Jenny won’t be friends with Jesse if he picks Trish; his Giants future is in the air.

Jenny won’t be friends with Jesse if he picks Trish; his Giants future is in the air.
Jesse Palmer sent his spy, Jenny, home on last week’s episode of The Bachelor 5. Not that he was taking her advice anyway: Gold-digging demon spawn Trish remains as one of the final six women. Jenny says, “Trish is the type of woman that makes all of your other relationships in life suffer.” If he ends up with her, Jenny says that’s it for their friendship: “It’s not that I wouldn’t want to be his friend anymore; I wouldn’t be able to. Jesse and I have a very unique and close relationship, and she would change that forever.” Meanwhile, Jesse also might not have a future relationship with the Giants: Because he “wasn’t impressive in leading the team after [Kerry] Collins went down with an ankle injury late last season,” Jesse’s “future with the Giants also is uncertain with the signing of Jared Lorenzen, the 280-pounder from Kentucky who looks more like an offensive lineman than a quarterback,” reports say.
