Any Doctor, Attorney, Family Members, that allowed this nice women to destroy herself may be guilty of a Horrible Crime. I hope everyone involved has a "Come to God Moment."
God Bless Ms. Gomez.


Gomez is the villain. Gourkani is the victim. Wake up.


We are nationally famous or is it infamous as with BALCO?



SAN MATEO COUNTY —The case of a Florida woman charged with involuntary manslaughter and practicing medicine without a license in the death of a South Bay model and Kardashian lookalike may hinge on what a still-pending coroner’s report says.

Geoffrey Carr, the defense attorney for Gomez, told the Bay Area News Group in a phone interview that his client was “instrumental” in getting emergency personnel to the hotel when Gourkani was experiencing medical issues. Carr said Gourkani initially refused to go to the hospital but her partner, Gomez and the emergency medical technicians eventually convinced her to go.

Carr claimed that Gourkani’s only symptoms upon arrival at the hospital were lightheadedness and disorientation, adding that she thought she was in San Francisco when she was indeed in Burlingame.

According to Carr, Gomez didn’t leave the scene until Gourkani was in the hospital, and that happened to be around the time when her condition deteriorated. He said hospital records showed that Gourkani was suffering from brain swelling at the time.

In a court appearance in Redwood City on Tuesday, Judge Lisa A. Novak denied a defense motion to reduce Gomez’s bail, which was set at $200,000. After testimony from Gomez’s son, the family’s bail money was deemed to be coming from a legitimate source and bail was posted shortly thereafter, according to prosecutors.

Prosecutors say the court approved the bail on five conditions:

Gomez must surrender both her U.S. and Colombian passports to law enforcement; remain in California at all times; not perform any medical or cosmetic procedures; not possess any instruments intended for use in medical or cosmetic procedures; and waive her 4th Amendment rights and be subject to search and seizure by law enforcement.
