Exclusive: According to Close Friend “Heaven Has a New Angel” in Anne Heche, RIP, “My Heart is Broken”


Anne Heche’s close friend, philanthropist Nancy Davis, has posted a memorial tribute to the actress. According to sources as well as Davis’s post, Heche has officially passed away.

On a personal note: I knew Anne from New York in the 1990s. In 1997 at the Vanity Oscar party I — and my friend, Norah Lawlor, and actor Vince Vaughn — introduced Anne to Ellen DeGeneres. It was as if lightning struck. Over the years, whenever I saw Anne she was delightful and fun, and smart. She never caused harm to anyone, and only wanted good things. This is a terrible tragedy. I am sorry for her kids and friends. She will be sorely missed.

Davis wrote: “Heaven has a new Angel . My loving , kind , fun , endearing and beautiful friend @anneheche went to heaven. I will miss her terribly and cherish all the beautiful memories we have shared . Anne was always the kindest, most thoughtful person who always brought out the best in me. She was so supportive with anything she could do to help @racetoerasems and would always say yes when she knew she could contribute something with her time, talent and creative genius to help find a cure for MS . My heart is broken”
