it amazes me how all of her hollywood "FRIENDS" came out to talk about how much they loved her, and what a great person she was, but none of them tried to help her when she was in need of assistance with her medical and transportation bills. She needed $25,000, and was only able to raise a little over half of that. Shows what kind of "friends" people have in hollywood.
