*Larsa Pippen took to social media last week to announce her COVID-19 diagnosis, but she later deleted the post.
“I’ve been battling Covid for a week,” she captioned a photo of her legs, PEOPLE reports. “It’s no joke I’ve never felt pain like this!”
Larsa’s COVID claim comes days after she made headlines for revealing she used to hook up with Tristan Thompson prior to his relationship with Khloé Kardashian in 2016.
“I was kinda seeing Tristan before Khloé. Before Khloé or any of them knew he existed,” said Larsa during an interview on the Hollywood Raw podcast. The former “Real Housewives of Miami” star is estranged from husband, NBA icon Scottie Pippen, who filed for divorce two years ago. “I was seeing him, I had him come to L.A., I brought him to a party Kim [Kardashian] had. I introduced him to all of them.”
Pippen says days after she took Thompson as her date to a Kasdashian party, he began pursuing Khloé.
“Then a week later, or 10 days later, he started seeing Khloé,” she explained.
“Which is fine, I don’t even care. It’s whatever. I’m the type of person that doesn’t chase what’s not for me. I will never chase a man; I will never put a leash on a man. I don’t do that. I feel like, let you be great. If you want to be with other people, go ahead. I’m great by myself,” Pippen added.
She also adamantly denies having sex with Thompson after he began dating Khloé.
“No! But it’s funny how people think it,” she said. “I’m the most honest person in the world. Trust me, I would never lie about something like that.”
“It’s hurtful people think that I hooked up and trying to ruin Khloé’s life,” she added. “I would never do that. That’s not even my personality.”
Pippen has been friends with Kim and Kourtney Kardashian for years, but months after they unfollowed each other on Instagram, she blamed Kanye West as the reason for her issues with the family.
“If Kanye feels like him and Kim are better without me, then let them be without me. I’m OK with that. … I will survive,” Pippen said of the rapper and his wife. “I want everyone to be happy!”
According to Pippen, West encouraged Kim to curb her friendship with Larsa.

Alabama Woman Raising 12 Kids After Her Sister Dies of COVID-19
*An Alabama woman is raising 12 kids after her sister and brother-in-law died a month apart from COVID-19.
Francesca McCall says following the loss of her younger sister Chantale and her brother-in-law Rance Martin, she took in Chantale’s children who ranged between the ages of 2 to 17. She already has seven of her own kids, which brought the total number of children living under one roof to 12.
“We have all the boys in one room and we have all the girls in the other two rooms, so everybody’s kind of just on top of one another,” McCall said, as reported by CNN. “So we’ve been making the best out of the situation.”

McCall’s sister worked for a home health agency and always took precautions.
“She wore the mask, she kept her distance, she did the proper hand washing and all the proper things she was supposed to do,” McCall said. Her sister was first hospitalized for COVID back in September and her condition worsened.
Chantale, who had bronchitis and asthma, died about two weeks after she was first hospitalized on Sept. 16. Her husband died on Oct. 25.
“They’re doing OK at times and at times they break down, so they’re having their days and their moments,” McCall said about her nieces and nephews, who are reportedly going to school remotely. “It’s been very hard losing their friends, church family and basically everything that’s held dear to them.”
Carla McDonald, McCall’s friend from church, created a GoFundMe campaign to help with the family’s expenses.
“She loves these children with all of [her] heart,” McDonald said. “She is not the one to ask for assistance from anyone. She is just trying to raise 12 children and meet their everyday needs not only for Christmas.”

California Governor Gavin Newsom Announces ‘Regional’ Stay-At-Home Order [VIDEO]
*California Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new regional stay-at-home order on Thursday, and it comes as the state’s COVID cases surge.
As reported by Daily Mail, a record 9,702 people are currently hospitalized across the state, with 2,147 in intensive care, leaving the state with fewer than 1,800 available beds.
Newsome’s stay-at-home order will apply to any of California’s five regions when intensive care unit capacity drops below 15 percent, which none currently meet that threshold.
Our ICUs are climbing quickly toward their capacity. Our death rate is rising.
To slow the surge of #COVID19 and save lives, CA is introducing a Regional Stay-At-Home Order.
Regions where ICU capacity⁰fall below 15% will be placed into this Stay-at-Home Order ⁰for 3 weeks.
— Gavin Newsom (@GavinNewsom) December 3, 2020
Here’s more from MSN:
That certainly includes Los Angeles County, which had only 122 such beds left as of Wednesday; Imperial County, which had only 2 ICU beds available on Thursday; and counties in the state’s Central Valley.
Retail will still be allowed, but at max 20% capacity. Bars, wineries, personal service businesses, hair salons and barbershops are to be closed. Schools with waivers can stay open, along with “critical infrastructure.” Restaurants will be limited to takeout and delivery service only.
“This is the final surge in this pandemic,” said Newsom during a press conference. “We do not anticipate having to do this again.” The governor also noted the state has not yet seen an increase in COVID cases related to Thanksgiving holiday/travel.
California reported 18,951 new cases on Thursday, the same day the state had only 1,731 out of 7,662 ICU beds available, according to the report.
On Wednesday, 20,759 new cases had been reported over a 24-hour period.
