Our hearts are going out to Lisa Rinna today.
The The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star shared on social media that her father, Frank Rinna, has died. She writes, “The World lost a Great Man today……Heaven got a great Angel. I love you Dad.”
As E! Online reports, Rinna had often spoken about her father’s health during the past few months. He was often treated for pneumonia during the past few years, most recently in April 2015.
Rinna shared on Twitter that she’s appreciating all the kind words from fans, who have reached out with comforting words such as, “Keeping you and your family in my prayers,” and “Sending you love, support, positivity and courage. You are loved sweet girl.”
Some have even shared life inspiration: “Yeah and there’s an expiration date to our lives sooo YES love, live and laugh the MOST you can!”
On an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Rinna visited her childhood home in Medford, Oregon, and talked about the difficulty of letting go of her childhood, especially while her father struggled with illness. “I have a lot of guilt being so far away. It’s really, really hard,” she said.
With Rinna’s sweet tribute, it’s obvious she was a caring daughter. Not that messages from fans aren’t great, but we hope she has people close to her to provide support doing this time as well.
