In a new interview, Vienna addresses what it was like to confront her ex Jake Pavelka on ‘Bachelor Pad’ — and reveals that she wants to five have kids!
ABC’s hit reality show Bachelor Pad can be tough to overcome for its competitors, especially for those who are dating. But for former Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi and her boyfriend Kasey Kahl, they made it past the issues they faced while filming and are now living happily ever after … together that is!
“Kasey and I have been together for six months and we’ve just moved into our own apartment together,” Vienna tells Starsentertainment.com. “We came out stronger than we went in. If you can last Bachelor Pad in a relationship, you can last anything. No joke.”
Vienna’s happy to be with Kasey. “Yes at this part of my life I am ready to be in a committed relationship,” she shares. “I’ve had so many bad relationships, and every single one of them I am grateful for, because they made me realize what I want in a man, and what not to put up with. I waited a year before I started dating and when I met Kasey I knew he was the one. I am more than happy than I have ever been.”
She even feels the clock ticking. “I’m 25,” Vienna admits. “I want to have 5 kids one day.”
But facing the Bachelor Pad and being housed with her ex-fiance Jake Pavelka was hard. “I was being civil,” says Vienna. “Being put into a house with your ex-fiance is very difficult and a guy [might] not understand it, but it’s difficult for a woman. I never approached Jake ever, not one time. I stayed away from him. He apologized. I did forgive him. We made our peace.”
“The past is the past and I just want to leave it in the past,” adds Vienna. “I wasn’t being mean. When I said I don’t want to talk to him, I was doing that out of respect for my boyfriend. I am not going to talk to my ex-fiance the second Kasey leaves the house. Honestly, I don’t feel safe around him alone.”
And Vienna’s irritated that Bachelor Pad focused so much on her failed relationship. “I’ve moved on with my life but those things still hurt and are still hard for me,” Vienna stresses. “I just want to leave that past in the past. This is not the Vienna and Jake closure show. This is the Bachelor Pad. I am trying so hard to get over it and move on with my life. I don’t know if it was him or the producers, but every day there was something else he wanted to talk to me about. Just drop it.”
