Scandal! Did former “Dante’s Cove” star Gregory Michael play a role in the “Bachelor” break-up?
Kinda hate to give any more publicity to the sham of a couple that was Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi but I don’t mind giving some space to Gregory Michael who has always been a sweetheart to me.
Gregory is straight in real life but had a steamy starring role in the gay soap Dante’s Cove and currently has a more toned-down role as a gay college student in the ABC Family series Greek.
So what is he doing involved in this Jake-Vienna mess?
Amid reports that Vienna was possibly involved with him after they were seen at a charity event over the weekend Gregory said to RadarOnline: “I’m not a homewrecker. Vienna and I met on Saturday night at the Children’s Oncology Prom, a charity that I am very passionate about.”
He told Ok! that he and Vienna “hit it off and hung out and danced the night away” adding, “She made it very clear that it was over with Jake.”
If a relationship does develop, it sounds like it won’t be tough for it to be less exciting than whatever was going on – or not going on – between Jake and Vienna. She’s spilling it all in the new issue of Star Magazine.
“We haven’t been intimate in months now,” she told the mag. “More than four months. At first, his excuse was that he was fasting. The second excuse was that he didn’t feel like it. And the third excuse was that he said that he felt that I wouldn’t understand that he wants to wait until marriage, even though I told him I’d support him.”
She went on, “The last excuse was that we fight so much that I push him away. I was like, really — which excuse is it? I literally have been living six months with this guy who won’t be intimate with me!”
“He kisses me only if we’re on a red carpet or if cameras are there,” she addedd. “Besides that, I have to ask for a kiss — and if I do he’ll pucker his lips and just peck me. I’m like, that’s how I kiss my grandmother!”
Jake, who called Vienna his “best friend” when he was voted off of Dancing With the Stars, tells People that he is hurt Vienna has sold her story to the tabloid: “That seriously breaks my trust. I would never do that to her. I am beside myself that she would dishonor the relationship like that.”
He added that allegations about their sex life are “insane.”
“I’m not going to be surprised if more stuff comes out,” he said. “I have no idea. I’m just putting my seatbelt on. … America couldn’t stand that I chose her, and I’d defend her. For everything to come apart like this, I absolutely feel betrayed. I feel like I don’t even know her.”
Well, ya don’t I guess.
Jake is currently filming a role on the show Drop Dead Diva. I’ve got an idea for his next job: if Here! ever revives the Dante’s Cove franchise, why not give Jake a role as a vampire on the show!
