Jennie Nguyen will be seen opening up about her past miscarriages and the stillbirth of her daughter during Sunday’s new episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City.
In a sneak peek of the upcoming episode, Jennie is enjoying a spa day with Meredith Marks and Lisa Barlow when she becomes understandably emotional about the losses she’s suffered after revealing her husband, Duy Tran, wants more kids.
“I just have a little issue with my marriage,” Jennie revealed to her co-stars, according to a preview shared by Bravo Insider. “I’m at a place where I don’t want anymore kids. I’m older. I tied my tubes. I have three wonderful children. But Duy [comes] to me, like, ‘I want more kids.’”
Not only is Jennie happy with three kids, including sons Atlas, 15, and Triton, 12, and daughter Karlyn, nine, she also feels she can’t handle another pregnancy. After all, she’s suffered numerous miscarriages.
“[It’s] hard, it’s emotionally draining. I had 13 pregnancies and I end up with three living kids and one stillbirth,” she shared with Meredith and Lisa. “My daughter passed away when she was 42 weeks. My second pregnancy, that’s when I had the stillbirth. We lost our baby girl [and] he went through the whole thing.”
In a confessional, Jennie revealed that because her daughter’s heart rate was dropping before birth, doctors decided to perform an emergency C-section. And, while the baby was doing well for the first hour after the birth, her heart rated dropped again and one hour later, while Jennie was sedated, her daughter sadly passed away.
“They tried to resuscitate her. They tried to bring her back. He was there the whole time,” Jennie recalled. “My husband was in the OR watching everything until he was like, ‘No, that’s it. That’s enough. Don’t do that to her anymore. It’s been 15 minutes. She’s not coming back.’”
While Jennie was sedated when all of this was happening, she learned what took place the following morning when Duy walked in and shaved his head as part of cultural respect shown during mourning.
“The only thing he said was, ‘I am very sorry that I can’t protect you.’ I knew right away that he was traumatized,” Jennie explained.
Although Jennie believes Duy is still feeling the effects of the loss, she feels he’s not comfortable opening up to her about how he’s feeling.
Either way, when it comes to having another child, Jennie said, “I can’t do it.”
“That’s where I’m feeling. It’s like, ‘You’re pushing me too far,’” she added.

After Lindsay Ell duetted with Everette on TikTok with a cover of ‘Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around,’ the artists teamed up to record a video of the song together — and we have the exclusive premiere!
Lindsay Ell and Everette (comprised of Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia) have officially teamed up to release a stunning cover of Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty’s “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around.” The trio got together in the studio to record the cover, and HollywoodLife is EXCLUSIVELY premiering the video of their collaboration. Lindsay, Brent and Anthony all play guitar while singing their vocals for the track. The video features Lindsay singing solo, as well as by the microphone with the guys for a sing-along.
This collaboration came about after the artists teamed up on TikTok. Everette released a video of themselves singing the song, asking fans to “duet with [them]” on the track, and Lindsay happily joined in. Afterward, they decided to take things a step further and actually record a full version together.
“Lindsay is a rockstar,” Everette told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “After she duetted our video on TikTok, we knew we had to take this to the next level and hit up the studio. It was an amazing moment behind the microphones getting to hear our guitars and voices together.” Lindsay added, “I’ve always been such an Everette fan. Their harmonies, their sound, it’s truly unique. When I got an opportunity to sing Stevie Nicks and Tom Petty with them, it was an absolute no brainer.”
Everette is currently on the road with Sara Evans for her Blue Christmas tour. The guys will make their Opry debut on Jan. 29, 2022, as well. Meanwhile, Lindsay recently released another collaboration when she teamed up with American Idol winner, Chayce Beckham, for the song “Can’t Do Without Me.” This year, she hosted the Canadian Country Music Awards and is hosting Canada’s Got Talent. Lindsay released her most recent album, Heart Theory, in 2020, as well.
After having a few days to process the death of her five-month-old son, Zen Cannon, Alyssa Scott took to Instagram to write a lengthy tribute to the adorable youngster.
Alyssa Scott is continuing to grieve after losing her five-month-old son, Zen Cannon, to a brain tumor. On Dec. 8, three days after Zen’s sad death, Alyssa took to Instagram to share a new video tribute to the infant, who she shares with Nick Cannon. She posted a video montage of Zen, featuring footage of him at home and in the hospital. In one clip, Alyssa’s daughter (from a previous relationship) reads to her baby brother. Another shot shows Alyssa cradling the little one on the beach, as well as in the bathtub.
Along with the videos, Alyssa also posted a heartbreaking message to share her grief. “The soreness I felt in my arm from holding you is slowly fading away,” Alyssa wrote. “It’s a painful reminder that you are no longer here. I caught myself looking in the backseat as I was driving only to see the mirror no longer reflecting your perfect face back at me. When I close a door too loudly, I hold my breath and wince knowing a soft cry will shortly folow. It doesn’t come. The silence is deafening.”
Alyssa praised Zen for battling so hard during his five months of life. “You kept me going,” she added. “It would be the middle of the night and you would smile at me. A Surge of energy would fill my body and pure joy would radiate from within me. We were a team, both determined to see it through. It feels unbearable running without you now. I can’t. And in this moment I feel myself being carried. By your sister…by God. By complete strangers encouraging me not to give up. It has been an honor and privilege being your mommy…I will love you for eternity.”
Zen was Nick’s seventh child. He shared the news of Zen’s death during an episode of his talk show on Dec. 7 after previously keeping the infant’s health issues private. Nick revealed that Zen was diagnosed with his tumor at just two months old and had previously had surgery to drain fluid from his brain. He broke down in tears as he shared the story of what happened to his youngest child.
Meanwhile, Alyssa posted several videos of Zen to her Instagram Story after Nick publicly revealed the news of his death. However, this is the first full tribute she wrote to her son on social media.
