“It was kind of like a moment that I’ll never forget,” the reality star shared, explaining that he was having trouble getting in touch with Olivia after hearing about her loss. “She calls me and I’m like, boom, out the door. I ran down to see her, and we just had this rom-com movie moment of just, like, meeting in the driveway and collapsing into each other and it was just a moment you can’t really describe.”
The touching insight from the Bravo star comes after Olivia opened up about her brother’s cause of death, sharing that her 32-year-old sibling died from an accidental overdose of fentanyl, which came years after he was prescribed opioids due to his battle with Lyme disease.
“Austen—very much like the rest of the cast—really stepped up,” she recently told E! News. “He was there for me just like the rest of the cast. They all were at the funeral. He came, dropped off food. He was there to talk and I really appreciated that.”
