Sad 2 hear the news of @LynnNChicago passing away yesterday on her birthday. She was always so supportive and sweet to me and our family :(

In memory of Lynn Nchicago Hudson.
I was so shocked and very sad to hear about the sudden loss of a great woman, and friend, whom many of you may know as the creator of the blog ‘I hate Jill Zarin’ that passed away on Wednesday. Whilst I wasn’t a fan of the title, I was a huge fan of hers. She was opinionated, controversial, funny as hell, and fiercely loyal.
I had the pleasure of her love and support from the start and invited her to my Inbox Full book launch in NYC last year, which she absolutely loved! She met all the cast, as well as Andy Cohen, who she’s be dying to meet for years. My father and her got on like a house on fire! We spoke only on Monday about her coming to NYC next month for my new book launch, and as my guest, seats for the audience for Watch What Happens Live. She was so excited!
I cried last night, many tears, and not hormone related! Tears for the loss of a friend, and a fellow writer that has entertained thousands, and whose legacy will live on. Bless your heart Lynn. Along with so many others, I will miss you very much. Rest in peace. Xxx
Twitter has become a place of family & friends. On this night I morn the loss of @LynnNChicago . Big love- big loss for all who knew her.
Lynda has RT so many condolences.  Too many to copy.

Just touched down at JFK after 18 days away, turned on my phone & received a sad text. #RIPLynnHudson@LynnNChicago
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of our former blogger @LynnNChicago

I am devastated. Another friend of mine, known as @LynnNChicago, passed away on her birthday yesterday.

She wrote a hugely popular (and somewhat controversial) blog about the Real Housewives. As most of you guys know, I don’t watch those shows, but she happened to get an early copy of GUTS, and she loved it.

Before ANYONE else, she supported the book in the way only she could–she raved constantly about it, and even set up an incredible “GUTS book club,” which meant the world to me. It was an amazing opportunity for people to ask me questions, discuss the book.

We became friends, and she would constantly write updates in her blog about GUTS, Pinky, and me.

Some people hated her blog, for whatever reason, and I got some shit from people for liking her.

I didn’t care what she wrote about, or any of that nonsense. I judge people for what I see, not other’s opinions. I found her to be funny, loyal, tough & very very smart. I really adored this woman.

For Lynn Hudson

On any other day, I find that I can rely on words.  Today, however,  there are none – none that come easily.   Those of us who write blogs, and all of us who read them, lost someone who made words come to life.  Now Lynn Hudson’ s sudden departure has left me without any way to express how much we’ve lost.  I would never have had the courage or the motivation to start my place here at The Farm.  I told her so when I began to write and she gave me her blessing.  So, for that, and much more, I will miss her.  I hope she knows how much she gave and how much she meant to all of us.

I wish her peace and rest.  I pray that her family can find solace in knowing how many of us she touched.  There is nothing I could have written today which could have more  been more important than expressing our collective sorrow and gratitude.

All I have to give are my words, and today, for you Lynn, I hope they’re enough.  I thank you.  We all thank you.

All Is Well
Death is nothing at all,
I have only slipped into the next room
I am I and you are you
Whatever we were to each other, that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
Speak to me in the easy way which you always used
Put no difference in your tone,
Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow
Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever the household world that it always was,
Let it be spoken without effect, without the trace of shadow on it.
Life means all that it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was, there is unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near,
Just around the corner.
All is well.

Good morning Friends. I woke up to the news that my friend & famous blogger, Lynn Hudson (LynnNChicago) died of a heart attack on her 49th birthday.Lynn had thousands of followers. Not everyone agreed with her but she spoke/wrote from he

r heart and was respected by many.When I was in the highlight of my blogging last year, I gained (I hate this word) “haters”. I spoke to Lynn about it and she told me that it came with the territory of blogging and if you didn’t have “haters” you weren’t doing something right.Lynn was nothing but kind to me and I respected her. I loved her writing style and her honesty. Twitter has been going crazy with the news.I will pray for her family & friends. May she Rest In Peace.Friends, this is just another reminder that we never know when we or a loved one will be gone from us. Take the day, tell people you love & care for them.I do you. I mean that, truly.

Lynn Hudson died suddenly of a heart attack on her 49th birthday leaving behind a husband and children and millions of loyal internet friends, including all the girls of the Real Housewives franchises and Andy Cohen, who all read her blog.  She was delighted to be such a significant blogger in the Real Housewives world and we will not be the same without her.

She single-handedly launched my blogging career by accidentally stumbling upon my very first Jill Zarin blogpost and recommending my blog to her readers. Before I blogged about Jill Zarin, my readers could be counted on one hand.  Then, suddenly, I had thousands of readers.

My point…Lynn had an impact.

Within just 3 days I was involved in a twitter war with Jill Zarin’s assistant and the rest was history. For the first time in my life I was involved in real-life drama and it was more fun than I had ever imagined drama could be.  I realised for the first time why people engaged in drama and why there were drama queens. In its unique way being involved in drama had its rewards.

Lynn and I became fast friends. We would commiserate back-and-forth via email…she, with her busy schedule always finding time to respond with a thought and, me, just tickled-pink that she would do so. Over the weeks and months she invited me to participate in numerous joint endeavors.

Constantly offering her friendship and encouragement to me, I began to come out of my shell with Lynn. She became my staunchest internet ally and supporter through all the twitter wars and defended me even when I felt I was indefensible. Lynn Hudson loved reading my blog. Though she didn’t always agree with me, she found the content always changing and often thought-provoking.

When discouraged, she picked me up. When engaged in internet drama she egged me on.

My biggest regret? That I didn’t have the opportunity to do the same for her.  It seems that in the end she, too, had moments of doubt and discouragement. Please read Carly Hall’s very moving tribute to our dear lost friend, LynnNChicago.  http://lynnnchicago.com

In the future, as I go through more blogging and twitter challenges, I will find myself asking “What would Lynn say?”…and, with that, I’ll be able to forge ahead with confidence and enthusiasm.

Thank you, Lynn.

Our world has been shaken by her sudden passing. In the coming days Carly Hall will be setting up a fund for Lynn’s family. If you enjoyed her blog and appreciated the camaraderie, contribute to this fund as an affirmation to Lynn that she made a joyful difference in your life.

Your friend,

    Geez, I still can’t type! That’s supposed to say Ladybrooks.

    My condolences to all. I was a reader for a few months and Lynn became a part of my daily routine. I could not bring myself to watch some of the shows she loved so much but I read her recaps with delight! Lynn’s writing became more fun than the shows themselves!

    Thank for putting this page up.

    I am late in hearing about Lynn but I was in total shock when yesterday I stopped in at Lynn’s blog when I realized the Miami housewives were coming back. I could not wait to hear what she had to say about it. After that I have been glued to my PC screen reading all the tributes and comments. I can not express how very sad this is and my prayers go out to her family and everyone. I use to visit her blog every day–I never said much but I enjoyed it and like someone else said–her blog became the go to place for any and all news on HW and Bravo. PC trouble has kept me off-line for awhile and thus the reason I am hearing this sad news so late. A big Thank-You for this new blog site!
    Debbie
