A New Orleans fitness studio is planning a memorial honoring reality TV star Gia Allemand.

Pure Barre will close at 12:00 noon on Saturday so workers and clients can participate in the event.

The memorial will be on the bank of the Mississippi River behind Jax Brewery beginning at 1:00 that afternoon.  Organizers will pass out white ribbons to wear and will toss white flowers into the river.

Allemand was an instructor at the studio.  She was also a star of the ABC show The Bachelor.  She died Wednesday after a suicide attempt on Monday.
