On last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County, Vicki Gunvalson learned – quite publicly – that her mother, Joanne Closset Steinmetz, had passed away unexpectedly.

In a new Bravo blog, the reality star pays tribute to her mother, recalling the heartbreak she felt when she heard the news.

"When I watched the show, it was like I was reliving a nightmare," Gunvalson wrote. "So much of that evening is like a big blur."

But the 53-year-old doesn’t regret that she was filmed that evening, mostly because she was lucky to be surrounded by her Bravo family.

"I was glad I wasn't alone now that I look back on it," she admits, "as I don't think I could have handled it by myself."

After the show aired, Gunvalson stopped by Watch What Happens Live to discuss her loss with Andy Cohen.

Gunvalson’s mother passed away in February, and there are still moments that are hard for the reality star:

"I would give anything right now to call my mom and tell her I love her,'" she wrote. "Anything. I would give my life to be able to call her."

She also reminded her fans that it’s important to tell those close to you that you love them:

"I want to stress the importance of not putting off talking to or spending time with the ones you love. You never know when they will be taken from you."
