Yesterday Lisa Welchel Tweeted that her doctor informed her she has West Nile Virus
. She does not seem all that concerned about it. There was a period about a month ago when the weather got really hot here and it seemed like the mosquitoes were back in force and the stories were everywhere that I actually had a little paranoia about getting it. Lisa says that she is just tired and that it takes a year to recover. Haven't people died from it? Maybe I didn't need to freak out about it. Being tired is not such a bad thing. I could use the sleep. She didn't get the virus while shooting Survivor. With that whole Survivor thing and now West Nile Virus, I think she has the two ingredients necessary for her to get her own reality show. Either that or she can be the new Mrs. Garrett on a re-boot of Facts of Life.
