Reality Becomes All To Real for Blood, Sweat & Tears' Daisy Lewellyn

Reality TV became all too real on Season 2 of “Blood, Sweat & Heels” when cast member Daisy Lewellyn revealed to her cast mates and Bravo viewers that she was battling Stage 3 bile duct cancer.

“I did not want any of my clients or any of the shows that I was on to know,” says Lewellyn dubbed the “Queen of Effortless Chic”. “I felt like it would hinder them from seeing me as Daisy and while I appreciate people being compassionate, I know what I am able to do and don’t need anybody else to define that for me.”
