report says Ian and Meredith are over, but they say they’re living together.
ABC shouldn’t hold its breath for a Bachelorette 2 wedding special, at least if a gossip report is true. Lloyd Grove reports (third item) on a Star magazine report that the couple fought in a restaurant, and it wasn’t pretty. Ian: “I hate L.A.! I’m moving back to New York in two weeks.” Meredith: “I’m not coming with you.” Ian: “That’s fine with me.” However, it sounds like that was just a fight. The couple also appeared yesterday on KATU’s AM Northwest in Portland, where they said that they have yet to set a wedding date, but they’re living together and furnishing their apartment with Ikea furniture. They’re also doing fashion shows for Tommy Hilfiger together.
