Kim Richards is still struggling to accept the loss of her best friend and ex-husband Monty Brinson.
Monty, who passed away in January from a long battle with cancer, was very near and dear to Richards’ heart. Not only is he the father to the reality star’s daughter Brooke Brinson, but he also lived with her for many years AFTER their divorce.
Speaking to E! News, Kim was visibly emotional as she recalled her amazing relationship with the business man, saying:
“He’s definitely was the best friend I’ve ever had in my life. I don’t think I’ve had anybody closer in my life. I don’t think I’ve ever had a better friend├óΓé¼┬ªI mean, I have beautiful best friends that I’ve had for a long, long time. But, you know, Monty and I were married when I was 19.”
How heartbreaking. We can’t imagine how hard this must be for K.R. right now.
Elaborating on their “never ending” bond, the blonde revealed:
“He truly was just super special. He still is. He’s an angel. We share a beautiful daughter. But he was also ‘Uncle Monty’ to my other children├óΓé¼┬ªYou know, he lived with us for many, many, many, many years The bond we have is never ending. People used to say, ‘I don’t know what Monty would have done without you.’ I don’t know what I would have done without Monty. It was definitely a two-way street.”
Hmm. We wonder why the pair’s marriage fell apart in the first place… it seems like they were meant for each other.
Either way, we wish Kim the best during this difficult period in her life.
