Did ‘Doubling Down With the Derricos’ Star Karen Derrico Have a Stroke?


Audiences have seen Karen Derrico and her family on their reality television series Doubling Down With the Derricos go through their share of ups and down on Season 2. When the new season premiered, Karen thought that she might be pregnant and later found out that she was pregnant with Baby No. 15, and unfortunately, in Episode 4, she finds out that she had yet another miscarriage.

Then Karen and her husband, Deon, found out that their 4-year-old son Diez would have to undergo surgery for his elongated skull. This was heartbreaking for Karen and Deon to hear from Diez’s doctor the procedure that would have to be performed on his son. But because the size of Diez’s head was considered low, it needed to be reshaped so that it would be able to grow the normal width. The Derricos have stayed strong through it all this season.

During filming, Karen was rushed to the hospital after she had lost all control in her right side, leaving everyone worried and wondering what was happening to her. Did she have a stroke?

While talking to his mother, GG, the father of 14 discloses that he’s seen this happen to both his brother and grandmother. He tells GG, “When the side goes, you know, weak or numb like paralysis, that’s typically a stroke. So I don’t know.”

Thankfully, Karen did not have a stroke. She had untreated muscle spasms, which led to temporary paralysis. Though she’ll need massage therapy to help in her recovery, the finale sees her leave the hospital on the mend already.
