Actress Holly Robinson Peete spoke to Mom•Logic about the sudden loss of her friend, Donda West, who died last week following a cosmetic surgical procedure.
Peete first met West, who managed her son Kanye’s career, at a record industry function two years ago.
“Donda was one of those women that walked in a room and just lit it up … just a mega-kilowatt smile,” Peete said. “Immediately I was drawn to her as someone who was just so magnetically special—I just had an instant connection with her.”
“I’m going to miss her,” she added. “I’m going to miss her smile. I’m going to miss her integrity … and I’m going to miss seeing her and Kanye together.”
