"I only met him through work -- a couple of times we were out together. I knew him professionally, and that's exactly what he was," she said. "I don't get to go on that show anymore, but I would love to see the cast do a beautiful tribute, he deserves it. And I know for them it would be healing. I still can't quite believe it's real."
