Pray For Her! Rickey Smiley Reveals That His 19-Year-Old Daughter Was Shot Three Times During The Holiday Weekend

Rickey Smiley reveals that his youngest daughter, Aaryn Smiley was shot this past weekend (July 5) while en route to a Whataburger in Houston.


The New York Post reported that more than 100 Black people were shot in major cities. Rickey Smiley’s daughter, unfortunately, became one of many victims of this bloody holiday week.



“I wasn’t going to even say anything,” Smiley says, “but I’ve been sitting up here all morning with butterflies in my stomach trying to do a show.” He continued, “my youngest daughter was shot last night.”


After his co-hosts expressed their emotions of shock and concern, Smiley shared that Aaryn is fine. He explained that she was shot three times while on her way to the popular Burger spot and she will soon undergo surgery.


“I’m just so angry right now,” Smiley confesses, “ I’m just trying to do the show and book a flight to Houston.” The comedian was trying to book a flight and couldn’t, due to limited routes. But he will fly into Dallas and make the three-hour drive to Houston for his baby girl.


We will continue to pray for a speedy recovery for Aaryn.

  1. Rickey Smiley our hearts and prayers ho out to you.
    One can only imagine what you feel right now and even though you have openly expressed your feelings of hurt, anguish, and despair its still something that you only know of by going through it as a parent.
    That being said, I am respnding to the ordeal of who were the perpetrators of this crime. We dont know because of limited access to information surrounding the shooting.
    One can only assume from a position of familiarity.
    My point is this if the shooter was Black which unfortunately I believe it was it only highlights the fact that we as Black people must expand and broaden our horizons and protest not only white cops and shootings carried out by racist whites who feel emboldened to exploit the flaws and inequities of our “justice” system but Blacks who live in a world of such deep seated self hate, that they take out their psychotic frustrations on other Black people.
    When you’re protesting protest and hold accountable every Black person that has killed a Black person in a senseless evil way.
    Protest to have them held and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law as well.
    This only makes sense to protest for balanced law enforcement.

  2. Hi, my name is Brenda and I’m very new to TX.and I am deeply sad and hurt about your Daughter. I am glad that she is doing well now. My daughter didn’t make it thru her ordeal, so I know how devastating it was for you. Continue to Pray our children because living life takes alot of Prayer. So take care and be safe, God Bless you and your family.🙏
