Last week, the news broke that Donna Micheletti, the mother of Bachelor Pad star Gia Allemand, would be appearing on the Dr. Phil Show to discuss her daughter’s tragic suicide. The episode, which will serve as the season premiere of the “Dr. Phil Show,” is set to air tomorrow, September 10 and, from the looks of this sneak peek clip, is going to be completely heartbreaking.
Gia’s mother, who was on the phone with Gia as she committed suicide, will discuss what really happened that day.
“I’m the closest person in the world to her and she didn’t want to be alone when she left this world,” Donna tells Dr. Phil. “So she wanted Mommy to be there, I guess…I’m really mad that she did this for no reason. In 12 hours it would have been fine. I’m really angry.”
Also joining her on stage will be Jake Pavelka, who was ‘The Bachelor’ during the season Gia appeared. Of course, he will confess that he never stopped loving her, blah blah blah. (Personally, The Ashley thinks this was no place for Jake to stick his mug in. He wasn’t in a relationship with Gia, and hadn’t been for years. It’s kind of ridiculous.)
However, Jake claims that he had a special spot in his heart for Gia after all these years.
“Gia really understood me,” he tells Dr. Phil. “We got really close after the show. We had such a special relationship.”
