Following a conversation about the shocking death of fashion designer Kate Spade on Tuesday (Jun. 5), The Talk co-host Sheryl Underwood detailed her own personal experience with losing a loved one to suicide.
Andy Spade called his wife the kindest person he knew and said he can not fathom life without her.
"It was a complete shock", he added.
"We were best friends trying to work through our problems in the best way we knew how", he explains.
Kate Spade arrives at 2007 7th on Sale Black-tie Gala Dinner at the 69th Regiment Armory on November 15, 2007 in New York City. We loved creating our businesses together.
"She didn't say why she did it", a police source said of Kate's final message.
"She had a light that words can't capture but touched everyone she came into contact with", Brosnahan wrote on Instagram alongside a video of the designer dancing with Andy Spade. "The contents of that note, as well as the physical state of the apartment and the comments of the witness, lend to the credibility that it is an apparent suicide", said Dermot Shea, chief of detectives for the New York City Police Department. "We want to honor her life and her major contribution to the fashion business and express our most honest condolences to the family".
"Last year, Coach, now known as Tapestry, bought the Kate Spade brand in a $2.4 billion deal".
He said they had been living apart, but he was in touch - either visiting with her or speaking with her - every day. Others cited unnamed fashion industry insiders who claimed Spade had been "drinking a lot" and was dealing with business problems. "Kate loved Bea so very much".
Her daughter is only thirteen years old and just lost her mother. "I would never do that, ' and I believed her". A decade later, they started a new company, Frances Valentine, which focused on shoes and handbags.
It was officially confirmed by the Medical Examiner's Office to the New York Times on Thursday morning. "And I said, 'I don't think so.' I used my maiden name". She was dying for me to say something, and I didn't.
