The Bachelor star Vienna Girardi is "adorable in person", according to E! Online. The 23-year-old from Sanford, FL - who became engaged to airline pilot Jake Pavelka in the ABC show's season finale - had been painted in a bad light by some tabloids during her time on the competition. However, an insider who recently met Girardi and Pavelka in Los Angeles has insisted that the reports are untrue. "The cameras didn't do her justice! She's just adorable in person and couldn't be nicer. She's much prettier than she looked on TV. I can see why he chose her," they said. The couple are currently living in Los Angeles while Pavelka competes on Dancing With The Stars. Source Here
The Bachelor may be over but for Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, the public displays of affection aren't. The recently engaged couple was spotted Monday night getting hot and heavy in West Hollywood, just outside of Teddy's where they celebrated Pavelka's debut on Dancing with the Stars. Pavelka and Girardi, who couldn't keep their hands off each other, posed in front of the cameras and allowed the paparazzi to capture some tongue twisting action. View more photos here. Hopefully, this will quell rumors about Pavelka and Girardi's allegedly troubled relationship. Much have been reported about the Bachelor couple's problems, which ranges from Pavelka's affair with an ex-girlfriend while still filming The Bachelor, to Pavelka being too controlling and possessive of his fiance.

ABC may have officially named Ali Fedotowsky as the next Bachelorette but that hasn't stopped Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi from revealing her top choice. When one of her Twitter friends raved about fellow contestant Gia Allemand by saying, "she was a sweetheart on the show! she should've been the new bachelorette!...not Ali," Girardi replied and concurred. "I can't tell you how much I agree," Girardi tweeted. Nothing surprising here, though. Fans of The Bachelor witnessed the tension between Girardi and Fedotowsky on the show, ultimately resulting to Vienna's villainous reputation. "You don't see the things Vienna said to me. They were very hurtful," Fedotowsky said on the After the Final Rose special. To Read More Click Here .
What is "news"? Is it the relevant, insightful reporting and analysis of topics that affect our lives and our world? Or is it the drawn out, jazzed up re-purposing and presentation of tidbits about long-forgotten pop culture stars, presented by "journalists" who use words like 'haterade' and 'verklempt'? If you answered "I think it's that first one," well it's time for you to make an appointment with the eye doctor, because if you were seeing 20/20, you'd know that finding out how many women Bob Guiney slept with in 2003 is most certainly news, and "Did that one British Bachelor, I forget his name, get orthodontic work so that American women would kiss him on TV?" is a question that definitely needs delving into. Luckily, 20/20, ABC's premier newsertainment series, was there to answer these tough questions and more in their "Inside the Bachelor: Stories Behind the Rose" special last night. And, boy, did I learn a lot, and have so much fun learning it, too. "I hope you're not allergic to roses," host Chris Connelly literally said on air. Hahaha, somebody give this guy a Pultizer right now, because I am not allergic to roses, but I think I might be allergic to hard-hitting journalism. I feel a knowledge coma coming on!

The first wedding from "The Bachelor" was aired in ABC on Monday, March 8, witnessing the union of Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney. The actual ceremony took place at Terranea Resort on the coast of Rancho Palos Verdes, California on February 27 but ABC added some extra footage from the nuptials with the bride's preparation, wrapping it within two hours. The TV special showed some familiar faces from the reality show such as Trista and Ryan Sutter who were the first and only couple to get married on "The Bachelorette". There were also Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski as well as DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano. Charlie O'Connell and Sarah Brice who embarked on an on- and off- relationship were spotted together as a couple at the wedding. Molly, wearing $45,000 strapless Monique Lhuillier gown and Neil Lane jewelry, walked down the long isle toward her husband-to-be. Jason Castro serenaded the walk with "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and later that day, an actual rainbow showed up. Rain started to pouring down when Molly said her vow. However, they continued with smile and by the end of the 15-minute ceremony, they were both soaked. They walked back down the isle to enter the indoor party accompanied by Castro singing "That's What I'm Here For". In the reception, guests were treated with candle-lit dinner organized by Jo Gartin of Love Luck and Angels. Gavin DeGraw was also present to sing "Follow Through". "Thanks to everyone for being so excited for us - we really appreciate the support!" Jason tweeted on Monday. Some items from Jason and Molly's wedding are up for auction on eBay. The proceeds will benefit single parents on Project Parachute so that their children can get scholarships. Source Here
