INSIDE EDITION is learning new details today about the final hours of the former contestant from TV’s The Bachelor who took her own life.
Friends say she was devastated at the prospect of yet another failed romance. She was rejected by bachelor Jake Pavelka and had suffered a string of other heartbreaks. It was just too much to bear.
Allemand went to the condo she shared with Anderson in New Orleans. She emailed friends to say farewell, then tied a vacuum cleaner cord to the staircase and wrapped it around her neck.
She actually called her mom and right in the middle of their conversation, hanged herself, according to published reports. Her mom told police that the phone simply went silent.
The suicide is on the cover of the new US Weekly. The magazine reports that when Ryan Anderson discovered her 30 minutes later, he screamed, "Why Gia? Why!" He attempted to give her CPR.
A 911 operator told Anderson, “Don't stop this rotation until someone takes over.”
Anderson confirmed, "Don't stop until the paramedics come."
Sadly, Allemand could not be saved.
She documented the last weeks of her life on Instagram which included a night out with friends on August 5th, snuggling with her puppy, goofing around with her boyfriend.
We now know that behind her cheerful smile, she was desperately unhappy. She was just 29 years old.
