Shep Smith Sick???

Posted on 01/16/2012 4:22:32 PM PST by publius321

Shepard Smith looks like he's going down hill very quickly. Has anyone heard anything about his status? I don't mean to make light of it or wish him ill but it looks like something is going on.

I like Shep...don't watch his show very often because I'm not home at the time his show is on.

Hope he recovers from whatever ails him.

I’ve noticed that his face seems to have aged, or looks sort of tired and sunken.

When you consider that television “adds 10 pounds” then he must really look bad in person.

The stats in NYC are 50% of gay black men have or will get HIV(both kinds) while 30 young white men. Not good odds.

My mother noticed the same thing a few weeks ago. Some have speculated he has AIDS. I don’t think any official word has been released.

Yikes! Haven’t even looked at FNC in many months, but went to take a look when I saw this thread...weight loss quite apparent; sunken cheeks...that boy looks sick.

He also appears lethargic and with an almost somber countenance. Excessive exercise requires excessive energy levels which are not evident.

Can you put up maybe a trio of chronological photos of Shep, by chance? Is this just early aging, or what?

I noticed weight loss a couple months ago - figured he was dieting. Saw him last week and he had dark circles under eyes and tons of makeup trying to disguise his appearance.
He looked like a corpse.

Didn’t see him tonite.

You know, though, I gotta say....remember Al Pacino was such a heart throb, just a beautiful man when he was younger. He aged very fast also. Who seeing him today would even recognize as the take away beauty in, say, the GODFATHER movie.

No matter how bad Shep looks, he’ll still be a lot better looking than Alan Colmes...

I went to high school with him at Marshall Academy, me being three years his junior. I would ask one of his old girlfriends from my hometown if he had any health problems in the past, but sadly I dont remember him having any.

Ironically, I never watch Shep and of course never think about him, either. But today for some reason I was thinking about the tsunami in Japan, where I happened to catch some of Shep’s reporting. And, I thought, seemed like he got pretty close to the radioactive zone.

FWIW.

Personally, I cannot stand the jerk - Shimp Smith... he is a condescending liberal a-hole... But, I believe his current weight loss is due to an excessive response to competition from Fox Business News... namely Lou Dobbs... Dobbs has created a clone of his former CNN show on FBN... in the same time slot as Shimp... 7:00 EST. Dobbs is reducing Shimp’s audience share and in response Shimp Smith is over doing it in an excessive diet in an effort to look younger - BUT ... Smith does not understand who his audience is or at least WAS... What we see is Shimp Smith Worried near to Death ....

Exposure to special cancers, hepatitus (all communicable diseases), and drug use are risks of homosexual behaviors and lifestyle too. Also homosexual men suffer body image problems and that can result in all the same eating disorders usually entertained by women.

Whatever it is, I hope he is able to heal from it.

I teach in that town, public school. Have several friends I teach w/ who went to Marshall or sent/send their kids there. After one year in the district I COMPLETELY understand why parents send their kids there!

There is an all day in service tomorrow w/ a team from the delta who like telling the white teachers how we need to open our eyes & “remove the rose colored glasses.” I’m not kidding. I’m thinking there will be many people calling in “sick” tomorrow. I all ready have!

If it is AIDS, then that is regrettable BUT is was a choice he made. You reap what you sow. It is known as one of the absolute, immutable truths of eternity.

I haven’t seen him in a while, until the other day, and I thought the same thing. He looks like he is wasting away. I googled his name and the word sick and on another site someone was asking this “How come all the reporters that went to Japan in March of 2011 are becoming ill?” I’m not sure if that is true or not, but an interesting question.

Have been wondering the same; though hardly his ‘biggest fan’; thought about writing and telling him to give up ‘vegan’ or whatever he was doing; and go reclaim his cheeks. The thinner he gets; the more years he loses. He now looks ten years older; in a matter of months. Thought, too; perhaps he is actually ill; but no mention of course. No viewer of Fox News, can miss the change in Shep.

You can google for photos; recent and past. If you don't/can't watch him; hardly matters. Just know; where there were once, 'cheecks' and a fresh 'Shep face'; there are now; 'no cheecks' and a face that has lost all it's freshness.

Whatever the reason; hate to see this. Hope it is diet and that he will pull out of it; rather than any slippery slope of serious illness.

aids is so treatable npw that people with aids dont look as sick as tjey used to. OTOH eating disorder, dieting because of vanity, metavolic syndrome, et occurs. And cancer.

Interesting that you should write about this - today!

I rarely watch Shep (in fact, make it a point to not watch him) but caught sight of him yesterday and then just a bit today when he was reporting on something, I think not on his show and asked my husband to take a look at him this evening and he responded by asking me if Shep had been sick or something.

I responded that I didn't know but from observing his drawn and lined face (which I do not remember looking quite so bad) but we do know of some people who have become so thin with such low body fat that they have aged at least 20 years.

re your 2009 and last week picture of Shep... reminds me of Rock Hudson, who looked skeletal in a last TV appearance, but had always been a physically robust guy until shortly before then.

Shep has more viewers than all the other news shows in his time slot combined.

Shep = 1.686
More Slanted News By Communists (MSNBC) = 805
CNN = 376
HLN = 398

I don’t know, I didn’t even know who Shep Smith was until I did a search. Looks like Mediaite and HuffPo enjoy bitching about him, so it’s no surprise that he’s on Fox News. Thanks Dysart.

So true about Pacino. He was very fine when he was young, but seemed to develop that haggard look almost overnight.

Shep can be very annoying, but I'll never forget the day he was on when rescue crews were trying to retrieve a dog from the Los Angeles river . It was a very tense situation, as there was concern the attempts would fail and the dog wouldn't survive. All the cable news channels had extended live coverage(went on for a couple of hours)----even commercial delays. Shep didn't want to break from the dog he called "Fido", and contributed some levity for the audience's sake with his humorous comments. I have to say that did endear him to me a bit.

I've noticed his appearance in recent months, too, and I hope he is okay.
