As Gia Allemand was laid to rest in NY today ... her boyfriend NBA star Ryan Anderson not only attended the funeral, but was embraced by Gia's family.

Anderson has been struggling with Gia's suicide -- which occurred after a blowout fight between the two in which Ryan told Gia he didn't love her anymore.

But Anderson mustered up the strength to bid farewell to Gia ... and during the service, he was seen with his arms around Gia's mother. 

Some of the Gia's former "Bachelor" co-stars also attended the service -- including Craig Robinson and Graham Bunn.

As we previously reported, Gia passed away on August 14. She was 29.

Suicide is selfish. It doesn't matter if he said, I don't love you anymore... and all that. The family would have no reason to blame him.

Why was he there? He calluously told her he didn't love her anymore. That shows you have nothing left for the person. He's not the boyfriend when he told her it was over.

Maybe I watch too much Law and Order as well as CSI... But is Anderson not a suspect in her death? He was last seen fighting with her, and was the one to discover her body?

Because you can't seem to read. You say I am blaming him (ie, " It's not healthy to blame others.") That was your comment to me about blaming him. I think it is disrespectful to show up at a funeral to someone you ended things with and then act like you cared and play the boyfriend after its overt. Apparently, you don't understand your own words. Too bad if you DON"T LIKE MY CAPS.

First off - just cuz your not IN love with them. Doesn't mean you don't love them. & Just because you have a fight doesn't mean you're going to break up. Just because someone cheats it doesn't mean they are going to break up. & When people fight they often say things they don't mean. & 2ndly what if he did mean it- no one is allowed to break up with anyone because they might commit suicide. It's not his fought SHE committed suicide. Thirdly some of the girls at the party look like they are going to a club not a funeral- that's who I'd be pissed at.

What do people expect her family to do? Kick him out and make a scene? It's not his fault she took her own life. I'm sure he had no idea she would do such a thing. Couples fight all the time, and no one really believes something like that's going to happen. I feel bad for him, and her poor mother. RIP

Hopefully Ryan has no feelings of guilt. He is in no way at fault . Gia was an unstable woman who could not cope with the realities of life!! I am sure Ryan was trying to get out of this relationship for some time and Gia had threatened suicide to try and keep him!! Very sad.

It's really a sad situation. All of us wish we could take back words we've spoken without thinking. It's worse when it ends like this and you can't take back you last words. You have to live with them.

What gives you the right to stand on your soapbox? You have never been mentally ill enough to want to take your own life. Spend your energy being thankful that you don't have mental illness instead of spending time judging those who DO have mental illness.
