Bachelor alum Gia Allemand has been hospitalized in New Orleans, her publicist announced in a statement on Tuesday, Aug. 13. Information is scarce, but the reality star is said to be in critical condition.

"Gia Allemand was taken to University Hospital, New Orleans last night following a serious emergency medical event, the details of which are currently not known," the statement reads. "She is listed in critical condition."

"Ms. Allemand's mother is with her, along with her long-term boyfriend, NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Pelicans," the release continues. "On behalf of the family, we kindly ask for privacy at this time."

Allemand, a 28-year-old model, appeared on season 14 of The Bachelor, which aired in 2010 and featured Texas pilot Jake Pavelka. She made it to the final three before being eliminated in the second-to-last episode. After her elimination, she joined the season one cast of Bachelor Pad.
