Vili Fualaau Emotionally Recalls Mary Kay Letourneau’s Final Moments & Death

Published

Vili Fualaau is opening up about the emotional final moments he spent with his beloved Mary Kay Letourneau before her death earlier this year at the age of 58.

Infamously forever known as the former teacher’s one-time student lover, Fualaau sat down with Dr. Mehmet Oz for an interview that’ll air on his eponymous talk show on Wednesday.

It’s an emotional scene for the now-34-year-old father as he spoke about Letourneau’s final moments alive before her untimely passing due to cancer in July. He recalled to the Dr. and talk show host how they had been having a normal conversation about their family when, all of a sudden, it turned out to be their very last one.

Fualaau said (below):

“We were just talking about when they were kids and we were laughing. And I turned over and I didn’t see her chest moving. And I thought it was maybe one of those pauses she has and she’ll come back. You know, she’s gonna take a deep breath and she’s gonna come back. I would count in-between those pauses and it was just the longest count that I had.”

Wow. Talk about sudden and scary… Of course, Letourneau had been battling stage four cancer for some time, so Fualaau had been emotionally prepared knowing he would eventually have to face that moment. But as it came, he was overcome with emotion — and he broke down in tears again telling it to Dr. Oz.

From there, he called to their children, Audrey and Georgia, that they needed to hurry and go get the rest of their family in order to say goodbye:

“In that moment, I had to… I had to tell the kids that they needed to call the rest of the siblings to come and say their goodbyes. That this is it.”

So sad…

Here’s the full clip of Fualaau’s recollection of that fateful July day (below):

As we mentioned (above), his full interview with Dr. Oz will air on Wednesday’s episode of the talk show.

Of course, Letourneau and Fualaau became a hot topic in 1996 when they began a sexual relationship; she was a 34-year-old teacher and he was her 12-year-old sixth-grade student. One year later, she gave birth to their first child, and was later sentenced to seven years in prison for child rape, though she only served about six months before being initially released.

During that release, she became pregnant with Fualaau’s second child — the boy was 15 years old by that time — and the presiding judge ordered Letourneau to finish out her full sentence due to the second major violation.

After her release from prison, she and Fualaau eventually married in 2005, even as Letourneau was required to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life. In 2017, Fualaau filed for legal separation, though the pair remained close after that and in the time leading up to her death back on July 6.

Proud husband-to-be! Duane Chapman revealed fiancée Francie Frane impressed him with her intuitive skills when they went on their first bounty hunt together following their engagement. The WGN America alum reflected on the experience in a sneak peek for an upcoming episode of The Dr. Oz Show 

“I know she’s a hunter. Her and her two sons have hunted bow hunt, so they track, they look for things that the prey leaves behind. And so, she’s kind of a natural,” Duane, 67, said in a teaser clip obtained by People on Friday, September 25.

Not only did she take action, but she “just fit right in” with the team, the TV personality added. “She started getting leads and writing them down, so there’s more than just tracking and hunting.” Duane said she found her niche in “the investigation behind the investigation … and she’s really, really good at that.” 

Dr. Oz shared his own teaser clip from the Monday, September 28, show, revealing Francie helped Duane make big improvements to his lifestyle. “No swearing, fewer cigarettes and down 20 pounds,” the talk show host wrote in his caption, teasing more of what is to come in the bounty hunter’s latest interview. 

Duane and Francie announced their engagement in May after he popped the question during a candlelit dinner at their Colorado home.

The reality star often credits Francie for helping him cope with the death of his late wife Beth Chapman, who passed away in June 2019 following a cancer battle. They had been together nearly 30 years and Beth was only 51 when she died. Francie also lost her spouse to cancer, so they found comfort in each other.

In August, Duane opened up about the severe depression he felt in the wake of his longtime love’s death. “I barely remember the first six months,” the Dogs Most Wanted star told RadioTimes.com. “After that, when everything calms down, and people quit calling you, and flowers quit coming to the door and all of a sudden, you’re alone … that’s when it hit me,” he explained. 

Francie and Duane ultimately found love in each other and he made sure to go the extra mile when he purchased her dazzling diamond ring. 

“Francie’s stunning ring features what appears to be an estimated 1.5 to 2-carat cushion or round brilliant diamond surrounded by a cushion-shaped diamond halo,” Kathryn Money, Brilliant Earth’s Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Retail Expansion, previously speculated in an exclusive statement to In Touch.

Duane and Francie have big wedding plans in store!

Talley lashed out at Wintour in his May memoir, “The Chiffon Trenches,” dubbing her a “colonial dame.”

But Friday, he wrote on Instagram: “Proud to see very, very beautiful, stunningly elegant [Lizzo] on Vogue’s current cover.” He added, “Progress is advancing at full supersonic Concorde speed. Dame Anna Wintour made a promise and she kept her word. Her public apology was right on.”

But, he said, “in the years I worked there, under her reign, this cover would have never been published, even if it were a trial.”

He claimed that it would have been killed by the advertising side of the company, hinting that they would have thought it would be off-putting to Vogue readers.

Seo Ye-Ji’s Ko Moon Young was seen publishing a book digressing from her usual dismayed themed narratives and Oh Jung -she’s  Moon Sang Tae took a  dreamy carefree road trip. Assessing how most of the Korean series draws the closing line after one season, this too is treated for such an evaluation.

However, looking at how Ko Moon -young when visited her mother and shared a schmooze giving her a sense of closure might have floored a way for its second season.

Even though no news has announced the series being poised to make S2, a scene that strongly disaffirms its termination after the 1st season was when the trio converged on the same stage was actually the Moon brothers going their separate ways.

Actor Park kyu -Yung playing ‘Nam Ju -el ‘ articulated his working experience with the lead actor Kim Soo-Hyun in an interview’  His energy was truly great. I’ve seen his drama fans even before I debuted and I was worried and nervous about how our teamwork would be. I asked him a lot of things I was curious about and he made working together very comfortably,so I’m thankful’.
