Bad Girls Club star Whitney Collings has died aged 33.
The reality star’s heartbroken mother Linda confirmed the news in a Facebook post, writing: ‘I am completely broken and will never get over this. Life is so unfair. She was kind with a big heart.’
As Linda shared a picture with her daughter on Facebook, friends and family posted messages of condolences.
According to TMZ, Collings died on Thursday morning in a hospital near her hometown of Boston, with her cause of death unknown at this point.
The medical examiner has taken Collings’s case and will determine the cause and manner of her death.
Collings was one of the stars of season three of the Oxygen reality show Bad Girls, which followed the dramatic lives of a group of self-proclaimed ‘bad girls’ living under one roof.
Nicknamed ‘the Straight Shooter’, Collings was known for being proud of being from Boston, and regularly brought up her hometown – so much so, that the show also nicknamed her Boston.
However, the then-21-year-old was removed from the house in the 12th episode after attacking one of her fellow bad girls on a trip to Cancun.
At the time she shot the show in 2008, Collings was studying biology and physics at Salem State University.
Since then, Collings moved to Florida and was working at an e-cigarettes wholesale company as of January 2019.
Amber Meade, who clashed with Collings on the show, paid tribute on Instagram, writing: ‘I’m glad we were able to move past any differences we had all those years ago. My sympathies to those that knew Whitney and are feeling the loss today!’
Her death comes just months after another Bad Girls Club star, Demitra ‘Mimi’ Roche, died aged 34.
Roche appeared on the eight series of the reality show in 2012, and was nicknamed the Miami Maverick.Credit: Original article published here.
