Just three months after the finale ofÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor, reality TV coupleÂ Jake Pavelka andÂ Vienna Girardi have called it quits. Fans of the reality dating competition aren’t too shocked by the news, but apparently Girardi didn’t see it coming. A friend of Vienna Girardi’s says the breakup wasÂ ”was a shock, to say the least,” adding that, “She was really down about it.” This comes as a big surprise considering reports are circulating that the split came as a result of Vienna Girardi’s infidelity.
A source close to Vienna Girardi says that the former Hooters waitress is heartbroken over the split. “She’s not naive,” Vienna Girardi’s pal says. “But she was committed to see where this led. She really thought he was a special guy. She was ready to go as far as it could go, and it obviously ran its course.” Jake Pavelka, on the other hand, told reporters,Â ”I’m saddened by the whole thing. Sometimes love just isn’t enough in a relationship.”
Despite the heartache, Vienna Girardi’s pal thinks that breaking up with Jake Pavelka was probably best in the long run. “She didn’t expect to be married in her early 20s, so it’s probably all for the best,” the pal says about Vienna. And although Jake Pavelka reportedly said,”Â No matter what happens, Vienna and I will remain friends,” Vienna Girardi’s pal tells a different story.Â ”Let’s just say they’re not going to be hanging out together anytime soon,” the source says.
