Looks like Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka don't have a monopoly on The Bachelor drama. Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick are dealing with their share.

Last season's Bachelor stars are getting married on TV next month. With that comes plenty of drama. And possibly DeAnna Pappas. And Melissa Rycroft.

Molly and Jason got engaged last fall, and agreed to tie the knot on TV in a two-hour wedding special airing March 8, presumably for millions of dollars.

But will it be worth it? The couple is already fighting over the guest list, according to a friend, as ABC wants to turn the wedding into a Bachelor reunion.

Producers want Melissa Rycroft - Jason’s #1 choice, who he dumped for Molly after the season - and former Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas to be there.

Jason and Molly of The Bachelor

Molly Malaney reportedly isn’t happy about ABC's wedding meddling.

“ABC is basically controlling the guest list, and they’re inviting former [Bachelor stars] Molly and Jason don’t even know,” the insider says. “Molly is fine with that."

"However, she’s not especially thrilled about Melissa attending her wedding, because she thinks it will turn into a circus.” Which is probably what Mike Fleiss wants.

In any case, DeAnna Pappas, who negged Jason on The Bachelorette season finale, tells In Touch that she’s looking forward to the magical, staged event.

"I’ll be there with my boyfriend, Stephen,” she says, declining to give us a last name. “I'm so happy that Jason found Molly, as they really are the perfect couple.”

We agree. We're sure Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney will get through these pre-wedding jitters. With Chris Harrison officiating, how can they go wrong?

The Bachelor hopeful Vienna Girardi is portrayed as pure evil by the other aspiring Jake Pavelka trophy wives. We always felt this was a little bit unfair.

If the allegations made by the new issue of Us Weekly are true, however, that's a different story. Maybe Ali Fedotowsky and Co. are onto something.

The Bachelor, Vienna Girardi

Vienna Girardi is a apparently an unemployed former Hooters waitress who withdrew the last $5,000 from her ex-husband Josh Riley's bank account.

The reason? To pay for breast implants, obviously. Hey, when you're a topless model for some random calendar, you do what you gotta do, right V?

Oh, and he was deployed in Iraq with the Marines at the time, during which he also says she cheated on him. Jake Pavelka, you'd better beware!

Vienna Girardi: Even worse than portrayed on The Bachelor!

"She took every bit of his money," Vienna's former mother-in-law Gale tells Us. "I know for a fact that the boob job was the first thing she had done."

What's more, when Josh Riley returned from his tour of duty (he was injured in Iraq during an explosion), Girardi had moved on ... and not told him.

Vienna "locked his belongings in storage and would not tell us where they were," Gale said, noting that they were married 10 months after eloping.

Poor guy also discovered that while he was in Iraq, "she slept with one of my buddies I was deployed with. I'm 99 percent sure she cheated on me."

Adds Riley, "Marrying her was a mistake." Sounds like it, man!

Any advice for Jake, who picks her on the season finale, according to Bachelor spoilers we've read? "I'd rather not comment," Riley said. "I'd like to forget."

Ali Fedotowsky hates Vienna Girardi so hard on The Bachelor. Chris Harrison, the show's venerable host-pimp, says that attitude may come back to bite her.

On this week's episode, the Ali vs. Vienna war raged on. Ali in particular just can't deal. But Chris warns that the two ladies need to get over their bickering.

Otherwise, Jake Pavelka may just shun them both!

"Vienna and Ali are two of Jake's favorites," Harrison said. "The funny thing is, those two are beating each other up so bad, Tenley is just skating through."

"[Tenley Molzahn] is so sweet and maybe she doesn't outwardly show it, but I think she realizes, 'Hey, you guys just keep on fighting amongst yourselves!'"

Ali Fedotowsky and Vienna Girardi look so nice here, but ...

Ali Fedotowsky, Harrison adds, "has to forget about Vienna and worry about herself." He says she needs to realize, "'Enough with the bickering, cattiness."

"If I'm going to do this, I need to be with Jake. If Jake likes [Vienna], then so be it. I can't judge why she's here, and I just need to take care of myself.'"

