Erotic asphyxiation? No way. I think she definitely intended to die. I think the fact that she was so small and had little body weight probably was a factor in the suicide attempt not being successful initially.

All that means is you never watched the Bachelor.

I will say that hanging is a pretty unusual way for a woman to kill herself.
My bff did it that way about 20 years ago. Hadn't really heard of a female doing it that way before then.

And you're the arbiter of who's famous or not? I'm not big into celebrity "lore" but I did see her season of The Bachelor. I knew who she was.

Now all the sports figures who get so much mention in the news ... no idea who they are.

A woman who babysat me growing up- had a daughter who hung herself. She was my favorite of her daughters.
This happened like 20 years ago. I miss her deeply and wish she hadn't done it.

She was known as the hottest contestant ever in Bachelor history.

She was almost chosen as the Bachelorette, but Ali was chosen instead.

This thread wasn't originally placed in the "celebrities" category, I don't think. I think it was in the TV category and was moved here. So for those scoffing at her being called a "celebrity," I don't think the OP was posting it under Celebrities, but under TV. I wouldn't call her a celebrity, either, but she was a TV personality that a lot of people were familiar with.

Now they are saying she hung herself with a vacuum cleaner cord, while she was on the phone with her mother.
