Another Bachelorette couple bites the dust – and one we thought had a shot.
Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, who got engaged on the previous season finale of The Bachelorette, have called off their engagement, according to reports.
This leaves Trista and Ryan Sutter as the only Bachelorette couple still together, with Jason and Molly Mesnick the lone survivors from The Bachelor side.
“I love him and I’m really sad, but I have to look out for me,” Jillian Harris said.
“We’re both kind of resetting,” Swiderski added. “Jillian isn’t happy and I’m definitely sad about the whole thing, but we’ve got to work through some things.”
Ed says that they will do so “on our own if we decide to move forward.”
Jillian and Ed called it quits. Did you see that coming?
We don’t expect this to turn into a public war of words like the split between Bachelor stars Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi. But it’s still a sad situation.
Last August, reports swirled about Ed Swiderski juggling two girlfriends while wooing Harris on the show (and even slept with one after proposing to her).
They seemed to be fine, as the couple mostly stayed out of the spotlight, then announced their wedding plans on this past season finale of The Bachelor.
But recently, things apparently took a turn for the worse.
“There’s bumps on the road, and we don’t always deal with them properly,” Harris said in an interview just last month. “Our life is not always perfect.”
Sorry to hear it … but call us, Jill. You can do better. As for Ed, is it too late for him to rock those ’70s-style basketball shorts on Bachelor Pad?
