The Hollywood Gossip is saddened to announce the 100 percent inevitable news that Jason Wahler has called off his engagement from Katja Decker-Sadowski.

"I have decided to end my engagement, and it's an amicable split," the former star of Laguna Beach and The Hills star told celeb news mag Us Weekly.


Wahler - who dated Lauren Conrad on both shows - says they're "still good friends" but he and Katja Decker-Sadowski decided to make a clean break.

"We agreed we are both just too young to be considering getting married right now," added Wahler, 22, who had been engaged since August 2007.

On the plus side, this sad split should allow the reality TV staple more time to deal with the many lawsuits and court dates he has on his busy schedule.

Katja Decker-Sadowski will not be marrying Jason Wahler. Surprised?

The couple did seem on track to tie the knot until recently.

Last year, the 21-year-old University of Southern California student and tennis player was singing a different tune, wanting to wed "sooner rather than later."

"But my parents want me to finish school first and that won't be until 2010," said Katja Decker-Sadowski, 21. "So we want to do it probably a little bit before my graduation, but I will need my parents' help to plan the wedding!"

Wahler is currently shopping around a dating reality show called Jason and the Cougars. Yes, we're serious. How has VH1 not picked that up already?

Despite being renewed early for a second season, Whitney Port and her new reality TV series, The City, are a bit hard up for ratings this winter.

Count Jason Wahler among those not watching - and surprised about MTV's early commitment to a sophomore campaign for The Hills spinoff.

He's not sugar-coating his feelings, either.

"I can't believe it got picked up for a second season," Jason Wahler said of The City.

"I thought it was kind of a terrible show. I mean, I like Whitney, but they are trying to drag her show out way too much. I didn't know that many people who were watching [The City] to begin with, so for it to be renewed is shocking."

Ohhh, snap!

Incidentally, Wahler's comments were made at last night's premiere of Jordan Eubanks and Brian Drolet's 2 Dudes and a Dream. Jordan and Brian used to date Heidi Montag and Audrina Patridge, respectively. Reality TV losers of a feather ...

Not surprising: Wahler - who dated Lauren Conrad on both Laguna Beach and The Hills - is currently developing a new reality show of his own. We're sure this television event will be a huge ratings hit and critically lauded, as well.

Quite surprising: It will follow his life with Katja Decker-Sadowski, a USC tennis player who hasn't dumped his ass in nearly two years of dating! Talk about incredible.

Jason Wahler and Katja Decker-Sadowski are getting married.

That they're engaged is nothing new - but it could be a sealed deal within a year, according to the former Laguna Beach star's bride-to-be!

"We want to do it sooner rather than later," said Katja, a student at USC.

"My parents want me to finish school first and that won't be until 2010. So we want to do it probably a little bit before graduation, but I need my parents' help to plan the wedding!"

Added Jason Wahler (who used to date Lauren Conrad):

"And if her parents don't agree, it's a no-go! So we are looking, realistically, at 12 to 15 months from now.

Katja Decker-Sadowski and Jason Wahler: Still engaged and happy.

Jason and Katja are pitching a reality show - reportedly called 22 and Taken - and the wedding "will be a part, but it's not the focus of the show."

Even if they've got another year to go, he and Katja Decker-Sadowski have already gotten into marriage mode by moving in together.

As we reported earlier this week, Jason Wahler, who served as resident jerk on MTV's Laguna Beach, then later reprised that epic role on The Hills in order to further torment girlfriend Lauren Conrad, has landed his own reality show.



Well, we've dug up some more information on it. The show, entitled 22 and Taken, will shadow the recovering alcoholic, his fiancée Katja Decker-Sadowski, "and their close circle of friends as they prepare for their eventual wedding."

That's according to Jason's own rep, Siri Garber.

This is a marked contrast to how Jason Wahler first described the show, which he said was going to primarily follow his "career" (we could not make up something that absurd) and keep his relationship with Katja "mostly private."

Maybe Katja Decker-Sadowski wants a taste of reality TV fame herself? You knew it was just a matter of time. What do you guys think? She is pretty cute, right?

She's no Lauren Conrad, but ... maybe not terrible?

Jason Wahler is back in the news.

Last year, you may recall, was a rough one for him.


The former Laguna Beach and Hills stud checked into rehab last year after four arrests in four different states (Calif., Wash., N.Y., N.C.) on charges ranging from underage drinking to assault and hurling racial epithets at a police officer.

Well, it's the last part that may have gotten Jason Wahler in trouble yet again - and banned from his college fiancee's place of residence!

The 21-year-old Wahler has reportedly been barred from the apartment of his blonde bride-to-be, Katja Decker-Sadowski, at USC, Us Weekly reports.

The reason? Wahler's use of racial slurs against a security guard on February 10 at Conquest's Tuscany, the complex where Katja Decker-Sadowski lives.

The accounts of the incident:

  • A witness says: "He called him the N word."
  • A Conquest rep added: "Jason Wahler's racist remarks were uncalled for. He is no longer welcome in the building."
  • Jason Wahler said: "None of this happened."

Well, that settles that.

Regardless, this is too bad. We were hoping that by getting engaged to Katja Decker-Sadowski, Wahler's mean streak was officially a thing of the past.

You did the right thing dumping him, Lauren Conrad. Twice.

That's the focal point of this drama-filled episode.

In her continuing efforts to forge a friendship with her former flame, Jason Wahler, star Lauren Conrad wasn't exactly expecting to learn that ...

