Such sad news.  Reality TV star Gia Allemand, 29, died of an apparent suicide.   Her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson discovered her Monday night at her home in New Orleans.

According to a family statement:

“Due to a critical loss of brain and organ function, life support was withdrawn” on Wednesday. Ms. Allemand passed away peacefully with her mother, boyfriend, and other lifelong friends by her side. As a practicing Christian, Gia did receive the sacrament of last rites.”
