Former "Bachelor" contestant Gia Allemand died Wednesday, two days after an apparent suicide attempt, a statement released on behalf of her family said. She was 29.

Allemand was discovered unconscious Monday night by her boyfriend, NBA player Ryan Anderson, at her home in New Orleans, the statement said. She was rushed to University Hospital, where she remained unconscious and on life support.

The family said the model and reality TV personality was taken off life support Wednesday and she died "peacefully with her mother, boyfriend and other lifelong friends by her side."

that sucks, i was really hoping this would have a happy ending. i'm curious how this happened, that comment by a friend might be a clue though when she says "never know the demons people are fighting inside." makes it sounds like a drug overdose or suicide attempt or something. anyways anderson must be so upset right now, what a nightmare for him.

They're saying it's a suicide.

They're saying it's a suicide.

That's what I read also. Makes sense since they're were no real details of what had happened, along with the friend's response. Still sad nonetheless.

Tough loss. It probably was a suicide, but it still sucks. All of NOLA loved her. I thought her and Ryan were an amazing couple. Sometimes a person's shell is too tough to see through, as like they are smiling on the outside and you cant see they're hurting on the inside.

RIP you beautiful person!

Sucks for Rhyno. He's as good a guy as it gets.

In before all the tools come in and say they have no sympathy for her because she was rich and chose to end her life :rolleyes:

Sad to hear. Ryno still one of my absolute favorites. Gotta be very hard to handle.

:(

And sadly, RLundi is right, only a matter of time before people come in here to blast her :sigh:

If anyone deserves pity its her family because they lost someone they loved. Its too easy to swallow pills or hang yourself. You leave nothing but sorrow for your family.

And Ryno himself... just imagine how he feels... one, to see his love hanging herself, and then all the unanswered questions afterwards, and the guilt that it may have been his fault

exactly. I don't know if she has parents that are involved in her life, but all those unanswered questions deeply affect them for years to come. Suicide is the most selfish thing someone can do. Its your life, but your parents gave you life, its disrespectful to say you don't want it.

I have no problem feeling bad for her too. Her life was -- at least in her head, and that's often a true and real disease -- hurting her so much that she felt suicide was the only escape. I feel bad and have pity for all the parties involved. Suicide is always a very, very sad thing.

Really shocking. I have known of Gia for years. She used to date Carl Pavano (NY Yankee). Then she was on the Bachelor and Bachelors Pad (twice). She was always looked at as so beautiful by guys and girls. Always wanted love and seemed to finally have it. If I was given 10000 guesses I would have never guessed Gia. I'm sorry she was in so much internal pain. I feel for her, her family and Ryan.

Some people just don't realize how hard mental depression is on some people. In some cases it maybe a selfish thing and in some cases people try to get better seek help and just can't deal with it.

R.I.P. Gia

I hope Ryan can get pass this.

i agree with this, people who commit suicide aren't thinking clearly. they have mental illness and whatever is going on in their heads just eats away at them and robs them of their life/joy. finally it just becomes too much for them to take and they need to get away from it somehow. oftentimes it's from past experiences/trauma that changes them and they have this cloud hanging over them no matter what where they can't think of anything but their issues. they begin to think they'll never be normal again and finally give up hope. i feel bad for all involved including her, we don't know what she's been through.

Sad story R.I.P Gia, depression/anxiety is a b***h and can take over anyone weak or not, its a disease.

Sad to hear. She was by far one of the most beautiful women in the bachelor series. Seemed like a fun girl too. Can't imagine why she chose this

I use to be pretty cold with suicide... Other users have made valid points in the past from the likes of BDawk TO Hawk when we have had these arguments about the mental issues that come along with depression and on down the list.... I was stone cold about they do not deserve to RIP and they should go to hell and only the family suffers... The family suffering is true but I have turned a leaf on this subject and read up about it and am just shocked at how bad people are and how this seems like the only way out. The Brain is to important and so fickle and to blame her for this even though her family is suffering is wrong on so many levels... Nobody knows the shoes she had to walk in or what she was dealing with... Money/Fame is not the end all to happiness.

I sincerely hope she rests in peace and my thoughts are with her family and friends. Please keep it respectable in here people.

Don't call her selfish. She obviously didn't wanna live even with all the money and success so it was her choice to leave this world. If you are an adult and don't wanna live then you can end it! She was obviously suffering from a mental illness that none of us can understand and it was tearing her apart to wake up and live life everyday. If you don't know mental illness then you don't get it. I have a good life, money, looks, great job, health and people who love me but I suffer from a disorder that makes me wish I would just get killed or my life would end sooner rather then later. I take meds, I've seen doctors ect... but at the end of the day I only live so I don't hurt anyone else. She may have had a similar disorder but couldn't justify living over hurting people who love her.
