Even two months later, the world is still in shock that Gia Allemand is no longer with us. The Bachelor star’s family and friends have stayed quiet since her passing until this week when boyfriend Ryan Anderson was asked to speak publicly at his NBA team media day.
“Every day is a challenge,” the New Orleans Pelicans player said. “It helps to be here. My family’s with me. To be here with my teammates really helps a lot, but it’s a roller-coaster.” Ryan continued by stating, “Something like that just doesn’t happen for no reason. And I know that … there’s … a huge plan here.” We can only imagine the heartache he is experiencing along with Gia’s family, friends and fans.
Ryan also announced that a foundation is in the works to help others battling depression and personal issues. “A lot of people are going to be helped from this,” he shared. “We’re in the process of starting something great for her with her family, including my family, too. We have a huge plan to do something great, great in her name that’s going to help a lot of people.”
