Mary Delgado and Byron Velvick: It's Over

by at . Comments

After five years together, former star of The Bachelor Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado have split up, the sixth season star confirmed late Wednesday.

The couple got engaged on the show's November 2004 finale, where he proposed in Spanish so her parents, watching at home, could understand.

The Women Talk it Over

That was the high point for them.

Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado first showed signs of a trouble the night after they appeared on a Bachelor reunion episode in November 2007.

She was hauled off by police for assaulting her fiance, punching Velvick in the mouth and being heavily under the influence of alcohol at the time.

Mary was arrested again last November for public intoxication.

Byron Velvick and Mary Delgado had a great, sometimes violent run.

Shortly after the incident, Velvick maintained that they were still happily together, and that "they are just a real couple going through real things."

"Just because you met on a reality show, got engaged on this incredible setting doesn't mean that we're Prince Charming or Beautiful Princess."

NONE of the 13 stars of The Bachelor have married their final rose recipient, although Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney are angling to be the first.

We have a feeling they will officially break The Bachelor curse within the next year or so. We have a hunch there'll be a TV wedding somehow, too.
