LITTLE Women: Atlanta plans to film Ashley ‘Ms Minnie’ Ross’ funeral and the cast’s reactions to her tragic death at just 34 from a fatal car crash.
A source exclusively told The Sun that filming for Season 6 of Little Women: Atlanta was “shut down” because of the coronavirus pandemic.
With filming to “hopefully” resume in upcoming weeks, the series plans to capture the aftermath of Ms Minnie’s tragic death.
The insider continued to The Sun: “The show plans to film reactions to the passing and memorials for Minnie.”
As The Sun reported, Ms Minnie collided with another vehicle head-on when she lost control of her Nissan Sentra while traveling south on Old National Highway in Atlanta in late April.
The Public Information Officer for the Georgia police department told The Sun: “The driver of the Nissan Sentra hit the right side curb, lost control of the vehicle, crossed into the north bound lanes of travel and struck a Ford Focus head on that was traveling north bound.”
Minnie suffered “serious injuries” and was transported to an area hospital for treatment, where she later passed away.
The driver of the Ford Focus sustained minor injuries.
The investigation remains ongoing.
Ashley’s funeral will take place on Saturday at 1:30pm EST at John P. Franklin Funeral Home.
A livestream will be available for loved ones and Little Women: Atlanta fans.
Ashley was an original cast member of the Lifetime series, which first aired in 2016.
A spokesperson for the show said: “She was the most beautiful, kind, giving, generous human ever. She was adored by cast and crew because she always wore her heart on her sleeve.
“There’s nothing she wouldn’t do for those she loved.”
Ashley’s co-star Amanda Salinas wrote on social media: “As I’m writing this I’m in tears I can’t believe it my Minnie !!!! Why did they take you away from us !!!! WHY!!!!!
“It always seems like we have all the time in the world, only to realize how fleeting it really is. I wish we had more time to do and say the things we saved for later which along with you is gone forever.”
Ms Minnie’s boyfriend, who goes by the name of SleakBeatz on Instagram, wrote on Instagram: “The moment I saw you, I just knew it. I realized that you are all that I have been searching for all my life.
“I love you today, I love you tomorrow and I will love you the same 10 years from now. Ima miss you baby girl. RIP. Love of my life.”
