“Worst day of my life. My mom was the absolute best!” she wrote. “I still can’t believe she isn’t here anymore. The week before she died I kept getting flashes of my mom in a hospital and a casket. It was so freaky. I just told myself I was crazy. I got this same flash the night before she passed. … I love my mom and I feel her presence. I’m trying my best to get better but this isn’t easy. #ForeverGlenda”

Charmaine went on to say that she spiritually felt something was wrong the day her mother passed away. A scene from the emotional episode, showed a pregnant Charmaine breaking down after getting a call from her dad that her mother’s “heart stopped.”

For the longest, reports did not explain the cause of death, but, now, in the same trailer, Charmaine’s co-star Ryan Henry confirmed it was from a heart attack.

Charmaine’s fans immediately flooded her post with support and their condolences.

“So many Prayers sent to you  🙏🏼💞 said for you wow thanks for sharing such an intimate moment of your Life she’s watching with you and over all of you♥️”

“The night before she unexpectedly passed away she said ‘I still can’t believe my baby is having a baby!’ I’ll never forget those words,” said Charmaine. “This has been an emotional roller coaster, but I’m blessed to be bringing life into this world. #BabyBey”

Worst day of my life. My mom was the absolute best! I still can’t believe she isn’t here anymore. I would hope that nothing in my future will compare to losing my mom. I literally wouldn’t be able to handle it. My mom lost 4 sisters before the age of 50 and I always had this horrible obsession with being worried about the day my mom would leave. One day I told myself that I can’t fixate on the day my mom dies, I have to enjoy her while she is here. The week before she died I kept getting flashes of my mom in a hospital and a casket. It was so freaky. I just told myself I was crazy. I got this same flash the night before she passed. We got on the phone that night and did our regular girl chat. Everything was fine! She was so excited about me approaching my 20 week ultrasound. One day while pregnant I said to myself that new life could mean someone close to me will die n something told me it was my mom. Again I’m just thinking I’m trippin. When I was in college depressed about a boy or how hard life was on my own, my mom would call me and say “something is wrong I can feel it” we were always spiritually connected! Just because she isn’t here physically that doesn’t change things. I love my mom and I feel her presence. I’m trying my best to get better but this isn’t easy. Only thing I ever wanted was for her to be a grandma. Something we looked forward to! She still is a grandma though. The best kind there could be. A guardian angel grandma. So many more things I want to say but I’ll save it for another time. I love you mom! Tomorrow will be a tough one to watch (every week has been for me) but I’m watching for my mom! Tune in for Glenda tomorrow @blackinkcrew At 8/7 cst on @Vh1 #ForeverGlenda
