'Big Brother' Star Michele Ross

Kaiser Ignored My Pain

Placed Me On Psych Hold

3/18/2014 1:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0318-michele-ross-twitter"Big Brother" season 11 star Dr. Michele Ross had a ROUGH weekend at the hospital ... she claims she got placed on a psychiatric hold after doctors ignored her desperate pleas for help.

Ross (who went by Michele Noonan on the show) tells TMZ ... she rushed herself to Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in L.A. Friday after suffering terrible pains related to her endometriosis (a uterus problem). Ross says doctors were about to discharge her without performing a laparoscopy to help diagnose the source of the pain when she told them, "I am in so much pain I want to die."

Well once doctors heard "want to die" ... Michele claims they treated it as a suicidal threat and immediately placed her on psychiatric hold. Ross claims she was locked in a room with security standing guard at the door ... until a psychiatrist came to evaluate her. 

Ross says she was finally allowed to leave Saturday ... but not until hospital staff threw away the prescription pot brownies she had.  And she says she never got the procedure she wanted.

She tells TMZ ... even though she's a neuroscientist, she gets treated like a crazy person because she has blue hair. Or as we like to call it ... Bynesism.

Ross tells us she's considering legal action. Calls to the hospital were not returned.

There's a problem here    

COME ON PEOPLE .... the bitch was on Big Brother. Do you really think she's not crazy? She was just trying to load up on oxy. She was probably going from one hospital to another with her "story."

It's ok according to her Twitter she made up for her rough weekend with 'loads of green in her bong'... maybe you know instead of partying it up you call your doctor or go to a clinic something anything to get the ball rolling on what you need to do to have this surgery done the right way ... must have had a friend loan her enough pain meds for awhile... she'll deal with the actual problem next time she is running low.

Not surprised considering its Kaiser. They do nothing but hurt people. She may be a little whack-a-doodle but with Kaiser you never can tell

A neuroscientist that is a pot smoker?


Yeah, I wouldn't want her as my doctor. Crazy, stoned, and blue hair.

I actually don't remember her at all from BB. Maybe that is why she is in the news again....to try for a better 15 minutes of fame.

She is a nut job. Just because she has a doctorate degree, dont let that fool you as to her mental state. She went nuts after big brother. Didnt handle the 15 mins of fame very well at all. Left her husband, got into porno, yada yada.

I checked her fund sites: she collected $100. In the last two months trying to raise $500. toward legal expenses. She has raised $255. in 23 days for medical expenses. Her goal is $5000. She and her husband's big campaign seems to be advocating for medical marijuana. They are both currently unemployed and basically begging the public to donate money to support them.

I dont know who this woman is, but after seeing the many comments here and how she portrays herself, she appears unstable. Good luck to her.
