Brittany Daniel's three year absence from Bet's "The Game" has finally been explained -- and, sadly, it's not a happy reason.
The actress tells People that in the summer of 2011, after experiencing terrible back pain, night sweats and flu-like symptoms, she was diagnosed with stage IV non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
"It happened so suddenly," she says. Soon after her diagnosis, she began chemotherapy and moved into her twin sister (and former "Sweet Valley High" co-star) Cynthia's guest house with her mom.
