What a difference a day makes. After a subdued Bachelor Jake Pavelka was caught Tuesday by TMZ cameras, saying that he and ex-fiancée Vienna Girardi would “always be friends”, nasty allegations about the reason behind the couple’s split are now coming out.
US Magazine already has the cover story this week, which features a picture of Pavelka and Girardi in happier times, with the damning headline “Bachelor Backstabber: Vienna Cheated”.
According to the US Magazine article, Pavelka’s recent guest spot on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva put him 2000 miles away from his fiancé and it sounds like when the cat was away the mouse decided to play. The article says that while Jake was out of town, Girardi told people she was single and then broke up with Jake over the phone.
Greek star Gregory Michael, who was caught on video partying it up with Girardi just days ago, told Us that Girardi said she was no longer with Jake. But this was before Vienna told Jake that fact, apparently.
Of course, there was likely trouble in paradise all along. The Bachelor franchise has a lousy track record for lasting relationships. That, coupled with the flack that Pavelka got for even picking Girardi in the first place (sugary sweet runner-up Tenley Molzahn was a fan favorite) meant the couple was fighting an uphill battle.
But after trying to remain a nice guy yesterday when TMZ cameras caught up with him at the airport, Pavelka’s apparently had it and is letting his side of the story come out.
His Twitter page has been silent since Monday afternoon, before all the breakup news hit the fan. Meanwhile, Vienna has tweeted, “The allegations of me cheating are false. 100% fabricated”. She also tweeted the sentiment, “Relationships are like glass. Sometimes it’s better to leave them broken than to hurt yourself trying to put them back together”. We couldn’t agree more, V!
Meanwhile, Tenley Molzahn is probably glad she’s not around for this mess. She’s currently holed up in the Bachelor Pad and she must be doing well-her Twitter has been silent since June 5th!
And to think if the Pavelka-Girardi break up had only occurred a few weeks sooner- maybe Jake or Vienna would have signed on for Bachelor Pad.
