Christie paid tribute to Mary Wilson 

"She was a bonafide icon of legendary proportions who came into my life thru the jukebox that blasted "Where Has my Love Gone?", in the tiny diner near State Beach in California where my friends and I liked to meet up.

"We would pop some coins in, we would ALWAYS choose a Supremes song, and we would dance next to our table in the aisle imitating the famous trio."

Christie was a contestant on Dancing With the Stars in the same season as Mary and she wrote about their interaction.

Christie shared a photo of daughter Sailor with Mary 

"So when I met Mary Wilson when we were both contestants on @dancingabc well ...it was a big deal! She was instantly dazzling and welcoming with her gorgeous smile and enthusiasm. She introduced me to her family And when I broke my arm on DWTS and she met my daughter Sailor, they became fast friends.

"She told me, 'Don’t you worry, Mama Mary will be looking after Sailor, I’ll be her Mama while you heal! And when Sailor would call me, her nerves frazzled from the intense schedule Mary would jump on the phone and give me a full report! And tell me not to worry. What a huge heart!"

Christie ended her post by writing: "I wanted to be like her as a teen and today I am equally inspired to be like her.. kind and eager to embrace the world with arms and heart wide open! I’m so sad she was taken too soon.

"To her family she loved with all her heart and her manager Jay she loved like family my most sincere and heartfelt condolences. And to Sailor who lost a very very special friend."
