'Naked & Afraid' Star
Catches Dengue Fever in Panama Jungle
Nearly Bleeds to Death
12/7/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A female survival expert who appeared on "Naked & Afraid" is currently recovering from DENGUE FEVER -- and nearly died -- after contracting the virus in a Panama jungle, TMZ has learned.
45-year-old Manu Toigo was bit by a mosquito back in September, while filming her episode (which airs this weekend on the Discovery Channel).
At first, Manu says she didn't think twice about the bug bite ... until she arrived back in L.A. days later and began to experience a severe headache between the eyes. The headache progressed to a fever, then nosebleeds and gum bleeding, then she couldn't even stand up.
Doctors initially told Manu she was anemic, but things only got worse -- and she was forced to go back to the hospital, where they finally diagnosed her with dengue hemorrhagic fever ... the worst form of dengue fever.
FYI, Dengue fever becomes "hemorrhagic" when the virus damages blood vessels to the point they hemmorhage internally. And the worst part -- there's no cure.
Manu says she got to the hospital just in time, and doctors kept a close eye on her -- pumping her with fluids and plasma -- so she was able to make a decent recovery. Manu spent a total of 2 weeks in the hospital and is now in physical therapy, trying to get back on her feet. She says she's still in agonizing pain all over her body.
But if you're wondering if she regrets going on the show ... Manu says, "Hell no ... most epic experience I could ever have done."
Paris Hilton's Brother:
Lindsay Lohan's Thug BEAT MY FACE IN
12/6/2013 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
(New information bolded)
Paris Hilton's little brother Barron Hilton was jumped this morning -- and beaten to a pulp -- and he claims Lindsay Lohan masterminded the attack, TMZ has learned.
We know Lindsay's denying she ordered the hit -- in fact, she claims she wasn't even on the scene at the time of the incident -- but now we have video (above) that proves otherwise. It shows Barron (blonde hair, white shirt) and his friends confronting LiLo right after the attack.
Multiple sources connected to the situation tell us ... Barron attended a party last night at a Miami mansion where Lindsay has been staying while she's in town for an art festival -- a party that lasted until well after the sun came up.
We're told ... during the party, someone accused Barron of talking smack about Lindsay -- and a short time later he was attacked and beaten to a pulp. TMZ obtained a photo of the damage.
We know ... 24-year-old Barron spoke with police following the incident. He claims Lohan orchestrated the beating.
Barron told cops Lindsay approached him at the party with a male friend and began screaming, "'You talk sh*t about me to my boyfriend, this is what you get."
As the guy proceeded to pummel Barron, Hilton claims Lindsay was laughing and egging him on.
Cops were called to the scene and interviewed Barron. We're told Barron doesn't know the identity of his attacker but is adamant Lindsay is the person behind the attack.
We spoke to Michael Lohan who insists Lindsay had nothing to do with the attack and had left the mansion BEFORE the fight went down.
Michael claims there are several witnesses -- including security guards -- who will back up Lindsay's alibi.
Michael says Lindsay was adamant she didn't want to be around any trouble ... i.e. drugs, alcohol, violence ... and even had people removed from the house before the fight ever went down.
Problem with that alibi is -- the video of Barron nearly face-to-face with Lilo outside the mansion ... just moments after the fight.
Lindsay's had bad blood with the Hiltons for years -- stemming back to when Paris' friend Brandon Davis went on the infamous "firecrotch" rant back in 2006.
