As their tumultuous and utterly predictable split continues to play out in public, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi will discuss it Monday on The Bachelorette.

The duo sat down with their former host-pimp Chris Harrison to talk about the split for the July 5 segment, and let's just say it's as ugly as it is contrived.

A sneak peek of the interview reveals no big Bachelorette spoilers - just dueling accusations and blaming one another for the demise of a fake relationship.

Asked why they made the breakup so public, Vienna said: "Either way, our relationship had been public. No matter how we broke up, this had to happen."

Right. There was no other option.

"The world was going to want to know," she said. "I know Jake and I knew as soon as we broke up he was going to run to a media outlet and tell his side. I just wanted to make sure I had a voice also. I haven't had a voice this entire time."

Jake responds ... well, presumably. The clip we have here doesn't show that part, but he reportedly gets so pissed at her that makes a fist at Vienna at one point.

Girardi's accusations are consistent with what she's been saying all along, though - that he's a fame whore who misled her. Dude doesn't even put out!

There's also the rumor that Jake isn't into girls, but we'll leave that alone for now. Follow the jump for a sneak preview of the couple on The Bachelorette ...

Will Jake Pavelka be showing us what he never showed Vienna Girardi or his previous ex? Yes ... if Daniel Nardicio, V.P. of marketing at Playgirl, gets his way.

The magazine has extended Jake an offer, he says.

Jake hasn't commented on this yet, but Nardico says "We're determining the value of a shoot with Jake, who exemplifies our classic American guy at Playgirl."

"Most people realize that reality show fame is fleeting and largely a dead end for actors, so this is a way to extend that fame, and make a nice profit off of it."

"It's obvious he likes the limelight, and I intuit that he looks good naked," adds Nardicio of Pavelka, who's going through a nasty breakup with Vienna Girardi.

However unfounded they may be, the recent slew of rumors that Jake Pavelka is gay can only help enhance his appeal to this particular magazine's readership.

What would the publication pay for the Pavelka package? Nardicio says Jake will receive "definitely six figures, but where in that range I am still determining."

How does one go about determining that?

"I have a large number of factors that I add together to figure out a model's worth," says Nardicio. "I guess like a c*** calculator." Words fail us at this time.

Brought on to revamp Playgirl, Nardicio did so in a big way with the recent Levi Johnston and Ronnie Kroell issues, both of which have been huge sellers.

His next subject: Skid Row musician and Celebrity Rehab cast member Phil Varone. "He's a man among men where it counts, if you get my drift," Nardicio says.

Wait ... we don't follow.

Is Jake Pavelka gay? Personally, we don't see it, but there are now two separate reports of this surfacing, and crazier things have turned out to be true.

We'd rate this rumor as less believable than reports of Al Gore trying to sex up Molly Hagerty, but at the same time, we wouldn't rule it out fully yet.

Despite his nice public persona, The Bachelor star weaves a web of lies, according to Vienna Girardi ... and Tanya Douglas, who dated Jake from 2008-09.

"Jake did the same thing to me!" says Tanya, claiming Jake promised to marry her but never followed through on it. "He is a slippery, slimy con man."

Here's where the gay rumors come in. As with Vienna, Tanya Douglas says Jake withheld physical affection from Tanya ... after sleeping with her first.

"He told me he had to abstain from sex for religious purposes until we were married," she recalls. "It was weird, 'cause we had already been intimate!"

WEB OF LIES: Did Jake date another man, as Star claims?

Instead of cuddling Tanya, Jake "locked himself in the closet and pray in the dark," she reveals. "I'm all for prayer, but in the closet?" In the closet ... fitting.

Douglas says that the big phony didn't even go to church regularly and "used religion as an excuse when it was convenient for him." Vienna can attest.

The religious excuse was many he used for refusing sex with Vienna, or so she claims. Fellow Bachelor contestants think they know the real reason.

"I think he has gay potential and definitely gay tendencies," a Bachelorette contender, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said of the hunky pilot.

Says Paul Rosseau of The Bachelorette: "He didn't want to have sex with a beautiful girl and never really tried with the other girls ... Nothing personal, Jake!"

Richard Mathey from the same season said, "I'm not sure if he is gay, but it seems he has no experience with the types of women that are on the show."

Friends of Vienna's also have conflicting theories about his sexuality. "Vienna told me, 'I don't think Jake is into girls,'" a friend of Vienna's told Radar.

Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi's emotionally-charged reunion is still days away from hitting the small screen on The Bachelorette, and it's already ugly.

Taped last Thursday, the former couple's combative, instantly infamous joint interview is set to air July 5, and some new, heated details have emerged.

According to a new ABC press release, Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka acknowledge that their romance is unfixable, and proceed to exchange insults.

Bachelor host-pimp Chris Harrison can only look on in awe.

The gist: Girardi tells Jake Pavelka he's a "liar" and a "fame whore," while Pavelka says she's jealous and undermines him. The Bachelor stars argue about who initiated the breakup, and Girardi denies she cheated with Gregory Michael.

At one point, the airhead Floridian bursts into tears and stomps off the set, while reports from witnesses say that an enraged Jake makes a fist at her.

