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 »

Quotable: Vienna Girardi Makes A Brilliant Point

“We’ve only been together for six months. How can you get sick of somebody in six months? How do you get sick on somebody in that short of time? Especially in the first month?” [...] How does everything go away in the first month?”

Vienna Girardi, during last night’s pre-recorded blow-out with ex Jake Pavelka. Let this be a lesson to all you single peeps out there looking for your Mr. or Ms. Right. If your relationship is hard in the first six months, get out. The first six months to a year is the easiest period of a relationship. If you’re already having trouble then, there’s little to no way you’re going to pull off a happy, successful union together. Just cut your losses and move on before you drive each other completely bonkers. Seriously, the number of letters I receive for my “Dear Wendy” column would be cut in half if everyone heeded this advice. Keep reading »

Jake And Vienna Face Off: My Great Aunt Mildred Decodes Their Body Language


The Frisky enjoyed a three day weekend in celebration of Independence Day, which is why there was no liveblogging of the latest episode of “The Bachelorette” last night.

And my, oh my, did she have some thoughts about Jake and Vienna’s behavior and omissions. Find out her assessment*** of what they had to say — and how they said it — after the jump … Keep reading »

Quotable: Former “Bachelorette” Contestant Thinks Jake Pavelka Has “Gay Tendencies”

“I definitely think he has gay tendencies, not only because of the way he dresses but also because he didn’t want to have sex with a beautiful girl and never really tried with the other girls on the show. Nothing personal, Jake!”

– Paul Rosseau, a contestant from season four of “The Bachelorette,” on Jake Pavelka, the former “Bachelor” who just split from Vienna Girardi. Look, I hate it when people call other people “gay,” and then follow it up with “nothing personal,” as if being gay is a bad thing. As for dressing “gay,” please, the gay dudes we know wouldn’t be caught dead in a mock turtleneck. Anyway, Jake seems more asexual to me, in the Tom Cruise-ian “ambition gives me a boner”-sort of way. [Radar Online] Keep reading »

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 »