  1. He has a new girlfriend.
  2. Oh, and they're living together.
  3. They're engaged! Surprise! Woo!

Jason drops bombs #1 and #2 during a lunch date with LC, inviting her to a housewarming party thrown by himself and his new gal. She accepts.

Only when Lauren and Audrina Patridge attend said party do they learn the full extent of Jason's relationship with Katja Decker-Sadowski.

The big moment comes when a drunk frat guy offers a toast - with a plastic cup of beer, just pumped from a keg - to celebrate the engagement of Wahler.

Lauren's eyes widened to the size of dinner plates.

Her heartbreak and complete shock evident, LC feigns happiness for a time, though later she confides to Jason that "I think you're being an idiot."

After all, he's only 20 years old and still in a recovering alcoholics program that recommends he not date anyone... let alone get engaged to someone.

A calm Jason Wahler just rolls with his ex-girlfriend's criticism, though, and is clearly happy with Katja Decker-Sadowski, a tennis player at USC.

The highlight of the night came when a clearly jealous Katja interrupted Lauren's during her heart-to-heart with Jason on the deck, heaving herself on Wahler's lap in one of the most awkward moments in Hills history. What a bitch!

The next day, Lauren Conrad reflected on the events with a cooler head, saying "this could have been me ... but as much as I love Jason, I'm glad it's not!"

She also noted that she's dreamed about the day gets engaged and it doesn't involve plastic cups of beer and Bob Marley posters. Same here, Lauren!

In other news, Whitney Port drops the ball a little at Teen Vogue when she is in charge of a photo shoot for a band, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, but goes out and parties with them late the night before and everyone shows up late. Fortunately, her editor, Lisa Love, only gives our girl a slight reprimand and tells her to step it up.

Lastly, the loathesome Spencer Pratt is not psyched about registering for wedding presents. Or telling his parents that he's engaged to Heidi Montag. The episode ends with Spence's sheepish admission that his folks don't even know... despite the fact that he's a media whore who appears on a well-known reality show!

Summer is almost over, but that doesn't mean it's not a great time to turn over a new leaf and begin life anew. Especially for recovering reality TV alcoholics.

Fresh out of rehab and four arrests in four states in the span of a year, former Laguna Beach star Jason Wahler says he's a new man ... and he's getting married!


Wahler's representative confirmed to TMZ that Jason officially proposed last weekend to his girlfriend, USC student and tennis star, Katja Decker-Sadowski.

Jason picked out some serious bling - a four-carat, emerald cut diamond ring - in Beverly Hills. Spencer Pratt and the fake ring he pretended to give Heidi Montag can suck it.

Jason Wahler and Katja Decker-Sadowski have been dating for six months or so, having gotten together even before he got out of detox.

The couple, which recently moved in together in Los Angeles, has not set a date. Wahler, fans surely remember used to date Lauren Conrad on both The Hills and Laguna Beach, but his being repeatedly being a dick caused messy breakups both times.

Still, he's committed to a new life, he and LC are friends, and Jason seems very happy since he met Katja Decker-Sadowski, so we're all for this union. Congrats, kids!

Here are some photos of Jason Wahler and Katja Decker-Sadowski. So in love!

After two months in "serious rehab" - and four drinking-related arrests in as many states, on charges ranging from disorderly conduct to assault - Jason Wahler is ready to face his demons.

"I relate to Lindsay," a repentant Wahler tells People.

"[Lindsay Lohan] is the same age as I am. I'm only 20. And to say that I can't drink ever again, even on my 21st birthday, is hard. But I don't care, as long as I'm healthy and happy."

Those weren't always his priorities.

"Anyone who's big in Hollywood who's underage gets in [to clubs]," he says.

Really? You're kidding. No one's ever seen Hayden Panettiere (the 17-year-old tease) at a club.

Oh, wait, that happens all the time.

Armed with a fake ID that he usually wasn't even asked for, the Laguna Beach hottie regressed from occasional social drinker to someone who partied hard three or four nights a week - a situation he considered normal.

"Until I started becoming someone I'm truly not," Jason Wahler says.

His ex, Lauren Conrad, broke up with him for just this reason.

"I did try drugs, but it was never my thing. It was alcohol, for sure. It would take me about 10 drinks before that other side came out. It's like I was Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," said Wahler, echoing the comments voiced en masse by viewers of Laguna Beach and The Hills.

A scuffle Wahler and then-girlfriend Kristin Deluca had with an L.A. tow-truck driver in September 2006 led to a conviction on misdemeanor battery charges.

After passing out in a lobby, then allegedly punching a Seattle hotel security guard in the face April 8, Wahler was charged with criminal trespassing and assault.

"I'm embarrassed as hell, but I really do not remember my arrests," Jason Wahler says. "They're blackouts. And that's scary."

We're guessing the same goes for those gun photos.

On April 12, Wahler checked into the Chapman House, a no-frills inpatient facility not far from his home in Orange County, Calif. He said that his former girlfriend (and The Hills star) Lauren Conrad, one of many he mistreated in the past, has visited him.

Wahler is now dating tennis player Katja Decker-Sadowski, a freshman at USC. He says of the rigorous regimen at Chapman House:

"It's exhausting, but after I started getting back to my senses, it was cool to get up in the morning and not be all hurting."

Imagine that. Apparently Britney Spears, who resumed drinking immediately after getting out of rehab, missed out on this message at Promises in Malibu.
