Rumor has it that there's some serious trouble in paradise between The Bachelor Season 17 star Sean Lowe and his bride-to-be, Catherine Giudici. Despite the fact that Sean and Catherine are the cutest couple ever, Catherine is reportedly "bored and lonely" in Los Angeles, where Sean is filming Dancing With The Stars.|

The good news? Sean insists that these reports couldn't be further from the truth, and tells People that he and Catherine are "happy and could not be better." Phew, now we can sleep at night! While cuddling our Sean Lowe-shaped body pillow, of course.

"Nobody knows anything outside of me and Catherine and the people who are closest to us," Sean continues, adding that the gossip surrounding his relationship with Catherine is nothing short of "ridiculous."

"Typically, we don't read [tabloids], but if we're checking out at the grocery store, we'll see them and we'll flip through and laugh," Sean says. "It's all nonsense. It's all fictional."

As for Catherine losing patience with Sean's stint on Dancing With The Stars, he says that she couldn't be more supportive. "I wanted to make sure she was okay with it and she said, 'Absolutely, I'm going to support you,'" Sean explains. "I couldn't ask for anything better. I couldn't do this without her."

If all goes according to plan, Sean and Catherine will tie the knot in summer 2013, which means we have T-minus just a few months to shop for the perfect dress! You know, to wear while watching their wedding on ABC, binge eating celebratory cake.
