Today's passing of Elizabeth Taylor has inspired remembrances from fans the world over, including several Bravo stars who immediately took to Twitter to pay tribute to the 79-year-old Hollywood icon.
The Real Housewives of Orange County's Vicki Gunvalson tweeted a favorite quote from Taylor: "I have never felt more alive than when I watched my children delight in something, never more alive than when I have watched a great artist perform, and never richer than when I have scored a big check to fight AIDS. Follow your passion, follow your heart, and the things you need will come."

Vicki's co-star Tamra Barney also tweeted words of wisdom from the eight-time-divorced actress: "A woman has got to love a bad man once or twice in her life to be thankful for a good one." And the ever-assertive Caroline Manzo posted yet another motivational message from the avid AIDS activist: "I feel very adventurous. There are so many doors to be opened, and I'm not afraid to look behind them."
Named a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II in 1999 for her devotion to AIDS research, Elizabeth Taylor will also be remembered for her trademark violet-colored eyes. Platinum Hit's Jewel told her almost 140,000 followers, "I'd like 2 dedicate my song Violet Eyes to the great @DameElizabeth Taylor. you will be missed."
On a similar note of sympathy, The Real Housewives of D.C.'s Mary Amons expressed her grief and gratitude by tweeting , "Elizabeth Taylor, we will miss your glamour and style, but heaven is gaining a true talent and beauty. Thank you for sharing your gifts."
