Ex-Fiancee to Helio: Lights, Camera, Split!

11/29/2007 1:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Ooh, snap! The split between "Dancing With the Stars" champ Helio Castroramalamadingdong and ex-fiancee Aliette Vazquez is getting good!

Sources connected to the couple tell TMZ that the reason the duo split was simple -- Helio "went Hollywood!" We're told his newfound "fame" was too much for his longtime gal, who just couldn't deal. As his popularity grew, so did his ego! That's when Aliette alley-ooped and hit the road.

We're told she is much happier and "over him." Our spies saw her selling her jewelry line yesterday at the swank Biltmore Hotel in Miami.

We've heard she's waltzing on with her life.

Helio - People have nothing better to do than "knock" the other guy or gal. Somehow it makes them feel better. Have fun, enjoy life, and whatever will be, will be. I had a friend tell me one time way back that she enjoyed when someone "dissed her". It meant that she bothered them in some quirky way or another. MEOW!!!!

Good. He should be hooking up with Julianne anyway. They look great together and are a nice couple. Julianne is alot hotter anyway.

I am a racing fan and a big fan of Helios and this just makes me mad at her. She tells everyone that she wants her privacy, but she told the papers about the end of the engagement. Helio didn't say a word until she did. I don't believe that Helio is with his dance partner. If you see him at the tracks you would know he is that friendly with everyone, he is just an outgoing guy. As a race fan all I care is about how he races and not his love life, but I hate it when people attack a guy like Helio. From whats been said she broke it off 2 weeks into the show so how would Helio get an ego.

Obviously a lot of you do not watch open-wheel racing. Helio has shown the same amount of enthusiasm in his racing career as he has shown with his dancing. This is the man who, after winning a race, will climb the fence showing his appreciation to the fans, along with his energy for the sport.

Let's look closely at the two girls....there's no doubt Julieanne is far better looking than his ex fiance. A lot of the women that are racers' "arm candy" are just gold diggers. I say good for him for being rid of her.

We don't really know what is going on with all the major players here, folks. Maybe Helio went Hollywood and maybe he didn't. His ex could just be getting back at him for not paying as much attention to her during the dance contest as he used to. Or maybe Helio and Julianne are romantically involved. And maybe they aren't, after all, she already has a handsome boyfriend who is reputedly an excellent professional actor. Were you in their situation, you would not appreciate a gang of ignorant boobs making all kinds of rediculous assumptions about you.

Helio is a nobody. It's not like Drew Lachey was a big sucess after he won DWTS. Helio, you got your 5 minutes of fame, and now a new season...they'll be another poor D-lister to replace you, probably Florence Henderson

I think Helio did a fantastic job learning to dance for the show, and sure he was all excited about winning. Wouldn't you be? I really do not think he has "gone Hollywood", just caught up in the moment. As for the girlfriend, her loss is another lucky woman's gain. For someone to say he is having "sex" with Julienne, what??? were they there???? People always have to start rumors. Remember the rumors last year with her partner also because they had a good chemistry. And even if they did have a relationship forming, whose business is it but theirs? People, get a life.

I THOUGHT HELIO WAS A GOOD LOOKING MAN AND JULLIANNE WAS A BEAUTIFUL YOUNG LADY BUT I THINK THAT SHE HOLDS HER COMPOSURE BECAUSE OF THE SHOW AND WHO SHE IS AND WHAT SHE DOES THIS IS THE WHOLE TROUBLE WITH THE WORLD EVERYONE ALWAYS ALWAYS THINKS THE WORST OF PEOPLE A REAL SHAME

I think Helio was very entertaining and funny. If i was 40 years younger i would have been swept up in the drama. They had to practice and be in very close touch for 10 weeks. I don't know why the girlfriend waited 6 years! It was a fun show to watch and with the writers strike on it was fun to watch.

As an Indy car racing fan, I used to like Helio. But his ego has been growing uncontrollably since he won his 2nd Indy 500 and the gig on DWS was the cherry on top of the cake. How he won the DWS Championship is beyond me, it certainly was not on technical merit. DWS has become a flipping popularity contest, not a dancing contest. MelB and her partner were easily the more accomplished dancers and were nudged by someone speeding in pit lane.

To all you out there who think Helio Castroneves is a nobody think again and do your homework. He's a 2 time Indy 500 winner. His ex is the nobody .Never heard of her before. PARA BEMS HELIO. VAI PRA FRENTE.

It does take trust and patience to stay with a work-a-holic, prefectionist, and true competitor. Jealousy has no room in the mix, and if he seemed to be having fun at what he did on "DWTS's," I believe, it amazed him that he had that much talent to dance in him, and it probably didn't hurt having Julianna encouraging and giving him the confidence to do well at his performances. Sounds like Helio's fiancee' was looking for any excuse to get out of the relationship, as he seemed to respectful to bad mouth or disrespect her.
