Well, we’ve seen this story before.
Vienna Girardi, 23, of Sanford, Fla., is reportedly Jake Pavelka’s choice of special lady friend at the end of “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love.”
A little place called Starcasm has more information on Vienna, who is universally hated by the women of “The Bachelor” pad, although she is adored by Jake, who said on episode three that “My first kiss with Vienna is unlike any first kiss I’ve ever had in 31 years.”
He already knows that she was engaged as a teenager but broke off the engagement only to get married to a guy she didn’t know. The marriage lasted four months.
According to Starcasm.com, the husband’s name is Joshua William Riley.
To quote the story:
“He married Vienna, who changed her name to Vienna Riley, on September 6, 2005. The divorce was finalized on July 18, 2006. Both parties listed their residence as Florida, but there are online records that show a Jacksonville, North Carolina address for Vienna for a brief period of time. Much like her high school sweetheart, Joshua soon remarried to an Amanda Riley in North Carolina in April, 2007. So if Jake winds up choosing Vienna and it doesn’t work out, chances are he will be married to someone else within a year! She needs to tell him that before she gets booted!”
Not only that, an “anonymous source” gave Starcasm photos of Vienna with a guy the source said Vienna has been dating on and off for three years.
To quote the story:
“The source claims the hunk in the photos is from Vienna’s hometown of Sanford, Florida and that Vienna told her beau ‘she was going to the bachelor so she can be on TV and to wait for her.’ The source also claims that Vienna and he were together the night before she left to be on The Bachelor!”
Starcasm admitted they don’t have verification of when the photos were taken.
So it’s all hearsay and one-sided. Vienna, I would guess, would deny there was a relationship during the show and she may be 100 percent honest.
It’s like Jillian Harris with the Ed Swiderski allegations about having ladies back in Chicago, all while Wes Hayden (the Rozlyn Papa of Jillian’s season) was the one in the on-air hot seat.
To me, it doesn’t matter if Vienna was in a relationship or not. She’s wrong for Jake. That’s it.
