This week, holocaust survivor and fashion mogul Edith Flagg, who has made regular appearances on Bravo's reality series, "Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles," since Flagg was cast, died in Los Angeles at the age of 94.

"My grandmother was a legend, not only in my eyes, but in the eyes of the countless people she helped and touched," Flagg said in a statement to TMZ on Aug. 13. "Beverly Hills and LA have lost one of the great members of the community."

After discovering the news of Edith's death, Flagg took to his Instagram account, where he shared a heartfelt message with fans. In the post, which included a photo of the two of them, Flagg told his followers that Edith was his best friend, and she was. Not only did Flagg go to Edith when he needed advice, the pair were so close that they even bought apartments in the same building.

Anyone who has seen "Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles," could see how special there bond was and is likely reeling over the thought that Flagg has lost her.

"Edith fled her native Austria at the age of 19 to escape the Nazis ... eventually making it to the US in the 1940s, where she built her fortune in the fashion industry," TMZ reported. "She was a big supporter of the United Jewish Welfare Fund and The City of Hope."

Currently, Flagg and the cast of "Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles" is filming the upcoming season of the show. No word yet on whether or not Edith will be seen when the show premieres on Bravo this fall.
