    This is unfortunate, and I really hope that she didn’t catch it while on Survivor because I am rooting for her to win. A serious illness like that would have really hurt her chances out there, and I know I will be looking for signs on the show. I was talking to a coworker at DISH who thinks that it didn’t affect her performance because she just now discovered it, but she could have just thought it was something else until now. I went back and looked at last night’s episode because I still had it on my DISH Hopper. I love how its Primetime Anytime feature records everything on during primetime on the four major networks and saves it for a week at times like this. She didn’t show any signs of sickness, but they are only about half way into it. I hope that she makes a full recovery and gets another gig on TV because have really liked her on Survivor.
