Gia Carangi

Let's get one thing straight. Something happend early in her life to make her a puzzle that was always missing a big, crucial piece. She search and searched for it, was it a woman, a man, must be neither, must be a drug. She lost herself in heroin and by the time she began to heal, it was too late, the damage was done. She never found that missing puzzle piece, but AIDS had taken over the entire beautiful puzzle. I hope she has found the missing piece in Heaven, I'm sure she finally has.

OP, you actually believe in heaven?

I agree with r5's analysis. She looked femme but was actually butch, and people couldn't handle the disconnect between appearance and behavior. The fashion industry is a cesspool of dysfunction; drugs and eating disorders are [italic]de rigeur[/italic]. The most well-adjusted people are affected by the toxic atmosphere. Gia was a mess and was further impacted by the crap going on around her.

Even as a straight female i can capture the erotic essence of Gia that could draw in even a heterosexual female. She was so beautiful, and carried herself with such confidence that could convince you she was someone you could fall in love with. And as far as Sandy referring to her as an "It" I think that woman has no class at all. Gia was a human being for Gods sake. Couldn't she just say that instead of seeing her as non female or an "it" she was simply captivated by Gia as the person she was.

What a coincidence. I was contemplating starting a Gia thread last night. I have been fascinated with her since seeing the HBO movie with Angelina Jolie and reading "Thing of Beauty". She had perfect features, and a very androgynous look. Her life ended tragically and far too soon. She was one of the first women in the United States to die from AIDS. Does anyone here know her from NYC in those days or from Philly?

Janice Dickinson tried to credit herself for Gia's success, stating she opened the door for brunette and ethnic models.

by Anonymousreply 50September 7, 2008 12:00 PM

Gia came onto the scene in the midst of a blonde washout in the industry. This was the time of Jerri Hall, Cheryl Tiggs and Lauren Hutton. That ethereal sunkist locks look was in.

Gia was considered exotic because of her dark features and her blaise attitude towards life. The modeling agencies were growing tired of the same look and they were desperate to find the "new face".

The legendary Wilhelmina was a genius and a maverick to pick Gia to be her star girl and became a surrogate mother to Gia while she first started out. When Wilhelmina died, Gia just didn't know what to do with herself and that's when her life started taking a serious downturn both professionally and personally.

Angelina gave a wonderful performance as Gia. I was disappointed after seeing the film to look up photos of the real Gia and see she wasn't anywhere near as beautiful or interesting to look at as Angelina.

I suspect the real Gia was self-medicating for some sort of mental illness, maybe borderline personality disorder. She was at the age when it's common for people prone to emotional disorders to have their first major breakdown. She might have pulled herself together and survived if it wasn't for the AIDS.

by Anonymousreply 103September 12, 2008 3:53 AM

First things first: being molested as a child does not make you more predisposed to become homosexual.

I don't know how the rumor of her father molesting her got started. In the one biography of Carangi, "Thing of Beauty: the Tragedy of Supermodel Gia" by Stephen Fried it mentions that Gia was molested (once) by a neighborhood teenage boy, but does not claim her father molested her, at least I don't remember it saying that. It DID say that sometimes when her father came home from work he would "check" on his kids, and she would sometimes wake up to see him sitting on her bed staring at her. She said it made her uncomfortable, but that "nothing happened".

It's probably more accurate that Gia's emotional torment stemmed from her relationship with her MOTHER, not her father. Her mother abandoned her when she was a child to go be with a man, which devastated her. Her mother could never accept the fact that she was gay. Carangi always sought her mother's acceptance and attention, and she never got it, although her mother WAS pleased that Gia became a model (she thought it was a "feminine" career). Someone commented that all her life Gia tried to get attention from her mother, and it wasn't until she was dying with AIDS that she got it.

Carangi was NEVER a "supermodel", and she sure as hell wasn't the FIRST "supermodel" as some people have said. Her career was very brief; it hardly existed at all. In the book "Model: the Ugly Business of Beautiful Women" by Michael Gross, Gia is barely mentioned at all. There are a few comments about her by people who knew her; one of them said Gia "loved to be fucked up the ass with fingers". A model said Carangi was "about darkness and melancholy, which made good pictures". She was called a "trashy little street kid, not unlike Janice Dickerson". The most insightful comment was "she would have been a casualty in any life".

Much has been made of Gia's relationship with Sandy Linter, but her biography indicates that her most important lover was probably "Rochelle Rosen" (real name: Elyssa Golden). Golden was a bi-sexual, drug-addicted criminal from a well to do family. In the book Golden laughingly recalls an incident where she and Gia tied up and robbed a woman (the woman claimed Golden also sexually assaulted her during the attack). Fried was a real pussy where Golden was concerned; in the book he gave her a pseudonym and said in the book's ending that she was consistently testing negative for HIV and was battling liver cancer. Actually Golden had AIDS. She died of it.

I agree that Gia was better looking than Angeline Jolie. Her face had more sensuality and depth and character than Jolie's. There was something THERE; in Jolie's case, there's nothing more than a face with big lips. I did think she did a good job portraying Gia in the HBO movie, even though the movie itself was ridiculous. Mercedes Ruehl as Gia's mother was ghastly; what the hell accent was she trying do? And that "who's the pittiest?" bit they do in the movie is enough to make you gag; I doubt that Gia and her mother were EVER that infantile and dopey.

Poor Gia. She had beauty, but not much else; no education, no work ethic, no discipline, no intellectual curiousity, no self-esteem, no goals, no direction, no family support system. She was obviously deeply mentally ill. As someone who knew her said "she would have been a casualty in ANY life".

"Can someone link a pic of Elyssa Golden? I am curious of what she looked like. When did she die?"

There are two pictures of her in "Thing of Beauty". In both she's with Gia. In one they're getting out of a car; in another one she's kissing Gia on the cheek. You can't tell much about what she looked like from either one. She WAS blonde (Gia liked blondes), short (about 5ft 3 inches) and young (but looked older). She died of AIDS in the mid 1990s.