Another insider who observed the confrontation told Us Weekly that Pavelka "couldn't get a word out - it was very reflective of their relationship."

Mediator Harrison often had to tell Girardi, "Vienna, let him talk." But "Vienna was on the defense," a source adds. "She was trying to play victim."

As we see it, we're the true victims in all of this.

Who says nothing good can come out of the sad unraveling of a fake relationship? For Jake Pavelka, his recent "heartbreak" led to some stirring acting scenes.

In an upcoming episode of Drop Dead Diva, Camille Guaty plays a reality star dumped on live TV by a Bachelor-like cad - played by the former Bachelor star.

In the climactic scene, Pavelka's character Toby must choose between two women, and Guaty's character, Wendy, goes into hysterics when he rejects her.

Pavelka had the perfect inspiration to play the villain, of course - he shot his scene last Monday, the same day he split with alleged fiancee Vienna Girardi.

They broke up amid rumors she was cheating with Gregory Michael.

For Jake Pavelka, it was art imitating life. Kind of.

"Jake literally discovered the shocking news about Vienna while on set, moments before shooting this scene for the first time," Guaty tells Us Weekly.

As a result? "He did an incredible job!" the actress gushed.

Pavelka's real-life heartbreak, she added, "gave him something to work with ... I just told him to stay focused and use what happened towards the scene."

Seems like it worked, according to his counterpart:

"Let's just say that when we were discussing this scene beforehand, Jake found it really difficult to tell me that I wasn't the one," she said. "And after he heard the news from Vienna, it seemed like second nature to him ... I guess we have Vienna to thank!"

Ahh, don't we all, Camille. Don't we all. Just hope he doesn't make a fist at you or any of your Drop Dead Diva co-stars ... things could get ugly fast.

Vienna Girardi is supposedly scared of Jake Pavelka. He says he'd get engaged to her all over again. Another day in the aftermath of the Breakup of the Century.

After a taped reunion interview that reportedly involved Jake making a fist in anger, a Vienna source says she is afraid of Jake and doesn’t want to go near him.

While ABC claims that no one was ever in physical danger, witnesses say the scene was ugly, and Vienna Girardi wants nothing to do with the guy ever again.

“I am afraid of Jake because he is verbally abusive and controlling, I'm afraid of what he might do next," she told a close friend. “I just want to be left alone."

The friend adds that Vienna "just wants a normal life" and is allegedly "starting a regular 9-5 job in marketing" today, which she's really "looking forward to.”

Marketing what, her own topless pics and celebrity news interviews?

It's been reported that one reason for the breakup was that Jake refusing to put it to her, but he was all over Vienna when it came to publicity about the couple.

No wonder he says do it all over again - the two were all over the news!

While he's hurt by Vienna's alleged cheating, "I'm getting all the Tweets and support from fans," he says. "You guys are going to get me through this. Thank you."

"My goal in life is to make decisions that minimize regrets. I don't regret anything I've done," he said on Good Morning Texas. "It's been the most amazing ride."

Yes, folks, it's been an amazing ride ... broken fake engagement and all.

"I've gotten to do things that most people never even dream of doing, and I sit here [thinking], 'What have I done to deserve this?' Somebody pinch me."

We'd love to, Jake. Got a vice handy?

Reuniting for the first time since the end of their fake relationship, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi faced off in a joint interview on Wednesday night.

For a segment to air next month on The Bachelorette, of course.

Vienna Girardi Cheated!

The taped reunion between the fame-obsessed pair, whose breakup is becoming more bitter by the day, quickly got out of hand - and nearly violent.

According to reports, Jake Pavelka "exploded in anger" at Vienna Girardi and at one point turned toward her and pulled his arm back, making a fist.

It was a shocking display that left Vienna in tears, and left witnesses wondering if Jake might be getting ready to straight up whomp his ex-fiancee.

At another point, Jake told Vienna to "shut up" three times.

FAKE COUPLE, REAL DRAMA: That's Jake and Vienna for you.

The Breakup of the Century is dominating headlines this week, prompting ABC to capitalize by secretly reuniting the warring duo for footage that will air July 5.

They had to know what was coming (possibly because they scripted it).

“Jake was visibly angry,” a source said. “At one point he wheeled back and I thought he was going to throw a punch. He pulled his arm back, his hand in a fist.”

Despite obvious tension and drama, a longtime friend of Jake's insists: "Jake would NEVER hit her, EVER. End of story. The guy doesn't even use swear words."

ABC also denies that any punches or near-punches were thrown. "The atmosphere was emotionally charged," the network acknowledged in a statement, but:

"However, and contrary to reports that have surfaced, at no time was anyone physically in harm’s way, nor was anyone ever threatened with physical violence.”

As Bachelorette host-pimp Chris Harrison tried to keep things from getting heated, Pavelka stood up in frustration, asking pointedly, "Will you just let me finish?"

"He couldn't get a word out, it was very reflective of their relationship," says a source, who adds that host Chris often had to tell Girardi, "Vienna, let him talk."

We'll know for sure July 5, but she supposedly storms off in tears.

"Vienna was on the defense. She was trying to play victim."

