We have proof! Jake kept up the lie that he was still engaged to Vienna all for the sake of public appearance.
Jake Pavelka seems to be in denial about the breakup with his fiancée Vienna Girardi whom he met on the set of The Bachelor. Despite the fact that the couple broke up a month ago, he was telling people that they were still together just days ago. “On Friday [June 18 on the set of Drop Dead Diva], he was telling all the writers that they had a great relationship,” a Lifetime source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. And it was all for the sake of “keeping up public appearances,” confirms another source.
Jake has been in Peachtree, Ga., since Friday where he has been filming his guest appearance for Lifetime’s hit series Drop Dead Diva. Jake plays “Toby Davlin who is a bachelor on a reality dating show,” our source tells us. “He filmed on Friday and Monday.”
The gist of the the special episode that premieres Aug. 22 at 9 p.m. on Lifetime is that Jake (who also plays The Bachelor on the show) breaks the heart of a contestant nicknamed “Weeping Wendy” (played by Camille Guaty). “Wendy — the runner up — was filmed crying [because of her loss] and everyone started naming her ‘Weeping Wendy,'” says the insider. Then, “basically, she decided she was going to sue producer (played by Matt Letscher) of the reality show for inflicting emotional pain.” Is this all sounding ironic?
“Everyone said he was a pro,” continues our source. “It’s like art imitating life, so it wasn’t a stretch.”
“Jake paid really close attention to what the other actors did so he could learn,” the insider also explained. This comes as no surprise that Jake wants to be an actor. He’s been practicing for a month now by “pretending” to be in a relationship with Vienna after they in fact broke up.
Vienna has already moved on to a new guy: Gregory Michael!
