Our poor Gia! We fell in love with Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand during Jake Pavelka's season and loved her even more on the Bachelor Pad, when she and token bad boy Wes Hayden started a seemingly real and quite sane relationship, but now, she's in trouble. CNN reports that Gia Allemand was hospitalized in New Orleans after a "serious medical event." It's still unknown what exactly caused her hospitalization, but Gia, 29, is allegedly in critical condition.
Her family is asking for privacy at this time, and Gia's mother and long-term boyfriend, NBA New Orleans Pelicans star Ryan Anderson, are reportedly by her side. Some of Gia's friends, including Shana Wall from the Amazing Race 12 and beauty expert Melinda Farina have been sharing what they know and according to their tweets, it seems that Gia is in the ICU, barely breathing, on life support.
There's a lot of speculation — was it a car accident? a previous medical condition? did she fall? — but nothing has been confirmed. The only thing that is for certain, right now, is everyone is deeply concerned about this vivacious young woman. Even stone-cold Jake Pavelka tweeted his support for Gia.
From the sound of things, these next 48 hours are critical for Gia. We'll be thinking of her.
