Parker Posey Is Diseased! Pulls Out Of Play

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesParker Posey

Oh no!

Parker Posey has stepped away from the lead role in the off-Broadway play This after being diagnosed with Lyme Disease.

The illness is a treatable tick-borne disease, which can cause severe and chronic symptoms if left untreated.

We're glad she was diagnosed early, but where would she come in contact with a tick?

All those years with Ryan Adams, perhaps?!

Take care of yourself, bb!

    Lyme disease is pretty common in the Northeast. Ticks are rampant in the Hamptons.



  2. 2

    Ummm maybe she has a dog? Duh

    Lyme disease is pretty common EVERY WHERE. I live in Atlanta. I was diagnosed with lyme over the summer. I don't play outside. Know the symptoms and take precautions to avoid tick bites. Seriously!!!

    When she had her picture posted on this site?

    The bitch about lyme disease (speaking from experience) is that doctors, especially in the south, don't take it seriously claiming that there are no "confirmed" cases of it in the south. Someone very close to me has been dealing with it for quite a while and had to go to another state to get treatment. And Gato is another confirmation of it being in the south. Doctors need to accept it and learn more about it–do some effing studies and figure it out-or we could use tax dollars for another Michael Jackson sized memorial….hmm. wtf!

    I hope Ryan Adam beats your ass, one more boom boom bow coming up

    Neneh Cherry almost died from the disease years ago. It comes from deer usually if you live near a large wooded area…

    LOVE me so Parker Posey!

    I love me some Parker Posey!! Get well!!

    Where would she come in contact with a tick? That is pure dumbass-ness!
    I could walk into my backyard and come in contact with one. She could have been anywhere–hiking, walking in a wooded park, etc….



  11. 11

    You can get ticks in a lot of places, dumbass….ever been in a forest? On a hike in the hills? Oh wait…sorry, "hiking" probably isn't your thing since it involves activity.

    Re: Snuggies keep me snug and happy – He does get activity opening and closing the fridge

    You can get ticks just by walking in the park, Perez! Another good reason to avoid fresh air! LOL! They are especially plentiful where there are woodland creatures .



  14. 14

    Shut up, Perez. Ryan Adams is a god….i love you, but I can't have you dissing Ryan.
    Love Parker Posey, too. Get well!

    What a stupid headline! Calling her diseased? She doesn't have Syphillis or Gonnorhea Numbnuts.



  16. 16

    She has a house up in Columbia County NY, which has the most cases of Lyme disease in the country

    There is this thing called Nature, and ticks live there. The disease is awful, don't make fun of it.



  18. 18

    she's beautiful.

    Porkez, ignorant piece of shit!
    STFU, it seems that the only dumb ass who doesn't know about anything is YOU!
    Lyme d. is common.
    PENDEJO

    Lyme Disease is nothing to make fun of.
    Best wishes, Parker, for a fast recovery.
    Ignore Perez's sister .. she's still learning how to be as mean as her brother

    You can come in contact with ticks if you have pets or even live in the country. I used to live in a very rural area of MO and it is possible for you to not feel them crawling on you. I've had one latch itself on the back of my neck. they are nasty and vile bugs and I hated sharing my blood with them.



  22. 22

    She just did the audbiobooks for the book series ghostgirl! I got the first one and it is AWESOME. LOVE HER



  23. 23

    Lyme Disease is serious and shouldn't be joked about.



  24. 24

    if you left LA a little more often, you might hear of ticks too, perez



  25. 25

    Lyme Disease is horrible and degenerative if left undiagnosed. I am happy Parker was diagnosed early, I only wish I could say the same for my father.
    Did you know, it is illegal for doctors to diagnose Lyme disease in Canada unless they physically SEE the tick on your skin?
    Half the time, people who are bitten don't even realize they have been bitten.

    Treatable? Really? Treat the symptoms, maybe - I don't think you can be "cured."



  27. 27

    OH NO! I LOVE Parker Posey…I hope she gets well…SOON!!!!! She may have gotten it upstate New York…



  28. 28