Adds Harrison, "The quicker she realizes that, the better she will be."

Ali and Vienna Girardi "think that they're so different, but they aren't," Harrison adds. "I mean, their personalities, on the surface, appear to be different."

"But they are really caring, loving people. They think, if Jake likes Vienna or if Jake likes Ali, he can't possibly like me, but in actuality they don't realize how similar they are because obviously they don't get to see how they are on a date."

Who should Jake pick among his final four?

Vienna Girardi has The Bachelor all but wrapped up, if last night is any indication. Jake Pavelka is wrapped around her finger and the other girls are at their wits' end.

As always, THG staff members endured Jake's latest trials and tribulations on The Bachelor to recap all the action for you with our exclusive point system below ...

Tenley Molzahn gets the first of three one-on-ones with Jake. She tries to act very squeaky and cute. Plus 5. But Minus 7 because so does Jake, and he's a dude.

Corrie punks Ali by saying she and Vienna will be going on the two-on-one. In reality, it's Gia and Vienna, but Ali has a full-on hissy fit in front of Vienna. Minus 3.

Jake's #1 wife requirement is that she have his back, no matter what. That and Chris Harrison orchestrating unrealistic dates for him the rest of his life. Plus 4.

Nice turtleneck, Jake. Minus 2.

Jake Pretends to Look Cool

Okay, Jake, a little to the left... perfect! Stand there and act natural!

En route to her date with Jake (and third wheel Gia), Vienna Girardi pronounces the Castello vineyard "castle." Who says you can't judge a book by its cover? Plus 8.

Jake on dating two girls at the same time: "It's almost awkward." Not unlike our reaction every time he's on screen and tries to ad-lib off the cue cards. Minus 3.

Upset that Jake and Gia are alone together, pathetic Vienna desperately wanders through the estate in an attempt to find and cock block her "boyfriend." Plus 9.

Later, the girls go to bed ... until Vienna slips out for a rendezvous in Jake's room. A rendezvous Jake didn't know he would be attending. Obsessed much? Minus 4.

Jake on Vienna: "I definitely had dirty thoughts." Cringe. Minus 13.

Gia Allemand makes a strong impression. Team Gia/Tenley! Plus 3.

Corrie's date involved the two of them sitting silently in a rowboat, waiting to make a move. At least the outdoor scenery was nice during this nonsense. Minus 6.

Vienna Girardi (The Bachelor)

This is Vienna Girardi. The other girls hate her so hard.

His date with Ali Fedotowsky? Not much better. We get it. You live in San Francisco and it's awesome. You hate that Jake likes Vienna too. Just STFU you catty ...

... okay, that blue dress is looking damn good on her. Even.

Why do the girls talk about Vienna 24/7 and rarely say what they like about Jake? Ali is the worst, and it's all growing tiresome. Minus 5, and Minus 6 more for the filler quotient this week, as this could've been condensed into one hour easily.

But at least that meant time for a host-pimp fireside chat, so Plus 3.

LOL at Vienna's hair during the rose ceremony. WTH is that? Plus 8.

TOTAL: -11. SEASON: +13. Roses: Tenley, Ali, Gia and Vienna. Gone: Corrie.

Who should Jake choose among his final four ladies?

Vienna Girardi is pure evil. Or so The Bachelor producers would have us believe.

In a promo for tonight's episode, the Floridian is once again cast as the villain competing against sweet Corrie, Tenley and Co. for Jake Pavelka's heart.

This has been the common theme of late, even though Vienna Girardi hasn't done anything that objectionable. She's kind of an airhead, but harmless.

Rumors of her dating someone at home while on the show have been leaked, along with topless photos of her modeling. The other girls hate her so hard.

Is she really an evil, manipulative bitch, or is this just Mike Fleiss' way of riling up viewers so we're astonished when Vienna receives the final rose?

