“Bachelor” star Gia Allemand shocked everyone when she committed suicide last week. She was a happy-go-lucky girl, who was always smiling when she was in front of the cameras. However, her desire to have a family and be married must have taken over, as friends and sources revealed that she committed suicide because she wasn’t engaged. According to a new Wetpaint Entertainment report published on Aug. 17, “Bachelor” star Allemand’s boyfriend is now expressing guilt after learning that his lack of actions could be the reason behind her suicide.
"It's really tough," says Anderson's former NBA teammate Greivis Vasquez to TMZ. "I have no words to describe how sad it is." Anderson issued a general statement along with Allemand’s family, but has yet to reveal how he feels in interviews and such. One can imagine that he just needs to spend some time, dealing with what has happened. "I knew Gia — she was a great girl," Vasquez says. "It's just hard."
After the suicide was made public, reports started surfacing that Allemand had expressed frustration with Anderson over the lack of a proposal. And while no one wants pressure in terms of relationships, one can imagine that he feels guilty for not realizing how serious she was.
"I know [Ryan's] feeling guilty, but he's such a great guy — strong, Christian guy," Vasquez says. "We gotta support him, and we gotta be there for him. He's going through a tough time right now, but I'm sure he'll be back stronger," he says. "He is one of my best friends in the league — I love him so much."
It sounds like Anderson will be dealing with this for a while.
