In recent weeks, Tony and Blakeley have been tweeting cryptic love messages to each other and, right this minute, Wetpaint Entertainment can exclusively report that the two lovebirds are currently enjoying a spa getaway at the posh Coeur d’Alene resort in Idaho.
“This isn’t just a fling,” a source tells us. “Tony and Blakeley are really into each other.”
So into each other, in fact, that Tony’s five year-old son is already a fan. Says the source: “He hasn’t met Blakeley in person yet, but they’ve spoken on the phone.”
But is Blakeley, who lives in North Carolina and who came off as a total vixen with Ben Flajnik in Season 16 of The Bachelor, really the right fit for single dad Tony, who resides in Portland?
“Tony’s telling friends Blakeley is really misunderstood,” the source explains. “She’s not the way she came off on TV. In person, he says she’s very sweet and very loving.”
As for the distance factor? “That remains to be seen,” the source concludes. “But right now, they’re having a blast together.”
