ABC can’t list her as “unemployed” anymore! Bachelor Pad 2 alum Vienna Girardi just got herself a new gig as a store owner. She tweeted the news on Tuesday, October 4, 2011.

@ViennaGirardi: “I am opening a Clothing Boutique in Orlando, FL near UCF. I'll keep you up on the progress and what I'm working on. Today: sign design.”

Vienna has been open about her struggle to find work after Jake Pavelka proposed to her on The Bachelor Season 14. As she said during the second part of the After the Final Beatdown special, it’s hard for people to take you seriously as an employee after you appear on the show. She’s gone into interviews where the people in the office just want to take her pictures, then say they can’t hire her because she’d be too distracting.

Well, self-employment is a good fix for that. She is from Florida and her family still lives there, but last we heard she was living with boyfriend Kasey Kahl in the L.A. area. So how is it going to work? We shall watch the endeavor with great interest.
