Nasty Breakup Between 'Bachelor' Jake and Vienna

6/22/2010 9:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Here's what's official about the breakup between "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi -- it's officially nasty, with Jake accusing his former fiancee of cheating and Vienna accusing him of being "a fame whore."

Sources tell TMZ the couple broke up during a phone call at around 6 last night.  Sources connected with "The Bachelor" tell us Jake believed Vienna was cheating with Gregory Michael, an actor on the ABC Family show "Greek."  Vienna has vehemently denied cheating on Jake via tweet.

For her part, sources say she pulled the plug on the relationship because she felt constantly abandoned for photo shoots and other media events.  She's telling people, "Jake is a fame whore."

Jake proposed to Vienna during the finale of "The Bachelor" on March 1.

Vienna's stepmom, Lisa Girardi, tells TMZ her daughter actually moved out on Saturday, claiming Jake "is a total fraud," claiming "I think he picked her because she is a dramatic person and it was good for the ratings."

Lisa goes on to say, "In real life, they never kissed, didn't have a romantic relationship and he never told her that he loved her."

Lisa adds, when her stepdaughter left, she left a note, along with her engagement ring.

A rep for the former couple said, "Jake and Vienna have split.  They appreciate the respect for their privacy at this time."


Nick Lachey -- Time to Ditch the Bachelor Pad

Nick Lachey is desperately trying to leave his bachelor days behind -- the famous ex-husband put his $6.8 million post-Jessica Simpson mansion up for sale ... and it is full-on awesome.

The Bel Air home is 5,214 sq. ft. ... has 4 bedrooms ... and it comes with one of the most baller pools we've ever seen.

No word if dumping the property has anything to do with Lachey's recent reunion with former MTV veejay and all-around jaw-dropping smokeshow Vanessa Minnillo -- but if anyone can get a man to sell off his bachelor's paradise, she can.

Of course, it's neither amazing nor alarming that the couple split; what IS astounding is how little bad press Pavelka has, thus, received. The prolongation of the homely Vienna's tenure on The Bachelor made sense because she played the ratings-rich villain. That Jake actually selected her, though, was a little surprising UNTIL his announced stint on DWTS. It then became clear that the guy was, indeed, THE celebrity-whore in the family. For sure, he's all-together more tolerable than the sissy-voiced Bob Guirney (sp?), but who knew he wanted a media career? Then, it became obvious that the peculiar Vienna WAS the best choice to achieve this secret goal. What's also incredible is that all these people continue to question whether or not The Bachelor's process can earnestly result in true love. The more relevant issue is how scripted and directed this show (and others like it) actually are. If you're watching the "allie show" with a critical eye, it's abundantly clear that an authentic moment is next-to-impossible to find. The series is nothing but a virtual showcase for, as Vienna would allegedly call them , budding fame whores. So, forget the romance; try, instead to figure out who'll be on a follow-up "reality" competition, making the minor talk-show rounds, or performing some pathetic hosting duties in the off-hours of a lesser cable network. Wonder whether or not The Bachelor's producers actually invest in particular contestants. THERE's the real competition.

If you all took a second glance at the photo on top of this page of Jake & Vienna, She looks like an Animated Mr. Potato head. The long droopy face, the bulging eyers ready to pop out of their sockets. Her face looks like you could stretch it like that old 70's toy, Stretch Armstrong.

That was the last reality show my wife and I watched and probably the last we will ever watch. It seems contrived from the beginning as if it were a scripted show that pretended to be reality. Real reality is what the rest of us live, not what Hollywood tells us it is. If Jake and Vienna are actually like they were on screen, than they deserved each other and they now deserve every comment posted on this site and any other. Hollywood, quit giving us crap and calling it cuisine.

Vienna is the ugliest thing I have seen on that show. Jake should have put a bag over her head and they may have had a chance.

What a surprise! Everyone knew that except Jake. Vienna went on TV for fame. Jake's fame is fleeting. Actor's fame lasts a bit longer, especially if he is a regular on a TV series. Of course she cheated on Jake for Mike. Besides, her face is too big for Jake but she and Mike look better together in pix becaue their heads are the same size. For someone looking for fame, that is important.

He is good looking, and she is butt ugly, especially her eyes. He can do a lot better. I can't believe he picked her. He must have been drunk.

I would have picked Ali, She's adorable, and HOTT, and so dram sweet. I don't care if others don't like her. And well Ali would be better off in the real world than the few choices she has remaining... I am finally glad Kasey is off the show. Damn he was boreline of (NPD)Narcissistic personality disorder...Anyway I hope Ali does the right thing and not choose any of those idiots.

Jake is looking sort of sickly in this picture, his face is really thin and looking aged. Vienna has a beautiful smile, pretty nose, and features, as well as inner beauty. Have any of you noticed Ali's nose, it looks like a pig's nose? Her profile is horrible too! Vienna has her whole life ahead of her, and she is still fairly young. I think it is wise of her to move on with her life, and she could do a lot better than Jake, he isn't all that he puts out to be either.

Said from the beginning that it wouldn't last. She is a big baby and he just wanted to get noticed ,thinking he would find the right one with all the coverage he's getting. He is a fake and just wanted a little fame. Good luck to each of you. I liked Jake at first and thought Allie was the one for him. She got over him in a hurry also!!!!!!
