Variety reports that model and reality show personality Gia Allemand died Wednesday in New Orleans one day after an apparent suicide, her publicist confirmed today.
The model-actress, who appeared in the 14th season of ABC’s “The Bachelor” and the first season of the show’s spinoff “Bachelor Pad,” was found unconscious by her basketball player boyfriend, New Orleans Pelicans power forward Ryan Anderson, in her home on Tuesday. Allemand was taken to the city’s University Hospital.
