The Bachelorette

Reality Steve: Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski Have Split!

Chris Harrison, you may have to clear your schedule for another on-air showdown. According to spoiler king Reality Steve, Season 5 Bachelorette Jillian Harris and her chosen one, Ed Swiderski, are done. No more engagement. No more hot dogs. No more tight green shorts. No more anything.

To quote Steve's blog post today:

"And finally, I mentioned after I’d gotten back from Chicago a couple weeks a note about how not to get your hopes up about Jillian and Ed ever getting married because it wasn’t going to happen. I can further update that story. I’m surprised the tabloids haven’t run with this yet, but I’m sure they will soon. Jillian and Ed are done. Finished. Over. Don’t know who broke up with who, don’t know any reasons behind it, I just know those two are over despite what they are publicly saying or tweeting or facebooking to each other. I swear I’ll never understand those two’s relationship until the day I die. But now that’s in the past since they’re done. Yet another unsuccessful couple from this show..."

Actually, Jillian probably won't go the way of Jake, no matter what happened. She's not into the public break-up thing. And it's not like she and Ed are strangers to Rumorville, thanks to his, uh, supposed exploits in Chicago (which has become the land where Bachelor/ette relationships go to die).

Fingers crossed that Jillian is still happy with Ed and not kicking herself for dumping gorgeous Kiptyn Locke or adorable Reid Rosenthal. But if the break-up story is true, that brings us back to Trista and Ryan Sutter as the only successful Bachelorette couple. If they ever break up, the sky will fall. (For the record: Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney are a Bachelor couple. That track record is even worse than The Bachelorette's.)
