Janice Dickinson collapsed after being stung by a bee. Allergic to bee stings, Janice’s medical crisis was shown live on television as she participated on Celebrity Big Brother, according to the New York Daily News.
Dickinson, now 60, earned fame as the world’s first supermodel. But Janice hasn’t halted her love of competition, and so she chose to compete on the U.K. Big Brother show. However, the reality TV show turned into too much reality for some viewers as the show revealed Dickinson getting increasingly worse in the Diary room as she appealed to the producers.
Janice’s pleas and fears all aired on Celebrity Big Brother, reported MSN.
Dickinson was captured by cameras as she expressed concern about her hand after the bee sting. She requested that a staff member find an EpiPen for her and began to get increasingly scared about her fate.
“Look, look at the color of the hands. This is turning blue. It’s going up my hand. I don’t want it to reach my heart!”
Janice began to have problems breathing and swallowing before she slipped in her chair. Dickinson seemed to experience a seizure and then collapsed onto the floor.
Big Brother producers kept the live feed going for most of Janice’s health crisis. Dickinson was treated at a hospital before going back to the show.
Although Janice has a severe bee sting allergy, Dickinson had not taken an EpiPen to the Big Brother house, reported TMZ.
Dickinson only spent a few hours at the hospital, but those who were communicating with the supermodel at the time said it was extremely dangerous.
As for the Celebrity Big Brother producers’ decision to keep the TV cameras rolling during the potentially deadly incident, a number of viewers were upset.
Janice also was recently in the news about Bill Cosby, as Dickinson alleged that he drugged and raped her, as the Inquisitr reported.
“It’s been extremely difficult for my two children and my fiancé and my friends and it has been extremely hard for me. It’s so painful,” said Janice.
Dickinson sued Cosby in May on the grounds of defamation, reported People.
Janice’s decision to sue him followed claims from his legal team that she was not telling the truth.
“The only story she gave 12 years ago to the media and in her autobiography was that she refused to sleep with Mr. Cosby and he blew her off. Documentary proof and Ms. Dickinson’s own words show that her new story about something she now claims happened back in 1982 is a fabricated lie,” said Martin Singer, the comedian’s lawyer.
However, Janice said that she talked with the ghostwriter of her autobiography about Cosby, but that the publisher was concerned about the possible legal ramifications. Dickinson’s own attorney, Lisa Bloom, also noted that the supermodel had shared her allegations with others.
After a 2005 deposition’s unsealed revelations from Cosby included his statement that he provided a Quaalude to a woman, Janice described her feelings of validation.
“It shows that he and all his people knew all along that we were telling the truth,” Dickinson declared. “I want an admission of guilt. This is not over until we get a fair judge and jury and he can go under oath and stand on trial under oath for what he did to me. He and his accomplices should have to pay for what they did.”
Janice has shown her determination to maintain her career following that revelation by participating on Celebrity Big Brother, and producers are making it worth Dickinson’s time, reported the Independent.
Janice has made £300,000, compared to reality TV and porn star Tila Tequila’s £110,000 wages. However, following Tila’s exit from the show when her social media pro-Nazi remarks were revealed, she may not earn anything.
And Dickinson’s salary doesn’t even rank as the highest. Katie Hopkins and Katie Price both made more.
