This can't be a good sign for Matt Grant and Shayne Lamas.

A former star of The Bachelor, Andy Baldwin, and his girlfriend, Donald Trump ex-wife Marla Maples broke up, he tells the Washington Post.

The Bad News is Coming

Lt. Andy Baldwin's recent move to Washington, D.C., to take a job as an advocate for Navy Medicine, put a strain on their relationship.

"The big move coupled with the long distance relationship wasn't working for us so I decided we were better off as friends," Baldwin says. "We were friends, it got romantic for a little while, but we're just friends."

Marla Maples and Andy Baldwin met late lasst year and spent the New Year's and Easter holidays together in Hawaii, where he had been living.

He was engaged to Tessa Horst, who won the final rose on The Bachelor, but like all other relationships on that show, it didn't last long.

They may have called off their engagement, but Lt. Andy Baldwin â€" star of The Bachelor â€" and the final-rose recipient, Tessa Horst, were spotted at the Ford Ironman Triathlon in Hawaii.

According to the Honolulu Advertiser, Andy Baldwin completed the 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.2-mile run an impressive 43rd place overall.

Tenley From The Bachelor

"It was amazing," he said. "Tessa ran down the chute with me and I picked her up and carried her across the finish line and gave her a kiss. My parents were there, and my little sister. They've never seen me do an Ironman before. It was a very special moment."

Andy Baldwin and Tessa Horst. Engaged? No. Kissing? Yes.

This was their first public appearance since their marriage postponement. The couple called off their engagement this month (to the surprise of no one), but saying they're still "very much in love and committed to our relationship."

Guess we'll have to stay tuned... to Brad Womack, Andy Baldwin's successor on The Bachelor. Now this Austin, Texas, bar owner looks like a real catch.

The Hollywood Gossip is on its game.

Unlike a certain lazy, yet funny Sports Gal.

Bachelor Buns

When Andy Baldwin chose Tessa Horst on The Bachelor a week ago Monday, we waited around for the Sports Gal's take on it. And waited, and waited. At long last, we got fed up and had to post our own recap.

Three days later, her Bachelor blog apparently goes live, when it was old news and noticed by no one (with the possible exception of Bill Simmons).

Anyway, for you hard core fans, we've got her post up.

Finally.

Below, we present the Sports Gal's long-awaited take on the passionate love affair shared by Andy and Tessa, the demise of poor Bevin Powers and the rest of the drama of The Bachelor season finale.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I wasn't there when Bill watched the Celtics lose the lottery, but he couldn't have been more crushed than Bevin Powers after she got dumped on the final episode of The Bachelor.

I'd describe what happened, but I was too busy covering my face with my hands. It was a big blow to the confidence of tattooed divorcées everywhere.

They may never trust the intentions of an uptight, dorky Naval doctor again.

Earlier in the show, Bevin exchanged I love yous with Andy Baldwin and told the camera, "There's no chance in hell that he'll leave me without a rose in the last ceremony."

By the end, they were whisking her sobbing ass away in a limo as she whined, "This s--t happens to me all the time. This is the story of my life."

He's not a prince, heir to some huge ass tire company's fortune or a mediocre backup quarterback like The Bachelor contestants who came before him.

But Andy Baldwin was nonetheless a knight in shining armor as he knelt down and offered an engagement ring to Tessa Horst Monday night.

Ben, Lindzi, Horse

Lt. Baldwin - a Naval doctor and undersea diving specialist - and his cute future bride are now public with their love. Finally.

The Sports Gal's favorite subjects recently gave an interview discussing what it's like getting to know each other on reality TV, along with what's on tap for them.

Us Weekly: Congratulations! You both must be so thrilled after having to keep your relationship a secret since the show wrapped in March. What do you have planned now that America knows that you are in love and engaged?
Andy Baldwin: We've been walking around New York and I've been screaming it at the top of my lungs! It's not a secret any longer! We finished the show months ago and to watch it all over again has been hard - especially on Tessa - to have all that drudged up.
Tessa Horst: It's a huge relief to have it over. It's been great moving forward with Andy since the show's been wrapping, but it was hard that everyone around us was watching it as if it was present. We're really excited to move forward from here.

Us Weekly: You no doubt learned quite a bit about each other during the course of the show, but what have you learned about each other since?
Andy Baldwin: We've learned a lot! We've seen each other four times and talked to each other over the phone [while the show was airing]. We've definitely said how much better we know each other now than we did [on the show]. The risk we took getting engaged is getting better and better. There are some things Tessa has found out about me...

