Billiards champion Jeanette “The Black Widow” Lee diagnosed with terminal cancer












I don’t know how many of you have ever watched or followed pool/billiards, but Jeanette Lee is a pretty well renowned champion in the game. And shes smoking hot as well. I would catch pool sometimes late at night when she was the featured competitor and she always drew a lot of attention.

Story says she has stage 4 ovarian cancer and has about a year to live. She has three kids. Very sad story.

Amazing player, ESPN would show her a lot.


On the bright side, she is a millionaire who is smoking hot at her age. So she probably got to do whatever she wanted and lived a life better than most. Still sad, but i'm sure there's people who lived to be 80 who never did 20% of what she did.

Same with TSN in Canada. They used to show a lot of billiards so I've seen her play a number of times. Sad news.

Oh no! A former girlfriend and I used to shoot league pool and watched her on TV many times back in the 90s. Such a shame.

Yes, and not nearly enough, these days. I used to love watching snooker tournaments.

Sad news, though. What an awful diagnosis.

The most memorable pool player I’ve seen on TV. Sorry to hear the news,

Re: Billiards champion Jeanette “The Black Widow” Lee diagnosed with terminal cancer

Very sad to hear. I've always enjoyed watching her play, but the biggest memory I have of her is actually seeing her and another female pro pool player (can't remember her name) on The Price is Right many years ago. The woman whose name I can't remember, but at the time I still recognized as being a pro player, was the contestant on the show, and I kept wondering the whole time if she was who I thought she was. At the end, she ended up winning the Showcase Showdown, and Jeanette came up on stage to help her celebrate. Since I recognized Jeanette, I then knew for sure who the other woman was. I remembered thinking it odd that someone who, at least for her sport, was pretty well known, would be a contestant on a game show.

Is billiards even shown on tv anymore? I used to enjoy watching on ESPN.
