NEW ORLEANS -- The model and reality TV star girlfriend of NBA Pelicans player Ryan Anderson has been hospitalized in New Orleans.

According to a statement from her publicist Tuesday, Gia Allemand, a former model and cast member of ABC's "The Bachelor" and "Bachelor Pad," was taken Monday night to University Hospital following "a serious emergency medical event."

The details of the 29-year-old's condition were not immediately disclosed. But according to the statement, Allemand is listed in critical condition.

The statement, issued by publicists for both Allemand and Anderson, says that Allemand's mother is with her daughter, along with Anderson.

The statement also asked "on behalf of the family" for privacy at this time. It said further statements would be released as more information becomes available.
