She also says that her sister killed herself after hearing the news, claiming that she was coerced into saying unflattering things about Williams. William's sister, Kellie McGee, who had been diagnosed as bi-polar, committed suicide four months after learning her sister would not be on the show.

Wow. Sounds like case closed to me.
