Andy Cohen is mourning the loss of a friend. The Bravo star shared a heartfelt tribute on Instagram for his late pal, George Kolasa, a luxury fashion executive who died on Wednesday after suffering from an aggressive form of brain cancer. He was 57.

He left as he lived — in peace, love, light, gratitude and with Justin by his side,» the statement reads, referencing Kolasa's husband, Justin Tarquinio. «GEORGE WILLIAM KOLASA — YOU HAVE LIFTED US ALL HIGHER. ❤️ George wanted nothing more than to continue his mission to beat rare
