Gia Allemand's mom Donna Micheletti doesn't fault her daughter's boyfriend for leading to her shocking suicide last month.
Immediately following the tragic death of the former Bachelor contestant, 29, fingers were pointed at NBA player Ryan Anderson, who apparently told the reality starlet he didn't love her anymore.
Micheletti says such wasn't the case, and in fact, it is her daughter's dad Eugene Allemand who is to blame.

Donna Micheletti's voice choked with tears as she told Dr. Phil McGraw about her daughter Gia Allemand's final moments as she tried to commit suicide on Aug. 12.
In the heartbreaking interview set to air on Dr. Phil on Tuesday, Micheletti revealed she was on the phone with her daughter, 29, as she hanged herself in her New Orleans apartment.
Micheletti believes that the Bachelor star called her because "I'm the closest person in the world to her and she didn't want to be alone when she left this world. So she wanted Mommy to be there, I guess."

George and Cindy Anthony's highly anticipated interview began airing on Tuesday, and Dr. Phil McGraw wasted no time putting them on the hot seat.
His first question on Tuesday's show: Does the couple, whose daughter Casey was acquitted of murdering their granddaughter, Caylee, believe that she was involved in the infant's death?
"Well, the last one I saw Caylee with was Casey," George replied. "To me, in my mind, that one and one adds up to two. She's responsible for Caylee – that's her daughter."
Pressed by McGraw to elaborate on what his definition of "two" is in this equation, George added, "Casey and Caylee, when I saw them leave on June 16, 2008, [that] was the last time I saw them together. And Casey, again, is responsible for Caylee no matter where she was at or what happened."

Two months after their daughter was acquitted of murdering their granddaughter, Casey Anthony's parents, George and Cindy Anthony, have broken their silence and granted an interview to Dr. Phil McGraw, who confronts them about certain aspects of the case.
In excerpts that aired Monday on NBC's Today show, McGraw asks Cindy about her distraught MySpace message that began "My Caylee is missing," which she posted on July 3, some 12 days before 2-year-old Caylee Anthony was reported missing. Did Cindy know Caylee had vanished?
"Caylee was missing in my heart that day. She wasn't missing physically. I thought I knew where she was at," Cindy says. "I wanted Casey to know how much she was hurting me. And I thought she was purposely keeping Caylee away from me."

An Alaska mother who disciplined her 7-year-old for misbehaving in school by pouring hot sauce down his throat and then giving him a cold shower – all the time videotaping what she was doing so she could be considered for an appearance on Dr. Phil – was found guilty of one misdemeanor count of child abuse by an Anchorage jury on Tuesday.
Standing when her verdict was read, Jessica Beagley, 36, then quickly left the courtroom with her husband Gary, an Anchorage police officer, reports the Anchorage Daily News. In their haste to exit, the two did not respond to reporters' questions.
Anchorage prosecutors said the videotape of the crying young Kristoff, whom the Beagleys adopted from Russia with his twin brother in 2008, was filmed by the couple's 10-year-old daughter. The Beagleys have six children.
Prosecutor Cynthia Franklin praised the verdict, saying jurors "followed the law and they concluded that it is child abuse to hurt your child as an audition for a television show."

Yes, Crystal Harris and Hugh Hefner have called off their wedding – but no, Dr. Phil's son Jordan McGraw is not the reason behind the split.
These stories are "absolutely not true," Harris's manager Michael Blakey tells PEOPLE. "This is pure fabrication. There is no relationship, nor has there ever been one. This is a stupid rumor."
Rumors of a romantic connection between the two first surfaced in March, when Harris and McGraw were reportedly spotted looking cozy at L.A. hotspot Chateau Marmont.
