Last Dance for Helio and Fiancee!

11/28/2007 2:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Helio may have waltzed into winning "Dancing With the Stars" by doing a Paso Doble ... but the Paso Uno is what he's doing now!

TMZ has confirmed business executive Aliette Vazquez has broken off her engagement to the "Dancing" winner. Vazquez and the race car driver had been dating for more than six years and have been engaged for a year. "There have been a lot of rumors and a lot of misinformation out there," Vazquez's rep Howard Bragman tells us, and she "wanted to set the record straight."

Bragman told us, "This is a personal decision and I ask the media to respect the privacy of Miss Vazquez and her family. She has no plans to talk to the media, but reserves that right if she needs to clarify misinformation or defend her reputation."

Let's get ready to Rumba!

UPDATE: More good stuff! We've learned that the two have not spoken in weeks. And so you know -- this has nothing to do with partner Julianne Hough. It's just between Helio and Aliette.

WASN'T SHE APOLLO'S PARTNER? IF SO, IT WAS SAID LAST DANCE COMP. THAT THEY WERE DATEING. I DON'T RECALL SEEING ALI AT THE SHOW, THEY SHOWED EVERYONE'S WIFE OR FRIEND, EXCEPT HER. OLD MARIE WAS JUST TRYING TO FIND A MAN ANY MAN. I WAS SO GLAD THEY FINALLY GOT RID OF HER, WHICH TOOK WAY TOO LONG. DIDN'T CHETHAH GIRL AND HER MAN TEAR IT UP LAST NIGHT? THEY SHOULD NEVER BEEN VOTED OFF. WHY HAS NO WOMAN EVER WON? NOT LIKE THERE WERE NO CLEAR WINNER (MEL B.)

Helio's ex-fiancee is obviously ONE CLASS ACT!!! Don't know if i would have been able to allow this to go on in silence for so many weeks!!! Clearly she cared enough not to humiliate him and possibly affect the outcome of fan's votes.
As for Miss Hough, having met the fiancee as was mentioned on The View, i would have expected a little more respect for her, as I'm sure she would have appreciated if the shoe was on the other foot!!!

Loretta Compton and Lucille,

I would agree were it not for the fact that Mel B has been dancing for years. Although I don't think that she has had the extensive dance training Sabrina had, she is still a professional singer/dancer/performer and this show is supposed to be about taking people out of their comfort zone, teaching them something new and see who learns it the best. If you look at Mel's dances throughout the season, she was good in the beginning and although she improved, it wasn't all that drastic. Personally I wasn't impressed by either of her dances on Monday. By contrast, Helio had never danced before and he improved tremendously over the course of the season.

As far as this article concerning the break-up goes, I hope it isn't true. Also, if you watch tapes of Apolo & Julianne during the show last season, public appearances and on the tour, you will know that there is nothing between H&J because they don't have half the chemistry as A&J.

If you guys remember last season Julliane didn't give Apollo a kiss after there last dance so maybe this means something. Hopefully becasue they just have so much chemistry, even more than Julliane had with Apollo last season. Helio I think definetly had a thing for Julliane and hopefully Julliane has a thing for him aswell because they are just so cute together.
Helio + Julliane = Love

You are one Ugly American and do not speak for the rest of us. I am disgusted by the xenophobics on these sites that are uneducated, unworldly and just plain classless. Helio is full of charm, class and talent..something you won't ever have in your trailer park world!

Seriously    

BTW for all you Mel lovers, it's a known fact that she does women and men.
Plays for both teams, so you can call her gay too!
Her husband isn't even a Belafonte!!! His real name is Stansbury and it seems he
likes rich women to take care of him.

I think that is a shame. You would think that after 23 years of marriage and two children, that there would be more to fight for. Everyone takes the short cut and gets divorced instead of fighting for that love that brought them together in the first place. After 23 years of marriage, it shouldn't be that easy to just let go and give up. The Hogans should fight for one another and the love that they discovered 23 years ago.

WHOREianne broke off her own engagement right after last year's win and it was rumored she was having an affair with Apollo. Now she's having an affair with another partner. Julianne is a whore and a homewrecker. Why would Helio leave his fiance for this piece of trash? She's been with him probably before he was famous in the racing world but he rather throw it all away for this slut who cheated on her own fiance.
