The couple had just arrived home from Palm Springs, where Charo had performed the night before his death.

& # 39; We ate, but he didn't talk, he didn't talk much at dinner, & # 39; said the guitarist. & # 39; When he went to sleep, he looked at me very strangely. & # 39;

The mother of one said she & # 39; no idea, no idea at all & # 39; that Kjell was suicidal.

She described him as & # 39; the best husband, the best father, the best companion & # 39 ;.

& # 39; He didn't want me to find him, & # 39; Charo said with her big accent. & # 39; I find him and I thought he fell. & # 39;

& # 39; I ran to him because I thought he was falling and I was embracing him and full of blood. My hair was full of blood, as if I had a shower of blood. & # 39;

At the time, Charo said he had a pulse and was still breathing. She ran into the street and marked a famous tour bus that passed by.

& # 39; I screamed in the street, full of blood and a tour bus called the police and called the ambulance, & # 39; she said with tears.

Charo told The Talk hosts that she still thought her husband had fallen and lost a lot of blood. It was only when a police officer sat down and explained the situation that she understood that her husband of more than 40 years had taken his own life.

& # 39; He said, "Sit down, he didn't fall, he hit a bullet in the head," she explained. & # 39; And at that moment I had a bullet in my heart. & # 39;

Kjell was taken to the hospital and died later that day at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

In a simultaneous statement confirming his tragic death, Charo said that Rasten was despondent amid health issues that had seriously affected his quality of life.

& # 39; In recent years his health has started to deteriorate and he developed a rare and terrible skin disease called bullous pemphigoid & # 39 ;, the statement said.

& # 39; He also became very depressed. That, along with the many medicines he had to take, became too much for him and he ended his suffering. & # 39;

During The Talk, Charo begged the audience and viewers to watch & # 39; for depression & # 39; and thanked them for their support.

Sheryl explained that she found her husband after a failed suicide attempt. He later committed suicide in 1990.

Charo wondered how Sheryl survived the tragedy.

& # 39; I had to choose life and I put God first & # 39 ;, she replied.
