Ronni Chasen, an old friend and colleague of mine, was shot and killed in her car in Beverly Hills yesterday morning.
Ronni was one of the great Hollywood publicists. She was universally liked and respected and was one of the rare people in Hollywood who literally had–or, sadly, seemed to have–no enemies.
Ronni did wonderful work for me at different times over the years and I just cannot imagine anyone working up such a rage against her to shoot her 5 times in her car. The entire Hollywood community is in shock over this, as am I.
This morning, I am taping our discussions for the February and March, 2011 Spiritual Cinema Circle volumes and then I fly home.
And tomorrow I will be back to The Old Hollywood.
