AMERICAN Pickers star Danielle Colby has begged fans to show her hometown some support following a massive tragedy.
The History Channel star posted a photo of a partially collapsed building in her native Davenport, Iowa, revealing that she has been left “heartbroken” for the families that lived there.

“I think of her, of my family, and how this impacts so many families in this community. Davenport, why? How?”
The American Pickers star went on: “It is unclear exactly what happened in order for this tragedy to occur, but there is accountability to be taken, and my sincerest hope is that it is.”
Her message concluded: “My hometown needs so much love.”
Danielle’s post was referencing an apartment building partial collapse that has left three still unaccounted for four days after the incident.
The collapse took place on Sunday and three men who lived in the crash zone are still missing, according to CNN.
No deaths were reported and eight people were rescued from the building within one day of the collapse.
On Monday, city officials said rescue efforts had shifted into recovery efforts.
The building was due to be demolished on Tuesday but those plans were put on hold.
Supporters flocked to the comments of Danielle’s post to send their love and other kind words.
“So unnecessary. We can’t leave affordable housing to the slumlords. We as a society need to start getting our s**t together. Give what you can, help were you can,” one wrote.
Someone else commented: “
It all about building inspections and follow through on problems found. Not enough serious accountability on the owners to remedy problems, just get a small fine, pay it and keep allowing families to live a life in preventable jeopardy!”
“That’s just terrible! This kind of tragedy is happening in too many cities all over the States,” a third fan wrote.
Someone else chimed in: “Prayers sweetie it seams like people don’t care about low income families ( my family including). I have alot of health issues and my husband works his butt off but it never seems to be enough. We get looked down at all the time.”
“Prayers,” a fifth commenter wrote simply.
Prior to her sad post, Danielle’s social media presence had been pretty upbeat.
On May 22, almost a week before the building collapse, she posted a pic of herself rocking a tiny pink string bikini while taking a dip in the ocean.
In the sexy snap, she flaunted her tattoo-covered stomach and natural figure.
The post came nearly a year after she underwent a hysterectomy in October 2022 after suffering from painful uterine fibroids.
Danielle captioned the photo: “Here’s to a beautiful week!
“I hope you get enough sleep, stay hydrated, and kick Monday right in the teeth. Cheers.”
JUST LIKE MOM
In addition to appearing on American Pickers, Danielle is a burlesque dancer.
She is extremely comfortable with her body and never shies away from showing it off.
Earlier this month, Memphis posed in a tiny pink bodysuit.
In her Instagram video, the OnlyFans model rocked animal ears on top of her head.
While slightly bouncing up and down, Memphis showed off the tattoos on her bare skin as she ate a yellow daffodil.
Danielle’s only daughter mimicked the lines from the musical comedy, School of Rock, starring Jack Black.
During the hilarious scene, Jack’s Dewey Finn told his nine-year-old band member Tomika (Maryam Hassan): “People worship me. Because I’m sexy. And chubby, man.”
Tomika asked: “Why don’t you go on a diet?”
Dewey replied: “Because I like to eat! Is that such a crime?”
The brunette model asked her followers: “What’s your favorite thing about me? And then what’s your favorite thing about yourself? Don’t disappoint me!
Memphis answered her questions: “My favorite thing about myself is my eyes and my booty! And my favorite thing about you is your heart!”
