After both her husband and sister try to insist that her mother is "not disappointed," and her sister reminds her that "there is nothing you could've done," the Real Housewives of Atlanta creator breaks down.

"She said that she is disappointed that I didn’t call yesterday when she called me to tell me to call him. Now I can’t call him," she sobs. "I can’t believe I did this."

Princess goes on to explain that her recent closeness to her dad made his death even more difficult to process.

"The closest I’ve been to him is these last three years, but he was sick and then I didn’t even get to say goodbye to him. Why did I do that?" she asks herself.

Struggling to breathe, she adds, “I’m sorry, dad.”

In the final moment of the clip, David and Christen both console Princess as she continues crying.
