This sounds like much guido about nothing, but I’m posting it anyway.
Dominick Pierno, who is probably helping “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love” swimsuit model Gia Allemand grow her insecurity to epic proportions, has just complained to the New York Post that Gia is not single — she’s been dating him on-and-off for two years.
(I’m guessing it just switched to a solid “off”!)
To quote the Post story:
“Gia Allemand — one of the three finalists hoping to snag the final rose from pilot Jake Pavelka on ABC’s “The Bachelor” — already has a boyfriend. The brunette stunner, who once dated oft-injured Yankees pitcher Carl Pavano, has been dating Dominick Pierno, owner of Lavatola restaurant in Lynbrook, LI, on-and-off for two years. ‘She was on the show and said she broke up with me. Meanwhile, we had dinner at Philippe the other night,’ an irked Pierno told Page Six. ABC said Allemand was too busy taping to talk.”
Considering the “Bachelor” episode in question was taped months ago — and Jake Pavelka reportedly dumps Gia tonight — it makes perfect sense for her to be having dinner with this guy “the other night.”
Except for the fact that he sounds like a twat.
Gia, why pick up all of New York’s trash? There are professionals for that.
Read more about Gia here — including the other sports guy she dated and why she supposedly regrets her boob job. (Oh. And Gia is not her real first name.)
Anyway, here’s a reminder/ABC press release about what we’re going to watch tonight:
“THE BACHELOR: ON THE WINGS OF LOVE,” MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15
“Episode 1407” – Romantic adventures await Jake and the final three women – Gia, Tenley and Vienna – as they travel to the picturesque Caribbean island of St. Lucia. From the rain forest to an old sugar plantation to a pirate ship, the dates are filled with excitement and passion, as Jake continues to explore what his future would be like with each of these potential mates. At the end of each evening, Jake will present the bachelorette with an invitation to spend an intimate night together in a “fantasy suite,” with the hope that she will accept. But will she? It’s a wild, romantic ride with each of the women – until Jake has to make another heart-wrenching decision – tremendously complicated by a departed bachelorette who pleads for a second chance, on “The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love,” MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Jake is falling hard for Gia and takes her by speedboat to the local marketplace in Gros Islet. Can Gia let go of her fast paced city lifestyle and enjoy relaxed island life? Over a romantic moonlit dinner in a secluded cove, she reveals to Jake that she has been more open with him than with the other guys she’s dated. But will she have the courage to share her true feelings for him?
The next day it’s Tenley’s turn, and Jake surprises her with a scenic helicopter tour of the island followed by a romantic picnic in the rain forest of an old sugar plantation. Tenley is smitten with Jake, but she’s worried about staying with him in the fantasy suite. Having only been with her ex-husband, the sensitive bachelorette questions whether she’s truly ready to take this intimate step and put her past solidly behind her.
Jake’s final outing of the week is with Vienna. The couple explore the enchanted island aboard a pirate ship, the Brig Unicorn, which leads to a romantic swim on a private beach. She’s falling in love with Jake, but she’s scared. Vienna must decide whether to lay her heart on the line even though she knows he has feelings for the other two women.
The Bachelor has fallen in love with all three women – all for different reasons – and he’s about to face his toughest decision yet. However, he finds himself unexpectedly challenged by a determined, departed bachelorette who has had a change of heart and hopes she can convince Jake to make her a part of his life again.
In the end, Jake sends one woman home in tears and offers the final two roses to the women who will meet his family in hopes that he’ll choose them in the dramatic season finale.
The three women are:
Gia, 26, a swimsuit model from New York, NY
Tenley, 25, a college admissions representative from Newberg, OR
Vienna, 23, a marketing representative from Sanford, FL
