The Bachelor's Gia Allemand's Mother Opens Up About Being On The Phone With Her During Suicide

bachelor gia allemand mother talks being on phone during suicide

We can't imagine anything more tragic.

When former Bachelor star Gia Allemand took her life, her mother experienced one of the worst moments ever as she was on the other end of the phone when it happened.

As her daughter hanged herself, Donna Micheletti was on the line and now she's opening up about going through this incredible pain.

She spoke with Dr. Phil and reasoned:

"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 just fine…I don’t mind dealing with this."

Such a horrible, horrible loss to go through and in such an excruciating way.

We wish Gia's family and friends the best in coping with this sudden death.

    Excuse me, but suicide is already the most selfish thing ever without involving your mom.

    Am I the only one that finds this a little disturbing? Why did the Mother not try and get her help. Why would you stay on the phone while your daughter is killing herself?? There is either to many holes in this story or it's just twisted!

    Am I understanding this correctly? Gia called her mother telling her she was about to commit suicide and wanted her mother on the phone not to be alone while going through it and the mother agreed to just stay on the phone while her daughter took her life? Tell you what, I don't understand the mother, but now I see why Gia did this. When your own mother doesn't care about you taking your life, you can do this.

    I agree with the other comments that this sounds a bit twisted. The other thing that seems twisted is going on tv to talk about it. I wonder if she did it for the money or for the attention?

    I'm glad I'm not the only one disturbed by this. Idk them or their relationship but I would like to think a mother would make an effort to help her child through whatever pain they're going through. Not just be a bystander & say "I don't mind going dealing with this" What the actual f*ck??

    Re: Shelby Mack – You are so ignorant. This is the most typical ignorant way of thinking. You need to think outside the box.

    As for the mother being on the phone with her, I have to admit it does sound odd… but I'm going to reserve my judgments, because this is just part of a quote, and I know Perez has manipulated quotes before to not tell the whole story. It's possible that her mother had someone on the way there, or was on the way there herself. IDK. I hope that is the case though.

    After we lost my husbands first sister this way I kept thinking how if we had known we'd have gone straight there. I'd have done anything to save her. Same for his other sister. It raced through my head a million times. If only we'd had the chance.

    I thought it was reported that she was found by her boyfriend? Why wouldn't the mother call immediately?? This doesn't seem accurate!

    No sympathy for anyone who commits suicide. There's help everywhere. No one to blaim but herself..so sad she did it because of a man.

    Re: Shelby MackRe: Katy – You two ignorant wastes of sperm are selfish yourselves, as are your parents for not wearing condoms to spare the world your idiocy. Fuck off.

    Re: CourtneySucks – There's something wrong with you if you DON'T think it's selfish. Obviously she had other issues, but it's completely selfish to kill yourself with your mom listening in. And to make loved ones find your body.

    Clearly some of you have never had anyone close to you end their own lives. It's easy to say it's selfish, but if you stop and THINK, you realize these people are in such distress, such pain and nonstop agony that to them, ENDING their lives is the only way to peace. It's incredibly sad and tragic and when it happens to someone you love, you will understand how deeply it hurts. Do not judge people when you can't possibly understand the turmoil they're going through.

    Re: Jasmine34 – Forcing someone to live by guilt-tripping them into a life they hate and makes them miserable makes YOU selfish for only caring about your own self-worth, you stupid bitch. No-one has an obligation to stick around just to please you.

    Re: Jasmine34 – But it's not selfish to expect someone to live through misery to keep you happy though, right? She should not have done that but when you're in so much pain it sometimes just takes over. Ignorant people should be shot..

    Re: Office Drone – I agree, my family has had to deal with several people committing suicide in our family. My grandfather committed suicide,but my aunt and mom don't say he was selfish. They feel sympathy because he was obviously in so much pain mentally. People say "oh just get some help and get over it," but it's not that easy. It's not as simple as people make it out to be, and going to get help isn't an instant cure all.
    People feel sympathy for the physically disable, they don't tell them to get over it. Well, maybe they should realize that it's hard for the mentally disabled too. That it's not weak, it's saddening.

    Guys,
    She didn't know she was committing suicide while she was on the phone with her.
    Gia was on the phone with her crying telling her mom how much she loved her, and then her mom heard Gia choking a little and then heard nothing after that… that is when she called Gia's boyfriend to run over there and see what was wrong… She had no idea Gia was committing suicide.
    I am a very close friend… so I know this as a fact.

    Re: sick_girl – I am so sorry to hear about your grandfather. You and your family sound like very compassionate people. I lost my brother to this last year and I know how devastating it is. Thank you for sharing your story, hearing people's stories helps those of us who have experienced this.

    Re: Shelby Mack
    No, making a new life because we are narcissistic and have our own needs, and expecting them to want to continue to live just to please US - is the most selfish thing. Suicide is sad, it is the ultimate desperate act to escape pain. If the sadness and pain can't be relieved for this person, that is the really deflating thought.

    I hope the comments on here will be moderated. They are not helpful and in some cases could even be harmful.

    For decades Gia has shown signs of illness, the type usu caused by decades of child & adult abuse/neglect (chronic, complex PTSD).

