Alas, another reality TV couple bites the breakup dust. Season 5 "Bachelorette" Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski have called it quits, for real.
"I love him and I'm really sad, but I have to look out for me," a wistful Jillian told Us Weekly">Us Magazine.
Former "Bachelorette" DeAnna Pappas has a new beau -- and he's no stranger to reality TV!
Pappas and new boyfriend Steve Stagliano were spotted Wednesday in an L.A. park practicing their golf swings -- and laughing and kissing.
In February, Pappas told "Extra," "I want somebody who's funny. I like to laugh. I like to smile."
Stagliano's identical twin brother Michael was the upbeat breakdancer on season five of "The Bachelorette" with Jillian Harris -- he made it to the final six suitors but was eliminated in episode seven.
Stagliano actually met Harris on "The Bachelorette" episode where she traveled home with the contestants to meet their families.
Pappas and "The Bachelorette" winner and professional snowboarder Jesse Csincsak broke off their engagement last November.
He lost out on "The Bachelorette," but Jake Pavelka is again ready to look for love on TV. After being announced as the new "Bachelor," Jake sat down with "Extra" to talk about settling down, breaking hearts -- and his celebrity crush.
"I am absolutely ready to settle down," the commercial pilot says. Jake was dismissed by Jillian Harris on "The Bachelorette" and memorably announced, "Nice guys finish last." He's returning to reality TV to find the woman he hopes to marry. "I'm 31 and still single, so I'm doing something wrong out there."
The southern gentleman has had his heart broken in the past and knows it's possible people will get hurt on "The Bachelor" as well. "I've had my heart handed to me. It was my high school sweetheart," Jake recalls. "Boy, you never forget!"
Jake tells "Extra" he has a celebrity crush on former "American Idol" and country star Carrie Underwood and he's afraid of falling in love with more than one girl on "The Bachelor."
The 14th season of "The Bachelor" premieres this January on ABC. What do you think of Jake as "The Bachelor" -- vote now!
"The Bachelorette's" Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski are trying to put the reports of Ed's infidelity behind them. The reality TV couple enjoyed late night drinks and appetizers at LAVO inside the Palazzo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Friday.
The two canceled a reservation at the same restaurant a few hours earlier, prompting speculation of their breakup. A source tells People magazine the reservation was moved because Ed was working late.
Inside LAVO, Harris and Swiderski held hands, talked and sipped wine.
"The Bachelorette's" Jillian Harris admits she cried after hearing her fiance Ed Swiderski allegedly cheated, but the two are still going strong.
"I'll admit, I was tearing up with my dad this morning," Harris told The Province newspaper Thursday. "I would never do anything mean-spirited in my life. I'll never say a mean thing about one of those girls even though I'm very confused why they would do something like this... I just don't really get it, but that's part of what I signed up for and I just need to hold on tight and get through it."
Harris sticks to her claim that Swiderski did not two-time her with two other women. "It's actually very sad for me and for Ed and I'm sure for the two girls involved, who I'm sure are very regretful for saying these things that aren't true," she says.
She says she still plans to move to Chicago next month to be closer to Ed. She adds, "I am not affected by this at all. "We really plan on trying to get out of the limelight and trying to get on with our lives. It's been a hard couple of days but... it only made us stronger and it's only made us communicate with each other more."
