At the same time, she was grateful for the outpouring of love she received from her followers, as she followed that up with another post that captioned "It’s been a devastating couple of weeks... one day at a time... I thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all your love and support. Love Lisa xo.” Here’s hoping her event on Saturday was just the right thing to cheer her up in this difficult time.
