Gia Carangi: 1983 - 1985.
"Hello book. It is now Nov. 16. I am at my Mom’s again and feeling fuck-up. You see a quite add thing happen… I fell in love with my counselor and I think she just feels sorry for me I hate anyone to pity me it so degrading. Well, I won’t be talking her, it’s hopeless and I must move on I’ve been stuck for to long. I have a girl Rochelle who loves me and I her I am just not ready for tieing up. Girls have always been problem for me I really don’t know why I bother with them." - Gia wrote in her journal in 1985.
"She said she had been a model. She said she used to be rich. I can’t remember if I believed her or not. She said she was a model. She never said she was a big famous model. We figured, oh, like some rinky-dink place. When she first said it, she said, `oh yeah, you’d be surprised. I’ve gained a little weight, but I used to be like this and really beautiful.` Her hair was really short, and she said she looked better with makeup, but she didn’t like doing that, it wasn’t her. The other girls in the store would say, ‘She is pretty, very plain but pretty.’ She said she would bring in the pictures but she never did.” - Stephen Sammartino, a salesman, worked with Gia at `Designs` and would often drive Gia to work.
