Gia Allemand's Mother Speaks Out in Wake of Tragic Death

Just a few short days after the tragic death of Bachelor star Gia Allemand, her family is trying to move forward despite their grief.

On Friday's edition of Live From E!, Arlene Santana, William Marfuggi and Melanie Bromley discussed the heartbroken family's plans for the future.

Allemand's mom, Donna Micheletti, is making it clear that she doesn't want just anyone speaking on her daughter's behalf going forward.

"As her mother, I am well aware of Gia's close friends and her best friends and I am personally going on record to refute all statements to the media out there thus far with the exception of official statements we have released through publicist Penelope Jean Hayes, and those jointly with Ryan Anderson's NBA team representation," Donna said in a statement to E! News.

Funeral plans are set for later next week in New York City. Many former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants are expected to attend.

Also on today's show, Darren Young was praised for his decision to come out as a gay WWE wrestler.

This morning on NBC's Today show, Young discussed addressing his sexuality publicly.

"I felt like it was the right place and the right time," Young said after his seemingly offhanded and nonchalant revelation about his sexuality at LAX airport. "I feel by coming out, I'm gonna make a big difference in a lot of people's lives."

Paris Jackson's mother, Debbie Rowe, took to the stand where she tearfully opened up about her daughter's suicide attempt.

"She tried to kill herself," Rowe said on the witness stand. "She is devastated. She has no life. She doesn't feel she has a life anymore."
