. I am pro-life and I don’t wish any baby dead, and no one should ever purposely destroy the life of an innocent whether it is perfectly healthy or not, but in this case, fate may have saved that child from a wretched life, or from being stillborn. May that child’s soul be an eternal resident of Heaven.

  17. Her unborn baby would have been born addicted, learning disabled, and would have been a drain on society with no redeeming value except to breath air, just like millions and millions of other trashy sub-human verminous peoples kids. Now, if they would all just o.d. Things would improve immeasurably for those of us who support them through forced payment of taxes.

  18. She’s pregnant and doing serious drugs???? I’m sorry for the unborn child, but with a mother like that I doubt the baby had much of a chance at life. I feel no regret for the woman’s death. It’s one way we clean out the gene pool.

  19. DIEbersity bee hour screnfs!!!

    How stupid are white people to not realize DIVERSITY= THE WAR ON WHITE COUNTRIES/PEOPLE?

    Name one non-white country that needs DIEversity! The 98% joo run media is the enemy!

  20. Here we see an educated women who fell prey to drugs. Once the demon grabs you, it is difficult to shake. No one deserves to die this way.

  21. Magic Johnson’s son is a bonafide freak. People like that shouldn’t be celebrated, they should be institutionalized. It’s obvious he is the fries and burger short of the happy meal.

  22. If not for the grace of GOD so goes you and I. Praise GOD for protecting me from the wicked of this world. More wicked people per capita in California than anywhere else on the planet except Israel. What will it take for them to repent of their sins? The way things are shaping up sinners don’t have much time left. Disasters on a scale never seen before will shock the entire planet. GOD will send us a message and the Lucifer lovers that own the media will be hard pressed to explain how events are not tied to the prophecy of Revelations.

  23. The lack of compassion in so many of these posts is disturbing. The blatant disregard for a human life reflects the callousness of many hearts. Jesus said that in the “last days” that “the love of many would wax cold.” (Matthew 24:12) This post demonstrates this waxy coldness. Sad.
