A tribute to an icon – Tawny Kitaen
Tawny Kitaen passed away on May 7, 2021 and fans have been mourning her on social media ever since. As the public continues to share their honors and condolences, a close friend of Tawny (real name Julie Kitaen) has offered her own heartfelt tribute and memories to the beautiful redhead who starred alongside Tom Hanks in the hilarious comedy Bachelor Party . “Red” posted her own tribute, revealing that she and Tawny were as close as sisters and had been friends for decades. She also stated that Tawny was doing wonderful new ventures in her life and her death was sudden and shocking to those who knew and loved her the most.
While speculation about Tawny’s cause of death continues to mount, her brother Jordon Kitaen spoke to TMZ and said he believed she died of a broken heart after losing her hero – her father Terry Kitaen – on April 12, 2021. Jordan Kitaen said he thought Tawny’s body couldn’t handle the loss of her father. Terry Kitaen’s funeral was scheduled just days after Tawny’s untimely death.
