Gia Allemand: Friends and Family Say Goodbye at the Reality Star's Funeral

Originally posted 08/22/2013 03:30PM

Gia Allemand was laid to rest Thursday morning in Manhattan.

On a side street in the Chelsea neighborhood, a group of close friends and family began to gather in the rain outside the Trinity Grace Church, preparing to say goodbye to the beloved Bachelor contestant, who died in a suicide earlier this month.

Waiting photographers snapped pictures as a car pulled up to the curb outside, which was lined with floral bouquets. The sight of a large sign that read "Gia" in flowers prompted some mourners to break down in tears.

Allemand's boyfriend, basketball player Ryan Anderson, was one of the last to arrive. He entered the church with Allemand's family, remaining stony-faced as pallbearers carried the coffin inside. Once inside, he sat in the front row, as did Allemand's mother, Donna Micheletti.

Being a contestant on The Bachelor means being wooed by a handsome man on extravagant dates in exotic locations, a televised pursuit of everlasting love that brings joy – but also for many, very public heartbreak.

Gia Allemand, who vied for Jake Pavelka's affection on season 14 of the show, "was fully capable of handling it," says former Bachelor and Bachelor Pad contestant Michelle Money, who saw Allemand on August 5 in New York. "It's so sad to think looking at her in New York, I thought she was okay. But now I look back and think, wow, is there something I could have done or said?"