We think it's pretty clear. Here's the promo for tonight's episode of The Bachelor:

Vienna Girardi is the least-liked girl in The Bachelor house. That's an understatement akin to stating that Kim Kardashian is famous for no reason.

But 30-year-old single mom Ella Nolan, one of four women Jake Pavelka dumped on Monday's episode, says maybe Vienna isn't all bad. Maybe.

"The show is ultimately his decision," Ella, a Tennessee hair stylist, said Thursday.

"What he sees in Vienna, none of the rest of us were there on their date when they were alone. She's different when she's with him than she was in the house. I can see him just not taking the girls word for it when he is not seeing it on his own."

  • Ella Nolan
  • Jake and V

Ell Nolan says she never viewed Vienna Girardi or any of the other women as competition for Jake Pavelka. That's very mature. No wonder she got kicked off.

"I didn't get catty or jealous of any of the other women," she says. "I didn't really see that there was that much drama because I tried to stay out of it."

Vienna Girardi, a 25-year-old Orlando native, "is one of the women that if she thinks or feels a certain way, she comes out and says it," adds Ella.

"I think it kind of rubbed some of the women the wrong way in the house, but then she would always apologize for it later. In the end I liked her."

If she had to pick, Ella says she would choose Tenley Molzahn for Jake Pavelka, but thinks Gia and Ali also formed strong connections with him.

Notice she's not advocating a Vienna-Jake romance despite being polite. No word on whether V was really dating someone else while on the show.

Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, one of the most controversial (and successful) couples in the history of The Bachelor, are getting married in just over a month.

ABC will be televising it in a two-hour special.

Luisana Loreley Lopilato de la Torre and Michael Buble

The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding, will air Monday, March 8. We're fairly sure that's one week after the current season finale, which would make sense.

The big wedding special for Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney will also show the bride's dress fitting, planning for the day, bachelor/bachelorette parties, etc.

Past participants of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette will be on hand, which probably goes with the territory when Mike Fleiss gets to plan your nuptials.

The Bachelor's 0-13 marriage steak is about to come to an end! Well, technically not, as Molly Malaney didn't receive Jason Mesnick's final rose ... but close enough!

The Bachelor wedding is only the second such event in the franchise's 19 seasons. The Bachelorette star Trista Rehn married Ryan Sutter on TV in 2003.

Jason proposed to Molly Malaney in New Zealand, the site of the infamous March 2009 season finale where he initially chose Melissa Rycroft instead of her.

He soon broke up with Melissa and asked Molly for another chance on the After the Final Rose special. She said yes, and they got engaged in October.

Mesnick first became a franchise fixture as runner-up on DeAnna Pappas' edition of The Bachelorette. He then became The Bachelor's first single dad.

Everyone on The Bachelor hates Vienna Girardi.

We're starting to understand the reason (or two reasons) why the only one who's opinion matters, star Jake Pavelka, has taken a liking to her, however.

ABC's official "bio" for Vienna Girardi, who has quickly become the enemy of every other girl left on the series, lists her as a "marketing representative."

Looks like they conveniently left out some of her free-time pursuits ...

  • Vienna Girardi Topless
  • vienna

Vienna Girardi sure can strategically wear a scarf, and clean up nice.

The above pic, unearthed by some site called Hollywood Life, is from a pinup calendar sent to over 2,500 clients and friends of C.O.D. Trees, Inc. of Oviedo, Fla., in 2009.

We have no idea what any of that means. What we do know is that it will surely fuel the fire for V's haters (as if rumors of her dating someone else weren't enough).

One wonders how Jake will feel when he finds out about this.

The Bachelor spoilers we've read project Vienna as one of the final girls standing. If that's true, we can see this (topless!) bomb being dropped on Jake soon enough.

You know Mike Fleiss is salivating over this ... possibly in more ways than one.

Jake Pavelka's quest for a life partner continued last night, and The Hollywood Gossip staff endured The Bachelor to recap it for you with our exclusive point system.

