    It’s devastating to lose a sibling. I feel very sad for them. The family needs privacy and time to grieve.

    And who is she and who really cares about some reality show? It isn’t real anyway.

    Yet, he mentions his show.

    Very sad. She doied of prescription med OD.
    She had a young child, a baby . She was divorced or separated or still amrried.

    Very sad, so young.

    thing is, show business is NOT all there is in life. Not everyone can be in show business.
    Not everyone is talented enough or has what it takes or finds breaks even if they are talented.
    This notion of show business is not where it is, show business or bust.

    She would still be here had she gone to school to learn to do something . What is wrong with being a school teacher or hair stylists or postal worker.
    Realtor. Working at an airline. What is wrong with these things.

    i feel very very sad, dont know why, didnt watch the show but she seemed like a very pleasant girl, especially having a little one left behind, hope there is a father…

    Hardworking Americans and die-hard loyal fans pay good money to see Aaron and Nick in their shows. It actually shows how considerate they are if their fans to reassure themthattheir shows will go on despite the heartbreak of their sister. That’s something to be commended not criticized so pipe down.

    I’ve lost a family member. I know Nick says its cathartic for him to perform but I don’t think it’s a good idea for him to do it yet. He has a show Friday he says he is not canceling. Too soon and raw. Will be hard to get thru.

  • Torrance

    Damn y’all 25 is crazy young.
    That is sad as hell.

  • Callie

    I love the blondness in their fam.
    Angel Carter is beautiful.
    I want to see her as a blonde.

  • Martha

    Condolences to the family. It’s always tragic when a young person dies, especially when she leaves a small child behind.

    I have to say though both brothers mentioned their tours and shows in their statement, which just strikes me as distasteful at a time like this. Work should be the last thing on their minds.

  • marco m

    He wants private moments with family and yet has time to send twitter messages. really? uses it to plug his show? Vanity even when faced with death.

    So judging by that face of hers and the fact that she belongs to this family of sewer rats, I’m guessing the case of death is heroin overdose, right?

  • whatsoever

    What a great opportunity to advertise my show!!!

  • :)

    Im so sorry Aaron! We are thinking of you and your family at this time

  • plow


    I can’t believe that he is promoting his show while grieving his sister. This whole family needs intervention STAT!

    RIP Leslie