    Suicide "where/how" details always show most of "why". Gia did not call her BF who allegedly hurt/ rejected her - she called ma. Humans causing other(s) to witness suicide is always due to "revenge" - desire to "pay back" the pain they caused to them. Ma's report that Gia chose to call/force her through trauma of witnessing murder - for "fear/company" - is B.S. During an act of suicide there is immense overwhelming pain, despair, & anger — no fear.

    The mom's inabilty(?) to hear Gia's severe despair, her failure to call 911, her bogus "fear call" statement, & desire to quickly "explain" on TV ( filming <2 wks p. death ) — all show:
    (a) the mom has much guilt,
    (b) is in deep denial &/or
    (c) is striving to convince many others of lies, thus making them "true".

    Then mom says (below) "she did this for nothing" even further proving her extreme neglect and total lack of respect/concern of issues troubling Gia.

    sorry mom”s sad, but we cared more about giving Gia some long overdue care/respect (by listing truth/facts).

    RIP sweet gal.

    suicide is not selfish. Aholes that say this I realize are trying to bully people into not doing it but that doesn't work.. you are bullying someone who is in pain beyond anything you will every ever be in so kindly.. STFU



  25. 25

    There is sooo little help for people who are suicidal. The only thing there truely is are suicide hotlines which I don't know if they are even helpful. I fyou tell your family you get locked up and locking you up and forcing meds is not a solution for people like this.. they need to be talked down and cared for and feel safe. You can't tell your dr because they lock you up.. calling a stranger who doesn't really care is just embarrassing. If you can get help for your depression then perhaps you have the personality for it but many don't.

    Worst thing ever for that Mom and cannot help but continue to wonder why a lovely girl would take her own life. Seems to be happening too often what is wrong in this world!!

    I don't really know exactly what happened here…but it's odd to me that her mother stayed on the line with her knowing she was killing herself. I mean maybe she didn't know at the time? It's weird and I don't really get what happened. But regardless I do feel sympathy for her family and loved one's. It's incredibly painful to lose someone you care for so suddenly.



  28. 28

    Am I the only one who finds this story completely bizarre? Her mother was on the phone with her as she hung herself? WHAT?!?!? And her mother is "just fine" with it? I'm sure she didn't literally mean she us fine with it but my god, I cannot even imagine being on the other end of a phone call knowing your loved one's intentions. Sad, but weird at the same time.

    I had an uncle who committed suicide and given his circumstances I most likely would have done it myself if I were in his situation. However i did see the devastation it did to his parents and remaining siblings. He died a physical death but the family died an emotional death that many of them never recovered from before they died. suicide is ugly business. I hope all people involved find some peace and resolution to their troubles.

    Re: charliechaplin@ – Where are you getting this information? They don't just "lock people up" anymore. In fact, going through this with loved ones myself recently, even if you feel they might NEED that kind of supervision it's extremely HARD to get it. You have to have done some real serious damage already to get "locked up". You can't force anyone into anything against their will. You can't force a loved one to seek professional help and you can't just lock them up and medicate them. At least not here where I live. They have to make a choice to get help and to get better, and everything goes slowly and safely in steps.

    I agree with you 110% Courtney. SELFISH.

    I'm wondering if she called her mother 'while doing this' without the mother actually knowing what was going on until it was too late…maybe it was a typical…'hi mom I'm sad' call until the phone dropped…NO mother would stand by and do nothing if she knew her child's intentions. Judging on a partial 'quote' is unfair in such a devasting situation

    Re: Shelby Mack – you are a selfish moron for making that statement. suicide is not selfish it's an incredibly depressed person thinking there is no other option out of their pain.



  34. 34

    Re: Jasmine34 – People do not think about what will happen to other people when they kill themself. They are in SO much pain all they can think of is ending for themself AND the people around them. They feel like everyone would be better off if they were gone. It is NOT about "ha ha… so and so will have to handle this!…" It is a personal decision. Have you had to deal with a suicide of someone close to you???? Have you read the suicide note of anyone who was close to you??? It is horrible for eberyone involved.



  35. 35

    Re: charliechaplin@ – You are SO correct!



  36. 36

    Re: CourtneySucks – NOBODY is forcign anyone to live through anything. It is not like she told him "stay with me or I will kill myself." That was never out in the media if that is what happened. I am sure some people try that angle. Suicide is NOT about expecting anyone to live their life a certsain way for you. It is about not being able to cope with YOUR life the way it is and not knowing how to change it or get past it or make it better.

    Re: Shelby Mack – Shelby, no,you're not excused. When people are so pained and so desolate that their only escape is death, it's not selfishness. How dare you If you've never been exposed to it, count your blessings instead of sitting in judgement. Ms. Micheletti, I hope you can take solace in knowing that you were obviously your daughter's last thoughts. And what a tribute it is to you that you were the person who brought her into this world and the one she wanted w/ her when she left it! Peace be w/ you.

    Re: Shelby Mack – Shelby, how dare you make such a statement. What do you know about someone being so desperate, so desolate, so hopeless and pained as to seeing the ONLY option left is to end his life? Ms Michleletti, I hope you will be able to take comfort in knowing that YOU were your daughter's last thought. You brought her into the world and she loved you so much, that she wanted YOU to be there for her when she left it! And you were. Obviously, YOU were her comfort to the end. I wish you peace.

    Re: Katy – how could you be so uncompassionate?
    It takes a lot of unhappiness and pain for a person to want to end their life
    she was in a very dark place and saw no hope
