Vienna Girardi: Emily Didn’t Tell America What Went Wrong With Brad
Gather round, class. Vienna Girardi is going to give us a lesson in “How to Explain Your Breakup on Television.” Because if anyone knows how to make a public split interesting, it's Season 14 Bachelor winner Vienna and her ex-fiance Jake Pavelka. No one left that trainwreck of a TV special unclear about why they broke up.
Vienna just talked to Zap2it about Emily Maynard's solo breakup special and the upcoming Bachelor Pad 2 star still has some lingering questions.
"I didn't feel like she told us what went wrong," Vienna said. "When Jake and I did our break-up interview, America wanted to know what happened, and that's what I told them. I told them exactly what had been going on... the truth. In Emily's interview, we didn't get any of that. 'We know you're not together, but why? What really happened?'"
We don't always see eye to eye with Miss V, but she's right about the Bachelor breakup protocol.
"Like [Emily] said, when you go on the show and you go to find love, you're opening up your life and your relationship to all of America," Vienna said. "Then, if you break up, it's your obligation to tell America why. And if you do, they will leave you alone. ... I went on that break-up interview and said, 'I'm going to be 100-percent truthful and say exactly what happened, so there are no more questions.' When people come up to me, they may talk about it, but they never ask,'Why did you break up?' That's because I laid it out there, A to Z."
