The Bachelor’s Chris Harrison to interview Jake & Vienna post-breakup


First there was the inevitable breakup announcement, and then there were the nasy post-breakup statements about accusations of cheating, and withholding sex from the latest loathsome contestants of ABC’s tired dating reality show, “The Bachelor.” As if anyone actually thought Jake Pavelka and his “fiancee” Vienna Girardi were a real item at any time. Now, “Bachelor” host Chris Harrison has somehow convinced these two morons to participate in a post-mortem TV interview about their breakup and why it happened.

Former “Bachelor” Jake Pavelka and his ex-fiancee Vienna Girardi will appear together in a new television interview.

ABC confirms that the former couple will be interviewed by “The Bachelor” host Chris Harrison on the Monday, July 5 episode of ABC’s “The Bachelorette.”

This will mark the first time the pair has been interviewed together since their recent split.

Of course- because after someone cheats on you and you dump them, the first thing you want to do is go on TV with that person and talk about it! I think this proves that this entire relationship was a PR stunt to further their “careers.” Oh, and Jake Pavelka is saying that he had to break up with Vienna over the phone because he was having trouble getting into character for his appearance on the Lifetime show, Drop Dead Diva. Because he’s such a method actor, you know? Marlon Brando, Mickey Rourke, and the guy from the Bachelor.

“The Bachelor’s” Jake Pavelka, says he had no choice but to end things long-distance with fiancée Vienna Girardi. The reason? He was struggling to get into character for his role on Lifetime’s “Drop Dead Diva,” which he was filming in Atlanta while Vienna remained in Los Angeles.

“One of the keys to acting is you have to get out of your head,” Pavelka, 32, tells PEOPLE. “This [show] didn’t hire me to be Jake, they hired me to play Toby Davlin. I can’t be Jake and sell this character.”

Troubled by what he termed “trust issues” with Vienna, 24, Jake says he broke up with her in a phone call Monday night.

“I’ve been trying to put all that aside so that I can give this character justice,” he says. “It’s been a struggle thinking about my relationship and going in front of the camera and shooting.”

He also acknowledges, “It was a difficult conversation on the phone. But the relationship was headed in that direction.”

So, who’s watching that trainwreck – and who’s watching Jake’s master class in method acting on “Drop Dead Diva?”

    Dear Chris Harrison . . What is this comment about “YA YA . . . we don’t care about what happened to the dog . . ” How a man treats your dog is indicative on how he treats you. Vienna .I’m on your side. If he doesn’t get dog love . . he will never get it.
