The Dukes Of Hazzard star Catherine Bach has credited grief therapy sessions for helping her get over the 2010 death of her lawyer husband Peter Lopez.
The actress, who created the iconic TV role of Daisy Duke for the longrunning 1980s TV hit, was left devastated when Lopez shot himself in the head in the backyard of the home he shared with his wife and two daughters.

And, as she returns to work on daytime soap The Young and the Restless, she admits counselling helped her get back to normal after the awful tragedy.

Speaking to next door neighbor and friend Billy Bush on news show Access Hollywood Live, Bach explains, “I pushed through it with the help of really good friends and church and therapy… I’m gonna use this moment to tell people out there who are having tough times to look in your area for grief therapy because you can find your way through the most terrible thing.”

And Bach admits she still isn’t 100 per cent convinced her husband simply took his own life: “There was nobody more stable than Peter. Something happened to this man… I’m sure it will come to light… I trusted him and I trusted his judgment.”
