Earlier Monday, Rowe said  she would attend the star-studded event, but then had a change of heart.   In a statement to, Rowe’s attorney said:  “Although Debbie had originally planned to attend tomorrow's Staples Center memorial service, we have concluded with Debbie that she will not be attending.
