The Bachelor

Vienna Girardi Talks Boyfriend, Boutique, and Leaving Reality TV Behind — Except DWTS!

Vienna Girardi has turned her bad girl reputation into a business.

The Bachelor alum recently opened a boutique called Vixen in Orlando and the men’s section is called Villain — how apropos! Vienna talked to the Orlando Sentinel about her new business and her new life with boyfriend Lee Smith, to whom she returned after her split with Bachelor Pad 2’s Kasey Kahl.

“I stayed single for several months after Couples Therapy but I did end up back with the love of my life, Lee Smith,” Vienna said. “I was supposed to stay single for a year, but we had already been apart for too long. We are very happy.”

She said she’s back in Central Florida for good. “I am back with Lee, my college sweetheart. We are buying a house by Waterford Lakes now. I work at my boutique five days a week, so I’m pretty busy. I’m still doing a little bit of Hollywood stuff here and there, but just appearances, music videos and some other little stuff that allow me to stay here in Florida.”

At this point, Vienna has done The Bachelor Season 14, Bachelor Pad Season 2 and Couples Therapy with Kasey — and that’s just about enough for her.

“I do not want to do any more reality TV unless Dancing With the Stars calls,” Vienna said of the show Bachelor Jake Pavelka was on while they were engaged. “Then I would be on a plane in no time. It is the only show I watch and would love to be on. I have turned down several reality shows in the last five months because I have been building my boutique.”

So if ABC wants to see more of Vienna, they have to give her some dancing shoes. Wonder if they sell any at Vixen?
