Sad news for Elizabeth Kitt, the beauty we first met on Jake Pavelka's The Bachelor Season 14. She lost a loved one yesterday, a woman she referred to as her “second mom.”

Mrs. Ty Brown — she and the Ali Fedotowsky castoff married in March of this yeartweeted the loss yesterday, writing, “An amazing woman (second mom to me) went to heaven. I would love to leave the kind of legacy she leaves!”

Elizabeth included a screenshot of a text message her loved one, Linda McNair, sent her in December of 2013. In it, the recently-departed wrote glowing words about Elizabeth, texting “I want you to know how much you’ve blessed my life by being in it, and I’m excited for Ty Brown to get to know you.” Looks like Linda got to witness Elizabeth and Ty’s growing love, for which we’re sure Lizzie is thankful.


Though Liz and Ty have been laying low lately — compared to her Bachelor Pad 1 days and her tumultuous relationship with current Bachelor in Paradise star Jesse Kovacs — they seem happy to pursue their interests outside reality TV. Ty is still making music, and Elizabeth appears to be pretty happy being a wife.

Sorry for your loss, Liz! Send your condolences in the comments.
