Kara Keough Bosworth, the reality star on “Real Housewives of Orange County (RHOC)” recently paid tribute to her late son four months after his death.

In a lengthy post, Kara, 31, mourned the loss of her son, McCoy, after he died four months ago. She posted a black-and-white photo of herself holding her son’s little hand and kissing his tiny face.
