Frisky Rant: I’m On Team Vienna

Not that I was really on team anyone before, but I’ve watched the Jake and Vienna breakup special. Actually, I watched it twice, once alone and once with Aunt Mildred the body language expert, hoping to gain a new perspective. I always hated Vienna. When I watched her on “The Bachelor,” I thought she was a whiny, immature drama queen. That hasn’t changed. I still think she is. Maybe a little trashy. Maybe a little desperate for attention. Maybe just really young and naïve about the world. I thought I would still hate her on the breakup special. I wanted to. I thought I would side with Jake. Wrong. Like it or not, I’m totally on her team. Keep reading »

The Bachelor” franchise has shot two wedding episodes and a zillion “After the Final Rose” specials. But they’ve never done a special exclusively on a couple’s breakup. Until now.

As rumor has it, the situation on set was seriously tense. Radar reported that at one point during the filming, Jake pulled back his arm as if he were about to throw a punch.

Quotable: Jake Dumped Vienna Over The Phone So He Could Get Into Character

“One of the keys to acting is you have to get out of your head. ["Drop Dead Diva"] didn’t hire me to be Jake, they hired me to play Toby Davlin. I can’t be Jake and sell this character. I’ve been trying to put all that aside so that I can give this character justice. It’s been a struggle thinking about my relationship and going in front of the camera and shooting. It was a difficult conversation on the phone. But the relationship was headed in that direction.”

Jake Pavelka explains why he decided to break up with Vienna Girardi on the phone Monday night, after hearing about her flirting with another guy, rather than wait to do it in person. What, is he a method actor now? [People] Keep reading »

Vienna Girardi Was Paid $90K For Her Breakup Story

The Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka he-said-she-said battle has gone from 0 to 60 in the past 24 hours. The couple managed to grace the covers of 3 of 5 major tabloids this week. First Vienna went to Star, who supposedly paid her a whopping $90,000 for her side of the story—that their engagement was a sham, that Jake was cruel, and that he wouldn’t have sex with her—as she was packing her bags to leave him. In retaliation, Jake spoke to People, refuting her claims and saying that the real reason for the breakup was A) her hookup with Gregory Michael of “Greek” and B) her talking to Star behind his back. But what has me the most interested here is that $90K price tag. Is it ethical for tabloids to pay people of note for their breakup stories, especially before the breakup has even happened? This seems to add a whole new dimension to already tenuous Hollywood relationships—that your significant other could be broke and decide to dump you for a big pay day. Keep reading »
