Teen Mom stars react to suicide of actress Stevie Ryan


It is with heavy hearts that we report the sad news that YouTube star, actress, comedian and Teen Mom podcast host Stevie Ryan has died from suicide at age 33.

The Los Angeles Coroner’s Office confirmed that Ryan was found dead by hanging inside her home on Saturday, July 1.

Ryan first gained notoriety with YouTube videos featuring her created persona Little Loca. Encouraged by this initial success, Ryan started doing popular impersonations of celebrities like Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian.

Her next step found her hosting the pop culture sketch series Stevie TV, followed up by a co-hosting gig on E!’s Sex With Brody.

Her affinity for, and outspoken opinions of, Teen Mom and Teen Mom 2 made her a favorite here at Starcasm. In mid-June she launched a podcast called “Teen Mom Tea” in which she gave her entertaining take on the most recent episodes of the show.

Ryan would also voice her opinion on social media about the MTV franchise as she recently went toe to toe with noted TM troll Simon Saran and even became part of the story once after sharing a private message from Jenelle Evans’ ex, Nathan Griffith.

Some of the stars from Teen Mom have taken to Twitter to share their grief:

Jenlle Evans had tweeted, “I know we pretty much hated each other but I’m sorry you had to go so soon pretty girl. ? #RIP @StevieRyan”

Ryan was open about her struggles with depression as she also co-created and co-hosted a podcast about depression called Mentally Ch(ill).

Ryan’s last tweet was on June 30 as she revealed that her grandfather had passed away, “The man of my dreams will now only be in my dreams. I’ll miss you everyday, forever. I love you my Pa,” she wrote.

On the last Mentally Ch(ill) she said she was concerned that her Pa’s passing would send her into a deeper depression.

Rest in peace Stevie. If you or anyone you know is considering suicide, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

    Man, I just started following her. I don’t have cable so I can’t watch teen mom anymore and was going to listen to her teen mom teas. ?

    • E

      Yup. Knew it.

      • DoogieHowser

        Really?! I said I literraly just started following her. I mean I am not going to be overly emotional. I have listened to two podcasts. Yeah, it’s sad and it caught me off guard but I am not going to fake being overwhelmed with emotion over it. Should I have said I barely knew she existed two weeks ago and I am distraught over this? She was a public figure who provided a consumable service. Lord forbid if someone who doesn’t even qualify as a fan mention they will miss something she did and enjoyed doing.

        Life is precious. Just because you can’t express some phucking empathy for another human being doesn’t mean others can’t.

        I don’t know this woman, didn’t follow her, wasn’t a “fan”, but that doesn’t mean I don’t think it’s tragic that someone so young felt so hopeless they gave up. Forever.

        Compassion. Find some.

          My thoughts exactly. I don’t remember even hearing about her until the thing with Simon. So sad and sorry for her family and friends.

    Sigh. When someone’s life is so empty that they are only missed for their knock off podcast and ridiculous twitter drama.

    Mark my words there won’t be a single genuine comment about missing her. Just a bunch of equally pathetic people griping about having to find another version of her dumb podcast.

    • Xty Mack

      Actually, she was an awesome, kind human who did a lot for people with mental issues. I was one that she helped tremendously. I feel sad that this is all you know about her. You missed out on a beautiful person.

        I knew Stevie from her show on VH1. I still remember how hilarious and spot on her 2007 Lindsay Lohan was. Im sorry to hear she passed.

    • kate

      what does that even mean? I’m sure she’ll be missed by her friends and family for who she was. Just like if you died you’d be missed by your friends and family. For people who don’t know her personally but liked her tv shows, podcasts, etc., they will miss her for that.

      I’m not sure what you’re trying to say in this comment, but you don’t come off well. you might want to clarify unless your intention was to come off like a rude, heartless jerk.

    What a bunch of disingenuous comments from the Teen Mom cast. My heart goes out to Stevie’s family and friends.

  • Chewy

    Because it’s all about you, Tyler.

    • Lauren

      It is all about them in their world. *eye roll*

      Obnoxious grub that he is!!

  • Xty Mack

    You will be missed, Stevie. Not for teen mom ;), but for how you were so caring and loving to everyone who knew you.

  • kate

    Very sad that she was in so much pain that she felt the only way out was death. instead of judging her, stop and think about that. I’m glad she’s now at peace.

  • BooBooBaby

    Omg! I can’t believe this!

    Just like a week ago or so Stevie was getting Stalked, Harrassed, Put down, and treated awful by Simon (Farrah Abrahams Nasty on again off again boyfriend) Twitter! He put down Stevie’s looks too.

    I hope Simon feels bad…..but…I doubt it!

    God Bless Stevie Ryan’s Family and Friends! +

    God Bless Stevie’s Soul…may she rest in peace! +
