But not so distraught that she's going to his funeral!
Heidi Fleiss, who is currently participating in UK's Celebrity Big Brother, lost her biological brother, Jason, several days before filming began.
The tragedy occurred while he was on vacation in Hawaii over New Years, as he was swept into the sea by a strong current and drowned.
Fleiss debated pulling out of the show, but was convinced to continue filming by her long-time boyfriend, Dennis Hof, better known as the owner of the famed Moonlite Bunny Ranch. Even though it means she'd have to miss his funeral.
"Heidi was so devastated she almost pulled out of Celebrity Big Brother," said Dennis. "She said, 'I loved Jason. I don't want to be disrespectful to him.' I told her she needed to get away and stay busy so she does not have time to dwell on this awful thing."
No word on what Heidi's older brother Jesse thinks, as he was also swimming in the ocean that day, but was miraculously saved by a surfer.
