  1. Great post. She's so beautiful. Have a wonderful week.

  2. so gorgeous...I am loving these posts!

  3. Gorgeous bio and pics...
    I adore Gemma; I didn't know she was friends with Heath, so I feel sad for her now!


  4. wow! very cool timeline of her highlights. the last picture of her is beautiful.

  5. I love Gemma! Another one of my favorites!!! You are the best XO

  6. Gemma had probably already been dating Heath WAY BEFORE they finally came out to their families as a couple in December/Janaury 2008 as Heath and Michelle (his ex-girlfriend) had actually been living separately for nearly a year before the official split. It's so sad that Heath died just 3 weeks after he spent Christmas with Gemma. She seems to have taken it very hard, which is understandable. I wish her the best in whatever she wants to do. I personally would like to see her do more charity and film work.