The Sports Gal sure is taking her sweet ass time writing her freaking recap of The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman.

While we'd love to wait for her, as no one recaps reality TV like she can, our celebrity gossip readers demand better than her needless delays.

Ben Flajnik, Engagement Ring

The Hollywood Gossip prides itself on fast, in-depth coverage, whether it's the latest celebrity arrest, dating rumors, trip by Britney Spears to Millennium Dance Studio or episode of your favorite shows.

So good riddance to Bill Simmons and very funny, very lazy wife. We've written our own damn recap. Let's get down to business.

Tessa Horst, a 26-year-old San Francisco social worker, accepted the final rose - and a marriage proposal to boot - from Andy Baldwin in last night's finale of The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman.

Andy Baldwin's proposal to Tessa and her acceptance of it marked the first time in four seasons and only the second in its last seven that The Bachelor ended with its bachelor proposing to his final female choice.

Sorry, Lorenzo Borghese.

"I've always imagined this day, and this is beyond my wildest dream... I met a woman who makes me feel so happy and so amazing," Baldwin gushed.

"I want to say to you Tessa... Will you marry me?"

Andy, a 30-year-old undersea medical officer stationed in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, asked Tessa Horst from bended knee at the conclusion of last night's special two-hour finale.

"Yes!" answered Tessa, who put her hand to her mouth and whispered, "Oh my God..." as Andy slipped a diamond ring around her finger. "This moment is perfect," she said.

In choosing Tessa, Andy dispatched of Bevin Powers, a 28-year-old Palo Alto, Calif., native who became the 24th and final bachelorette to be eliminated from Officer and a Gentleman's pool of 25 wives-to-be.

The drama on the 10th season of The Bachelor is peaking as Andy Baldwin cut the field down yet again, and it's time for The Hollywood Gossip's weekly recap of the always-enthralling Monday ride.

As usual, ESPN's Sports Gal will do the honors.

Ben, Lindzi, Horse

The wife of ESPN's beloved sports scribe, a.k.a. Bill Simmons, offers her thoughts below on last night's events and the three remaining would-be Mrs. Baldwins, and how his choice for the final twosome came as a shock. Not!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I really enjoyed the "The Bachelor: Hawaii."

The show started with Andy Baldwin wearing his white Navy uniform, walking around Pearl Harbor and telling us, passionately but seriously, "It's not about yachts, it's not about sports cars, it's about being a U.S. Naval officer."

The camera showed him from various angles as Baldwin looked very serious and pretended the cameras weren't there. It looked like he was filming a photo shoot for a new Andy Baldwin cologne line called "Pearl Harbor."

The girls arrived one at a time (first Bevin Powers, then Danielle Imwalle, then Tessa Horst) and Andy didn't greet them with his usual dorky energy because he was busy feeling serious.

The drama on the 10th season of The Bachelor continues to intensify and it's time for The Hollywood Gossip's weekly recap of the always-enthralling Monday night fiasco that is Andy Baldwin's search for everlasting love.

As usual, ESPN's Sports Gal will do the honors. The wife of ESPN's beloved Sports Guy, a.k.a. Bill Simmons, offers her thoughts below on last night's events and the final four aspiring brides... and how she likes none of the above.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABC needs to give The Bachelor a mulligan during the course of the season. It's only fair. Poor Andy Baldwin spent the sixth episode visiting the Final Four's hometowns and not one of the girls seemed like a promising match.

It's amazing that Andy narrowed the field from 25 to four without finding a prospective wife, but this whole season has been amazing.

Andy Baldwin confirmed this by saying the word "amazing" 10 different times during this week's show. That was pretty amazing.

Here's what happened:

Before introducing Andy to her parents in Seattle, Bevin Powers, a.k.a. the Ankle Faker, finally admitted to Andy Baldwin that she's ... gulp ... divorced.

Andy looked just as confused and overwhelmed as he did a few weeks back when he was on Jimmy Kimmel Live, only if he had also pooped in his pants.

Thank God that doctors follow a specific set of rules for every medical emergency. After all, if Andy always looked this confused in a pinch, there would be a lot of dead Navy divers.

The 10th season of The Bachelor rages on, and it's time for The Hollywood Gossip's recap of last night's episode (#5). As usual, The Sports Gal will do the honors.

