Mindy McCready Suicide: Celebrity Rehab Cast Mate Lisa D’Amato Is “Devastated”
Over the weekend, country singer Mindy McCready was tragically found dead after an apparent suicide. She is the third person from Season 3 of Vh1’s Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew die in the past two years. Now, Celebrity Rehab co-star, and America's Next Top Modelwinner, Lisa D'Amato is speaking out about the tragedy. Lisa told People she got a phone call Sunday night — when Mindy's body was found and the tragic news broke — from fellow cast member Mackenzie Phillips. "We [all] went through therapy, and we know more about each other than people who have known us their entire lives,” Lisa said. “It's a very sacred private time. And now it feels like half my cast is dead. I am devastated." Lisa said she was in contact with Mindy, off and on, and their last exchange was last year when Mindy congratulated Lisa on winning ANTM All Stars. "Her text message was: Finally you got what you deserved," Lisa said, adding, "I'm just numb. She was such a beautiful, warm-hearted, giving, lovely woman."
