Is Shep Smith losing weight or what? He sure looks gaunt.
that’s what the virus does, sadly.
I was thinking the same today, and watching him in hi-def just makes it worse.
You mean he’s looking like Anderson Cooper?
Affirmative. I tuned him in yesterday just before switching over to CNN for the debate. His cheeks look “sunken in” and he definitely has lost weight.
You mean he’s looking like Anderson Cooper?
I don’t watch gay newsmen.
Well, to be frank, yes.
Noticed that a few days ago.
Impacted hamsters will do that to you.
Though Shep annoys me...I sincerely hope he’s not sick. Maybe he’s changed his diet or started doing something crazy like marathon training.
I was just commenting to my husband that Shep is looking ill lately. Sunken cheeks and eyes. Much thinner.
I would imagine HIV
Uh... ‘HIV (human immunodeficiency virus)’
If he looks like that on camera, he must be scary thin in person.
I mentioned this yesterday, but nobody responded. Probably because nobody watches him. I was skimming channels and noticed. So did my husband.
He had food poisoning. He ate a bad weenie.
Definitely noticed the weight loss yesterday. Also his new hair-do. He doesn’t look healthy.
I did notice that. I hope he’s ok. I don’t approve that he may be a homosexual, that being said, he’s an entertaining newsman and I hope he’s ok.
Checked the Advocate (ugh) trying to out both Shep Smith and Anderson Cooper.
One poster noted that Shep went to Japan during the tsunami nuclear reactor meltdown and suggests perhaps he has radiation poisoning.
Does anyone have any confirmed concrete information that man is gay ? Is not, saying that he is..is just totally stupid and classless
I went to the same highschool as Shep, three years his junior (K-12 400 students). I could ask some of his local sweetheart if he had a history of illness, but I can’t remember him having any.
There’s a good chance that it’s just stress. Many people lose their appetite when they’re under stress.
I reading on a gossip site that one fellow news anchor is pissing him off. apparently the other anchor person does weekends and they don’t like each other.
I commented to my husband last week, that it seems Shep ALWAYS has a cold or congestion kind of stuff going on, based on the sound of his voice.
Stuffy head? sniffing? losing weight? Cocaine addiction perhaps? (just wondering aloud)
Im sticking with my first instinct...HIV
AIDs is one hell of a mean disease.

Well, my gaydar is pulling about a 7.5 out of a 10 on Shep........that’s good enough for me
The eyeliner sort of gives it away
That being said, I certainly hope he is not sick with skinny man disease
yes, it is noticeable and getting worse.
Starting HAART drugs (for hiv+) can do this to a person. Once their viral load drops, and they adjust to the drugs they return to “normal” as long as they stay on the drugs.
Anymore, they detect hiv so early, and the drugs are so affective in suppressing the virus, it’s not common to see the AIDs sufferers of years past.
Well, he has stated that he loves junk food such as double quarter pounders and Big Macs. Maybe he just decided to change his diet habits and is losing weight because of it.
Apparently he has his Manhattan apartment for sale, if that means anything.
Maybe he went vegan. You know how those liberals love animals.
I haven’t seen him in forever, but one of the infobabes (Megyn?) introduced him and he looked like crap. Thin and old.
I find Shep entertaining, although I haven’t seen his show recently. I hope he is not sick.
That said, gay or not gay, I hope he's just poorly and not truly "sick".
I noticed that he looked gaunt also he has been out a lot, seems like someone is always subbing for him!
Never thought of that. Could be the answer. :)
Does anyone have a recent screenshot of him looking gaunt?
Yeap, I noticed it while watching a rerun this morning. At first I thought it was his makeup, but his cheeks seemed to be shallow, eyes looked sunken in too.
The thought that crossed my mind when I saw him today was that he looks like he’s got AIDS.
I noticed that as well... hope nothing bad is going on with Shep.
Yes, I was shocked when I saw him last night..
He looks quite ill.
I have no idea - only know what others have said that it is a known fact about Shepard Smith. For his sake I hope its not true, and as I said I hope he’s not ill.
Shep was back in his NYC studio tonight, with his "regular" lighting, etc. I thought he looked fine, same as usual. Maybe they forgot to fly out Shep's hair and make-up person to St. Louis with him... ;-)
