ABC can bleep his name all it wants, but Greek’s Gregory Michael is caught in the middle of the Breakup of the Century between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi.
In last night’s explosive interview on The Bachelorette, Jake accused his ex-fiancee of cheating with Michael, which she denied. “There [was] nothing,” she said.
Michael says there was something, alright.
“That’s a lie,” the actor told Us Weekly. “We definitely made out that weekend [June 20] and Vienna made it very clear that it was over between her and Jake.”
Girardi said they only danced for less than “nine seconds,” but Michael counters: “I wouldn’t say we danced for a few seconds. We danced as a group all night.”
“We also danced alone for parts of the evening.”
Was Vienna Girardi lying about her dalliances with Gregory Michael during last night’s tell-all interview - and is Jake’s now-single ex seeing the Greek star now?
Michael says she did tell the truth when she told Jake Pavelka that she hardly knew him: “At the time the interview was conducted, we hardly knew each other.”
But he took aim at Jake when the former Bachelor star referred to him directly when saying, “That boy told me you cheated when he went on-the-record.”
“I never said she cheated,” Michael insisted. “I said we hooked up and she said they were broken up. I would never do that if she was in a relationship.”
He says he doesn’t know anything about Pavelka’s claim that Vienna Girardi hooked up with other guys: “I don’t know what flings Jake is referring to.”
The ABC interview ended with Vienna storming out in tears after Jake raised his hand in anger and stunningly reprimanded her for interrupting him.
What do you think? Do you believe Vienna? Does this swing your opinion back toward Jake at all? Choose your side in THG’s survey below:
It was already a he said, she said battle for the ages, but find a hat, then hold the f*%k onto it, ’cause Vienna Girardi is really taking it to Jake Pavelka now.
In a new clip from Monday’s episode of The Bachelorette, which will feature a joint interview with the formerly engaged close, she drops this bomb on him:
“You are the biggest fake liar I’ve ever met in my entire life.”
BAM. Talk about getting owned. But Jake, not to sit there and be humiliated, snaps back, “Who’s the guy you had on Saturday night at the apartment?”
That would be Greek star Gregory Michael, whose name is bleeped out in the clip, and whose affair with Vienna was supposedly the last straw for Jake.

On Good Morning America Friday, host-pimp Chris Harrison admits their first face-to-face encounter since their split was “definitely contentious.”
In the first clip released yesterday, Girardi, a former Hooters waitress, defends herself for selling details about their love life to a tabloid, claiming she had to.
“Jake felt really betrayed that she sold these very intimate stories,” Harrison adds. “That’s where it got heated. Jake really takes offense that he was sold out.”
Among those stories he was so upset: That while we’ve all seen Vienna Girardi nude or close to it, Jake had no interest in hitting that for months on end!
Follow the jump for to see the fake couple bicker for yourself:
Whose side are you on in the Breakup of the Century?
Is Jake Pavelka gay? Personally, we don’t see it, but there are now two separate reports of this surfacing, and crazier things have turned out to be true.
We’d rate this rumor as less believable than reports of Al Gore trying to sex up Molly Hagerty, but at the same time, we wouldn’t rule it out fully yet.
Despite his nice public persona, The Bachelor star weaves a web of lies, according to Vienna Girardi … and Tanya Douglas, who dated Jake from 2008-09.
“Jake did the same thing to me!” says Tanya, claiming Jake promised to marry her but never followed through on it. “He is a slippery, slimy con man.”
Here’s where the gay rumors come in. As with Vienna, Tanya Douglas says Jake withheld physical affection from Tanya … after sleeping with her first.
“He told me he had to abstain from sex for religious purposes until we were married,” she recalls. “It was weird, ’cause we had already been intimate!”
WEB OF LIES: Did Jake date another man, as Star claims?
Instead of cuddling Tanya, Jake “locked himself in the closet and pray in the dark,” she reveals. “I’m all for prayer, but in the closet?” In the closet … fitting.
Douglas says that the big phony didn’t even go to church regularly and “used religion as an excuse when it was convenient for him.” Vienna can attest.
The religious excuse was many he used for refusing sex with Vienna, or so she claims. Fellow Bachelor contestants think they know the real reason.
“I think he has gay potential and definitely gay tendencies,” a Bachelorette contender, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said of the hunky pilot.
Says Paul Rosseau of The Bachelorette: “He didn’t want to have sex with a beautiful girl and never really tried with the other girls … Nothing personal, Jake!”
Richard Mathey from the same season said, “I’m not sure if he is gay, but it seems he has no experience with the types of women that are on the show.”
Friends of Vienna’s also have conflicting theories about his sexuality. “Vienna told me, ‘I don’t think Jake is into girls,’” a friend of Vienna’s told Radar.
Tell us what you think: Jake Pavelka is …
The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky, whose season premiered last night, says she’s no longer feuding with nemesis Vienna Girardi. All together now … Phew.
Chris Harrison, the show’s pimp-in-chief, confirmed the hatchet burying at Dancing With the Stars (which aired right after The Bachelorette season premiere).
The two ladies, who famously clashed on The Bachelor while in competition for Jake Pavelka, even “hugged each other and, said ‘Hi,’” back stage at the taping.
“That’s one of the ways Ali has grown as a person,” Chris said.
What, by not being a completely catty b!tch? Great job, Ali!
The Bachelorette star Ali, left, and The Bachelor winner Vienna … yeah.
Back in the day, Ali Fedotowsky would call out Vienna Girardi for, among other things, bragging that she’d “shake her boobs in Jake’s face,” but not any longer.
“[Ali] regretted some of that,” Harrison added. “I get it. Look, in the heat of the moment, on the show, you say some things, you regret certain things, there are things you look back and might not do and that was one of them. She apologized for that.”
Fedotowsky is “so happy for Jake,” Harrison went on about the new star. “She realizes now that it wasn’t meant to be, she wasn’t supposed to be with Jake.”
Harrison said he thinks Vienna Girardi got a bad rap as the villain on the show, and that anyone writing her off is presumptuous. Can’t we all just get along?
Apparently we can/ Jake Pavelka even posted a pic on Facebook of him, his fiancee and Ali. Oh, how times change (click here to be THG’s Facebook friend).

