Gia was working as a Pure Barre instructor in New Orleans and was raising awareness regarding homeless pets.
Vienna Girardi, winner of ‘The Bachelor’ said that Gia indeed was an angel and she has changed so many lives with her beautiful soul. Not only Jake and Vienna, but other ‘Bachelor’ alumni have also expressed their grief over Gia’s death.
Loredana Ferriolo, Gia’s friend said that she had a talk with Gia the day she died and she sounded like she was either crying or was suffering from cold. When she asked her, Gia paused and said that she had cold. What exactly led Gia to suicide remains a big question?
