    Daisy Lewellyn has lost her battle to cancer.

    The 36-year-old "Blood, Sweat and Heels" star passed away after fighting a rare liver cancer, E! News confirms.

    She was best known as a style expert and reality TV personality. She was also an author and an editor for magazines like Glamour, InStyle and Essence.

    Lewellyn revealed she was diagnosed with cancer in February 2015.

    "It was kind of shocking," she explained during an interview with website Madame Noir. "But also when I was diagnosed, I remember some of my immediate thoughts being like, 'Well you know what? I'm not afraid to die.'"

    She continued, "It wasn't like I wanted to die, and it wasn't like I didn't want to live because I absolutely love my life and I've always loved my life, but they told me it was stage three cancer. I was like, 'Well, if it's my time to go, I'm OK with it.'"

    "My deepest condolences to the family of Daisy Lewellyn. RIP," wrote former co-star Demetria Lucas on Twitter after the news of Lewellyn's passing broke.

    Bravo talk show host Andy Cohen also shared kind words about the Brooklynite. 

    "I am just heartbroken. What a wonderful spirit, force of life and great person. She lit up every room. Sad day," he tweeted.

    Essence magazine released the following statement about Lewellyn.

    "Daisy's name says it all: she was sunny and warm, a breath of fresh air in springtime. You could not help but be swept away by her vivacious personality. She worked for a time at Essence as our Accessories Editor, and her sense of style and understanding of the Essence woman definitely made its mark. Even after she moved on to other pursuits, she remained part of the Essence family...I will never forget her wide smile and graciousness. I know her bright spirit will live on through all the lives she has touched," the magazine said.
