Hollywood, CA – “She was a tough lady, but will always be remembered as one who was very protective of her clients as we should be,” said EPPS President Henri Bollinger, who had talked to the slain longtime Publicist Ronni Chasen the day before she was gunned down in Beverly Hill, Ca.
The Publicist was driving home on Sunset Blvd. from an after-party and the premiere of Cher’s new movie “Burlesque.” Detectives said they believed it was a deliberate hit, when they discovered the publicist in her black Mercedes sedan, which was wrapped around a light pole. Chasen had suffered five gunshot wounds to the chest according to police.
“I was so traumatized that I realized that I was still only worried about an answer on a project, when a friend called and told me of her tragedy,” said Bollinger.
“It was then I realize that we need to live for the day, and you can not always be concerned over what you believe is important or a benefit to me. It took the better part of the day to reconcile,” he said.
