    Allemand's boyfriend, Ryan Anderson, discovered her unconscious at her New Orleans home on Monday night and called 911. The 29-year-old model and reality-TV star is said to have hanged herself.

    "Gia was the most beautiful person I knew inside and out and she always smiled and made everyone else around her smile," Anderson said yesterday in a statement. "She had such an amazing impact on my life and anyone that knew her was blessed. All I have left is to cherish those memories we made together and help perpetuate the many values, faith and love that we shared."

    Allemand was taken off of life support yesterday after suffering a critical loss of brain and organ function. Her body was released to her family today following an autopsy to determine official cause of death.

    Her rep says that the funeral will be open to the public, but cell phones and cameras will not be permitted inside.
