Gorillas are remarkably similar to humans, which means they cope with loss the same way we do.

This rings especially true for the remaining gorillas living at the Cincinnati Zoo, who experts say will need emotional support in the wake of the death of 17-year-old silverback gorilla Harambe on Saturday.

Dr. Penny Patterson — co-founder of The Gorilla Foundation — says the great apes could face a "classic sort of human depression" following the tragic loss.

In a powerful note for Motto, the Frozen star penned:

"I felt plagued with a negative attitude and a sense that I was permanently in the shade. I'm normally such a bubbly, positive person, and all of a sudden I stopped feeling like myself. There was no logical reason for me to feel this way. I was at New York University, I was paying my bills on time, I had friends and ambition — but for some reason, there was something intangible dragging me down."

Wow. Luckily, Miz Bell's mom encouraged her to seek help and acknowledged that there was no shame in going to therapy.

Then, why didn't Kristen really talk about her mental health issues until recently? The A-lister noted:

The funny lady revealed that her first memoir, I'm Fine … And Other Lies, will be all about some of her more scandalous life experiences, saying:

"I always told myself I would wait to write a book until I had accumulated enough humiliating mistakes to actually make the read worth your time. I've dated a gay guy, had my hair fall out from not eating enough fat, put family members in rehab, and come very close to spending my life in a Guatemalan prison. I've also accumulated a compendium of knowledge that can save you a lot of time."

The 33-year-old also explained that, even though she looks happy and healthy now, she suffered from an eating disorder for a while, adding:

"My depression affects my appetite, sleeping patterns and overall perspective on life. At times, I have severe insomnia and other times I find myself sleeping too much. I have feelings of hopelessness but experience many moments of absolute euphoria."

The momma-to-be, who is also taking Xanax to treat her anxiety, continued:

"I already love this baby so much. I just fear the thought of motherhood. It's such an overwhelming responsibility and I want to be the very best mommy that I can possibly be."

Court touched upon feeling overwhelmed back when she made the announcement two weeks ago. Luckily though, she's been able to put her feelings down on paper.

While K.R.'s little sis Kyle Richards might not be happy to hear this, Brandi has remained quite close with the blonde following their exits from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. In fact, the two even text on the regular!

Speaking on the reality star's headspace right now, Ms. Glanville revealed:

"Kim is great. She just had knee surgery, her daughter's pregnant. She just sent me a really cute picture from the shower they had."

Aww! So cute. We still can't believe Kim's daughter Brooke Wiederhorn is pregnant at the SAME TIME as her cousin Nicky Hilton!

As for the 51-year-old's sobriety, B.G. happily announced:

"She's doing wonderful and I'm so proud of her. She's sober and amazing."

Phew, what a relief! We just hope the momma got that possible arrest warrant against her taken care of — that's the last thing she needs to deal with as a recovering addict!

Congrats to your health and happiness, Kim! We hope it only gets better from here!
