Gia Allemand has been laid to rest.
Friends and family members gathered on Thursday to pay their last respects to the former "Bachelor" and "Bachelor Pad" contestant, who committed suicide last week.
The mass was held in New York City at Trinity Grace Church on a quiet street in Chelsea.
Allemand's boyfriend, NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson, was in attendance.

Anderson escorted Allemand's mother, Donna Micheletti — who carried a single yellow rose — into the church. He was later seen comforting her following the mass.
Tragic details have emerged about what took place in the hours leading up to Allemand's suicide on Aug. 12.
According to the police report, Allemand had been arguing with Anderson over suspicions that he had been cheating on her. When Anderson dropped Allemand off at her New Orleans apartment, he said, "I don't love you anymore," according to his statement to police.

Two hours later, Micheletti called Anderson, expressing concern about her daughter. When Anderson went to Allemand's apartment to check on her, he found her hanging from a vacuum cleaner cord.
Allemand, 29, was rushed to the hospital and died two days later after she was taken off life support. Anderson was by her side. According to "omg! Insider" there was a line in the program on Thursday, which read "Gia was the loving girlfriend 'Petrie' to Ryan's 'Snuggy.'"
Among the mourners who gathered today to pay their respects to Allemand were fellow reality-show cast mates and close friends, including her fellow "Bachelor Pad" contestants Gwen Gioia, Jaclyn Swartz, Rachel Truehart, and Graham Bunn.
