Over the weekend, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney tied the knot—we’ll see it unfold on television on March 8—becoming the first “Bachelor” couple to actually make it down the aisle, news that we can only applaud since Melissa Rycroft recently got hitched as well. And tonight, Jake Pavleka will make his final decision and propose to either nudey-pic Vienna or Disney Princess Tenley. Rumor has it that Vienna will be his final choice, though meanwhile the whole world is expressing a strong preference for Tenley. But before Jake flies off into the sunset with either of these ladies, we thought we’d take a look back and catch you up on where some of the “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” contestants past have ended up.

“The Bachelor…On the Wings of Love…The Women Tell All” is a very long title, and it was a very long show. We saw, in two hours, how past contestants get drunk on Bachelor “reunion cruises,” how they give back to charity, and—as host Chris Harrison kept saying—how exactly the “biggest TV scandal of 2010″ went down, i.e., how contestant Rozlyn Papa got busy with a nameless producer (we’re talking making out, probably with tongue) before both were kicked off the show.
So, yes, the women told all, Rozlyn denied everything, and who knows how many production assistants burnt their fingers lighting a hundred, or a thousand tea lights. Much to our surprise, however, the show yielded some heartfelt, real-world dating tips that could help all of us find love. Read more … Keep reading »
Well, that certainly didn’t take long. Rozlyn Papa, the bachelorette who was kicked off “The Bachelor” earlier this season for inappropriate behavior with a producer, allegedly has a sex tape that’s being shopped around to various porn companies. According to a rep for Papa (seriously? She has a rep?), Rozlyn has “no knowledge of any tape.” But Kevin Blatt, a rep from a porn site who’s been shown the tape, says he watched it and “it’s definitely Rozlyn.” He claims the tape features her performing “one sexual act with a well-endowed gentleman.” I wonder how long before she swears “on her child’s life” she never made such a tape … nor has even ever performed a sex act on any gentleman, well-endowed or not.

If you watched “The Bachelor” special last night, “The Women Tell All,” you definitely saw former contestant Rozlyn Papa — the one who got kicked off for having an “inappropriate relationship” with a producer — come on and attack host Chris Harrison. In fact, she even went so far as to imply that he’s a cheater! When Harrison, a married father of two, said that the producer with whom Rozlyn was allegedly involved was a dear friend, Rozlyn shot back: “That’s news to him, especially when you were hitting on his wife in New Zealand. He thought that was crazy.” Harrison cooly replied: “I won’t dignify that with a response. I hope you will become a better person through this.” (Clip above!)
After the jump, see what Harrison is telling “Entertainment Weekly” why he didn’t immediately reply to her accusation.

Tonight, it’s “The Women Tell All” episode, which I think we can all expect will get dramatic — Rozlyn WILL be there. See you in 10! Keep reading »
Gia certainly seemed sad when she was sent home from “The Bachelor” last week, Jake-less. But could some of her hesitancy to open up to him have been because … she has a boyfriend? A Long Island restaurant owner named Domenick Pierno is claiming that he was dating Gia the entire time she was on the show. “We had been dating four or five years off and on — but mostly on — when she decided to go on the show. She had done some modeling here and there, and from there she was hoping other things could come about,” he told the New York Post. “I didn’t see her during filming, but as soon as she got back, we were together. We still see each other. We’re still dating … I saw her a couple of days ago. I went to her apartment in Manhattan.”
Gia claims this dude is totally tripping. “We have not been an item for three years,” she said. “Since then, we have been acquaintances.”
Who knows whom to believe? But I do like that Gia uses the term “an item.” Someone has been studying their gossip column lingo! [NY Post] Keep reading »
“I had to make a tough choice whether to stay or leave because of work. I’d be faced with that decision again, but I would challenge myself to put love first … The opportunity would be so exciting. It’d be very difficult for me because I’ve never met a guy and been attracted right away. Usually I have several interactions and become attracted to their mind instead of the first impression. I might not be any good because I’d be drilling everyone.”
— Ali Fedotowsky, the woman who prematurely left “The Bachelor,” on the buzz about her being the next “Bachelorette.” But what if Jake were to ask her back before that happened?
“He was hurt by me leaving and I think he is with someone right now and happy, so I don’t know that I can imagine him coming back. But if he did, I would think about it. I really care for him. I don’t know how quickly we could move forward.”

In certain couplings, it’s hard to tell who is the crazy one. Is it him? Is it her? With Vienna Girardi of “The Bachelor” and her ex, Brian Lee Smith, most people assumed the latter, just because everyone likes to hate on Vienna. Rumors have circulated that she was still dating Smith when she left to film “The Bachelor,” and that since returning from the show, she’s been following him and his new girlfriend around, harassing them. But RadarOnline.com has uncovered some info that tells another story—that he’s the crazy one. They recently found out that Smith was arrested in October for trespassing at Vienna’s parents’ house and they have the mug shot to prove it. Sources back this up. “They broke up at spring break of last year,” says a friend. “Vienna has not even seen Brian since he was arrested in her front yard.” She just got another degree more believable to me.

On last night’s episode of “The Bachelor,” Ali Fedotowsky, who tearfully left the show last week because she was going to get fired from her job at Facebook if she didn’t go back to work, called to tell Jake Pavelka she made a mistake. However, in the 10 seconds (OK, few weeks, probably) that has passed since she bid him adieu, Jake had “fallen in love” with the three remaining women and didn’t think it was a “good idea” to let Ali come back for a second shot. Ali shed even more tears as she declared that leaving was the biggest mistake she’d ever made, and, I believe, her “performance” likely earned her the title of the next “Bachelorette.” While nothing is confirmed, Ali paid a visit to “The Ellen Show” and hinted she might be interested.
