Can't get over this news. As a kid watching her on the challenge grow and inspire others to keep fighting and never give up she always was a great person to watch. I looked up to her as a role model and thank her so much for allowing herself to share her story with us throughout the years. Most people would shy away but not Diem; she was put on this  Earth to help others and that she did. Prayers are with her family, friends, and CT. 
This got me... "Soon after her death at 10:22 a.m. - the very same time she was bon on June 12, 1982 - the hospital's fire alarm went off." "There were strobe lights, and it was so loud - like a dance club," says Rotondi. "All of our hearts stopped. It was classic Diem. She was up there having her dance off. It could not have been more fitting. It was like, 'Yep. She did that.' "

That gave me chills. Diem in the PM Forever<3 That girl loved to dance.
http://instagram.com/p/nnqH7oAnQM/   yaaaaaasssssss hunty!!!! Girl could go! Like damn where was she at when I was at parties?! Her and I would have been the ones to dance all night non stop to EVERY song while everyone watched us trying to copy are moves and take pictures. Story of my life lmaoooo  That's why for a while now I haven't liked dancing in public because everyone would watch me which is awkward as hell because I'm that good aka I have rhythm and people can't keep up lol. But now I'm dancing at all the parties, whether alone or with a group and I'm going hard in honor of Diem! 
Does anyone know where clips of her and ct together are? I just want to remember how sweet their love for each other was. I'm sure fans prob have them made already from before but I don't know where to find them.

go on youtube and search CT and Diem. There are a ton of videos.
It makes me feel better that her family and friends got to hold her hand and say goodbye and tell funny stories. I'm happy knowing she went at peace. But this is still so hard to digest. I've been randomly crying all day long. But I'm happy she is out of pain. And you all are soooo right. Diem did not "lose". She's the biggest winner there is. She won with her courage, her tancity and her heart. 
I had no idea she was even sick again with cancer! Holy fuck. I didn't realize she collapsed during this past Challenge and got rushed back to the US. This is way too much right now. Rest easy Diem. If everybody could be 1/10th of the person you were, we'd live in an awesome world.
I remember watching the Original run of Fresh Meat in 2006, two years into my own chemo treatment, and I was instantly rooting for her and Derrick. I was and will always be a Diem fan. She definetely motivated me to be stronger and her optimistic outlook was something that was mesmerizing to watch. I can't articulate how much she impacted my life. She erased my fear of my cancer relapsing, because of how graceful and strong she was through hers. She will be missed, and I'm blessed to have known (through my TV screen) someone that portrade being a Cancer fighter so realisitically and positively and beautifully. My condolensces to her family, friends, and fans alike.

Oh my gosh!!  It has been highly publicized ..... like highly!!  I am so sorry this has hit you so shockingly.    If you go to People and search Diem Brown you can catch up on her latest battle.
 12m12 minutes ago One of my good friends lost his girlfriend to cancer today at age 32! Please keep them in your prayers.   Ugh. I cried and I prayed and I know that she is in a better place. She will suffer no more but, CT has constanly been on my mind today...that poor guy. Pray for him, her family, friends, everybody touched by that amazing, beautiful soul.   Rest easy Diem.
I really hope her friends, family, and CT can get through this difficult time.
You know. I've always been an adamant CT hater. But honestly, he's been the one on my mind the most in this tragedy. I (and I'm sure many of us) know that pain and how difficult it is. My heart aches just thinking about him right now.
Totally.  Not to take the focus off Diem but CT has to be in terrible pain.  He's already lost close family members and now he's lost the love of his life.

I think everybody that know Diem is in terrible pain right now. Just by reading all those messages from friends who are blessed to meed her and have her in their life, she was such a good person!!! I can't even image what it feels like for her family, they lost the mother and now the oldest daughter/sister and of cource for CT.  Life just doesn't balance the experience of death to all of us equally. 
I am not sure what what words to write on here but what I can say is that im very sad and that my thoughts and prayers are with her friends and family.     Diem,  You were a hero to all of us and a mighty warrior that refused to surrender until the very end. You will be missed and We will never Forget you
They just aired a segment on Diem on E! news. It will re air at 11:00pm tonight. If anyone could record it and post it here it would be nice for all of Diem's supporters to view it. It is the first story so you wont have to wait long. Alicia joined them live from Diem's apartment and said they are having a Dance Party tonight because it is what Diem would have wanted. If you tune in now, they may recover the story.

I think it's sweet that TJ Lavin changed his profile pics on twitter and instagram to pictures of Diem. Sometimes the quietest tributes can have the loudest impact.

I think the whole "MTV family" have been giving Diem a very good tribute.

I agree.  I like when some people just subtly acknowledge things like this.  Nothing really needs to be said by people like TJ.  Throw up her picture--it says absolutely everything because that's what is on your mind right now.
  AshleyMarieMTV · @AshleyMarieMTV My heart is broken. There is no worse feeling then the feeling I have right now. I woke up this morning excited to get on this plane and see D and finally get to be there for her and hug her but I'm too late. . .this can't be real.    this is heartbreaking Sad

I saw that Sad . Ashley's post have been devasting to read.  Wes also posted a short but very sweet post about Diem on instagram.  How did Diem lose her mom? Was it to cancer as well? That poor family has been through enough. I hope the Brown family can get through another horrible tragedy<3  
I'm so sadden by this terrible news : ( I really thought Diem was going to rise up and kick cancers ass for a third time, but sadly the poor girl already battled long and hard enough. The only comfort I have with her passing is that she no longer has to suffer with this terrible illness. Diem you are and will forever be an inspiration! You will never ever be forgotten and may you RIP. 
I didn't think this would hit me this hard, but it still does. It's rare to find someone who still watches The Challenge these days in my own life, I could count it on one hand. But when I posted the news on my FB feed, people were genuinely shocked. They all remembered her story (whether it was fighting cancer or falling in love with CT) from the glory days of the show. I bonded with someone at work about it as well, we couldn't believe that she was gone after beating cancer twice. I think we were sure she was going to make it. It's still hard to believe that she's actually gone, and I won't see her on a future Challenge after this next one. She has always had the will to fight and win, and while she never got to touch that Challenge trophy -- that didn't stop her from trying again. She was a fighter, one who believed in the power of positive thinking and one that you could depend on not giving up. The Challenge is still one of my favorite shows, and I'm glad along with all the drunken debauchery and backstabbing tactics, it showed beautiful souls like Diem. It's still not setting in that she's gone, it's still not settling that she could've been gone, but reading about her final days I take solace in knowing she went surrounded by her loved ones. Thank you Diem for the moments, whether you were jitter-screaming while being held thousands of feet over a canyon or fighting like a champion ascending a mountain. You were an inspiration to everyone around you, and there's no one better.
Having watched her on tv for over a decade, getting to know her, this is horrible. That's all I can say right now.
