Jake Vs. Vienna: Publicity Stunt or Real Break-Up?

Something smells awfully fishy about this break-up between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi. It’s been a battle of he said-she said this week over who dumped who, who was cheating on who, and who refused to have sex with who.

The breakup never surprised us, since none of the engagements off that show ever work. But both sides seem more concerned with the careers in Hollywood now than they ever did with each other.

Jake Broke Up with Vienna By Phone

Vienna’s side: She claims two things: that Jake never wanted to sleep with her, and that he only did the show to further his acting career. To her defense, he did jump straight from The Bachelor to Dancing With the Stars.

He’s also going to be on Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva. And just today, ET is reporting that Pavelka will now be a part of ABC’s Bachelor Pad, which airs this summer. Host Chris Harrison said, “I can’t explain everything, it kind of just happened, but Jake will definitely play his part now in Bachelor Pad!”

“I was sorry to hear that Jake and Vienna broke up,” Chris continues. “I guess it’s true, but I haven’t talked to either one of them yet, so I was sorry to hear it. They are two of my favorite people.”

Vienna did an interview with Star magazine, in which she went into detail about their intimacy—or lack of it. "We haven't been intimate in months now," Vienna revealed to the mag.

"More than four months. At first his excuse was that he was fasting. The second excuse was that he didn’t feel like it. And the third excuse was that he said that he felt that I wouldn’t understand that he wants to wait until marriage, even though I told him I’d support him. Then the last excuse was that we fight so much that I push him away. I was like, really — which excuse is it? I literally have been living six months with this guy who won’t be intimate with me!"

Jake’s Side: Jake claims he broke up with Vienna over the phone on Monday from Atlanta, where he’s shooting Drop Dead Diva. He said he was having trouble getting into his character, and knew he had to pull the trigger.

Vienna: Jake Refused to Have Sex With Me

"One of the keys to acting is you have to get out of your head," Pavelka told 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."

He said he was having trust issues with Vienna, who is rumored to have been hanging closely with Gregory Michael from Greek.
"I've been trying to put all that aside so that I can give this character justice," he said. "It's been a struggle thinking about my relationship and going in front of the camera and shooting."

Now that it’s all out on the table, we have to say we agree slightly more with Vienna. It does seem that Jake is preoccupied with his career, and may have just done the show in order to get discovered. As for the intimacy thing, it’s a little odd, and makes us wonder if Jake is even into the ladies! Vienna herself reportedly told a friend, “I don’t think Jake is into girls.”
