Sick Brookline Teen Meets her Idol: Scotty McCreery

WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports-



NEWFANE, Vt. - A Brookline teen's dream came true this weekend when she got to meet her American Idol.

When Lexy Giallella's friends contacted the Vermont State Fair for a favor, she wasn't sure if she should believe them. "I was really shocked and excited," Giallella said.
   
That's because her friends had a surprise sure to hit all the right notes. Fourteen year old Lexy was going to meet her dream man -- headline fair performer and American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery.
   
"And then we went back stage and I got to go in the front of the line so I got to butt everyone which was amazing. I felt like a movie star," she said.

And when crowd surfers jumped in front of Lexy's front row seat -- blocking her view -- fair officials gave her an even better spot, up close and personal with her big crush.
"Then they took me onto the stage and like I was just standing there the whole concert. I was like speechless but I was like singing and stuff and it was a really good experience," she said.

As family and friends gathered at the Newfane Firehouse for a send off, Lexy has an even bigger experience on Monday morning. She's having surgery to remove tumors on her liver and lungs.

"Tomorrow is our day from hell," said Lexy's mom, Charity Clark.

"There's a less than one percent chance that it's not cancer. We're hoping for a miracle, but we don't know for a fact," Lexy said.

Just last week Lexy was an apparently healthy 14 year old girl, worried about hunting season and starting school. A simple pain in her stomach last Saturday changed everything.

"You go through every single emotion that you can ever go through," said her mom. "But today we are positive and we're going to beat it."
   
Lexy's mom says doctors are hopeful they'll be able to remove all of her tumors in a long day of surgery on Monday, but depending on the results, she will need to undergo chemotherapy in the coming months.

"My biggest fear is losing my hair. I don't want to lose my hair at all, but I don't know. And chemo doesn't make you want to eat and I love eating," Lexy said.

But her mom is just glad her teen got a one night reprieve from the reminder that in the span of a week, her life was turned upside down. "And Scotty McCcreery, you know, that's her man, so he boosted her last night, she said.

And as a final boost, Lexy sends balloons covered in well wishes off to the heavens in hopes of some help in the long road to recovery.

  5. Blake's fans are starting to vote for his album on TOC. It used to be Scotty leading with a big mark. Yesterday it was 75%, now it is down to 65% and Blake went from 7% to 24% and Lady is not moving.

    Let us vote everyday, using our smart phones and computers.

    BTW, did you see his last tweet ? *****@Yoo_GabaGaba cracks me up.. hahah*****
    He likes her a lot but he is just biding his time to pursue his courtship. He is too smart to spoil all this success coming his way. Remember this is just an opinion.

    1. These kids have known each other all their lives, grew up together, went up through school together, etc. - his close friends even before AI & all this music biz stuff now - most "stars/celebrities" do not "share" their friends & simply because their friends do not like being in the public eye - nowadays with technology, Twitter & all, that's kinda hard to do - I have to admire that he shares a bit of his life with his loyal fans - I am not reading anything into this simply because I know what it's like to be a teenager & have a group of close friends to hang out with anytime - I love that he has such good friendships around him - And I will add that friends I grew up with are the best because we all can just be ourselves around each other - it's "home" -

    2. I don't think he's "courting" her - if anything, she probably made all the moves - Scotty's shy & he has said that since all the celebrity after AI, he likes to stick with the friends who were his friends before the fame - important thing is that he is happy in his life & getting to spend time with real friends

    3. 6:16 Gotta disagree on her making all the moves...that's what I like about her is that she appears to have some sense of appropriateness. And Scotty did say if the right girl came alone he wouldn't object to saying HELLO..It wasn't those words, but he indicated he'd make the move. I like Gabi as she seems so polite and not in ur face type girl. Also remember, the TTWG's producer told Scotty to go pick his leading lady and he picked Gabi. Also bet he asked her to Prom. I know he's on shy side, but I think he's got it in him to go for what he wants...look at AI audition. I don't think he would like girl that made "ALL" the moves. I don't really know of course, I just read things she tweets and stuff and like to think she is more lady-like than "some" But I agree with u impt thing is that he's happy and if Gabi makes him happy then she's got my vote. Some are telling us not to talk about this, but I'm a big girl and will make my own calls.