Long hours. Intense pressure. No pants. Jake Pavelka can endure that. Handling the “popularity contest” that is Dancing with the Stars? He’s got issues there.
“I think dancing-wise, I’ve been doing OK,” The Bachelor star said. “The thing I wasn’t really prepared for was this is a little bit of a popularity contest!”
“I’ve been focusing 150 percent of my energy on learning dancing and neglecting the 25 million people who don’t know they have to vote to keep you on.”
Only 150 percent, Jake? Might wanna kick it up to 175, dog.
“Look at the competition,” he says, “and [Chad] Ochocinco has 800,000 people on his twitter! I have 16,000. By the way, my twitter is @JakePavelka1.”
Solid plug, J. He does raise a valid point, though many fans do vote for who they like (hence, Kate Gosselin lasted five weeks). Still, Jake feels he’s up against it.
“It seems like everyone else is established in Hollywood, or they’ve walked on the moon, or run touchdowns for the Bengals. Everybody has a huge personality.”
Well, the show is Dancing with the Stars, man. It’s not Dancing with Peeps From Other Reality Shows and Celebrity Gossip Tabloids So We Can Boost Ratings.
The future Mr. Vienna Girardi, who was “shocked” he landed in the bottom two at one point, has stayed out of it the past two weeks as the field has narrowed.

The 10th season of Dancing with the Stars is officially underway, and while we already ran down Monday’s results, here are some things you might have missed:
Dedicated to dad: Shannen Doherty signed on to do the show for her father, Tom, who suffered a stroke in December, and wept after her debut Viennese waltz.
“I couldn’t keep it together,” the original Beverly Hills: 90210 star said. “I always said I’d never be that girl that cried on camera, but I did. Oh well, it’s my Daddy.”
Brooke brings it. Brooke Burke’s co-hosting debut was a success, for one reason “Having a partner like Tom [Bergeron] who’s impeccable helps,” Burke said.
Just wing it: As for another one of Monday evening’s surprise success stories, Pamela Anderson claims she “has never rehearsed for anything a day in her life.”
Her sexy bed head-inspired cha cha was surely worth the hours she and her partner, newcomer Damian Whitewood, logged in the studio the past three weeks.
“It was a lot of training,” says Anderson. “We want to do something different every time. It’s not always going to be sex, drugs, rock and roll, ripping off clothes.”
Pamela Anderson was inspired by Pamela Anderson last night.
Star struck. Cheryl Burke sure was. Rehearsing with Chad Ochocinco in Miami, he lives “was like being with the President,” she joked. “He’s the king of Miami.”
“People stopped their cars to say hello. He has a great life,” she says, though he has to work on “his McDonald’s-heavy diet … no idea how he has a 12-pack.”
The girls of Jake Pavelka. The Bachelor may be over, but he’s still got women following him everywhere. Jake’s fiancee, Vienna Girardi was front and center.
Joining Vienna were the other ladies in Pavelka’s life - his mother, Sally, former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand, and even The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris.
All the women were rooting for pilot, who turned in a respectable waltz with Chelsie Hightower. Performing in front of the live audience “was awesome,” he said.
Who are you rooting for on Dancing with the Stars?
See the original post here:
The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka has totally been hitting on women not named Vienna Girardi since the show, according to a scandalous, unsubstantiated new report.
At a January Dallas Mavericks basketball game, an attractive young woman caught the eye of the pilot, who got engaged to Vienna on the season finale beforehand.
A witness says that Jake followed her from her seat to the concession stand where he dropped the ultimate pickup line: “You might have seen me on a TV show.”
What a smooth operator. He followed that up with “I think you are so beautiful, and you shouldn’t be standing here alone.” Man, this guy has a way with women.
Jake Pavelka was rebuffed, however, as the woman in question turned out to be engaged, and her “beefy fiance” put the kibosh on The Bachelor’s advances.
Has Jake already been straying from Vienna? Or trying to?
Other sources say Pavelka isn’t as serious as his bride-to-be Girardi when the cameras are off: “Everything he’s ever done has been with the goal of getting to the next level,” one source says, and you won’t believe what level he means.
When the religious star embarked on The Bachelor taping, he claimed to have “zero intention” of marrying any of the Bachelorettes. A source reports that he told his girlfriend Tanya Douglas that his goal was completely spiritual.
“He told her he was going to lead 25 women to God,” the insider claims.
That quote has a greater chance of being real than Jake has of actually walking down the aisle with Vienna (even if they talk a good game about procreating hard).
What do you think of these latest Jake Pavelka cheating rumors? Anything his fiancee should worry about? Will Jake and Vienna Girardi last?
The Bachelor winner Vienna Girardi is one classy chick.
Before being picked by Jake Pavelka as his trophy fiancee on the ABC dating show, she was doing the usual stuff - bikini and occasional topless modeling.
We don’t know what kind of calendar features topless girls in scarves holding giant stuffed beavers, but thank goodness TMZ unearthed a photo from it:
Vienna Girardi’s beaver: Insert crude joke of choice here!
Despite rumors that she is an airhead, and/or a manipulative b!tch who “tricked” Jake, and haters speculating that they absolutely will not last, they appear happy.
At least until Jake sees these ridiculous photos of his (hopefully) drunk future wife circulating online. That won’t be good. We give it a few weeks at the most …
