Former reality TV star Trista Sutter knows what it means to find love on a TV show, having married Ryan Sutter after she picked him on the first season of "The Bachelorette."
Now, she's weighing in on the recent split between "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka and his choice, Vienna Giraridi. "I can't say I was surprised," she told "Extra," adding she wasn't a big fan of Vienna, but was still saddened by the news.
Rozlyn Papa denies having a "physical" affair with a "Bachelor" staff member -- but host Chris Harrison says the blonde beauty didn't try to hide their relationship.
"They were very brazen, very open about it," Harrison tells "Extra" of Papa, 29, and the ousted staffer. "Other cast members, other girls, saw inappropriate things happen. Our crew members saw things happening!"
Harrison also tells "Extra" that rumors ABC made up the drama for ratings are absurd. "To think that we would have just concocted some story just to have some sort of Week 2 ratings bump is insane!" Harrison says.
Jake Pavelka isn't crying over Rozlyn's scandalous exit from the show.
"She was just gone, and that's the way that I wanted it," Pavelka, 31, tells "Extra," adding, "Unfortunately, 'The Bachelor' lost a really great staff member."
Today, Radar Online unearthed more about the woman at the center of the "Bachelor" scandal -- including three arrests! Papa was sentenced to jail, but charges were later dismissed.
Former "Bachelorette" Trista Sutter tells "Extra" that she may have believed Rozlyn's denial -- if she had defended herself when confronted about the affair.
"She didn't react at all," Sutter says. "If I was in her position and I was being accused of something I didn't do, my face would have been red, I would been totally angry, I would have had tears in my eyes, you saw none of that!"
Watch Jake get one step closer to love when "The Bachelor" airs Monday night on ABC.
Former "Bachelorette" Trista Sutter has built a beautiful family with husband Ryan -- but tells "Extra" that after two kids, they're done having children.
Trista and Ryan tied the knot in 2003. Their son Max is 2, daughter Blakesley Grace is nearly 4 months.
A successful relationship can result from an experience on "The Bachelor" or "The Bachelorette."
Jason Mesnick and Trista Sutter turned to reality TV for love and they both say Jillian Harris picked the right man on the season finale of "The Bachelorette."
Jason dumped Jillian last season on "The Bachelor," but neither holds a grudge. Mesnick tells "Extra," "I think when she started off she was always looking for her best friend, and from my perspective I think she found it." The single dad stays busy with his website JasonsPlace.com and Molly Malaney is still in the picture!
So far, Trista and Ryan are the only "Bachelorette" couple still going strong. The mom of two tells "Extra" Jillian and Ed can make it. "I promise everyone out there that it can work. We're not just staying together because we're trying to prove people wrong I can tell you that much."
Former "Bachelorette" Trista Sutter and hubby Ryan welcomed daughter Blakesley Grace on April 3 -- but only after hours of a snowstorm delivery drama! It's like it was made for reality TV!
The reality couple battled a spring snowstorm in Vail, Colorado while traveling to the hospital where Trista gave birth. "I started going into labor, so my friend drove me," Sutter told Life & Style magazine of heading to the hospital. "We were in the middle of a blizzard!"
Police had closed the highway, but Trista wasn't giving up. She continues, "I had to tell the trooper, 'I'm in labor, I need to get through.' I think he knew he had the choice of letting me through or delivering the baby in my car."
Despite the storm, Ryan (who was in another location) made it to the hospital in videotape Blakesley's birth, and to cut the cord. The couple's first daughter joins older brother Max, 20 months.
There have been 13 seasons of "The Bachelor" -- which means thousands of red roses and a few broken hearts.
Sometimes "The Bachelor" is a story of love sweet love, like the case of Charlie O'Connell and Sarah Brice. Charlie chose Sarah at the end of the show's 7th season, but the couple called it quits in September 2007. A year later, Charlie and Sarah rekindled their romance. Charlie revealed to "Extra," "I think the breakup really helped our relationship."
The biggest "Bachelor" fairy tale belongs to Trista Rehn, now Trista Sutter, having married Ryan Sutter after her stint on "The Bachelorette" in 2003 -- and with whom she's expecting a second child this spring.
Season 6 "Bachelor" and pro bass fisherman Byron Velvick and winner Mary Delgado are also still together. The couple's love survived Mary's arrest for domestic battery against Byron in 2007.
The first "Bachelor" Alex Michel chose Amanda Marsh, instead of Trista. Michel and Marsh split shortly after, but he says he's currently dating one very special lady.
"Bachelor" number 3 Andrew Firestone got down on one knee for Jen Schefft. They went different ways in December 2003, now Andrew is expecting his first child with wife Ivana Bozilovic. Jen Schefft also recovered from the breakup -- she's currently engaged to Joe Waterman.
"The Bachelor" season 13 reject Jillian Harris will be the next "Bachelorette." Roses will be awarded -- and love will surely be in the air on ABC this May.
Former "Bachelorette" Trista and hubby Ryan celebrated son Max's first birthday with a kid-friendly birthday bash!
