After Gia Allemand committed suicide, her mother Donna Micheletti appeared on the Dr. Phil show. She talked about her daughter’s suicide. She gives two reasons why Gia took her own life. She gets into dark areas during her menstruation cycle and Gia’s dad called her stupid and dumb and told her never to call him again. Toss into the mix the turmoil relationship she was having with her boyfriend, Ryan Anderson. The fights and the unstable hormonal levels caused Gia to have an emotional breakdown.
According to Hollywood Life, Gia was on the phone with her mother while she was committing suicide. Gia said that she was tired of being hurt and she couldn’t do it anymore. She was tired.
During that time, Donna tried to uplift her daughter’s mood. She told Dr. Phil, "I was trying to tell her, 'I love you too hunny, you've been my whole sunshine. You're my little princess. We can do it together. We can make it.' I really didn't think she would've done that and she did it while I was talking to her and I didn't know."
There were times during the conversation that Gia told her mother that she was considering on moving back to New York. She even bought a ticket for her mom to come visit her in New Orleans the next day.
Donna said that the phone went silent while she was talking to her daughter, and she knew that something was terribly wrong. She tried to call Ryan on another phone while staying on the line with Gia. After 10 minutes, the call with Gia disconnected. Donna sent a text to Ryan asking him to check on Gia. When Ryan went to the house, he found Gia unconscious, while sitting on the steps of a spiral staircase. The cord of a vacuum cleaner was wrapped around her neck.
Donna told Dr. Phil, “I’m really mad that she did this for no reason. In 12 hours, it would have been fine. I’m really angry. I could have spoken to her and the fear would have been gone. She had a fear of being rejected. She wanted to make sure Ryan couldn’t hurt her first. It destroys me but if it made her feel better, then that’s fine. I don’t mind dealing with this.”
This wasn’t the first time that Gia talked about committing suicide. Each time, Donna would take her to the hospital so they could check her. Gia would always tell her that she wouldn’t do something like that.
