In undoubtedly the series' most emotional episode yet, Big Freedia says goodbye to her mother, Vera Ross, who passes away after a long battle with cancer. Staying strong has proven to be extremely difficult for the bounce star, who has not only lost her closest friend, but also her number one supporter.
Family and friends come together during this time of crisis to bid farewell to Mama Vera, preparing a full, New Orleans-style send-off with a second line parade. "I'm ready, and then I'm not ready. I have to be strong and keep it together, but the hardest part has yet to come," Freedia says.