  6. I notice in a previous post some of Scottys fans are worried about why he has no tour dates after Christmas . I looked up 10 top artist and none has any tour dates after Christmas announced so I think its normal to keep it user thier hat.

  7. We should hear something about Scotty's 2013 early tour later this month. I know George Strait is also announcing his tour later his month. I am so keeping my fingers crossed that Scotty will tour with George. Probably just a coincidence but I sure can hope

  8. mom4smom, Maybe it's better to keep that opinion to yourself. Don't jump the gun. I wouldn't say anything, just wait till he lets us know. He likes all his friends and their humor. From things read she seems to be a charecter. They all seem to be jokers. Even if he is dating, theymay be just trying to see if it works. When I was growing up I had a lot of 'boy' friends and I did a lot with them, even with my brother. BTW he always said 'I love you baby.' And my other brother says "Love you darlin". That's how people talk down south. And all my family are big on hugs. That's why I never thought much about the comments on AI. Just let him tell us when he wants if they are a pair. I'm not saying they are or not. Vote GAC and make it week 10 fir Scotty. G-ma Dodie

    1. 9:22 Why don't u decide what u keep to your self and let others decide what and when they speak. I can't believe how u speak to your equals here. No one is seeking advice here at least not on this subject.

    2. You know if people post something and someone disagrees its also their right to say so freedom goes both ways . You just can't go around making all kind of statements then expect people not to comment back .

  9. All teen ager's get crushes .have firat loves,and play the field,and date.He could fall in and out of love a dozen of times ,and there is nothing wrong with that.to me a courtship is when you are serious ,about a relationship,and want to pursue one person ,in hopes of having a future together.He is so young ,and didn't even have time to get his feet wet.I love it when he says Yea baby,it a slang term to spice up his act on stage and the girls love it we don't want him to be a stick in the mud ,he's not doing a thing wrong it's cool ,and he is one little hottie,andthe girls love him

  10. Scotty said in a letter to Ashley for her 21st birthday that he found someone to love him for who he is as a person. He didn't mention names. I feel that not only is Ga-Bi a close friend she is his "girl", at least for now. Why not? She is down to earth, funny and very likable. A perfect match with Scotty. Enough comments from her friends and Scotty's tells me she is special. Remember, by Scotty's own admission, prior to AI, he felt like a "chick repeller". Imagine how thrilled he must secretly feel that all the girlfans are ga-ga over him now. However, he is intelligent enough to know that he doesn't want to be liked or loved because he sings. He wants a simply girl that will love him, for him. At the same time, he IS still a teenager and a little behind in the dating field. Therefore, it is not written in stone that Ga-Bi is "THE ONE". Let him have his fun. He is only young once, like all the rest of us. Chill

  11. I have written (online) to WCAX in Vermont to ask about Lexy Clark from Brookline. I asked if they had a follow-up story on her post surgery. We will see if they answer. Please continue to pray for her fast recovery. Kait,Or

  12. That letter was proven to be a story someone wrote, There are people who role play and will write all kinds of false info. So don't beleive everything you read especially on other sites. Scotty would never have posted such a personal letter if it was real. Lots of kids date different people, not always a serious thing. They have been friends and maybe they like going out together, If it is true he will reveal it when he is ready, People are so anxious for him to find that special person so early in life. It may be the real thing but I will wait for Scotty to let us know. I wish people wouldn't say they are the perfect match since you don't know her. It's as bas as those who aid that about someone else, perfect match, never find anyon else like her, they sould marry etc. Just foolishness.

  13. I am also curious to know how Lexy is doing - This post is about her - That was really so nice of her friends to get her a m&g with Scotty just before her surgery - I hope she does get well because the post surgery treatments are long and can be difficult especially for someone her age -

    1. There was also that other fan a few months ago who was also seriously ill (I think she passed away shortly after?) - and her family had given Scotty a purple baller band that her family and friends had worn throughout her ordeal to support her - and they asked Scotty if he would wear it - and he did! - He was wearing it at his concert performance (which was sometime after his senior prom) - and some fans who where obviously not in the know immediately started saying that he was wearing someone's favorite color or something - If they only knew the story behind that baller band! -

      So, this post is about another fan, Lexy, and I just wish we could focus the discussion on her and pray for her -