Awarding and deducting scores as we deem fit, here's THG's take on last night's episode, which saw a very serious Jake narrow his field of contestants to five:

Chris Harrison announces that he will now be pimping the girls up and down the California coast. Bachelor road trip, RV style. Lots of screaming ensues. Minus 5.

The girls not in Vienna's RV start bashing her immediately. Plus 3.

First stop on the road trip? Wine country. Jake on the vineyard: "There are fields of grapes in all directions." One typically will see that in a vineyard, yes. Minus 4.

Tenley Screams

The first 15 minutes of the episode summed up in one image.

Gia and Jake spend their critical one-on-one date in the vineyard playing hide-and-seek and spin the bottle. Nauseating, but at least she's really trying. Plus 4.

Jake Pavelka confides that in 9th grade, his nickname was "Mr. Dateless." Minus 6, because there's no way Jake or any 9th grader has ever been called that.

Group date time. This mostly consists of Jake rolling around in the sand with a squeaky, flirty Tenley Molzahn. Doesn't look like the worst time ever. Plus 7.

Minus 2, though, for how he lamely says "it's time to get down n' dirty." Jake, stop reading the cue cards and acting like a stiff for five f*%king seconds.

Tenley Molzahn gets a rose. Ali is going to poison Vienna pretty soon. Plus 5.

The 2-on-1 date is going to be "so difficult" for Jake, but he's "going to do what my heart tells me." By his heart, he means Chris and Mike Fleiss. Minus 9.

Jake Sets Rose on Fire

Jake tries to act like this scene was totally spontaneous.

Jessie totally pulls a Jake Pavelka on Jake Pavelka, who is now in Jillian Harris' position. Jessie "warns" Jake about Vienna 'cause she cares SO MUCH! Plus 6.

Besides how much Vienna supposedly sucks, the big narrative producers are beating into our skulls this season is that Jake is, like, really serious about finding a wife. As opposed to other Bachelor stars who are there for what reason? Minus 11.

To that end, Jake boots both girls after the 2-on-1 date. Deep in thought, he then SETS THE ROSE ON FIRE! Plus 12 for that staged, but hilarious moment.

At the rose ceremony, he calls time out! Minus 5, because you shouldn't be able to do that. He wants to cut an extra girl. Understanding pimp Chris agrees.

The final rose goes to ... Vienna Girardi! Plus 8 for dragging that inevitable result out as long as humanly possible to mess with us - and royally piss off Ali.

TOTAL: +1. SEASON: +24. Rose recipients: Gia, Corrie, Tenley, Ali and Vienna. Sent packing by Jake Pavelka: Ashleigh, Jessie, Kathryn, and Ella.

Things our wives said:

  • "I really hate how much they scream."
  • "[Gia] looks like a high-maintenance airhead, but she's so pretty."
  • "[Vienna] needs to lay off the dark eye shadow. Her clothes are really bad too. I mean, where do you even BUY some of those outfits?"

Former Bachelor star Matt Grant, who starred on the show's 12th season and got engaged to Shayne Lamas for like 12 seconds, has a new show in the works.

Its name? Pimp My Bride! Sadly, we are serious.

"[It's] an organic follow-up to The Bachelor," the British financier said, adding that he first conceptualized the series after finishing filming The Bachelor back in 2008. "It's bascially about the groom being in control of the wedding."

No couple from The Bachelor has ever had a wedding, of course (minor details) but maybe Jake Pavelka can pimp Vienna Girardi on the series premiere!

Matt Grant is returning to reality TV. Do you care?

In addition to producing Pimp My Bride, Grant, whose engagement to Shayne Lamas was quite short-lived is also considering taking part of another new show.

"They've asked me to possibly do the Bachelor Pad show," he said. "It's like Big Brother Bachelor with all the Bachelors in a house. I've thought about doing it because I'm obviously not famous anymore and it would give me 15 minutes!"

Well, at least he's up front about that. Gotta give him credit there.

Here's an enduring image from Matt's season of The Bachelor ...

Shayne Lamas Pic

Shayne was really, really, REALLY excited about getting a rose.

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

Shayne Lamas

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
