Paulina Porizkova is not afraid to admit that she still mourns the loss of her ex-husband Ric Ocasek.

The Cars frontman died on September 15, 2019, at the age of 75, with the death occurring a year after the band were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, followed by an announcement by the model about social networks that she and Ocasek had separated after 28 years of marriage.

“Grieving for me, unlike grief – which leaves you completely brutal and exposed – is almost like a release in time,” the 56-year-old told Yahoo! in a video interview she posted on Monday.

“People were talking to me and I couldn’t understand them; I really felt like people spoke a totally different language, ”she explained. “And that’s of course when you have to deal with lawyers and manage money and accountants and figure out what’s supposed to happen and then make decisions about it and that – and I remember thinking: ‘ I don’t even know what you’re saying to yourself, so how can you expect me to make any decision? “

“I know my life now seems perfect; living in a beautiful apartment, just featured on the cover of Vogue, attending the Oscars with my man… I am extremely grateful for all the new and beautiful gifts I receive from life, ”she said. “And yet, I still cry. Almost every day. And although I desperately want to feel and focus only on the hope and the possibilities that lie ahead, sometimes I can’t.”

“Broken hearts don’t mend easily or quickly,” she added. “But they are healing.”
