‘Paranormal’ Star Ryan Buell Diagnosed With Pancreatic Cancer

Ryan Buell, paranormal investigator and star of A&E’s hit series Paranormal State, has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He is 30 years old.

Buell, who wrote a memoir, Paranormal State: My Journey Into the Unknown, in 2010, has been speaking out about his battle on his official fan page. And he wants to make something clear: He’s not the only one struggling with this terrible disease.

The post asks that Buell’s fans support organizations that are working to find a cure and organizations that offer support to loved ones of those with the disease, citing the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network and its taking action initiative. He shared a superhero-esque photo of himself (with the headline “Cancer: Even the Greatest of Heroes Have to Take the Fight Within … Soldier On!”).


“I know there are many of you suffering from illnesses, and not just cancer. I say to all of you: SOLDIER ON!” Buell wrote with the photo. “I know the pain that you will feel. And the pain for treatment. I still say SOLDIER ON! Let’s think of one another during those moments, even though we don’t know each other.”

Pancreatic cancer is highly lethal and claims the lives of thousands every year – Steve Jobs (who had a rare form) and Patrick Swayze were two of the most public patients to battle the disease.

‘Octomom’ Poses Nude for Magazine to Pay Bills

Financial struggles have led “Octomom” Nadya Suleman to pose semi-nude in photographs to run alongside a paid interview in a British magazine, her attorney said Tuesday.

With 14 children to care for, Suleman can’t hold down a regular job to pay bills, lawyer Jeff Czech said. In photos posted to TMZ.com and published in Britain’s Closer magazine, Suleman wears panties and little else. In an interview with TMZ’s television show, Suleman said she didn’t expect the photos to reach American readers so quickly, but she’s not ashamed of posing for the magazine.

“I’m doing what I need to do to take care of my kids,” Suleman said. Czech declined to disclose how much Suleman was paid for the photo shoot and interview.

When Suleman gave birth to octuplets in 2009, she was an unemployed single mother who already had six other children. All her children were conceived through in vitro fertility treatments. Her octuplets are the world’s longest-surviving set.


Since the birth, she has cut deals with media outlets and posed in tabloid photo spreads to earn a living. She has promoted spaying and neutering for an animal rights group and gotten beat up in a celebrity boxing match. In 2009, Suleman declined a million-dollar offer to appear in pornography. Last year, she told Oprah Winfrey she was addicted to having children and called herself stupid for her financial problems.
