  23. iu Says:

  24. leion Says:

    I can’t believe this. All the money in the world and yet feel this way. This is not right! what a waist of life. so beautiful so talented and yet so depressed. May your soul rest in peace. You’ll be missed by your love ones for ever!

  25. galina Says:

    its soo sad.. she obviously did kill herself. But the sadest thing of all is that no one saw the pain she had inside. Far from familiy and home, on her own, broken hearted (few hours before she jumped, the boy she was in love with called her to say he was happily married)she had pressure from her job, she was the only member in her family acctually gaining money and felt pressure for this aswell… and the fact that she cut her hair before she flew, tells me that she was so depressed when she found out that if beauty and a great life doesnt bring happiness (the man you want and the life you want) then, whats all for?
    aswell, training in the Roza Mira center (rose of the world) helped her suicided earlier as many people who attend the place commit suicide but i dont know why. read about Anastasia Drozdova, she also attendend there and was friends with Ruslana and suicided in the same way months after ruslana.Rest in peace sweet angels

    You were pretty, you’ve made my friend Hannah-Brittany Brodheim cry! :'( x

  27. Mrs Styles-McDonough Says:

    Cerella Gillham ses hi x so dus Jazmyn Stanley x

  28. Barbie Says:

    I feel so sad, i don’t know why you would want to kill yourself. You are such a beautiful girl and had so much life ahead of you. my not very close friend Autumn Elaine King wanted to go on a date with you but can’t now because you are dead. hope you have a good time in heaven

  29. Mrs Styles-McDonough Says:

    Hannah-Brittany Brodheim loves you x

  30. Barbie Says:

    Autumn Elaine King wanted to marry you and have 5 kids with you

  31. Mrs Styles-McDonough Says:

    13 and preggie x

  32. Roxy DiCaprio Says:

    Heya Autumn!! Yh cos us American girls wanna get pregnant :/

  33. Codie Basse Says:

    Inappropriate language is being used here. This is placed here so people can pay their respects to the young model, not so that a couple can have arguments. If Autumn and Hannah are going to have arguments because they are in love, post it somewhere else because this is for paying respcts!

  34. Codie Basse Says:

    Autumn and Hannah, if you are having problems with your relationship, I know a couple therapist that can bring you back together.

  35. Amanda Ling Says:

    Mrs Styles-McDonough is an insensitive girl that would obviously make a joke out of this horrid death. She definately needs couple therapy!

  36. Roxy DiCaprio Says:

    That’s a bit rude! Plus who are you to say that?

  37. Lizzie Yall Says:

    In ma opinion, I think that Autumn is a little b****. She is disrespecting the death of this beautiful girl who was my friend!

  38. Fay garza Says:

  40. aimee jones Says:

    autumn and hannah are two girls in my workplace who had their names used for a verbal fight. none of the girls would really do this. they really respect this girl and view her as a role model. sorry for any inconveniences to anyone. RIP ruslana korshunova.

  41. Dayza Listy Says:

    I believe what you typed made a lot of sense. But, what about this?
    suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t good, but what if you added a headline that makes people desire
    more? I mean Ruslana Korshunova | FamousDEAD is
    kinda boring. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news headlines to get viewers to open the
    links. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to
    grab people excited about everything’ve got to say. Just
    my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

    It is because of this that I have decided to write this
    article and cover a few honest methods to lose belly fat naturally.
    We’ve all been exposed to the “Core Craze” that’s swept television infomercials, magazines, and fitness classes-but why is it so important to our everyday fitness rituals. Oz who has reported in the past about how hormones affect belly fat.
