Matt Grant Stands By Shayne Lamas

by at .

He gave her the rose and an engagement ring.

She reacted like she sat on his face. Then she surprised him with a very classy photo spread in Girls Gone Wild magazine.

But The Bachelor star, Matt Grant, says he has no problem with fame-whore fiancée Shayne Lamas' revealing pictures in Joe Francis' rag.

"As we English say, I really feel it was ‘a storm in a teacup,'" Grant said. "I believe it was blown out of proportion. I stand by Shayne 110 percent."

A Shayne Lamas Photo

There was a flurry of media appearances after Grant got down on one knee to propose to Lamas on the finale of The Bachelor, but crickets after the Girls Gone Wild photos hit the web the very next Tuesday.

The pictures in the issue out June 3 do not show Shayne Lamas naked, but in this shot, she's wearing little more than a smile and a wedding veil.

Matt Grant says the couple are also brushing off media speculation that they're already having problems in their relationship.

"We sit down together and just laugh off all the ridiculous stories that get thrown our way," Grant says.

"All things considered we are doing really well."

The two are living in Shayne Lamas' Studio City condo at the moment, where Matt Grant says they are working out their new life.

"We have the normal pressures of any couple," he said. "But then, we have even more added pressures being that we are a reality TV couple, and that I'm leaving my life, friends and family in England to be with her."

We give it six months. Tops.
