Marcil Mourns Loss of Reality Show Contestant Jamey Giddens December 20, 2008 General Hospital and Lipstick Jungle star Vanessa Marcil spoke out toTV Guide.com's Matt Mitovich about the sudden passing of Todd Homme, one of the contestants on her Lifetime reality competition Blush: The Search for the Next Great Make-up Artist. Homme, who was 23, died Dec. 13 in his home of yet-to-be-determined causes, Mitovich reports. Marcil shared she was "totally floored" by Homme's death. The interesting thing is that I, for some reason, had this huge connection with Todd — which of course now is really sad. But something about him was just really kind and beautiful and open."
