In memory of Cheslie Kryst, Billy Bush uploaded a photo of her to his Instagram page along with a touching caption that gave insight to her dynamic personality. Bush included a snap of Kryst interviewing Tom Hanks on the red carpet for “Extra,” and she was mid-laugh while holding the microphone for the Hollywood star. “She was positive, hardworking, fun and of course beautiful,” the famed television host said. “Always dancing in between takes,” Bush wrote while describing Kryst’s infectious energy. As with many fans, Bush was especially heartbroken that he was robbed of seeing his former colleague’s bright future develop. “We are left with great sadness because the best was definitely yet to come for this special person,” he added.
Bush was not the only celebrity to praise Kryst while mourning her on social media. Tamron Hall had fond memories of her interactions with the pageant queen. “Being a witness to Cheslie’s strength was an unforgettable experience and hearing her share the journey to Miss USA was so special,” Hall tweeted. Comedian and fellow television host Loni Love uploaded a video of her and Kryst to Twitter, where the two women shared a bunch of laughs. “This is how I will remember #CheslieKryst … smart, beautiful and talented … I wish we had more time,” Love wrote.
“Extra” also had kind words for their former correspondent. “Cheslie was not just a vital part of our show, she was a beloved part of our ‘Extra’ family and touched the entire staff,” the show tweeted.
