Despite rumors of Ed Swiderski's rampant infidelity and deception, The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris is still standing by her final rose recipient.
Rumors speculated that the two might be on the verge of breaking up after she told a newspaper about a tear-filled conversation with her father re: Ed's alleged womanizing. The two then cancelled dinner plans in Las Vegas abruptly.
But Ed Swiderski somehow climbed back into her good graces, and the two made a surprise showing at the Palazzo's LAVO restaurant after all - three hours late.
"They just showed up," a source said. "They were clearly putting on a united front. They had their arms together. She looked like she was really in love with him."
"They drank wine while deciding what to have. They looked comfortable with each other. She's beautiful in person, even better than what you see on TV."
Jillian Harris has not been all smiles these days.
Swiderski's affections were suspect and his casual glances at other women did not seem as innocent given the allegations against him by two ex-girlfriends.
Lindsey Johnson claims Ed led her on - and even had sex with her eight days after he got engaged to Jillian. That's not exactly a smooth move if it's true.
Another girl, Bethany Steffen, says Ed also dated her, and sent "sext" messages to her throughout and following his tenure on The Bachelorette this spring.
Harris admitted crying on the phone with her dad regarding the stories of Ed Swiderski's possible cheating ways. But according to The Province newspaper, she maintained the couple was brushing off the controversy and moving forward.
"I am not affected by this," she said. "We really plan on trying to get out of the limelight and trying to get on with our lives. It's been a hard couple of days but it only made us stronger and it's only made us communicate with each other more."
Will Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski last?
