Dews' body was found at the base of a gorge in Pennsylvania last week. Authorities have labeled her death as being 'suspicious.'
A visitation for relatives and friends of Gail Dews will be held from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Monday at Nazare Memorial Home in Lyndhurst. Dews body was found at the base of a 92-foot gorge off a Pennsylvania highway Monday, March 11.

Procession arrived at noon Sunday for burial ceremony at Fairview Cemetery. Nearly 100 fans shouted 'We love you, Whitney' as hearse turned into the cemetery.
The vigil at Fairview Cemetery began at first light Sunday morning. There were no mourners, just reporters and photographers mingling congenially as they staked out a good spot for their reports back to the network morning shows or a position for the perfect photo of the funeral procession bringing Whitney Houston to the cemetery for her burial. Police officers arrived before daylight, at 6 a.m., to secure every possible corner of the Fairview property, from the Cranford border along Union County College to the south and E. Broad Street to the north. At the western end of the cemetery, Gallows Hill Road was closed to prevent any neighborhood street from messing up any potential route in which the procession of hearses and limos that would …

Monday, August 22, 2011
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" marked its second thoroughly difficult viewing week Sunday. We continue seeing the argument between housewife Jacqueline Laurita and her daughter Ashley Holmes, and once again see Montville Township sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga exchange jabs at each other during an otherwise pleasant social event.

Last week, Jacqueline stormed out when Ashley brought up the fact that she was not pregnant at 20, like Jacqueline was with her.
