Disturbing new details are emerging in Gia Allemand’s suicide. The 29-year-old former “Bachelor” contestant, who hung herself last month with a vacuum cleaner cord, was on the phone with her mother as she took her life, reports ABC News on Sept. 9.
Gia’s mother Donna Micheletti will be appearing today on the fall premiere of the "Dr. Phil" show. In the exclusive interview, Micheletti opens up about her daughter’s recent suicide and reveals the two were on the phone together as she hung herself.
The devastating phone call, one that any parent just cannot fathom being a part of, left Donna “destroyed.”
“I'm the closest person in the world to her and she didn't want to be alone when she left this world. So she wanted Mommy to be there, I guess,” Micheletti said to Dr. Phil.
“It destroys me, but if it made her feel better, then that's fine,” she added. “I don't mind dealing with this, but I'm really mad that she did this for no reason. In 12 hours, it would have been fine. I'm really angry,” says Micheletti.
Allemand allegedly took her life over concerns that her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, was unfaithful to her. Anderson found Gia unconscious shortly after she hung herself. She was taken to the hospital, but efforts to revive her failed.
The two had reportedly argued on Aug. 12, with Anderson allegedly telling Gia, “I don't love you anymore,” – Perhaps the words that sent the beautiful Allemand over the edge.
Micheletti called Anderson after the devastating phone call. Anderson arrived at Gia’s house within 20 minutes and found her unconscious with a vacuum cleaner cord “wrapped around her neck many times.”
