'House Hunters' Host Suzanne Whang Dies At 56 After 13-Year Battle With Breast Cancer
House Hunters host Suzanne Whang has died after a heartbreaking battle with breast cancer.
As RadarOnline.com has learned, the TV star, 56, passed away Tuesday, September 17, at around 7:20 p.m.
“A lifetime of love, adventure, humor and bliss now lives in our memories,” Whang’s partner, Jeff Vezain, wrote in a Facebook statement this Thursday, September 19.
The actor said he was with her, kneeling beside her at home, when she took her last breath.
“For thirteen years she confronted cancer with courage, humor, determination and optimism,” wrote Vezain of his late love. “She was immensely encouraged by the love of her family, friends and those she had yet to meet. Your kind, loving messages always lifted her spirits.”
Vezain said that he’s been crying uncontrollably, as well as laughing at his fond memories of Whang, because “laughter was a staple of our dynamic.”
“Her audacious sense of humor blessed many, shocked a few, but allowed us to laugh in the face of adversity. She was an amazing daughter, sister, friend, mentor and advocate. As I, her family and her closest friends process her transition, we ask for your prayers and loving thoughts,” he continued.
Vezain thanked Whang’s fans, friends, and loved ones for their kind words of comfort.
“As I say good bye to a soul who was more than a true love, but also a best friend and an intellectual and spiritual book-end, know that we may not be able to respond to queries, but will try to keep you updated. Thank you,” he concluded.
Apart from House Hunters, Whang appeared on Las Vegas, From Here on OUT, Fox After Breakfast, and several other shows. She was also a published author, minister, and political activist.
