Her personal publicist, Liz Dixson, revealed how the television personality had been gravely injured when the car she was in collided with another vehicle. The incident occurred near Old National Highway in Atlanta at around 11 p.m. on Sunday.

There's nothing she wouldn't do for those she loved


Sadly, Ross succumbed to her injuries the following day at the Grady Memorial Hospital at around 10:30 p.m. A representative from the reality show paid tribute to the star in a statement.



The statement described Ross as "the most beautiful, kind, giving, generous human ever.” According to the representative, the reality star “was adored by cast and crew because she always wore her heart on her sleeve."

She was further described as a selfless person stating: "There's nothing she wouldn't do for those she loved." Ross starred on the Lifetime show alongside Shirlene "Juicy" Pearson, Briana Barlup, Tiffany “Monie” Cashette, Emily Fernandez, and twins Amanda and Andrea Salinas.



She’d been on “Little Women: Atlanta” since 2016. Shortly after the news of her death broke, her longtime co-star, Amanda Salinas, shared an emotional tribute on her Instagram account.



The reality show focuses on a group of little women living in Atlanta. Ross starred as part of the main cast for all six seasons of the show.



The sixth season is yet to air sometime this year. She is survived by her mother Tammy Jackson, her aunt Veronica Deloney, her uncle John Deloney, and her grandmother Rose Deloney.



Another little woman recently faced her own tragedy. Christy McGinity, from “Little Women: L.A.” lost her newborn daughter, Violet Eva Carazo, on March 20, 2020.


The baby girl was only just two weeks old at the time of her death. McGinity and her boyfriend, Gonzalo Justo Carazo’s daughter was born seven weeks early.