The wife of ESPN.com's renowned Sports Guy offers her thoughts below on the many aspiring Mrs. Andy Baldwins, so let's get right down to business.

Jason Mesnick-Melissa Rycroft Email: Part IV

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

[Bill Simmons] made a top-10 list of revelations you should never bring up if you're trying to win over The Bachelor. I thought it was funny so I'm passing it along. He's enjoying this show way too much. He calls it the "I have to tell you something ... " list...

  1. "I have herpes."
  2. "I have a kid."
  3. "I can't have kids."
  4. "I used to date (fill in any NBA player over 6-foot-3)."
  5. "Not only am I in a Girls Gone Wild video, I'm on the cover."
  6. "I can't legally come within 100 yards of my ex-boyfriend."
  7. "I lost my virginity to Joe Buck."
  8. "I don't really enjoy sex that much. I just don't get it."
  9. "When we meet my mom, just be prepared, she's a very heavy woman."
  10. "I'm divorced."

This list was created immediately after we found out that Bevin the Ankle Faker is divorced. She claims that she wanted to tell Andy Baldwin sooner, only she "never had a chance."

Suuuuuurrrrrrrre.

Once Bevin revealed this news to the camera, I quickly revised my final two. She's done and she knows it - I think she was in denial.

She's had a look on her face like she slept with her best friend's fiancée and has to tell her the night before her wedding. She's freaking out.

During one scene, she told Amber Alchalabi that it bothers her that Andy is falling for multiple girls, especially ones who are 23 and haven't had enough "life experiences" to be ready for marriage.

It is time, yet again, for The Hollywood Gossip's recap of last night's episode (#4) of The Bachelor on ABC.

As usual, the Sports Gal will do the honors. The wife of ESPN.com's The Sports Guy (a.k.a. Bill Simmons) does a tremendous job of blogging the adventures of Andy Baldwin, so why mess with a good thing.

The drama only intensified last night as Andy Baldwin bid farewell to not one, not two, but three aspiring trophy wives who don't seem to mind that this Navy diver and doctor has no sense of humor whatsoever.

Guess with abs like these, who needs jokes? Anyway. Take it away, Sports Gal!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On Jimmy Kimmel last week, Andy Baldwin came off like someone who had two glasses of champagne at an office party, forgot to eat anything, then ran into his boss and tried to be outgoing and crack jokes, only he came off like a rambling, brain-damaged goofball.

Jimmy Kimmel tried to rescue The Bachelor, but finally just started teasing him at the end. He apparently never had a chance to test his comedy chops growing up in Amish country.

It is time, yet again, for T.H. Gossip to break down last night�s gripping episode of The Bachelor: Officer and a Gentleman on ABC.

Oh, who are we kidding. We're going to do the usual thing and let the Sports Gal do the honors. The wife of ESPN�s beloved Sports Guy (a.k.a. Bill Simmons) does a tremendous job, as we know.

Shayne Lamas Pic

She recapped episode 2 brilliantly last week, and the drama only intensified last night as Andy Baldwin bid farewell to more aspiring trophy wives. Without any further delay, we turn it over to the Sports Gal!

We made history on The Bachelor this week! The show started with a drill sergeant waking up the girls and dragging them out for calisthenics. Bill thought the drill sergeant looked like Dick Bavetta on steroids. I'm not sure who he is, but okay.

I was more shocked that none of the girls was wearing makeup during an HD broadcast. They should've had a follow-up show with the girls watching this show in HD. I guarantee half would cry, two would pass out and the rest would flee to the MAC counter.

But that wasn't the history-making part. Running through a set of tires, Bevin wrenched her ankle and ended up with a displaced fracture plus a rose from a guilty Andy. Here was the history-making part:

The other girls became jealous because Bevin got a rose and 1-on-1 time with Andy Baldwin at the hospital. Now others may start maiming themselves for more time with Andy. We might see Tessa throw herself down a flight of stairs within the next three shows.

Obviously, Andy wasn't too upset because he made his first group date at the mud baths. Not a lot of highlights here except that BBBD ("Big Boobs/Bad Dresser") was in heat and kept rubbing mud on Andy as an excuse to molest him.

She's a tramp. Bill thinks there's an 80 percent chance she has a sex tape floating around out there and claims he has never Googled this to find out for sure. I don't believe him.
