The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, who received his final rose just months ago, have broken up. This is shocking, as they seemed perfect together.
NOTE: The second sentence above is not true at all.
Many viewers of The Bachelor groaned when Jake picked Vienna on the season finale, given the rumors about Vienna's past and her personality ... in general.
Looks like the 84 percent of you who said he should've picked Tenley Molzahn and the 80 percent of you who said he and Vienna wouldn't last are vindicated!
Rumors about Vienna Girardi - partying, drugs, secret boyfriends, marriages, betrayal, topless modeling and plastic surgery - surfaced throughout the season.
She was bad news and we all knew it. Just not Jake.
A FAIRY TALE MOMENT: And a very short engagement.
Now 2-for-19 in producing marriages (Ali Fedotowsky's rumored choice is discussed at length in The Bachelorette spoilers here), it's another blow for the franchise.
You knew it was coming this time, though.
Jake Pavelka did his best to defend her, and his decision to marry her, but just over three months later, something apparently went terribly wrong between them.
What specifically happened, we don't know.
“Jake and Vienna have split,” says Janice Lee, a rep for the commercial pilot and professional airhead. “They appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time.”
No reason was given. After Pavelka was eliminated from Dancing With the Stars in late April, he spoke spending time with Girardi to "focus on our relationship."
Guess it was only then that he took some time to pause, reflect, look back on the last few months and realize that he was engaged to freaking Vienna Girardi.
I'm totally on ...
