Ciaobella and Gregor were married for nearly a decade, but their marriage was falling apart, as Gregor was having an affair with Sigrid, one of the models. After learning about the affair, Ciaobella turned heel and planned to kill Gregor, and as part of her plan, the evil Ciaobella utilized her electrical knowledge and rigged the microphone stand at the party, which led to Gregor's death.
However, as it turned out, Gregor had been planning to kill Ciaobella, doing so by poisoning her energy drinks, as he didn't want to lose half of the company to his wife once their marriage reached 10 years. During Gregor's funeral, Ciaobella performed the eulogy and gave one last kiss to Gregor, before she keeled over and later died. As to why it took so long for Ciaobella to succumb to the poison, it was because she was bulimic.
