Bling Empire’s Kelly Mi Li Honors Late “Treasure” Anna Shay
Anna’s family confirmed in a June 5 statement that the matriarch had died following a stroke. Reflecting on her life, they added in part, “Anna taught us many life lessons on how not to take life too seriously and to enjoy the finer things. Her impact on our lives will be forever missed but never forgotten.”
And since her death, other Bling Empire cast members including Kevin Kreider have spoken about what she meant to them.
“Anna never expected anything in return and always just wanted to see people live life to their fullest,” Kevin noted in a statement to E! June 6. “I remember when we were playing celebrity jeopardy, and despite us losing, she still wanted to donate more money. She just wanted to see others win.”
He went on to reflect on one of the final times he and Anna spoke.