As if the utter transparency of Jake Pavelka's fake relationship with Vienna Girardi weren't obvious enough, the two will clash - gasp - on The Bachelorette!

The two will square off on the July 5 episode, but The Bachelor star isn't holding back in the meantime, slamming his lame ex-fiancee for her poor conduct.

Flash Mob Style

"There was a serious lack of respect in the relationship," he tells Extra regarding rumors of Vienna's infidelity." I would like to think that she didn't cheat."

The pilot said he was "shocked" when Girardi sold her story. "What did I ever do to you that you would go and sell your story to a magazine," he asked.

"Is being famous that important to you?"

LOL. Said the man who's starred on three, going on four reality shows. Sure, Vienna is a total fame whore ... but she's not the one who won't put out.

Jake Pavelka milks the end of his fake relationship for all it's worth.

Jake adds angrily: "If you don't want to be with me, that's OK. But there's a very amicable way to split relationships up and she did it the wrong way!"

Pavelka hilariously insists that Girardi resented his rising celebrity, including stints on Dancing with the Stars and the Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva.

"Fame changes people," he told Extra's Mario Lopez. "She feels Dancing with the Stars should have been hers, but in my view, I felt like it was ours."

"She started to get insanely jealous over these wonderful things happening in life. I saw her frustrations, so I tried to include her in everything I did."

Naturally, despite the hearbreak, Jake Pavelka will reunite with Vienna Girardi on The Bachelorette to generate more publicity set the record straight.

"Hopefully, it's gonna be some closure," he says. "America was there and stood with us at the birth of our relationship. I think I owe it to them and to myself and Vienna to let everybody be there at the end of it. So everybody understands it was real."

Frankly, Jake, if you owe us anything, it's to give it a f*%king rest. The birth of your relationship? You got engaged on THE BACHELOR and were cast on a different reality show THE SAME NIGHT as the season finale. The agenda is quite clear.

Pavelka will also show up on this summer's Bachelor Pad as a judge. Hey, you can only sit at home and cry about a contrived breakup for so long.

Whose side are you on in the Breakup of the Century?

Since it was so obvious The Bachelor stars Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi were a terrible match, few were caught off guard by their breakup this week.

The way their entire "relationship" (term used more loosely than Vienna's morals) has played out since The Bachelor finale has us wondering, however:

Vienna Girardi, Lee Smith

Has the whole thing been a sham?

Sources close to the pair say Vienna's quotes in Star are true, and Jake is a prude who hasn't been intimate with her in months. But there's more ...

"They haven't even been a real couple for a while," an insider tells E! Online, adding, "They've been pretty much playing it up in front of the cameras."

Why do such a thing? "Because they both want to be famous, and it's good for their reputations and the reputation of the show [The Bachelor]."

While we're not willing to suggest flat-out that Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi staged their relationship, this theory might explain ...

  • Why Vienna had an interview lined up with Star to announce how she painfully, gut-wrenchingly broke up with Jake ... a whole day earlier.
  • The couple's over-the-top PDA and previous reports that Vienna is a stalker, especially while Jake was shooting Dancing With the Stars.
  • The pair going out of their way to prove to the world they were really in love, then reap the rewards (big PR) of a very public breakup.

Here's an addendum to that last bullet point. ABC says in a statement that "Jake and Vienna will be doing a joint interview for ABC to air shortly."

More Jake and Vienna on TV. Who would have guessed.

In his cover story in People, Jake Pavelka continues to play the victim, saying there were "trust issues" between himself and his fake fiancee. The star adds:

"I'm still the same guy that believes in love. What I've learned is, it doesn't matter if you love somebody – that doesn't fill 95 percent of the relationship."

So five percent of a relationship is love? What's the rest, fake photo ops and trying to get on every reality TV show? Great priorities. No wonder he won't put out.

The Bachelor stars Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka ended their engagement this week, and the reason(s) behind the split continue to produce amazing gossip.

Not shockingly, the Breakup of the Century dominates the celebrity news tabloid circuit this week, with both sides' accusations garnering provocative headlines.

In an interview with Star, Vienna says she was "bawling the entire time" when she penned her breakup letter to Jake, and reveals her motivation for leaving:

He wouldn't put out.

During their first month together, they couldn't keep their hands off each other, Vienna Girardi claims. But soon enough, they developed major intimacy issues.

"We haven't been intimate in months," she says. "More than four months. At first his excuse was that he was fasting. The second excuse? He didn’t feel like it."

Jake is a Monster

Jake Pavelka is a monster, supposedly. A prude monster.

"The third excuse was that he felt that I wouldn’t understand that he wants to wait until marriage, even though I told him I’d support him," continued the sad Vienna.

"The last excuse was that we fight so much I push him away. I was like, really? Which is it? I have been living six months with a guy who won’t be intimate with me!"

In public, however, it was a different story.

"He kisses me only if we’re on a red carpet or if cameras are there,” she says. “Besides that, I have to ask for a kiss, and if I do he’ll pucker his lips and just peck me."

"I’m like, that’s how I kiss my grandmother!”

The funny thing is that we always pegged Jake for this type of guy. He tells a very different version of events to Us, however, which you can read after the jump ...
