Broken up Bachelor couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi are about to reunite-but just for a night. According to Extra , the former lovebirds will sit down for an interview during the July 5th episode of ABC’s The Bachelorette.
EOnline reported that ABC released the following statement: “We can confirm that Jake and Vienna will be doing an interview for ABC to air shortly. It will be the only interview that they will be doing together.”
The interview comes on the heels of a tumultuous round of he said/she said between the former lovebirds.
Pavelka recently expressed disappointment that Vienna went and sold her story of their breakup to Star Magazine. As for his side of the story, he told Extra, “There was a serious lack of respect in the relationship. I would like to think she didn’t cheat.”
Meanwhile a tearful Girardi appeared on ET , saying Jake refused to be intimate with her and that he never kissed her or showed her affection. She also explained that she broke up with him over the phone when he was out of town so he wouldn’t try to convince her to stay with him. Girardi verified that she also left a goodbye note for Pavelka along with the $50,000 Neil Lane diamond engagement ring that he gave her.
Girardi’s ET interview contained some very personal – and damning- details about her relationship with Jake, so it’s surprising that Pavelka would even agree to sit down to a televised interview with his former fiancée. Indeed, these two must have really signed their lives away to ABC. Why else would they- after all of the he said/she said that’s gone on this week- be willing to sit down together to talk about their breakup?
The timing of the breakup also opens up a new door for Pavelka. During the ET segment, it was confirmed that Jake will appear on the upcoming ABC summer dating/competition show, Bachelor Pad. While it was not revealed if he will be a contestant on the show ( the other contestants have already been in the Bachelor Pad house for weeks, so filming on this show should be close to wrapping up) this makes for an interesting turn of events for the newly single Jake. His runner up girlfriend on The Bachelor, Tenley Molzahn, is also shacking up in the Bachelor Pad house.
As for Jake and Vienna’s July 5th sit down with ABC, the date is appropriate as I’m sure there will be plenty of fireworks during this interview. Or at least plenty of tears.
