TAWNY Kitaen revealed she was writing a memoir in her final interview just weeks before the tragic actress' sudden death at 59 years old.
In light of her passing, Tawny's daughters Wynter, 28, and Raine, 22, shared a heartfelt statement on the late star's Instagram, vowing that her "legacy will live on."
Before her unexpected death last week, the actress known for Bachelor Party sat down with David Yontef from Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef where she revealed some interesting plans she had in the works.
The interview, which is set to come out on Tuesday, took place weeks before her untimely death.
She told David: "So I'm in the middle of writing a book right now, because if I don't write my life story, somebody else is going to, and they're going to do it off of sound clips, that aren't true and aren't real about me.
"So it's really, really important that I get my book out. Yeah. I mean, even if I only sell two copies, you know."
Tawny talked about how she wasn't willing to give up too much information about her in interviews because she was set to reveal them in her book.
Sadly, she didn't get to finish her book before her sudden death on Friday, May 7th.
TMZ was the first outlet to reveal the news, further adding that her cause of death is still unknown.
Tawny rose to fame when she first appeared in the 1976 game show, To Tell The Truth.
She then solidified her career as an actress as she appeared in Bachelor Party alongside Tom Hanks, The Perils of Gwendoline, and After Midnight.
Tawny also appeared in several music videos, including Whitesnake's Is This Love, and Here I Go Again.
Sadly, her personal life wasn't as successful as her career.
Her marriage to Whitesnake's lead singer, David Coverdale, for example, ended after just two years.
Tawny had two daughters with her second husband, baseball star Chuck Finley, whom she wed in 1997.
She entered a domestic violence counseling program as part of a plea deal after Chuck alleged that she kicked him in the face with her high heels.
He filed for divorce with the marriage officially ending in 2002.
Tawny also appeared in reality TV shows, such as The Surreal Life, Botched and VH1’s Celebrity Rehab with Dr Drew.
It was while on Celebrity Rehab that Tawny revealed her "long struggle with substance abuse, and run-ins with the law, including a charge for cocaine possession in 2006 and driving under the influence in 2009," Variety reports.
Following Tawny's death, her daughters took to social media to mourn her death.
They wrote: "We are heartbroken and saddened to announce the death of our mom.
"We just want to say thank you for all of you, her fans and her friends,
for always showing her such support and love.
"You gave her life everyday. We miss her and love her and we know her legacy will live on forever. Wynter and Raine."
