“Gia was a beautiful girl and an unbelieveable friend. I’m shocked and can’t believe what happened to her. She seemed so happy, but never know the demons people are fighting inside. I will never forget her and will miss my friend forever.” Allemand’s friend Vienna Girardi (Season 14 of The Bachelor winner) told TMZ.com
Ryan Anderson is entering his second season with the New Orleans Pelicans, formerly the Hornets.
