On the eve of this year's Grammys, the music industry lost one of their most accomplished talents, and Bravo stars are sharing their shock and sadness over Whitney Houston's sudden passing.
"Another legend gone tragic & sad. #RIPWhitneyHouston," The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Caroline Manzo tweeted after news broke that the 48-year-old songstress was found unresponsive in her Beverly Hilton hotel room. Co-star Melissa Gorga echoed, "Say it isn't so... So devastating. We will always love you Whitney....."
Bethenny Frankel expressed her grief while noting the "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)" singer's ongoing struggle with drug addiction. "How tragic: Whitney Houston is dead. She seems to have been in pain for so much time that it makes me so terribly sad," she tweeted about the Newark, New Jersey native whose funeral is expected to happen in her hometown later this week. "Jersey is not shining as bright tonight as we remember our one of most bright shining stars Whitney Houston Rest in Peace Whitney Houston," Kathy Wakile tweeted.
However, it was The Real Housewives of Atlanta's Kandi Burruss who shared the most personal connection with the superstar. "I can't believe we just lost another legend. I feel so blessed that I had the opportunity to work with Whitney. Its so sad…This is the song I co wrote for Whitney Houston.#R.I.P. I still listen to it for motivation," she tweeted about the tune "Tell Me No."
