Gia Allemand’s mother sits down with Dr. Phil to talk about her daughter’s final moments as she tried to take her life on August 12.
Donna Micheletti broke down in tears while she revealed she was on the phone with her daughter, 29, when she hung herself in her New Orlean’s apartment.
She said she believes her daughter called her because “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.”
“It destroys me but if it made her feel better, then that’s fine,” she added. “I don’t mind dealing with this.”
Allemand’s boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson found Gia, and performed CPR on her before she was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support. She died two days later.
According to police, Gia and her boyfriend got into an argument hours before she hung herself, and she accused him of cheating.
“I’m really mad that she did this for no reason,” Micheletti said. “In 12 hours it would have been fine. I’m really angry.”
On the Dr. Phil episode Jake Pavelka also opened up about Gia. Gia appeared on his season of ‘The Bachelor.’
“I’ve never lost anybody close to me,” the reality star, 35, said. “Gia really understood me. We got really close after the show. We had such a special relationship. I can’t tell you how lucky I feel that I knew her, but I wish it was not for such a short time, because I’ve never met anybody like her.”
This story is just so sad. One thing I have a hard time understanding is why Gia would do that to her mother (keep her on the phone while she hung herself). It just seems so heartbreaking to do that to your mother. Obviously she wasn’t in her right mind – but who kills yourself while your mother is on the other line?? So sad. At least Gia’s mom was able to say goodbye in the hospital. So sad.
This Dr. Phil episode will air tomorrow, Tuesday.
